Transcript "SPLIT LEVEL" CONTEMPORARY THE "COLEMAN SPLIT LEVEL TREND HOUSE" at 8710 Pritchett is the first split level home in a Houston subdivision and has been designed to complement its Southwestern surroundings and climate. The new contemporary was built by young Alan B. Huvard, who has constructed some of Houston's most outstanding contemporary homes. It was designed by William R. Jenkins of Jenkins and Floyd, Architects. The home takes its name from the Coleman air conditioning firm, which proposed a split level model and approved Jenkin's revised design. It has more than 1700 square feet of floor space but only 640 feet of slab on the ground. The floor plan includes a spacious living room, dining area, breakfast nook and kitchen, three bedrooms, 2^2 baths, a study, two-car garage and storage space, and an enclosed terrace. The exterior is of pink Mexican brick and redwood paneling stained gray white. Each side of the house has a covered walk and entrance. The main entry is ground level with several steps to the first floor living room, dining area, breakfast nook and kitchen. The entire first floor has exposed beam sloping ceilings. The terrace is enclosed by a four-foot redwood fence. A seven-foot wall separates the kitchen from the living and dining area. A Chambers oven is built into a brick wall in the kitchen and it also has a built-in Servel refrigerator, Apex diswasher and disposal. Steps from the living room raise to the bedroom wing which has a redwood paneled study overlooking the living and dining area. This balcony room has a retaining wall of three feet to permit view of the lower level. The lower level, several steps beneath the first floor, houses the two-car garage, storage space, and utility room, which is air conditioned. The home is furnished by Finger's in contemporary style. One of the advantages of split level planning is that there is no wasted space, Mr. Huvard said. He hopes through this parade home to create a demand in Houston for the split level home.
