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.

The Tristan Home Plan 1311
Choose a House Plan That Captures the View
The view is a major factor to consider when mulling lake house ideas. Hillside walkout designs are great for sloping lots and often will feature large windows are doors oriented to take advantage of a view. Typically these designs offer rear views, featuring windows — often with a sliding glass door for access to a porch or patio — at the rear of the home.
This simple design offers just the right amount of curb-appeal with board-and-batten accented gables and a discerning usage of metal roofing. The open floor plan showcases the dining room with a tray ceiling and a low built-in bookshelf. The kitchen features a breakfast counter for additional bar seating and opens to a screened porch with skylights. Living is extended outdoors with a side porch and a rear deck that are connected by an expansive patio. The utility room has its own access door and a laundry sink provides easy clean-up after yard work. The master suite is generous with a massive walk-in closet, a double sink vanity, and a spacious shower. A bedroom and bedroom/study share a full bathroom with linen closet. Storage options include a garage storage closet, a pantry and a coat closet.
