This Visbeen Architects home won first place at the 2012 American Residential Design Awards in the Conceptual Design category. Deep covered decks and a screened-in porch allow for easy transitions between indoor and outdoor living. The open main-level floor plan centers on common living spaces, while still leaving room for a luxurious master bedroom. The upstairs loft offers two individual suites with private bathrooms, making ample space for guests and visitors. A detached garage with a bedroom suite above offers even more space for storage, hobbies, and guests. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
