Mountain View has a hexagonal heart

It’s not necessary to build the Mountain View within viewing distance of a mountain, but that certainly would make a great location. Vistas from the rear could just as well take in the ocean, a lake, a canyon, or even a beautiful yard. Basically, overlooking any landscape you’d enjoy.

From the front, it appears to be an average country or ranch-style home, so you may be surprised when you step inside. Handy coat closets flank the entry, which then opens out into the spacious hexagonal great room at the heart of this plan. Light washes in through windows that fill most of the three rear walls.

Doors on the far side of the great room access a screened porch. A masonry fireplace serves as a focal point in the living area to the left, while the dining area segues into the kitchen on the right. The raised eating bar fronts a long work island that sets the kitchen a little apart.

Utilities and a luxurious owners’ suite fill the wing that extends off to the left. A convenient toilet and basin nestle into an alcove in the laundry room, which also has cabinets and a long folding counter with a built-in utility sink. The owners’ suite has a deep walk-in closet, and a sitting area with a view to the rear. Plus, it has a rectangular window bay. This bright window could be built as a window seat, or left open to create a sewing, art or display nook.

A pantry and storage closet line the passageway to the secondary bedrooms and bathroom that fill the right wing. If the home is built over a basement, stairs will descend between the bathroom and the Mountain View’s two-car garage.
