House Plan on the Drawing Board – Plan #1333

Conceptual Plan- 1333

Front Elevation - Conceptual Design #1333
Here’s another conceptual plan! Please take a few minutes to give us your feedback!

Conceptual Plan 1333 derives from the Vandenberg plan #746-D, and is a versatile hillside walkout floor plan that transitions well into an empty-nester home. The addition of a residential elevator provides ease of access to the lower level, where secondary bedrooms with patio access are perfect guest suites. A mechanical area and extra storage have been added downstairs, and a spa patio provides luxury. At just under 3000 square feet, this Craftsman design is an idyllic retirement home plan.

    I love the breakfast room because I like a small table for kneading bread, looking at cookbooks, penciling in “do-it” lists, and appointments on calendars. And, it could be the home office. I love the laundry where it it because it has a window, the doors from garage, and to close off laundry room. That’s a big plus as a mud room, dogs coming back from the vet, and we still would have to drag clothing through the kitchen (which is an absolute “no-no.”) Double doors keep more mice out of the kitchen, too. I love the rest of the house plan! It really flows! I must have the basement as it gives so very much more solidarity to the structure; therefore, a finer investment. The elevator idea is so “right-on-target!” Gobs of baby-boomers I’ve talked with see that as the “defining moment” they will be able to retire in their own homes! Sincerely, I vote this one the most progressive home design I’ve seen, by far! Truly, “trans-generational!”

    I love this main floor. For my personal use I would:
    1. repurpose the breakfast area to make a large utility/craft studio since there is already a larger dining area open to the kitchen.
    2. Consider taking part of the garage storage for a pantry.

    For general sale, I would love to see a second half story option with a bonus room, 1-2 bedrooms, and a bathroom. That way one could keep the reature ceilings in the east side of the house but still have upstairs space for younger kids.

    Like the idea of a empty nester plan. Not so sure about the elevator though. Could leave the space though for future needs. Please consider double glass front doors to make the entry more grand. Also wondering the best way to make it under 1800 sq ft? Very nice plan!

    Please consider making a “family version” of this where there is a half 2nd story with 2 bedrooms and a bath for those that love the first floor layout but would not want young children in the basement and for geographical locations that do not count sub-terrain bedrooms as actual living space for re-sale purposes.

      Hi Sharon,
      This is a conceptual design and has not yet been selected for our portfolio. Depending on its popularity as a conceptual plan, we may eventually add it to be completed. If you are looking for something that is readily available, The Vandenberg may interest you. We also offer modification services so you can customize a plan to better fit your needs. If you would like assistance with a plan search contact customer service at 1-800-388-7580 or [email protected].

    This would be my dream home if there were only one eating area. Make the dining room the sole eating area, get rid of the breakfast room and screened porch, and have the garage on that wall. There are not enough plans with a front entry garage that is mostly flush with the rest of the house. Otherwise love the plan. Will be building within one year and hope this is final by then!!

      Hi Sally,

      Thank you for your thoughtful feedback! This plan will likely not be finalized in 2015 unless someone orders it in advance. If you are certain this is the plan you want to build this year, you can order it over the phone and we will put it into production! It would take approximately 14-16 weeks to complete the base plan, plus an additional 4-6 weeks to make additional modifications to it. 1-800-388-7580

      If you need your plans sooner, you may want to consider having the Vandenberg Plan #746-D modified to be more like this conceptual plan incorporating your breakfast room changes. This option would mean the plans would be complete in 4-6 weeks. Here’s a link to more information about our in-house modifications:

    Would love to see version of Vandenberg/somersby/rye croft plans without hillside walkout. Leaving two bedrooms on main level but adding bonus room for flexibility as third bedroom and bath. Looking for empty nester plan, leaving basement unfinished.
