Among its other desirable qualities is the privacy afforded by having the bedrooms on the second floor. It is important, these days, however, that a two-story house have a modern look. Care must be taken to avoid a too-vertical appearance. And there must also be the center- hall arrangement which has caught the fancy of the public because it permits good traffic circulation. In the latest House of the Week, architect Herman H. York has given us just such a home, with heavy emphasis on the kitchen and family room area at the rear. Incorporated in the plan, too, is a raised living room, two steps above the main floor level. Layout Thoughtful Since a four-bedroom house needs ample living, dining and washing facilities to handle a large family, care has been taken in planning the room layout to balance room areas with proper relationship to their uses. The family room-kitchen complex, totaling 36' in length, is conveniently located in relation to the rear dining and lounging terrace. It also is positioned to avoid a direct view from the more formal living and dining areas at the front of the house. Resilient flooring is recommended for the kitchen and the fireplaced family room, carpeting for the living and dining rooms. Design H-89 is no exception to the trend toward generous foyers for that all-im- The often-critlclzed upright appearance of some two-story homes has been bypassed in this pleasant, four-bedroom house by the creation of horizontal lines, achieved by roof overhangs and other design features. portant first impression. The double front dooh located in a covered entry, adds a touch of luxury in a dignified manner. The open balustrade stair railing adds to the spacious look of the entrance hall and to the raised living room. In selecting bluestone, ceramic tile or paving tile for the Let us help you BUY or BUILD A better house foyer floor, care must be taken to select a pattern in proper scale with the stair railing design. The balance of the first floor includes all essential elements. The wash-up lavatory and toilet are near the kitchen and the garage. The laundry is handy to the service area. A mud closet, broom closet and pantry round out a complete living unit. Note the two ways of getting to the terrace from the house —one from the family room, one from the laundry room. This makes it possible for guests to be routed to the terrace without going through the main section of the kitchen. The work area of the kitchen is not visible from the foyer. Instead, the scene is that of the dinette table and a large window. On the upper level are the four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The hall bath features twin lavatories, a convenience for handling the morning school hour rush. The main bedroom has a private bathroom and a walk-in closet of almost 50 square feet. Three of the four bedrooms have cross ventilation, with the fourth having a large double window at the front of the house. Architect York uses wide overhangs of roof and a cantilevered second floor to create deep shadows on the outside. He suggests the use of one color, plus white, to keep the exterior simple and unrestrained. Horizontal lines are achieved with the use of a cornice over the front entrance and adjacent living room. The wide gable end overhangs contribute to this appearance. Contained in the over-all dimensions of 55' by 27'8" of this hoUse are 1076 square feet of living area on the first floor, 940 square feet on the second floor.

VALUABLE NEWCOMERS When a new family moves lo town, the business community can expect to receive in expanded business almost four times what the family pays for its house.
