Conceptual Design #1372: Convenient Craftsman Ranch

3 beds, 3.5 baths, approx. 3200 sq. ft.
Approx. 88’4″ x 98’6″

Conceptual Design #1372 is a spacious three bedroom plan with all the conveniences of a larger home. Its Craftsman exterior is overflowing with details, including stone, arches, gable brackets, and cupolas, and the angled courtyard garage features a personnel door and 3rd bay to make room for a third vehicle.

A large study at the entrance to the plan has a vaulted ceiling to allow for a massive window that brightens the space. The 20×20 great room provides a comfortable entertaining area with a fireplace, built-ins, and patio access, topped with a coffered ceiling. A single dining space enjoys rear views and features a furniture niche, and the open kitchen ties the living spaces together with an island for casual seating.

Conceptual Design #1372: Bonus Room Floor PlanNear the kitchen is a huge walk-in pantry with sun tunnel, a powder room, and an e-space leading to a relaxing screened porch. The angle of the garage allows for a spacious utility room as well as extra storage and a coat closet, while stairs lead to a bonus room large enough to become a fourth bedroom with bathroom.

Each bedroom has a walk-in closet and private bath, and the master suite is spacious with a tray ceiling, rear views, two walk-in closets, and a large bathroom with separate vanities, soaking tub and walk-in shower.

    Would love to see if this plan could be modified to include a lower level. Live in MI and basements are a standard in the area.

    Finally, a house plan that doesn’t need many changes. This is perfect for our family. We will be building this spring and hope this is done. I know if I ordered now, you’d move it up but we need to analyze further to see if modifications need to be made. We are building this with our in-laws so need to consider 2 families, 4 adults and no kids.

    Smart use of every inch in this house plan.We like the size of every
    room,the angle of garage ,and many other pluses,like the 1/2 bath
    is close to the outside use.
    The living room,has wall to have barn door for privacy or winter evenings.
    Bath rooms need to have toilet on the out side wall for air exchange.We would switch the space w.shower. in master bath.
    Kitchen will be nice w.2 windows-good day light and the open layout is absolutely perfect for family.

    Like the exterior design and elements and some of the interior ideas presented in this conceptual home plan, but wish Don Gardner would create more hillside / walk-out basement plans with two bedrooms on main level, two en-suite bedrooms and baths on lower level, all in the 2,200 to 2,500 square feet range! So many of these plans are all 3,000 + square feet and are not suited for any place other than a large flat building site. Have a 1 acre lot in north Asheville half way up Elk Mountain with a sloped site…….building costs are higher there so design “small” (lower construction costs) that looks and creates the illusion of “big” with more open spaces and a narrower footprint. Thanks!

    I think there are too many windows in the garage which eat up wall space and require privacy shades…why not do transoms – high enough that people can’t see in? Also, when you come in off the garage you have no where to set down your phone or take off your coat until 10ft in. Be nice to have a small space to drop off all the stuff a little closer in. Lovely plan.

    Great plan! I like how the garage is angled allowing it to fit on a lot better. For our particular use (to keep costs down and have less to clean) I’d make it a 2 car garage and have the 2 bedrooms on the left side of the house share a bathroom. I agree with a previous poster that from the looks of this house it seems more like French Country rather than Craftsman.

    I have been searching high and low for this. It’s everything we’ve been looking for. Didn’t want a formal dining and a breakfast nook. Plus it’s been difficult to find this square footage with only three bedrooms. Wishing it wasn’t still in the conceptual stage. Great job though.

    Agree with previous people. I would buy this plan for sure.

    How would we know when a plan like this is available for sale?

      Hi Nick,
      When the plan is available I’ll reply to this comment, which should send you an email alert. We’ll also update this post with “Now Available” stamped on the plan rendering.
      If this is definitely the plan you want, you can order it in advance over the phone and we will put it into production right away – it would take approximately 14-16 weeks to complete and ship! Give us a call for more info at 1-800-388-7580

        I love this plan! Very practical. I’m just doing some house plan searching. I plan to build my next house. I was wondering if you have considered a 4th bedroom for this plan? I was thinking of turning the screen porch into a 4th bedroom. Do you have this idea floating around already? Thank you.

    I do not like houses with exterior angles greater than 90 degrees.
    So I would straighten that out. And I love the exterior but wouldn’t call it Craftsman. Looks more French Country to me.
    I’d use the study for formal dining and the dining room for casual dining.
    Basically I love the house.

    Love the floor plan. How wide will this house be? I am looking for a house not wider than 87 feet. Also will there be different elevations available. I am looking for an English cottage feel with a front porch.

    Is there any way the Master Bedroom, Den and the other two bedrooms could be vaulted with beams?

    I love that vaulted look that is so popular now with wood beams.

    As my wife looked over my shoulder, she commented that the e-space would be convenient as a serving space (butler pantry) for the porch and dining area. Maybe it would be a good place for a sink.

    Wow! A home run! Love all the details- espace off kitchen, location of screened porch, many closets, large rooms including utility room, study, DR with cut out for china or a built in, Kitchen, and Great Room with built ins. I would probably make the closet from the back hall open to study to hide equipment needed for that room. You would still have room for a built in and cubbies for coats in the back hall of garage. I love the bonus – the size of all the rooms is so good. Usually they are scaled down and become really hard for a boomer to scale back to but this one is out of the park! Master is great size with good closet space. I would add a linen closet in the master- I think it could be easily worked in with the one and only only real change I would make: line up the master bath wall to the right exterior wall (when facing home from street) and then center the tub with the hall entrance- put in a barrell ceiling for a wow factor and you would never want to leave home! I want to live here! Awesome plan!

    If I were looking for a larger home, I’d like this. My only change would be to flip the half bath and pantry. Since it’s the only public use bath, I’d rather access it from that hallway and the mudroom, rather than near the dining area.

    Love this plan…I would love to make the great room fireplace into a two sided firepla e for the master bedroom. Also, I would make a basement version. 🙂
