The two wings stretching out from the Heartcrest’s hexagonal core appear to extend a welcoming embrace to family and friends. They wrap around a recessed entry courtyard that focuses attention on the vaulted porch entry.

Handsome stone veneer bases link the nostalgic handrails and underlie the wooden porch supports. Stone veneer wainscoting rims the entire exterior perimeter, while rustic cedar shakes cover the upper sections and painted shutters highlight the windows.

The back side, with its wide deck spanning the entire rear, is equally attractive. Its vaulted, covered deck is a dramatic eye catcher.

Inside, another lofty, vaulted ceiling expands the sense of spaciousness in the window-bright entry and rear half of the great room. Coat closets flank the front door, and more light washes down through the overhead dormer.

Standing there you have four choices of direction. The master suite and den/office are down the hallway to the far left. Living room access is near left and the kitchen is near right. Secondary bedrooms, a bathroom, utilities, basement stairs and garage access are down the far right hallway.

The kitchen ceiling is flat. This space is almost totally open to the great room. A long, raised eating bar bounds one edge, creating an inviting locale for snacking, chatting, and homework supervision. Cupboard and counter space is plentiful, boosted by a central work island and a roomy pantry.

Windows fill most of three walls in the vaulted great room. Four atrium doors offer access to the vaulted, covered deck at center back, and more light spills in through tall windows on both sides of the fireplace.

The Heartcrest’s owners’ suite boasts a spacious sitting area, large walk-in closet, and luxurious, skylit bathroom.

Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search home plans. A review plan of the Heartcrest 10-526 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.
