Built-ins in the great room and additional room in the garage add convenient storage. While a screened porch allows for comfortable outdoor entertaining, a bonus room lies near two additional bedrooms and offers flexibility in this house plan.

Board-n-batten siding accents a box bay set off by stone. A metal roof tops another bay window, while dormers, arches and columns create a dramatic entrance to this European house plan. The family-efficient floorplan features a natural traffic flow, making everyday living easier. The column and tray ceiling of the dining room opens to the grand cathedral ceiling of the great room. An angled counter is all that separates the kitchen from the breakfast nook. Flexibility abounds in a study/bedroom and bonus room, while the master suite provides a private haven. As a bay window, tray ceiling and French doors highlight the master bedroom, the master bath is complete with a private privy, double vanity, separate shower and garden tub.
