Vincent an attractive, efficient duplex

The Vincent (402-07) is a duplex arrangement that is attractive and efficient. Many people are taking advantage of the investment possibilities and other benefits offered by having a duplex to use both as a residence and a rental property. A number of up-to-date features make it desirable for renters as well as the owner-resident.

Each includes a one-car garage wide enough to accommodate a washer and dryer. Placement of the garages in front of the units allows them to serve an additional function—that of a sound buffer.

Ramps at the front and back entrances make both of these units wheelchair accessible. The lower floor plan creates an easy traffic flow by the placement of a central eating bar. This allows meals to be served casually here. Sliding glass doors at the far end brighten the space and allow access to a small patio where friends and family can gather for a barbecue, weather permitting.

More formal occasions dictate the use of the adjacent dining room.

A small bedroom tucked in the corner of the first floor, can be put to use as a den, sewing room, library, etc. A full bath completes the lower floor plan. The stairway to the second floor leads to the sleeping area. This house design is ideal for couples with small children. The landing is open to below, allowing Mom and Dad to keep an eye on the goings on. The modest master suite is situated at the front of the house, with the other two bedrooms close by. A full bath and extra storage space conclude the second floor.
