Split-level Vancouver is also a duplex

By
From page HS9 | April 19, 2013 |

The Vancouver is an unusual Craftsman-style split-level duplex designed for construction on land with a slight upslope to the rear. Despite an extra overarching front gable on the right unit, the two interiors are mirror images of each other, so one description will suffice.

Slender columns highlight the gabled entry porch and its characteristic Craftsman door. The shingle siding that accents the gable peaks runs an eye-catching counterpoint to the lap siding that covers most of the exterior.

Those entering from the street-level garage, take a half-flight of stairs that lead up to the vaulted gathering spaces at the home’s heart. Guests entering from the front climb a similar half-flight of stairs to reach a covered porch and entry that also feed into the vaulted living and dining areas. Secondary bedrooms and a full bathroom are another half-flight up, over the garage.

A handy mini-bathroom is just inside the front door, to the left of a coat closet. Light washes into the vaulted gathering space through Craftsman-style windows at the front and the sliding glass doors at the rear that open onto a patio. The ceiling slopes up to its lofty central apex from the front, then down toward the rear.
From the G-shaped kitchen you can face into the dining area across a raised eating bar. Kitchen counters wrap around four sides, while cabinets line three of them. An opening on the opposite side of the vaulted space leads into a utility alcove on the left and the vaulted owners’ suite on the right. Amenities here include a walk-in closet, dual vanity, linen closet, and shower.

The Vancouver could also be built on flat land, by sinking the garage below street level, and sloping the driveway down half a level.
