The Riverton is a contemporary ranch-style cottage designed to sit on land that slopes down at the rear. With minimal changes, this fairly compact plan could also be built on level ground.

About three-fourths of the floor space is on the ground level, including the owners’ suite. Vaulted ceilings in the great room, dining room and owners’ suite increase the overall sense of expansiveness throughout. An abundance of natural light washes into the linked gathering spaces, through windows that fill much of the rear wall. One of the twin atrium windows in the dining area opens onto an elevated, easily screenable deck.

Entering, you step into a skylit gallery foyer. Doors along the right open into the owners’ suite, a coat closet, and a small, conveniently located bathroom. Direct access to a deep two-car garage with a utility sink is on the left, near where the foyer feeds into the great room. Flames in the fireplace there can also be enjoyed from the kitchen, which boasts a roomy walk-in pantry.

A deep storage closet nestles under the stairway, right next to the den and a generously sized utility room with cabinets and a folding counter. The den can double as a guest room, or be outfitted as a home office or fourth bedroom. Its rectangular window bay could hold a cozy window seat.

His-and-hers closets and vanities flank the skylit passageway through the owners’ suite’s private bathroom. The toilet and a roomy walk-in shower hide behind a pocket door at the rear.

Two more bedrooms and a bathroom are upstairs in the Riverton. While both bedrooms are about the same size, the rear room is brighter and feels more spacious, due to its twin skylights and vaulted ceiling.

Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search our home plans. A review plan of the Riverton 30-811, including floor plans, elevations, section, and artist’s conception, can be purchased for $25.
