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

Conceptual Design #1417 is a hillside walkout basement version of our popular home plan The Markham #1299. This French Country exterior with hip roof and sloping gable is designed with shakes and stone and adorned with arch-topped windows, decorative wooden details, and a front facing dormer.

The foyer welcomes guests to a great room crowned with an intricately detailed tray ceiling.  The front-facing kitchen enjoys a window over the sink and a center island. A large single dining space opens to a rear screened porch with vaulted ceiling, summer kitchen, and fireplace. The adjacent covered porch expands the outdoor living across to the master bedroom with its own entrance. A sitting room, dual walk-in closets, and spa-quality bath complete the expansive master suite. Also on the first floor is a study with full bath, an over-sized walk-in pantry, a multi-functional utility room, and mud room.

Two large bedrooms with full baths and walk-in closets occupy the basement level. The media room features a bar and opens to a rear terrace with storage for outdoor equipment. Unfinished square footage awaits the homeowners needs.

      Hi Haven, all home photography is volunteered to us by the builders or homeowners that have purchased our plans and completed construction. The Trenton is a new design and we haven’t received any photos yet. If any come in, we will share them to our website and release notification on our social media sites so be sure to follow us!

    Love the room sizes – way to maximize usable space by eliminating the central double staircase and moving it to an up/down staircase (like in the Birchwood)-access bsmt & bonus garage room.(or like the Chesnee w/o 2 extra bdrms & sitting room – straight foundation in rear.
    Then I’d like to reduce the amount of bathrooms in the basement to 1. Altho I’d make the bathroom have an exterior door & a changing area and have separate shower & toilet area – we live on a lake). Put the bedrooms next to one another (easier access to bathroom) and move Rec Room to the right so staircase enters there.”

    I love this plan! I would love to see the kitchen, dining room, screened porch like “the Chaucer”…big kitchen island with seating for 6 or more..across the width of the room-not long way…

    I like the plan. We just purchased a sloping lot and looking for plans like this. Our king size bed and night stands need 16′ of wall space, so I suggest another foot or two on the Master bedroom wall so my furniture would encroach on the sitting area. I’d also push the dining room our a few feet to allow for a row of cabinets and counter to separate the kitchen from the dining room. If you had to bump the Great Room to get the added space for the Dining Room, that would be a plus for me. While I love tray ceilings, I’d like a vaulted or some other tall dramatic ceiling. Not sure how to solve for this, but a coat closet for guest coats in the foyer would be nice. I’d keep the bonus space above the garage.

    Please, PLEASE do a floor plan with this exact layout on the main floor but instead of going downstairs with the extra living space go upstairs. My lot is flat so a basement is not an option but I LOVE the main floor layout. Thanks!

    This is a wonderful plan! The added bonus space upstairs would be great to take advantage of (over garage, plus perhaps a room upstairs given the roof line). The only thing I would add would be a 1/2 bath near the utility porch entrance… perhaps extend that space on the porch side of the utility room. Hope you decide to finish this plan!

  6. Tanya Linney on

    Definitely Love this plan! What is timeframe to completion? With modifications, would it be possible to add a couple of small upstairs bedrooms with the same roofline? I would need to shift the garage, possibly an angled garage would work for me. I’d love to “wrap” the front porch around the side of the kitchen into an “L” shaped porch. Anxious to start building on my lake lot this summer, so I will take this along with another option to my builder to review for final selection.

    This design is perfect!! Beautiful exterior as well! I’m big on symmetry so these questions are pretty nitpicky but can the fireplace be centered on the wall in the living room? Is it only offset in order to be centered with the ceiling? Also, will the window in the gable on the front be centered above the front door? Lastly, do you have the rear elevation ready? Thank you!!

    I’d like to see more plans with the garage on the rear. Also, why must every master bath have the potty in a “closet”. It is not accessible for someone in a wheelchair. I don’t like being closed in but a window in there helps. Still not accessible though. At this point, I don’t need accessible but at my age, I am thinking of the future. I’ve already experienced the need for accessible bathrooms with my mother & mother-in-law and was fortunate to have one in my previous home. I want it in my next home, too. I don’t like a sitting area in the master suite either unless it is a separate room like in some of your plans. I want wall space in all bedrooms for furniture. Closets and more closets make a plan more desirable, too.
