This hillside walkout house plan showcases Craftsman charm in a stunning facade through stone and siding and a triplet of arches over the front porch. Inside this house plan, two levels of well-positioned rooms promote privacy and an open layout. The spacious great room accesses both a rear porch and the dining room, and features a fireplace, built-in shelves and cathedral ceiling. Tray ceilings crown the dining room, master bedroom and master bath for additional interest. Nothing short of elegant, the master suite includes two walk-in closets, as well as dual sinks and a separate shower and tub. The versatile bedroom/study is perfect for overnight guests, as it rests on the other side of the home and includes an adjacent full bath. The lower level of this house plan consists of two bedrooms, each with a private bath, and a family room with wet bar and patio access. Perfect for growing children or live-in relatives, the basement accommodates expansion.
Graceful arches contrast with high gables for a stunning exterior on this Craftsman house plan. Windows with decorative transoms and several French doors flood the open floor plan with natural light. Tray ceilings in the dining room and master bedroom as well as cathedral ceilings in the bedroom/study, great room, kitchen and breakfast area create architectural interest, along with visual space in this house plan. 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. Positioned for privacy, the master suite features access to the screened porch, dual walk-in closets and a well-appointed bath, including a private privy, garden tub, double vanity and spacious shower.
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.
This luxury home plan captures the essence of fine living. Stately stone and gentle arches create a welcoming facade and make a grand statement in Old World style. Luxurious details and abundant conveniences define The Capistrano. A domed foyer, coffered dining room and spacious library form a sophisticated entry that flows into the large great room. A gourmet kitchen and adjoining hearth room are equally perfect for family living and lavish entertaining. Unique in its design, the circular breakfast area adds visual interest.
The Bluestone home plan packs four bedrooms and loads of style into a modest footprint. With an open and efficient arrangement of the great room, kitchen, and dining areas, a deluxe master suite well separated from the secondary bedrooms, optional office/study or 4th bedroom, huge laundry room, roomy screen porch with fireplace, skylit porch flooding the interior with natural light, and enormous bonus room over the garage, the Bluestone home plan lives much larger than its square footage, and is the ideal family home plan.
