South­west­ern Lan­tana stately yet friendly

Ottawa Sun - New Homes - - HOMES -

Cor­ner quoins ac­cent wide stucco col­umns that sup­port the Lan­tana’s dra­matic por­tico. In fact, all its front-fac­ing ex­te­rior cor­ners are quoined. Raised planters and a pa­rade of win­dows soften the lines, cre­at­ing a front fa­cade that is at once friendly and im­pres­sive.

This plan’s in­te­rior re­flects the same mix. The stately am­biance per­me­at­ing the liv­ing room, foyer, and din­ing room tran­si­tions into a free-flow­ing, re­laxed feel­ing when you en­ter the kitchen, nook or fam­ily room.

A 12-foot ceil­ing adds vol­ume to the spa­cious foyer, while 10-foot ceil­ings grace for­mal gath­er­ing spa­ces on ei­ther side. Clas­sic ceil­ing treat­ments en­hance the im­pact of these rooms. The din­ing room has a cof­fered ceil­ing; the liv­ing room’s tray ceil­ing echoes the room’s elon­gated oc­tag­o­nal shape.

Mul­ti­paned win­dows, wide and plen­ti­ful, brighten the large, com­fort­able liv­ing area at the rear. From the kitchen sink, you can en­joy the view across a pa­tio, ac­cessed through a French door in the nook.

Range and oven are built into a penin­su­lar counter that could be out­fit­ted as an eat­ing or con­ver­sa­tion bar. While cook­ing, you can keep tabs on hap­pen­ings in the nook and fam­ily room, or en­joy the flames in the fire­place. A walk-in pantry adds stor­age space.

The Lan­tana’s own­ers’ suite has two clos­ets, a pri­vate bath­room, and a bay win­dow - just the spot for a win­dow seat or sewing nook. Own­ers’ bath lux­u­ries in­clude a soak­ing tub, dual van­ity, and shower. The ad­ja­cent room could be a home of­fice, nurs­ery or bed­room.

Util­i­ties and two more bed­rooms are lo­cated on the far side of the house, con­nected to the three-car garage.
