Conceptual house plan 1520 is a Craftsman design with two floors of living space.
House Plan 1520 is an updated version of The Mosscliff plan 1338-D with a second story instead of a walk-out basement. The front façade enjoys rustic elements with stone accents and decorative wooden brackets in the gables. Board-and-batten contrasts with a simple siding while a metal accent roof and tapered columns enhance curb-appeal.
A narrow lot is not a problem for The Althea, with a 40-foot width and a rear entry garage. The modest floor plan is exceptional with a spacious island kitchen and open living spaces for entertaining. A walk-in pantry, powder room and study offer convenience while front and rear porches extend living outdoors. The master suite is upstairs with dormer windows welcoming natural light. Dual sinks, a walk-in shower, and a soaking tub complete the master bathroom. Two additional bedrooms with walk-in closets share a bathroom and the utility room is conveniently nearby. Finish the bonus room for a home gym or media room.
