Great Room: The Runnymeade Plan #1164

Great room

The interior features tray ceilings in almost every common room, granting a luxurious feel to each. The breakfast room is hugged by a bow window, as is the master bedroom.

A 13 foot high ceiling in the great room adds a feeling of spaciousness, while built-in cabinetry, a fireplace, and special ceiling details create a welcoming space for entertaining or just relaxing.

The breakfast room, great room, kitchen and dining room are all just a step away from one another, allowing conversation to flow throughout the living areas.

Living extends outdoors

The sprawling porch and patio just off the great room are an added bonus, and a fireplace on the porch is a great way to keep warm during cooler months.

 Functional spaces make living easy

Perfectly positioned, the bedrooms ensure privacy from one another. Two secondary bedrooms share a bath and the elegant master suite is located in the rear of the home. The generous utility room is sure to please any homeowner and sits just off the garage without blocking the walkway. The garage includes a small storage area, and a bonus room above awaits the imagination!

  • The huge country kitchen has 2 pantries
  • Relaxing wraparound porches, front and back.
  • Upstairs balcony opens up the great room.

 

 

Twin gables, sidelights, and an arched entryway accent the façade of this two-story home, while decorative ceiling treatments, bay windows, and French doors adorn the interior. The sister plan to the Peppermill, this design has even more square footage and additional features. Columns and clipped corners create a unique formal dining room, while a buffet niche makes entertaining simple. A powder room serves the great room and the cozy living room/study, and the master suite is oversized and topped with a tray ceiling.

Great Room: Hickory Ridge Plan #916

Great room

Supported by columns, a curved balcony overlooks the two-story, 20’x16′ great room. A fireplace flanked by built-in cabinetry creates a welcoming atmosphere in this large space, while two sets of French doors lead to a relaxing back porch.

Columns also mark the transition from the great room to the kitchen and breakfast room, and allow conversation to flow throughout the space.

 

 

Three secondary bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a large bonus room make up the second floor. Extra storage can be found throughout, including walk-in closets, two pantries, a spacious utility room, and a large storage bay in the garage that could house a golf cart or workshop.
