1779 sq ft, 3 beds, 2 baths

This modest design features a front-entry garage and a narrow footprint to accommodate a smaller lot. A trio of gables are accented with vertical boards and columns highlight the front porch. The garage offers entry to the home through a mud room with a pantry and a drop zone for bags, coats and shoes. The utility room is adjacent with a window above a utility sink and built-in cabinetry on either side. The kitchen is open to the great room and features an island with bar seating. The great room has a vaulted ceiling that frames the fireplace and the rear porch with skylights is the perfect place to relax when the weather is nice. A dramatic tray ceiling tops the dining room. The master suite is elegant with a vaulted ceiling and the master bathroom enjoys a freestanding bathtub. A double-sink vanity and walk-in shower complete this space. Two additional bedrooms are available, along with a full bathroom, and a bonus room provides optional square footage for a recreational room or future expansion.

    I have been searching for a smaller sized house plan with a big kitchen! I also wanted windows on the back, as my lot has a pond view in the rear portion. I also wanted vaulted ceilings and a front porch. How did you all manage to read my mind? lol

    Love this layout! I agree with others that a bathroom upstairs is necessary. There’s also plenty of room up there to make easy access to a large floored storage area. The downstairs is great, I’d turn the rear porch into a sunroom.

      Hi Chris, this is a conceptual design but any plan that is added to our portfolio will have the option of a basement foundation. When we receive an order for a plan with an alternate basement foundation, we will make changes to the first floor to add the basement stairs.

    I really like this plan and am glad to see a smaller design in progress! One suggestion-it would be nice if the laundry could move to somehow open with a doorway thru to the master. Perhaps could swap the 2nd bathroom with the laundry and rework the master bath/closet area a little. Just a suggestion, I’m looking for a plan this size with that feature. This one is almost perfect!

    It looks like there should be a lot of space and support in the upstairs to build out a bathroom and maybe even another bedroom. I really like the downstairs configuration, fixing the upstairs would definitely put this design into top contention for me.

    Nice looking house with efficient use of floor space. Though many of my clients are skipping formal dining rooms, this area works well with the kitchen and great room layouts. This design and size should fit our market well.

    Lovely, compact floor plan. I love the way you make storage/ built in areas knit together in a “do- si – do” fashion. So clever! Also, minimal circulation space results in maximum living space. My husband would be looking for more garage/ workshop space, but I think we could rework this to be a 2 bed, 2 BA on the main floor with a guest suite upstairs, and still have an extended garage.
