Check out this new narrow-lot conceptual design, and give us your feedback in the comments!
Conceptual Design #1361 has a Charleston style exterior with two levels of porches lined with columns. This design is narrow with a rear-entry garage on the basement level, ideal for Traditional Neighborhood Developments.
The two-story great room is open to the curved balcony above, and is set apart from the dining room by a trio of columns and built-in shelves framing the dining room window. The kitchen is surrounded by casual living spaces: An intimate keeping room with a fireplace, window seats, and cathedral ceiling, and a breakfast room with open e-space. A home elevator runs between the main floor and the lower level, making it a breeze to carry in groceries. The master bedroom has dual walk-in closets and a private porch/balcony at the rear of the home.
Two bedrooms upstairs enjoy access to the loft, covered porch, and massive bonus room.

Porches and patios offer a great deal of flexibility, and an outdoor kitchen can range anywhere from a small grill with cabinets and counters nearby, to full chef-quality arrangements with refrigerators, warming drawers, and more.
