The Cortes timber house plan exudes tremendous character; from the flared log posts and purlins to the large, unique window configurations accessing a spacious 270-degree view. Designed without a ridgepole to allow for a full-length ridge sky light over the great room and loft, natural light to pours in, creating a beautiful natural ambiance. The gigantic glass wall in the great room is designed with industrial hardware eliminating the need for window trim and allowing floor to ceiling glass. This creates an uninterrupted picture perfect view of the ocean and mountains, while allowing a profound sense of the outdoors to flow inside.
This home is perfect for entertaining family and friends of all generations. The openness of the communal areas allows you to entertain and socialize, while still being a part of the action no matter where you are. The dramatic great room contains a massive three way wood burning fireplace and sitting area. Situated above is the huge loft with multiple sitting areas and two gas fireplaces. Contained above the loft is a 9′ x 7′ lookout tower with extraordinary 270-degree panoramic views perfect for an inspirational start or tranquil end to your day.
The chef’s kitchen provides plenty of counter and prep space along with a huge, 8’x4½’ single slab granite island/eating bar. Complimenting the expansive kitchen is a bistro-sized dining room able to accommodate multiple tables while still having room left over to indulge in the serene views. Look up and out the vast North Eastern window configuration and enjoy the gorgeous landscape.
The Cortes also boasts two large master suites each containing a large walk-in closet, generous ensuite and sitting areas perfect for curling up and treating yourself to a good book while enjoying the views.
This unique Post & Beam timber frame house design integrates timber floor joists, timber rafters, timber stairs complete with open treads and a timber truss.
