Conceptual House Plan 1471

Leave us your feedback and suggestions at the bottom of this post!

Conceptual house plan 1471 is an updated version of The Clearlake plan 1272. This stylish ranch is wrapped in stone and board-and-batten siding while an efficient roof is topped with a unique clerestory dormer.

Stone columns create a stunning entry, along with French doors that open to storage closets on each side. Modern and open, the great room and dining room are combined and clerestory windows to the front and rear flood this space with natural light. The kitchen overlooks the living spaces and a bar and pantry are nearby. A side porch provides entry to the two-car garage and multiple storage spaces are available.

The master suite is private with sliding doors that open to a rear patio. The master bathroom and walk-in closet are designed for two. Two additional bedroom each have a walk-in closet and share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. A screened porch takes meals and relaxation outdoors.

    I am currently looking for a plan to build ASAP. This one really caught my eye. When will it be ready? I agree with many of the above comments. A more open kitchen (loose the U shape) with a large island (a view to the outside would be nice), a door from the laundry room into the master closet, clawfoot tub in master, linen in master bath is a must and separate vanities would be a real plus. If I build it, I would also move the garage to the side and add a longer, wider front porch.

    The Clearlake plan has always been a favorite plan of mine. The 1471 plan changes are just what I’ve been waiting for. Having the butler’s pantry/bar is a great change from the office. Enlarging the kitchen was the way to go. Designing it with a modern flair is perfect. The only changes I would make are to connect the master closet to the laundry so you can put clothes right into the wash. I wouldn’t utilize the porch because you can walk right out of the garage for access. There is already storage for the garage. I would redesign the master bath with a walk thru shower behind a soaker tub, taking in the extra space from the storage closet and porch. Designing an outdoor kitchen with a seating area and TV rather than the screened in porch would make this plan perfect for me.

    I LOVE THIS. Almost entirely perfect. Only notes: room in the mudroom area for some shelving/lockers. Also, the suggestion of a door to the Laundry through the MBR closet. That is it! Brilliant.

    On 1471 I would like to see the garage and MB swapped with garage on back side and MB on front so there is not as large of a protrusion out the front right side of the house. I would also like to see the kitchen a little larger/ more open. Maybe take one side of the U shape out?

  5. Stacey Newcome on

    For me, we live in the kitchen so I would like to see a larger kitchen and have it be more eat in and open. I love having an island with nothing in it but maybe a small prep sink.

  6. Cindy Rooker on

    Love the plan!!! You could put the laundry where the little porch and storage are and move the door coming in from the garage over and make the pantry larger.

  7. Ann Smith on

    This is a really nice, attainable design. Love the clerestory, it really freshens up the ranch design. If I were to build it, I would make the garage a three car width simply to add storage since there is no basement or bonus room. Remove that little porch by the garage, just incorporate the storage and porch areas into the garage for maybe a workbench spot? Then, take the back porch out to line up with the back edges of the master bedroom and screened porch. One more change would be to push the master shower wall into the closet a bit to give a little extra room in there.

  8. Ellen R. Reid on

    Rather than having the storage off the porch by the garage, I think it would be nice to come into the house without having to walk through the garage. If I wanted to come through the garage I would just open up one of the garage doors.

  9. Melanie on

    I really like this but it needs to be a bit bigger. An office is needed. The dining room/great room seems small once furniture is in there. I do wonder if the kitchen might be dark & a bit cramped. I love the way the butler’s pantry is. We use ours as a coffee/tea bar, & couldn’t get along without it. Also the pantry is too small. I prefer a laundry room on an outside wall, outside access even better. We like a front facing garage and would never build a garage less than at least 26X26 again. Love the sizes of the bedrooms and bathrooms especially the separate shower & tub in the jack and Jill bath. Love the master bathroom, we do not like corner bathtubs so really appreciate the layout a lot. I would have a built in bench with storage under it in place of one the entry closets.
