Roomy, stylish Tamarisk designed for large parcel Slender brick columns support a dramatic gabled porch that adds to the visual appeal of the Tamarisk (333-190), a large contemporary-country home designed for construction on a good-sized parcel of land. Almost all the rooms in this plan are large. Vaulted ceilings in the entry, guest suite, living room, office, and family kitchen add to the sense of spaciousness. One of the home’s

Home Design most interesting features is the family theater, designed to maximize the pleasures of surround sound. Built-in shelves and cabinets provide housing for a bigscreen television, electronic stereo equipment, albums, disks, videotapes, and the like. These shelves are accessible from the rear, through the util-

ity room. A sunny skylit family kitchen is at the heart of the home. Its brick or tile hearth spans the entire left wall. The wood box has an exterior door and supplies the fireplace in the office as well. Conveniences in the kitchen include a freezer, a pantry, a garden window, an appliance center, and

an island with a vegetable sink. The sumptuous master suite is far more than a bedroom. A bayed sitting area expands the rear wall while skylights brighten the portion of the room furthest from the windows. Another skylight, along with a small window, illuminates the deep walk-in closet. Luxuries in the private bathroom include a spa, an oversized shower, and

separately enclosed second vanity. Sliding glass doors open onto a wide deck, and pocket doors offer direct access to the skylit office. Storage and linen closets make efficient use of space in the hallway.

The Tamarisk (333-190) is the Landmark Designs Inc. plan of the week. Up to 15 percent off construction plans is offered. Call 800-5621151 or visit for details.
