Split level has always been my favorite, now I know another reason why: it is more efficient of space for stair landings to be eliminated, and become part of the levels themselves.

Great plan! The ground floor is really generous and the double access to the garden is a smart idea. The private areas are really pretty well isolated, so I really can not get all those privacy - related issues. Do these people mean that the kitchen, the dining room, the study and the living room should all be separate rooms with closed doors?! Well, welcome to the 21 C...less kids, working parents, more open space-:)
