The Northshire is a spacious prairie-style home designed for construction on land that slopes up at the rear. The home is actually cut into a hillside. Its driveway climbs to the garage, near the entrance on the upper level. Family members can enter through the garage.

Two-story stone veneer columns highlight the covered front porch and deck that span most of the front facade. Guests step onto the porch from the left side, then turn left to enter the foyer. Light spills into the foyer through sidelights, a transom, and glass in the upper half of the door. An opening on the foyer’s left leads to a small bathroom, a large utility room, and the three-car garage.

Gathering spaces are to the right, just past the descending stairs. A fireplace angles across one front corner of the great room, next to a home entertainment center that fills an entire wall. Glass doors there open onto the front deck.

The great room is completely open to an even larger room that comprises the dining room and kitchen. A generously sized work island expands the gallery kitchen on the left. Standing at the kitchen sink, you face into the dining area across a flush, gently curved eating bar. Natural light washes in through sliding glass doors at the rear, plus windows in the cozy octagonal nook.

An extra-roomy walk-in closet anchors the right wing, where the owners’ suite and a den/office link up via a spacious bathroom. The den/office features a convenient computer nook with a built-in desk.

Two bedrooms share a two-section bathroom on the Northshire’s lower level. A large recreation room with a wet bar is also below, along with a second utility room and plenty of storage space.

Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search home plans. A review plan of the Northshire 30-808 can be purchased for $25. Associated Design’s “Home Plan Collection,” featuring more that 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.
