The Cambridge is that rare exception to the rule a compact country style home. Typically, homes with gabled rooflines, dormer windows and a wrap around front porch are out of reach for first time homebuyers and far too large for empty nesters.

This plan is designed for economy and efficient maintenance, making it equally well suited to the needs of singles, families with young children, or couples who’ve graduated from parenthood to grandparenthood.

Placement of the front bedroom, adjacent to the front porch, makes it an ideal location for a home office. Relocating the closet would allow installation of a door for direct access from the porch.

Day to day living takes place in a bright, vaulted family room/kitchen combination that faces the rear. Naturally illuminated by skylights, side windows and a high dormer, this area rarely needs electrical lighting during daylight hours.

Sliding glass doors in the eating nook open onto a wide deck allowing meals to move outside when days are warm. Utilities are just a few steps away, tucked in the passageway to the garage.

Potted plants flourish on 8 foot-high recessed plant shelves that flank the vaulted entry hall, overarch the entrance to the family room, and mark the passageway to the master suite. Families with brown thumbs can use these shelves as display space.

Luxury amenities in the master suite include a large walk in closet and twin basins in a dressing area separate from the water closet and shower.

While the Cambridge lacks a formal dining room, it does have an impressive living room with a wide bay window. Built in bookcases flank a wide hearthed fireplace, providing display space for family mementos.

Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search home plans. A review plan of the Heartcrest 10-045 can be purchased for $25. Associated Design’s “Home Plan Collection,” featuring more than 550 home plans, costs $15. Both are available online, by phone at 800-634-0123 and by mail (add $5 s/h) at Associated Designs, 1100 Jacobs Drive, Eugene, OR 97402.
