Narrow lot 'Creston' home design offers reverse living
The Creston home design is a contemporary plan showcasing shed roof profiles and vertical cedar siding accents. At only 30 feet wide, this plan is ideal for narrow building lots on hilly urban terrain.
The two-car garage is accessed from the back. A small, covered patio leads to an informal entry that brings you straight into the kitchen. The formal entry is on the opposite side of the home. From the street view the home appears to be two stories. The stairs wind up to the covered balcony and front door. The living on the second floor is a trend known as reverse living – ideal for those building on hillside lots where the view is out of the front of the home.
The formal entry opens directly to the living room. The gathering space is open, allowing people to flow freely from the living to the dining to the kitchen. A center island with an eating bar marks the boundary of the kitchen while adding to the available workspace and informal seating. A couple of steps out of the kitchen brings you to the garage access and utility room.
The owners’ suite is also on the main, upper level. Windows on the front allow any view to also be enjoyed from this peaceful retreat. Other owners’ suite features include a private bath with step-in shower, twin sinks, and a walk-in closet.
A staircase off the kitchen leads to the daylight basement level. Downstairs are two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, under stair storage, and a family room. A sliding glass door opens the family room up to the front yard and a generous sized covered deck.
