BOWEN There's something new in the living room of this graceful ranch: a sunken conversation corner warmed by the fireplace and enclosed by a curving couch arid elegant iron railing. The cozy corner is three steps below the level of the living room. The difference in level plus the railing give it an air of intimacy that would be impossible in a large area, yet it doesn't detract from the unity of the living room--dining room "L". During large entertainments guests can circulate throughout the living room, which has j| There's Nothing Liko GENUINE TILE C*romft HI* KOESTLER TILE CO.

When the crowd thins out, however, the conversation corner makes an ideal spot for the hostess to take off her shoes and begin enjoying herself. Credit for Ihis fresh contribution to gracious living goes to Architect Rudolph Matern, who designed B-21 in the House of the Week series. Surprisingly, despite this sunken note of glamor, B-21 is engineered for the economy-minded. Its total living area is 1,337 square feet--not 'arge by today's standards. The room total is seven: L-shaped living and dining room, three bedrooms and a bath. Plans call for a basement, but the house could be built on a slab foundation. Over-all dimensions are 67' 8" in width by 24' 9" in depth. Extensive use of brick on the exterior contributes to the trim well-proportioned appearance am makes the house look unusually long and low.
