Craftsman-style duplex design 'Artondale' offers private units
You can see the Craftsman influence in the exterior of the Artondale.
From the use of shingles in the gable ends to the stone based columns, this two story duplex plan is a treat for the eyes. The separation of the units is visible even from the street; only the wall of the two car garages is shared.
Each unit of the Artondale is identical, so only one will be described.
Slender posts with wide stone bases frame the front door. The covered porch is cozy but welcoming. Inside the entry offers a coat closet just inside the front door and opens up to the living room or the staircase leading to the second floor.
The main floor is filled with the great room. Living room, dining room and kitchen are completely open, allowing people and conversations to flow between the three spaces.
An eating bar extends from the kitchen providing some visual separation while adding to the available seating. A sliding glass door off the kitchen opens to the back covered patio. The hallway that extends from the great room leads beyond a storage closet to a half bathroom, laundry room, and access to the attached two car garage.
The two story floor plan has all three bedrooms on the second floor, providing nice separation between the living spaces and the sleeping area. The staircase separates the owners’ suite from the two secondary bedrooms.
The owners’ suite is well-appointed and decorated with a vaulted ceiling. A pocket door slides to reveal the walk-in closet, and at the back of the suite is the private bathroom.
Each unit is comfortably laid out with just under 1,500 square feet of living area, so it is easy to see why the Artondale is a great duplex design.
