Conceptual House Plan 1481

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

Conceptual design 1481 is a updated version of The Oakway house plan 968. The exterior is a mix of siding with stone-and-shake accents. This design works well on a narrower lot, with front-facing garage bays and a width of only 57 feet.

The garage offers a large storage closet and just inside, a drop zone is available for dropping bags, coats, and shoes. A walk-in pantry is near the service entry to drop off dry goods while carrying in groceries. The spacious L-shaped kitchen has plenty of cabinet space with an island housing the sink and dishwasher. Bar seating is available at the island while a dining room with buffet niche is just steps away. The great room features a vaulted ceiling and at the center is a fireplace with built-in bookshelves on each side. A covered porch to the rear offers an additional storage closet.

The bedrooms are separated for privacy. The master suite is a quiet retreat at the rear of the home, with dual walk-in closets and a well-appointed master bathroom. Two additional bedrooms are generously sized and share a full bathroom with a double-sink vanity.

A spacious bonus room above the garage meets the homeowners need for additional storage, a space for hobbies, or a media room.

    I love this plan too. The only thing I would do besides the bathroom door suggested above is to put a closet off the garage. Either replace the drop zone with one or if there is room to cut into the dining room a little, put a closet where the storage is. I would do it on both sides so you have a closet in the garage too.

    We are looking for our retirement plan and this is excellent. I agree a side load garage would be preferable though this would work on a smaller lot. I would remove the garage storage to make the master bath larger; perhaps a longer vanity divided with a countertop cabinet. I would also remove the outside storage in the back to make a grilling porch. Love the pantry and drop zone!

    This is a nice design. I had the same thought as CM regarding the family bathroom. Perhaps replace bathtub with a walk-in shower and eliminate the hall closet. I’d like to explore this design further with some modifications. Instead of a front loading garage, change it to a side load like conceptual design 1439. Also replace exterior storage in the rear porch with outdoor kitchen/grill and add outdoor fireplace at the other end of the porch. I also like the elevation of 1439.

    This is a great plan. The only change I would make is switching the family bathroom around. Reverse it so that from the dining room you see the linen closet and the wall blocks the view into the bathroom.
