**«ii SPECIAL Kear of House Receives Extra Designer Emphasis By AMty Lug Thtf AfHHtatr Good looks are built into the facade of this house, what with its mixture of stone and brick, attractive bay window and U-shaped hip roof with 3-foot overhangs, creating an illusion of weightlessness that has been used in residential . design ever since Frank Lloyd ·Wright adopted this feature ·"^from Oriental architecture. '·· Actually, though, it's the ;'. rear of the house that has been '·; given special treatment by ar- r- chitect Lester Cohen. A polygonal extension at the back of the ranch is the key to an unusual family area that pivots around a massive fireplace, open to a wrap-around terrace that offers outdoor living ojptions and a feeling of expansiveness. » · * THE KITCHEN is contained in one side with no skimping of work or storage space. At the center is the brick chimney wall and fireplace, rising to the added height of the cathedral ceiling, with handsome wood oeams raoiaing to the edges of the area. Two sets of sliding glass doors open to the rambling terrace, and the extensive use of glass on the three projecting sides of the extension admits light into tiie entire space. Traffic into the house is well routed by the center hall, which has immediate access to living room, kitchen, family room, bedroom hallway and basement stairs. The living anH dining rooms are phcecl »i an angle, connected bv a wide arch, and laid out so the two areas are spared through traffic. The living room is graced by a handsome bow window. The dining room is handy to the kitchen on one side and open to a dining patio through sliding glass doors on the other side. The dining room can be used as a formal dining- room or treated as a more intimate living area within the living room scheme, since there is dining spare included in the family area. "* * * THE BEDROOM wing has three bedrooms and two baths, all buffered by hallways and closets. Storage space is good in all three rooms, and with the coat, linen and game storage closets, as well as bulky storage be- 70 hind the garage and additional storage in the basement, there's room for everything. The master bedroom, set toward the back for privacy, has a door leading to the terrace, as well as its own bathroom with stall shower. By following the architect's suggestions, the full basement under the house can be developed into storage, utility and recreation areas. There is a large teenage room with a separate game area. A hobby room is set off so it can be locked easily to proect unfinished projects. A lavatory is placed next to a sauna room wih separate shower, and next to it, keeping all plumbing in a central core, the laundry room with a handy closet. R- 70 Statistics Design K-70 has a living room, dining room, kitchen- dinette, family room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a center hall, totaling 1597 square feet. There is a two car garage, behind which are two storage areas and a dining patio. A floor plan is shown for the basement if it is desired to finish that level. The over-all dimensions of 72V by 43'7" include the dining patio and most of the wrap-around rear terrace.
