25 Jul Best architecture: Thoughtful Dutch duet-style home
“There was immense though put in every detail from the sneaky duet style to the variety of texture, making this house our pick for best architecture.
Style in 3 words: Innovative, creative and inspiring.
The house: This duet-style Dutch home is located in Providence Park. It’s 3,577 square feet with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
The creative architecture makes this duet-style home look like a single-family house from the street. And with spacious, free-flowing rooms, the interior lives like a lower maintenance single-family home, too.
Design: The use of different textures like wooden paneled ceilings, white textured walls, sleek pinched roof, and wooden garage doors are a couple characteristics that bring in a modern feel.
Best room: The open-concept, L-shaped floor plan is suited for an entertainer with a natural flow from the kitchen through the great room.
Outside, the covered terrace with fireplace is perfect for entertaining or relaxing on the deck that overlooks the large backyard.
Future expansion: Grandfather Homes and Mermans Architecture & Design created a unique option for buyers looking for the size of a single family home but with low maintenance similar to a condo or townhome.
The versatile use of this house expands with an additional 500-square-foot flex space above the detached two-car garage. That area can be converted into an office suite, work out room or guest apartment.”
