This quintessential urban farmhouse features a board-and-batten exterior with a metal accent roof and a welcoming front porch. The great room and dining room share a cathedral ceiling and a spacious screened porch extends living outdoors. The kitchen is highlighted by an island and a pantry is nearby. A mud room entry offers a seat to comfortably remove shoes and a closet to hang coats and bags. The master suite is truly luxurious with a double sink vanity, a separate walk-in shower and bathtub, and a spacious walk-through closet that accesses the utility room. Two additional bedrooms are perfect for children and the shared bathroom offers a double sink vanity.
Vertical siding meets metal roof accents to bring modern style to this angled Ranch design. The angled orientation of the master suite creates a private retreat that is surrounded by windows. Couples will enjoy the dual sink vanity, separate walk-in shower and freestanding bathtub, and a spacious walk-in closet. The floor plan is open with an easy flow between the great room, kitchen, and dining room. A drop-zone and pantry offer storage and organization for busy lives. Three additional bedrooms round out this family-friendly design while front and rear porches invite outdoor relaxation.
Building a home provides numerous benefits, but at the top of many people’s lists is the ability to choose the new home’s features — to have everything they wanted for a comfortable lifestyle.

Here are some reasons why dedicated laundry room solutions are ideal for your newly built home.

The view is a major factor to consider when mulling lake house ideas.
