Photo Tour

The South door opens into the Sunspace, which is a wonderful sitting/breakfast area - perfect for reading the paper, watching wildlife, or taking a nap. In the Arcadia, the stairs to the lower level are in the Sunspace. This stairwell is a natural ventilation area for outer shell air/heat circulation, and allows for maximum living space in the inner shell.

The master bed and bath are on the West end of the home (although a mirror-image floorplan can be built). The high ceilings and paddle fans are some of the features that work to keep the home cool, with little or no need for air-conditioning.

The informal entry is on the East end of the house which faces the driveway. This home is tucked into an older city neighborhood and blends perfectly into this wooded lot.
