TK --June 29,1975 Suntla\ (,a*rtt-MaH -- ; : Clwrtasion. West Virgin!* Charming Cape Cod Both Practical, By Aidy Lug Tke Attociated freu Here's a charming Cape God, a one and one-half story house that is as practical as it is attractive. It has simple materials and windows, yet is done, with taste 'and precision and some well-studied'details on the economy side. The side walls employ no expensive materials, but have a solid appeal by virtue of the narrow exposure wood shingles, contrasted by a small amount of board and batten for relief. , · » * » ' . . · . · . . : THE EXTERIOR of Design 1M22 is composed of two wings, a main one and a half story "original" wing with a smaller one-story family room, mud room, garage wing. Windows are multipaned, wood, dduble^hung, although pre-finished aluminum windows could be substituted if desired. ' Inside, architect Jerold L. Axelrod has provided a simplicity of planning that achieves functional rooms without wasting any space. A modest-sized, raised entrance platform has been designed just inside the front door. ; . ' * * * · " ' . THE ADJOINING living room has a wide arch opening into the rear dining area, thus creating a bright and expansive front-to-rear vista. The dining area, in turn, has been designed wide open to the kitchen, and both rooms are open to the adjacent family room, thus creating a spacious feeling.,: The kitchen is a well conceived L-shape with a rear .yard window over the sink; . sliding glass doors connect the dining area to the rear yard. . * *'* . ,· . THE FAMILY room features an attractive front-rear vista, as well, with its large front .and rear windows; a wood-burning brick fireplace is included here. . · Adjacent to the family r$om. is a mud room-laundry-utility rooni. J This service space has direct access to the garage and family room, as Well,as front,and rear entrances for the maximum convenience of use. The front .door .is ideal for servicemen and deliveries, and the.rear door is an ideal rear yard' entry, There are two bedrooms on the main floor. Closet space is.abundant;' note the double closet in the master ;bedroom. Both bedrooms enter from'an extra wide hall, along which is the first-floor bathroom, centrally located.' * ; » » . THE ATTIC floor need not be finished initially. The.basic plans provide for an initially .with a door at the top of the stairs. When needed/this growth space provides-for · two -good-sized bedrooms, an abundance.of cloSets and a,sec : ond full bath. Furthering the goals of practicality.- and economy are the facts that these two bedrooms do not require any front dormer, only a small rear dormer. : The bath sits above the first-floor bath, thus'permitting all the plumbing in the home to be connected from one stack only. * * * PLANS CALL for either a one or two- car^ garage and either a slab home or a three-quarter basement, all of which are included in the working drawings available from the architect. In the basement option, the basement · door is located under the main stair and the bedroom closets are rearranged to provide guest closet at the entrance foyer.
