Williamson Heats and Cooli America's Homes By Andy Lang The Atsorialeti Press Statistics show that the three-bedroom ranch continues to meet the demands of the. average family, although the square footage of the habitable area has decreased as construction costs have gone up-Another popular feature that seems to fit today's lifestyle is the division of the available space into formal and informal sections, often combining the family room and kitchen and the livingroom and dining room. Design R-175 has both these attributes. But when an overnight guest or a relative comes to visit, even the three-bedroom ranch can be caught short. - To circumvent the problem of musical beds and the loss of privacy, architect Lester Cohen has included a spare room, complete with its own bath, utilizing space behind the two-car garage. entire area. Its placement allows'for a second fireplace for use in the family room, using the same chimney. The family room and kitchen make an L-shape. with the length of the space opening to the patio and rear yard through sliding glass doors from the family room. * + * THE KITCHEN is most efficiently located for easy service to the dining and family rooms. Two parallel banks of counters, appliances and cabinets offer excellent facilities for meal preparations, and a wraparound extension of one of the counters provides a snack bar which also gives extra working space for other household chores. There is dinette space toward the back of the kitchen work area, with a windowed bay for good light, air and cheery atmosphere. A pocket door from the kitchen leads to a mud room area behind the garage, where laundry equipment is located. From here, there is access to the garage, backyard, and the spare room and bath previously mentioned. * + * THERE ARE three bedrooms lined along the right wing of the house The family bath has a twin-sink vanity and a lined closet just outside the door, where it can also be used for bedroom linen storage. The master bedroom is at the back. Three of its walls are outside walls, and the fourth is buffered by baths and closets, so it is private and quiet. Sliding glass doors open from the master bedroom to the patio. There are twin double closets behind bifolding doors, as well as a private bath with stall shower. ·MASTER CHARGE ·BANXAMERICARD DARNOLO INC. SfSTMMVE. N. 744-1329 I %#XK*»M^^ THE EXTERIOR styling sports the familiar long, low lines of the ranch plan, with the textures of fieldstone and boards and battens providing visual interest. Further interest is brought by the varied use of windows, combining multipaned sash windows trimmed with shutters for the flanking wings, as well as a triple picture window and a four-part diamond- paried casement grouping in the porch sec- lion; ' Entry to the house is through the covered porch, into a vestibule placed at the right end of the porch. There is a coat closet behind bi-folding doors, and direct access to the bedrooms, living and family rooms. The living and dining areas are combined along the front, with large spans of windows sheltered from the street by the front porch.
