“Home Design: Luxury Homes” (excerpt below)
Although luxurious in size and finishes, this 5,000-square-foot home offers a number of practical design elements that result in a functional and cozy home. Designed to fit on a 75-foot-wide lot, the motor court provides ample parking without allowing the garage doors to detract from the overall appearance of the home. Once inside the home, the raised central foyer and gallery direct traffic to the study, formal dining room, living area, and kitchen. Expansive windows along the rear of the home allow for magnificent views and plenty of natural light. The spacious screened porch, complete with a fireplace and outdoor kitchen, becomes an ideal gathering space for friends and family.
