The Home of the Week— Four-Level House for a Small Lot By ANDY LANG Designed for a small lot, this multi-level house has some contemporary variations that satisfy the current demand for custom detailing. •While basically a bi-level, with most of the rooms either up or down half-a-flight from the front foyer, there actually are four levels. Just to the left of the entrance door is the formal living room, highlighted by a cathedral ceiling and the open stairs to what architect Lester Cohen calls a dining dais, where a? curved rail extends over the living area. It's a dramatic effect but should not make you forget the maintenance practicality of a living room that has its own level. Just as the living room is below the main level, so is a large so-called teenage room a few steps below the lower level. Here again we have the maintenance advantage of a room which is the only one on its level. To recapitulate, the living room is by itself on the entrance foyer level; the dining dais, kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the main level; a separate foyer, giant family room (28' by 13'), hobby room, lavatory and laundry are on the lower level; and a teenage room, the same size as the family room, is on the lowest level. That's a lot of living area in a house whose over-all dimensions, including a front porch, are only 40' 2" by 40' 6". It also provides plenty of flexibility, since a budget-conscious family can .finish the two lower levels at a later time if it desires. 6 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, Oct. 30, 1970 S-69 STATISTICS Design S-69 has a living room, dining area, kitchen, three bedrooms, two baths and foyer, totaling 1,424 square feet of living space. The two lower levels have a family room, teen-age room, hobby room or fourth bedroom, lavatory, laundry room and separate foyer. Over-all dimensions, which include a front porch, are 40' 2" by 40' 6". A one-car garage can be expanded to handle two cars if space permits. In moving from the front foyer to the second or main level, note how traffic to the bedrooms and baths is routed around the dining area. And there's no need to enter the area at all to reach the kitchen, which has a door just to the right at the top of the stairs. Special features in the kitchen include an island counter and an open-railed dinette with two windows at the front. Another feature, which is optional, is a modern dumbwaiter to bring groceries in from the garage or take refuse out of the kitchen without toting anything through the house itself. three bedrooms at the rear have two windows each. The master bedroom, in a far corner, has a stall shower and vanitoryas well as a large walk-in closet. Sliding door closets are shown for the other two bedrooms, plus a linen closet in a central spot. The family bathroom has a powder room with a double vanitory, separated from an alcove tub and toilet, and a door opening from the bedroom hall. The whole setup is ideal for entertaining. There's the living room to take care of a formal gathering and the downstairs' family and teen-age rooms to handle informal parties of any size. Sliding glass doors in the family room lead to a rear patio. The hobby room can be FLAGSTONED and wood-post porch is a most attractive introduction to this multi-level house. Porch overhang extends over two front steps; flagstone extends over one-car garage. HOME LOANS FOR BUYING & BUHPIN6 WHICHEVER YOU CHOOSE .. - be sure to see us for financing.
