The Sarafine is a luxury design on a hillside walkout. Arches and a cupola highlight the exterior, along with a metal accent roof. The kitchen island, with cook-top, faces the great room and the dining room offers a serving bar and a nearby walk-in pantry. A sitting room accompanies the elegant master suite. The over-sized utility room enjoys a laundry sink, built-in cabinetry and access to the side porch. Downstairs, find two bedrooms, a media/game room, and a workshop.

Conceptual design 1403

Conceptual design 1403 is derived from The Birchwood House Plan #1239. The Birchwood is one of our best-selling home plan designs and it’s especially popular for those looking for a one-story home plan. When coming up with this new home design, we wanted to bring customers a floor plan we knew they’ d love and also had the benefit of a walkout basement for those building on a sloping lot. The exterior brings the familiar gables and arches that are quintessential to the Craftsman styling of The Birchwood.

The master suite has a very similar layout with its rear sitting room and porch access. We’ve relocated the kitchen to the front of the home and made good use of space with a large single dining area that can be formal or casual. The walk-in pantry is nicely tucked away with an e-space, extra storage and the spacious utility room. A side-entry porch offers convenient entry to the home and rear entry into the garage. Three-car garages are in high demand these days and this plan does not disappoint.

The basement level features two secondary bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and walk-in closet. The media/game room is centrally located and offers plenty of gathering space. Unfinished space can be used for storage or setting up a work shop. You will still find an upstairs bonus room over the garage that can be finished or left unfinished.

      Hi Carla, we have other designs on our schedule for completion before Design 1403 so we have not assigned a completion date at this time. If you would like to place an order, we can get it moved ahead on the schedule. Contact us at 1-800-388-7580 for more information.

    Reduce the size of the basement bedrooms to increase the size of the media room. Instead of a sitting room in the Master, increase the room size and move the room toward the rear (into the existing sitting room area). This would give room for larger closets in the Master and linen closet in the hallway. Also, an angled garage would be great!

    Love this design! Has many of my must-haves already in place. I love this European feel with hipped roof; are hipped rooflines more expensive to build than typical gable rooflines?

    If I requested a version with the garage moved to the back, rear right corner of the house, would it be possible to extend the porch to the right, and wrap it around the corner of the kitchen? The current garage-entry door would become the 2nd porch doorway, more in the style of a farmhouse with wraparound porch. Would this be possible and still retain the European style elevation (because I don’t want the farmhouse look)? None of the floorplans with a front-facing corner porch seem to have the hipped roof with stacked stone or cedar shake accents – am I trying to force two elements together that don’t integrate from an architectural standpoint?

    Thanks for any light you can shed – I’ve probably looked at thousands of floorplans over the last 2 years!

      Hi Sunkatz, In general, the more complicated the roof line, the more expensive the design is to build. We are not involved in the building process so I’m afraid we’re not able to give any specifics on the building costs of our plans.
      Our designers can help with most modifications. They would be able to give you better insights into how the changes will affect the overall look and style of the home. I’m sure our designer would be able to extend the porch and come up with a way to retain the European styling. If not, she would be clear about that from the beginning of the modification process. To get more information, contact customer service at 1-800-388-7580.
