When a reader told me about this one-story house built in Ross, California, I was intrigued by its H-shaped floor plan.
It’s on the market, so let’s take a look.
A House Designed by Wendy Posard
The Great Room reminds me of another one Wendy Posard designed:
I loved that room when it was featured in Traditional Home, so I thought it was interesting to see a more contemporary version in this one.
They both have vaulted, beamed ceilings and French doors, but they “feel” very different.

The listing says:
Capture this once in a blue moon opportunity to own a custom designed new construction home by renowned Bay Area architect and designer Wendy Posard. Dramatic design features a functional open floor plan, high-end appliances and finishes like Ann Sacks tile and wide plank oak floors make this home truly one of a kind.
The great room has 18-foot high, beamed cathedral ceilings.
The floor plan allows for lots of windows, as well as a courtyard accessible from most major rooms.
The Floor Plan for the H-Shaped House:
“The intentional layout of the house on the property maximizes privacy so you can relax in style with family and friends while being inspired by the creativity of an architect who has mastered her craft.”
French doors open to the courtyard between the wings: “Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own luxurious en-suite bathroom.”
I saw photos of the house before it was staged, and it was harder to get a feel for the spaces and what they’d be used for. Just adding some basic furniture in the rooms made a big difference.
