The Orwell – Home Plan 1259

The Orwell is lovingly designed with special features throughout. Arches and columns create a welcoming exterior presence. The interior is classic, with a formal dining room, butler’s pantry and a breakfast nook. A powder room is conveniently located for guests and a large utility room will accommodate every need. A pocket office is a hidden gem with a sun tunnel bringing in natural light.

    Hi. For the kitchen, I want a big island instead and the faucet should be along side with the the burner. Is that possible?

    I really want my kitchen to have Windows. My current home has 2 good size Windows in it facing both west and south. The kitchen is always bright and I can see what’s going on outside. I’d much rather have Windows in my kitchen, than my eating area. We spend way more time in the kitchen.
    This house is nice, but it’s really important that I get my Windows. Hopefully, some of your future one plans will. My husband and I are empty nesters. Here’s what we want:
    large master bedroom,
    large master bath with 2 separate vanities, 2 equal closets, large shower, NO BATHTUB, private toilet,
    large open concept kitchen with Windows and a pantry, open to dining area (don’t want a formal dining room) and large great room with fireplace,
    2 small additional bedrooms preferably with jack and Jill bath with 2 vanities,
    powder room,
    closet near front entrance and the entrance from garage,
    2 1/2 car garage (side entrance) with 2 separate doors,
    large screened porch,
    front porch,
    large bonus room over garage with full bath and closet. This will be used by us for pool table and theatre room.
    I want all of this to be no more than 2500 sq ft on the main floor. Plus, I want an attractive exterior.
    That pretty much sums it up. I’ve looked at thousands of plans and as much as I like the Don Gardner plans, I haven’t found the “one” yet. Thank you. Even though I haven’t found “it” yet. It’s fun looking.

    Our builder is doing the first walk through of our property with us tomorrow. He will begin our home building process..getting approval from the county etc regarding our site plans.
    Assuming we are approved and we order house plan, The Orwell # 1259, when will the plans be in our hands?
    Appreciate your timely response, Deborah

    I am very interested in this plan. My husband and I are ’emty-nesters’ and I love the plans that have the laundry room adjoining the master closet. This one is very close. We also have a lot that needs a house suited for a back yard view, and this seems to be good for that as well!

  5. Beth Glover on

    I’m also looking at plans with kitchen windows over the sink. I like your master plans that place the toilet farther away, for increased privacy, and two closets. Those are great.

  6. Margie on

    I, too, am looking for a kitchen and breakfast nook with a window. Seems like since some time in the 90s, kitchens get buried in the interior of the house.
    I’m also looking for a mud room
    I’m old fashioned and looking for a formal living and dining. Just can’t seem to find a plan with all the features I want.

  7. Jena on

    I’m loving these plans but need one with a mudroom and laundry on one side of the house leading to a “detached” garage please!

  8. Mark Cole on

    I like this plan and would like to know when it is available. Get rid of the e-space as computers can be used anywhere in the house. its not clear if the stairs go to a bonus space above the garage or the basement. if the basement, then you should be able to down them directly from the garage.

  9. Anna on

    Please design a plan with kitchen (with WINDOW please) which opens to dining room only, and is not visible from grand room. We would like to be able to watch TV with my kids in the grand room, but we do not want to put large flat screen TV over the fire place (preferably the TV should be hang on the wall perpendicular to the wall with fireplace, so TV and fireplace do not compete).
    I am an European and would like also to see more plans with contemporary flair .
    I love most of your floor plans but I can not find THE ONE ( with features as described above (one story , with bonus space above garage which may be converted into 4th/ guest bedroom, basement access, below 2600 SF) .


  10. Marta on

    I would like to see the stairs near the garage. Also, get rid of the e space bc you can use a computer anywhere in the house and make better use of the space. I would like to see a walk in pantry in the kitchen or something else done with the e space. This area of the plan could def be improved.
