The Sun Stream 2 is a modern, yet rustic, A-frame house plan full of charm with a stone chimney, tall windows, and spacious deck. This versatile home will work in nearly any setting from a quiet cabin in the woods to a beach-front neighborhood and is equipped to be a year-round residence but could be a nice vacation house as well.
The front door is tucked around the side of the house and up a small staircase. The front door opens into a mudroom-style, enclosed foyer and then into a hallway. From the hallway, one can go straight into the living area or to the staircase. The living area is open and grand, with two-story ceilings and windows that light up the room. There is little designation of space so the layout is not pre-set. The furniture can be arranged in a way that is most convenient and pleasing to the homeowner. The centerpiece of the living area is the fireplace that makes a warm, cozy area to gather around.
The kitchen is to the side of the living space. It has long counters, ample cabinets, and a built-in wall pantry. There is plenty of room for a long dining table or one could add a mobile kitchen island if more workspace is needed. A sliding glass door opens from the kitchen into a screened porch, great for enjoying outdoor meals or relaxing without any unwanted guests. From the screened porch, you can exit onto the large deck.
At the back of the living room is a set of double doors that lead into the master bedroom. The master has a private entrance into the main floor bathroom that has a romantic two-person spa tub.
Up the stairs, you will find a bright loft that opens up to the living room below. This area can be used as an additional bedroom or guest room if needed. It would also make an excellent reading room or art studio.
All the way down the stairs is the daylight basement. This space has two additional bedrooms, a full bath with laundry, storage, and a family room. The family room has a cozy wood fireplace and could double as a game room. A sliding glass door opens out to a covered patio.
