Gering's features make it admirable
If you have a hillside lot in mind and are looking for a unique split-level house plan, the well-designed Gering (334-110) should be to your liking. From the stately brick and siding exterior to the economical interior arrangement, the 2473 square foot Gering is indeed admirable.
This plan will work well for a family with older children. With the sleeping quarters on different levels, both parents and kids can maintain a certain amount of privacy.
The luxurious master suite is something to see. Features include: a coffered ceiling in the sleeping and bath areas, huge walk-in closet, separate vanity, linen storage and skylit bathroom with detached shower and relaxing spa tub.
Your guests can enter into the atrium and appreciate the various plant life on display in the built-in planter. As you reach the dining room/living room area, also with coffered ceilings, the fireplace spreads its warmth. Good food, good friends and good conversation belong here.
For the cook in the house, the skylit kitchen is placed between the dining room and the handy breakfast nook. Whether you want to serve formal dinners or more casual meals, this arrangement makes it easy. A nearby pantry has plenty of room to keep your dry goods. A half bath is conveniently tucked next to the kitchen. Access to the two-car garage lets you re-supply the larder without getting wet. There is a shop area, with a long built-in workbench, at the rear of the garage.
The lower level makes good use of available space. Two good-sized bedrooms, with a small utility room between them, occupy one side. Bedroom number two has a nice walk-in closet. An optional room sits on the other side of the lower floor. This room can be used as another bedroom, den or home office. Leave out the optional wall and it becomes part of the large family room. Lots of good times can be had here. Just put in a pool table, ping-pong table or a big screen television. There is also room for a wet bar.
