A front-to-back orientation gives it an advantage in fitting into tighter lots, even at 2,500 square feet on upper floors. Three bedrooms, including the master, occur upstairs, with an additional bedroom on the 971-square-footlower level, which also has a two-car garage.
The stairs and elevator create a zone defined by two masonry walls. Skylights above flood this zone with light. Views between living spaces peek through stone arches. The two-story windowed wall creates a way to bring nature inside. Exposed structural wood decking and Douglas fir beam work are natural, beautiful and durable materials that complement the interior stonework.
