Stepped gables, stucco detailing and half-round windows give the small, one-and-a-half-story Siena’s exterior an intriguing appearance.
Raised stucco rims the windows, accentuates the eaves, and frames the arched garage doors. Stepped stucco detailing also draws attention to the front porch column, and similarly dresses up the garage door frames.

Inside, the layout has features not often found in a home this size. Vaulted ceilings, for example, expand the sense of spaciousness in more than half of the living areas. From the second floor loft, you can overlook both the dining room and the family room.

A G-shaped kitchen with a long eating bar sits at the juncture of the dining room and family room. Perched on a stool at the bar, you can interact with people in all three rooms. Natural light spills down from skylights in the family room, naturally illuminating the area.

Counter and storage space is generously supplied in the kitchen. Two or more cooks will find plenty of space here to ply their culinary talents in mutual efforts. Standing at the kitchen sink, you can gaze across the partially covered patio and beyond.

Laundry appliances are nearby, in a pass-through utility room equipped with a folding counter and deep sink. Connected to the garage, this room also serves as a mudroom, and offers a dry, safe and direct route for unloading groceries and supplies from cars parked in the garage.

The Siena’s owners’ suite is surprisingly luxurious for a small home. Amenities include: a huge walk-in closet, spa tub, dual vanity and separately enclosed shower and water closet.

Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search our home plans. A review plan of the Siena 30-186, including floor plans, elevations, section, and artist’s conception, can be purchased for $25. Our home plan catalog, featuring more than 550 home plans, costs $15. Both are available online, by mail or phone. Add $5 s/h.
