The Nelson – Home Plan 1416

Tapered columns frame this country porch and a front-facing dormer accents the roof. The kitchen is the center of this design and overlooks the dining room. The great room is cozy with a fireplace and coffered ceiling and opens to the rear porch. Positioned for privacy, the master suite is located away from high traffic areas. A three-car garage and large utility room appeal to modern homeowners.

Conceptual Design #1416

We’ve listened to your feedback and suggestions regarding our house plan designs and found today’s  homeowner is looking for an efficient home plan without giving up design aesthetics. Our goal is always to design house plans that are visually pleasing with the architectural details you’ve grown to expect from Donald Gardner home designs and a floor plan that makes good use of its square footage. We think we have done just that with Conceptual Design #1416.

Leave us your feedback and suggestions at the bottom of this post!

Conceptual Design #1416 is derived from The Drake House Plan #1371. The exterior combines siding and stone and is adorned with  gables, columns, and a dormer. A lower pitched roof and simpler lines help keep building costs down.

The cozy great room features a fireplace and opens to a rear screened porch. The luxury master suite provides a tray ceiling, dual walk-in closets, and a bath made for pampering.  A bedroom/study meets the needs of today’s busy homeowner and can function as an additional bedroom, guest room, or a home office.

The single dining space is designed with the modern homeowner in mind. The kitchen enjoys a center island and nearby walk-in pantry. Secondary bedrooms share a bath and hallway linen closet. The utility room provides extra functionality with a sink and counter space, as well as outdoor access to a side porch.

A modern home plan would not be complete without a three-car garage. Thanks to clever designing, the lower roof pitch does not prevent this home plan design from offering a bonus room upstairs.

    This plan is fantastic. We’ve been looking for a modern ranch around 2000 sq ft. Would it be possible to have 10′ ceiling throughout- I noticed the secondary spaces have 9′ ceilings. Would this compromise the bonus room upstairs? We like 10′ interior doors. Thanks!

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this plan, BUT the lot we are planning to build on can only take a 58′ x 80′ floor plan. Is there any way to shrink it width-wise and also increase the depth to compensate (keeping it about 2100 sq. ft.)? The house plan itself (everything about it!!!) is perfect for me!! To make it dreamy, would it be possible to take the screen porch all the way across the master bedroom and add an outdoor fireplace (somewhat like the screen porch in the Travis)? I would be happy to forgo the third car garage for a two car front load version. If you could do this, I will definitely purchase!!!! Keeping my fingers crossed…..

    Would a modification to make the coffered ceiling into a cathedral ceiling be possible? I’m having a really hard time finding a plan that I love with the cathedral ceiling as we really want to do open trusses for design element.

    This is perfect square footage for us retirees BUT why are all the kitchen designs in the middle and no longer have a window wall over the sink? Looking out to the outside is much, much better—at least for me. Also, this plan would be very nice with a sunroom.
    The length is OK but 9′ is a little too narrow. The 3 car garage is a big plus! We are looking very hard to find something nice, suitable for a primary residence in the mountains.

    I love the Drake plan but it’s a little too large for what we need. This seems to be the perfect compromise for space & layout. I don’t mind losing the e-space. Does the roofline at the back of the house make adding the screen porch possible at a later time?
