EUGENE, ORE. – You can see the Craftsman influence on the exterior of the Artondale, from the use of shingles in the gables to the stone base columns, this two story duplex plan is a feast for the eyes. The separation of the units is visible even from the street, only the wall of the two-car garages is shared.
Each unit of the Artondale is identical so only one will be described.
Slender posts with wide stone bases frame the front door. The covered porch is cozy yet welcoming. Inside, the entrance offers a cloakroom just inside the front door and opens to the living room or the stairs to the second floor.
The ground floor is occupied by the great hall. The living room, dining room and kitchen are completely open, allowing people and conversations to flow between the three spaces. A dining bar extends from the kitchen providing some visual separation while adding to the available seating. A sliding glass door from the kitchen opens onto the covered rear patio. The hallway that extends from the great room leads past a storage closet to a half bath, laundry room and access to the attached two car garage.
The two-story floor plan includes the three bedrooms on the second floor, providing a nice separation between the living areas and the sleeping area. The staircase separates the owners’ suite from the two secondary bedrooms. The owners suite is well appointed and decorated with a vaulted ceiling. A pocket door slides to reveal the walk-in closet and at the back of the suite is the private bathroom.
Each unit is comfortably appointed with just under 1,500 square feet of living space, so it’s easy to see why the Artondale is a great duplex design.
