This classic Craftsman house plan is complete in Cedar shake siding and stone accents. The garage has been relocated from a front, side entry to a rear, side entry. The front porch is framed in columns and an arched entryway is a charming addition.
This design lives much larger than its 2649 sq ft by making efficient use of space with garage storage, a walk-in pantry, a spacious utility room and mudroom. Each bedroom has spacious closets and the master bedroom includes a sitting area and access to the back porch. This house plan has an enlarged screen porch with vaulted ceiling just off the dining room which features an inviting fireplace for year-round enjoyment. You also have a nice covered porch area off the back of the house.
This house design also enjoys a single dining area that is ideal for family meals. When the weather is nice, take dining to the screened porch and for those cooler days, the outdoor fireplace keeps it nice and cozy. The great room is spacious and opens to a rear porch while the kitchen enjoys front of house views and a large island.
The master suite features a bathroom designed for two and a huge master walk-in closet with seating bench. A full bath adjoins the bedroom/study and an additional full bath and linen closet are shared by two secondary bedrooms.
The depth of the garage has been enlarged to accommodate larger vehicles and a storage bay is available for keeping outdoor gear or lawn equipment. The oversized bonus room above offers additional space for a guest bedroom, craft room, or media room.
