If you enjoy design elements from both traditional and modern homes, you may appreciate a house plan that blends the popular features of each into one cohesive design. That is exactly what you get with Urban Farmhouse design, it’s a modern twist on a traditional home. These designs perfectly blend classic elements with modern amenities, providing you with a unique look that will fit your personal style.
If you’re considering building a home on a narrow lot, you will need to know how to make the most out of the space. With the right narrow lot home designs, you’ll find that narrow lots have quite a number of benefits. Here are some ways that you can use your narrow space and your home plan to your advantage.
We are working on a collection of Urban Farmhouse designs to meet the growing trend!
The Coleraine 1335 (Modified with an Urban Farmhouse exterior)
An Urban Farmhouse is a modern interpretation of classic Farmhouse features. Characteristics of an Urban Farmhouse include, board-and-batten siding, metal roof accents, neutral colors and an open and modern floor plan. Unlike a traditional Farmhouse, an Urban Farmhouse will likely be constructed on smaller or narrower lot. For this reason, our collection offers designs that will work well in Urban or Suburban neighborhoods.
Showcased below is a Design in Progress and a few conceptual designs that are on the drawing board. Later we will show you how you can add Urban Farmhouse features to existing plans in our portfolio.
In terms of boosting curb appeal, creating a strong first impression, and increasing overall property value, you can’t beat a portico entry.
The Carrera #1178
A front door portico is the kind of feature that makes for a stunning entrance, while also setting the stage for beauty to continue inside. It also offers some shelter for you or guests when you’re stepping inside from the rain or snow. Once added to a home, a portico can incorporate benches, plants, mats and more, all showcasing your personal style.
Building on a Narrow Lot? Here are the best house plans to choose from!
The Sassafras #814
In areas where property values are exceptionally high, narrow lots are appealing because they are more affordable. At Donald A. Gardner Architects, we have been hearing from our customers that demand for narrow lot house plans is on the rise, as more and more people want to live in urban areas where land is at a premium. Yet, builders still want to be able to present their customers with home plans that have spacious interiors and curb appeal. This means, a specific type of house plan that accommodates demand for quality within minimal space is necessary.
