A full porch spans the entire front facade of the country-style Ambrosia, which has homestead symmetry accented by a chimney. Window shutters, gables, and wooden handrails all add to this home’s comfortably traditional welcoming look. Slender posts frame the entry, while king posts and struts dramatize the vaulted entry porch.

The foyer ceiling soars to a lofty two stories. Around the stairway to the right is a hallway that feeds into the family room and kitchen.

On the foyer’s left, a wide opening leads into a large, bright living room. That room transitions into the dining room behind it, which links with the kitchen. Families that enjoy entertaining will appreciate the spaciousness and ease of movement between these four large gathering spaces: family room, kitchen, dining room and living room.

A sunny window bay expands the family room. Across the room, a woodstove stands ready to provide welcoming warmth on chilly days and nights.

Counters and cupboards span two walls of a kitchen with a large cook-top work island and a roomy walk-in pantry. A gently rounded conversation bar fronts the work island on the family room side. Double doors on the right open into a large vaulted play room, and the single door next to it leads to a partially covered patio out back. This could easily be screened, if desired.

A guest room is also on this level, as are two bathrooms and a utility room. Three more bedrooms, including the Ambrosia’s deluxe owners’ suite, are upstairs. Amenities include a fireplace and a private bathroom with dual vanity, spa tub and large shower. Bonus and storage rooms are over the garage and shop below.

For a review plan, including scaled floor plans, elevations, section and artist’s conception send $25 to Associated Designs, 1100 Jacobs Drive, Eugene, OR 97402. Specify the Ambrosia 30-752 and include a return address when ordering. A catalog featuring more than 550 home plans is available for $15.
