Sleek sophistication blends with unpredictable elements in a countryside contemporary

In a home filled with architectural and interior surprises and delights this great room is no exception. The wall seen behind the homeowners is hand-finished in a Venetian plaster technique and tilts into the room at a 12-degree angle.

A porcelain tile floor in the sleek kitchen allows one's eye to slide to the full wall of windows that overlook a ravine on the wooded lot.

The master bathroom's bath tub appears to be a gem floating in the center of the space. Southern light is brought into the north-facing window via a light well that bounces warmth directly into the tub.

The sunroom design boasts a fun octagonal shape and is a favorite spot for the homeowners, who enjoy wildlife that populates the ravine running parallel to the pool.

These house plans include a striking entryway that is the focal point of the home. A conical stone "tower" reminiscent of iron ore blast furnaces that were once commonplace in southern Ohio welcomes guests to this contemporary getaway.

This home really comes alive during a snowfall with the snow glistening and calling attention to the spectacular contemporary house plans.
