The "Level III" House Plan
The 1,011 square feet of living space seems to be on two levels, with the basement making up what they call this "Three Level Contemporary." Never mind. It's a beautiful example of mid-century modern split-level design.
Why is this a Ranch style?
- Low pitched, hipped roof
- Deep-set eaves with roof overhang
- Asymmetric facade
- Contrasting siding
- Large windows, modernized with glass block corners
- Prominent chimney, similar to the "Modette" design
- Patios with sliding glass doors
- Corner windows and split levels create a sense of openness
Marketing this House Plan:
The architecture of this hip-roofed split-level ranch is attractive inside and outside. The few steps up to the bedroom removes the children's bedroom from the large, comfortable living areas. The huge chimney demands attention from passersby. What's not to like?
