We recently went through schematic design steps for the south sylvan project. The site lays on a sloping property with the north end on the main road higher than the south end.
The form is designed with the entry area, master suite, and guest suite on the main level and the public spaces of the kitchen, dining, and living room a half level lower with great access to the south side and higher ceilings. There are also two bedrooms, a bath, and a den above the master suite on the east side. Below the master suite is a utility garage that has access from inside the house.
