This one-story European home plan is as functional as it is beautiful.


The roomy kitchen includes a versatile e-space, opens to both the great room and single dining area, and accesses an ideal service area with pantry, mud room with storage and large utility room with sink. A lavish master suite is tucked away privately at the rear, and separated from two secondary bedrooms and a bedroom/study with unique box tray ceiling. Check out all the great details you will find in this new home plan from Donald A. Gardner Architects!

Front Elevation - Conceptual Design #1322

Conceptual Plan 1322 is a derivative of our popular design # 1180. This plan has kept many of the same features including the Old World, French Country exterior, but now with one dining area, that is open to both the kitchen and great room while each still retains their own defined spaces. The master bath vanity was lengthened and a linen closet was added for more storage. A mudroom was included off the garage and the utility room has been enlarged to allow for more storage and usage options, with an exterior entrance added as well. The screened porch still features a fireplace and summer kitchen, but now skylights will bring more natural light to the space.

    I see that this comment has already been made a few times, but strength in numbers, right? I think the kitchen sink under the window would be wonderful and remove the cabinets opposite the foyer wall to allow for a nice big rectangular island, maybe with a prep sink. Also, I would love to see the secondary bedrooms with a jack and jill bath and maybe only a powder room as the 3rd bath. The master bathroom seems a bit crowded. Not sure how to fix it, but it does seem too small. The front elevation is beautiful. We just purchased our lot and I can’t wait to see what this final plan looks like.

    Love this plan. I agree with others about moving sink under kitchen windows and adding island instead of plan’s curved serving bar. I would make one large walk-in closet in master and put a door into laundry room. Also would definitely want a basement.
    We hope to build soon. Can this plan be purchased now?

  3. Sam on

    There are so many plans that are almost perfect for my family. I have little ones, so I would like to see a study/guest room on the same side of the home as the master. I would love the other two bedrooms on the opposite side of the home with a jack and jill bathroom (each having their on vanity). I love the mudroom/ laundry room layout on this plan. I also love the master suite layout on this plan as well. I would love a half bath near an entry, instead of the full bath for the guest room.

  4. Crystal on

    Love the open great room, kitchen, and dining room. Would like to see with walk in closets for the bedrooms, take out one of the full baths. Add a 1/2 bath for guests to use. And squeeze in a walk in pantry (all while staying around 2400 sq ft).

  5. MzK on

    As with other commentors, I would definitely move the sink to outside wall under the window and have the cabinets come into it. This would leave the “island” in a somewhat awkward state and I don’t know what to do about that. Peninsula uppers might make this part mesh with the kitchen better.

    The extra bedrooms seem a bit scrunched to me. I might elongate the back wall to align with the bottom wall of the master bedroom leaving a 3′ walkway from the LR to the screen porch, and insert walk-in closets between them.

    I would change the front bath into just a powder room and with the bedrooms elongated, the back bathroom would be bigger. I really disklike scrunched up bathrooms!

    Mostly a pretty decent plan over the original especially in terms of potential noise traffice from the garage outside the master bedroom. Keep up the great work!

  6. Lisa on

    I like most of your plans, however, the one-level house plans always have the bonus room upstairs. Conceptual Plan 1322 is almost ideal, but I would like to see the bonus room located on the main level. I know that this plan is nearly complete, but please consider publishing a similar plan with the bonus room on one level. As we age, stairs are not really our friend…….

  7. Dodra Eschenfelder on

    I agree with moving the sink under the window. I would prefer to eliminate the front bathroom, move the front study/bedroom over to enlarge the porch and create a more impressive front door and foyer space. Also either a laundry drop or door from master closet would be convenient. I always want a full length mirror in my closet so another option would be to reduce center wall between the two master closets and create a T wall for a mirror which could be viewed from the hall space when a double closet door was open.

  8. Sonya Stephens on

    I am in agreement with moving the sink and dishwasher to the window area. Our current home has the set up shown on the concept, and the noise factor of running water is very distracting to those in the family area. I would also like some sort of access to master closet from laundry room. Otherwise, very pleased with this design.

  9. Andrea Driver on

    Alternately, I would move the main kitchen sink to the front wall where the e-space is now. Then, get rid of the angled island and replace it with a different rectangular island more towards the center of the kitchen with knee space and a couple or three stools on the long side facing the great room.

    • Patti Surak on

      Like the openness of this plan. Would move sink to window since that is an option – nothing much prettier and inviting in a kitchen than a pretty sink under a big trimmed out window for natural light. Would add a large island with space to eat and a prep sink. Noticed on the concept drawing that the dining area began with larger dimensions – should have left it that way if possible. The new dining area is too small to be the only one and every foot counts. When dining areas are more informal and off the kitchen, they should be a little larger to create a dining/hearth/gathering room feel with room to move around; my current dining room is slightly larger than this one and there is just enough room for a large family table and buffet. Love all your plans for the most part and especially the newer open one and two-story(up – not basement) designs. Like the new mudroom/utility areas and some with access to outside.
