See-Through Fireplaces

Handsome gables and classic columns grace the exterior of this Visbeen Architects design. The home charms, beginning with the covered entrance flanked by stone-wrapped columns. Once inside, central living and dining areas reside on the left and the enormous, luxurious master suite and a guest suite to the right. A large deck off the living room looks out over the backyard and draws the outdoors in. The lower level features two additional bedrooms, a family room, an exercise area, and a large screened porch. Both levels are made cozy by two-sided, see-through fireplaces. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Ideal for a Sloping Lot

This Craftsman-influenced home by Visbeen Architects is a great choice for a sloping lot, with a finished basement that holds two of the three bedrooms and plenty of room for a family to relax. On the main level, an open layout allows easy movement between the living room, the open dining room, and the island kitchen, which offers seating for four. The master suite is easy to reach yet buffered from public view, and includes a large shower and dual sinks. A den offers space for working from home. Don't miss the spacious garage or the covered deck on the side. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Great for a Scenic Location

Rustic yet refined, this European-inspired Visbeen Associates design is all about details, from the boulder-like stones gracing the facade to the kitchen island that seats four. An open living plan combines the kitchen, dining, and central living areas on the first level. Two bedrooms rest upstairs, including a spacious master with a sitting area and private balcony. The lower level can hold two additional bedrooms and a fireplace-warmed family room perfect for enjoying time together. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
