This classic cottage home plan offers maximum comfort for its economic design and narrow lot width. A cozy front porch invites relaxation, while twin dormers and a gabled garage provide substantial curb appeal. The foyer features a generous coat closet and a niche for displaying collectibles. The great room gains drama from two clerestory dormers and a balcony that overlooks the room from the second floor. With plenty of space for more than one cook, the kitchen services both dining room and great room with ease. Topped by an elegant tray ceiling, the home plan’s first floor master suite enjoys a private bath and walk-in closet, while the upstairs bedrooms and bonus room share a hall bath with linen closet.

Rendering to reality of The Valmead Park plan 1153.

This traditional house plan features several gable peaks and a triplet of columns to create a stunning facade. The interior layout positions rooms for ultimate privacy and convenience. A vaulted ceiling and fireplace accent the great room that also overlooks the kitchen and rear porch. Skylights brighten the back porch, showcasing detail to even the outdoor living area. The kitchen’s angled serving bar serves as a divider between the kitchen and great room. Tucked away in the rear of the home is the master suite. Two walk-in closets and an elegant master bath makeup the suite. For families that need extra storage space or constantly are tracking in dirt, the mudroom leads into the garage and utility room. Upstairs, a bedroom and full bath complete the house plan, while the bonus space awaits the homeowner’s imagination.
