Weber Design Group Completes House Plan For Two-Story Home on Coach House Lane in Naples

March 10, 2011

Naples Architect – Weber Design Group, Inc. President Bill Weber announced the firm has completed construction documents for a two-story home on Coach House Lane in Naples, Florida. The 3,681 square feet under air Craftsman style great room plan includes four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a study, three car garage and a large country style island kitchen and dining area that spills into a covered lania that features a fireplace, coffered ceiling and outdoor kitchen. The fireplace is oriented to provide a view from the covered space to a kidney shaped-pool.

“The Craftsman architectural style is prevelant in the Carolinas and features columns on the front of the home and bracket details,” said Weber Design Group’s lead Designer Travis Hite. “It is a style that is very unique in Southwest Florida. The appeal of the Craftsman style is found in its simplicity, clean lines and cost effectiveness. The front elevation that we’ve designed includes both a single and a double garage door entry and a main entry system that includes a large front porch that will accommodate furniture, a feature that is very consistent with the Craftsman style. The exterior of the home will be finished with horizontal Hardiplank siding and all of the windows on the front of the home will have wood slat shutters. Stone will be wrapped around the base of the structure and a shingled roof will complete the Craftsman look.”

“This plan includes a very large great room with a ceiling that starts at 11′ 4″ and then pops up first to 12′ and then 12′ 8″ in the center to accommodate a diamond shaped coffered treatment,” added Weber. “The volume gives contour and character to the ceiling. A 20 foot span of sliding glass doors that are eight feet tall is set across the rear of the living area and provides a great deal of natural light as well as access to a generously proportioned and beautifully detailed outdoor living and pool area. This will be a very comfortable home that will provide the owner with an opportunity to enjoy the indoor/outdoor lifestyle that is Naples’ hallmark. The lady of the house is a hair stylist so we have also incorporated a large utility room that includes hair washing and dressing areas as well as space for a washer, dryer and storage.”

The floor plan’s nicely proportioned foyer is open to the second floor. A study just off the foyer features a double French door entry and a rectangular coffered ceiling. Off of the kitchen is a large play room that has a nook for a TV and Play Station. A walk-in pantry and walk-in closet are also just off the kitchen. A locker storage area for dropping off keys, shoes, mail and other items has been included just inside the garage entry.

The home’s master suite opens to a covered outdoor space adjacent to the pool. The master bedroom has an attractive vestibule entry, a rectangular coffered ceiling and two large walk-in closets. The master bath features his and her vanities, including a sit down make-up desk, a large garden tub, walk-in shower and a coffered ceiling centered for a chandelier.

The upstairs is a very efficient space with an overhead view to the foyer and three bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms share a bath set-up in a Jack and Jill fashion with two vanities and a pocket door that shuts off the water closet and shower while the third bedroom has its own bath. Each of these bedrooms has a coffered ceiling. The upstairs also accommodates the home’s mechanical area as well as a large attic storage area that could be converted into a game room.

“This plan is perfectly proportioned for the client’s family while providing a great deal of privacy through the separation of the downstairs master suite and the three bedrooms upstairs,” said Hite. “It is an ideal plan for an active family with children still living at home full time as well as college age children who make frequent visits. The large playroom and outdoor living and pool area will serve as perfect complements to the open and flowing nature of the great room design.”
