Conceptual House Design 1432 is a four bedroom, 2379 sq. ft. version of The Marley home plan #1285. The exterior features a combination of stone, siding, and cedar shakes. A centered shed dormer and metal accents create a  focal point for this charming cottage. Arches, columns, and timber wood details are special features that add to the character of this home.

The great room is cozy with a coffered ceiling and fireplace.  It also opens to a rear porch with skylights. The kitchen features a pass-through into the great room and an island  that overlooks the dining room. A screened porch with fireplace provides outdoor views from three sides.

The master suite is privately located at the rear of the home and enjoys two walk-in closets, a bath with dual vanities and large soaking tub. Three additional bedrooms are perfect for children, guests, and a study. A spacious utility room, pantry, and additional storage can be found nearby the two-car garage.

    I love this plan. The porches are very important since we live in Florida. I love the kitchen open to the great room. My husband and I have two closets in our bedroom now and this is a wonderful feature for this floor plan. It is also a narrow design being 63 feet. This plan will help us narrow down which plan to build since we are looking at 3 plans and trying to decide which one to build. Great job!

    I like the plan updates, as well. The separate kitchen and dining room is nice. I like the addition of the extra bedroom and bath. Since closet space is always tight these days, wouldn’t it make sense to pull the front bedroom forward a bit and let both bedrooms have wider closets? Bonus rooms are always situated over the garage, which is nice, but isn’t there room over the utility and mudrooms that can be used for extra space, as well? Love DAG designs. Keep up the good work!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this house! The Marley has been on my list for years, but this kitchen layout is much better!!! (I wasn’t happy with the doorway opening right into the island).
    Not sure if I’ll ever get the chance to build a DAG house, but I sure do have fun thinking about it.
    Keep up the good work!

    Really like that you moved the cooktop off the island. This is a change I always thought should be made. Plus, adding another foot to the kitchen and making the single dining area more full-sized was a great choice. Add to that the enlarging of the laundry room, and this plan has been made a lot more livable, IMO.

    I really like this plan. I love the living areas – the omission of a dining room is great! The things that would keep me from building this house are: no walk in pantry and the master bathroom. The closets should be flipped with the bathroom. The toilet shower area just doest work. I would also need a 3 car garage. That’s an easy adjustment.
