Looking for a something unique for an infill lot? These narrow designs go above and beyond – literally – with unusual amenities, great outdoor spaces, and terrific views.

Terrific Detached Guest Suite


Rows of arched windows on this marvelous Mediterranean from the Energy Saver Plus Home Plans Collection flood the interior with light. A small courtyard inside the first entryway hints at outdoor spaces to come. The whole home revolves around an expansive central courtyard, accessed by the first-floor master suite (an oasis with walk-in closets and a separate tub and shower), the open kitchen area, and a detached guest suite. Two bedrooms and a study upstairs enjoy large, covered balconies. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Billiards Room, Wet Bar, and More


This 3,748-square-foot home fits into a 37' wide footprint. Nothing was left out in this efficient plan that features three bedrooms, a study, a billiards room, and a fireplace-warmed "four season room". An open deck off of the back is great for star gazing on clear nights. Gorgeous ceiling treatments add to the sense of luxury. In the kitchen, a snack-bar is open to the family room and dining nook. Highlights of the second level include the deck, the billiards room (complete with a wet bar), and the deluxe master suite. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Three Unique Levels


With three levels of outdoor living to showcase a view, this beautiful home is designed for a hillside lot. The entry at the side of the home introduces a foyer, library, and spectacular master bedroom suite with deluxe amenities and a private patio. Head down to the lower level for the rec room, wet bar, and a guest bedroom, or up to main living spaces on the top floor. A two-way fireplace warms both the great room and dining room, each with a unique shape. An elevator is located to the rear for ease of movement between floors. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Modern Seaside Treasure


Just 20 feet wide, this remarkable home from Visbeen Architects (winner of awards at the 2011 and 2012 American Residential Design Awards) takes full advantage of expansive views. The entry level functions as the main living space, featuring a half bath, foyer, kitchen, dining room, and glass-walled living room. One floor down is the laundry, bunk room, and sunny master suite. The lowest level is home to another bedroom suite and office space, separated by the patio from a rec room and kitchenette. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
