8D --June 2. 1974 Sunday Gazette-Mall Charleston, West Virginia Tudor Has Style, Grace By Andy Lanp The Associated Press A large f a m i l y t h a t likes things done in the grand manner will find plenty to admire in this latest House of the Week. Outside, old world architecture is evident. The exterior is Tudor, with broken roof lines. stucco, brick and rough sawn boards used 10 define well- proportioned shapes. . Inside. Design R-66 is elegance personified, with its four bedrooms, unusual "Tower Room," huge entrance foyer, fireplaced living sides, ideally situated family room and balcony dinette at one end of the modern kitchen. ARCHITECTS Herman H. York and Raymond Schenke have given the entrance foyer, designated on the floor plan as the "Grand Hall," an opulence that reflects the tone of the entire house. Octagon-shaped, it has spaciousness and grandeur, with a statuary niche for the display of a piece of art. Nearby is the powder room MICONV- SUOND flOOli PUN and walk-in coat closet, with its own vestiblue, all designed to insure private use, out of view of o t h e r i m m e d i a t e areas. The living room's fireplace is on a direct sight line from the foyer. The wall space is designed for unlimited furniture placement. There are no traffic lanes across this room, and because it is two steps above the foyer, it will provide conversation areas unusual to such an arrangement. * * * THE DINING, room with its splayed sides will, if properly furnished, give the impression of a banquet hall. A huge, small-paned window at the rear overlooks the garden. The kitchen is of the island type, with all of the appliances needed for today's living. A balcony overlooks the family room and, because the fireplace is placed in the family room at a point directly on view from the dinette, the atmosphere is changed from that of kitchen to one of inviting warmth. A large pantry closet will store all of the family's grocery needs. Nearby is a large laundry, with a sink, clothes washer and dryer, and enough floor space to allow for an ironing board, sewing machine or for other homemaking activity. There's even a storage closet there. * * * ON THE UPPER floor are the four bedrooms.

CITY STATE ers' bedroom, with four closets, is shown with sliding glass doors to a private balcony. The dressing room leads to a bath with separate tub and shower stall. Because there are three other bedrooms on this floor, the bathroom for their use has been made large enough, in a split arrangement, to provide twin lavatories and separate tub and shower stall, thus providing multiple use. * * * T H E C O N V E R S A T I O N piece of this design will be the "Tower Room," for here in a raised floor arrangement is an area H'8"xl4'0" in the shape of a Tudor tower, with all of the decorating possibilities any owner might wish to use. Small-paned windows look out over the front yard. The room can be called a multipurpose area for it certainly can be used as a den, TV room, guest room or fifth bedroom. Because of its location it can also be walled off from the hall and become a part of the owners' bedroom suite.
