Our featured plans this week both showcase mountain styling with gables and vaulted ceilings facing rear views.
Home Design Quick Facts:
- 3 stories, including a finished walkout basement.
- Massive, open kitchen with two islands.
- Oversized walk-in pantry and utility room.
An angled courtyard entry and large bracketed dormer lend dramatic curb appeal to this gorgeous hillside cabin. The massive central great room divides the master suite from the public areas of the home.
The open island kitchen is a chef’s dream, and easily accesses a huge pantry, a utility room with plenty of workspace, and a bayed dining room with tray ceiling. A skylit screen porch with outdoor kitchen completes the main level.
Upstairs, two bedrooms share access to a huge 543 sq. ft. bonus room. The lower level has another bedroom tucked away – perfect for guests or an older child – and a rec room with wet bar and fireplace. An elevator makes navigating the three levels a breeze for older family members.
This home works for a large family, people who like to entertain and those who have in-laws or extended family staying with them. Indoors and out, this home offers all of the amenities you could want in a new home.
Home Design Quick Facts:
- Low maintenance exterior.
- Open concept living spaces.
- Laundry room convenient to all bedrooms.

This new Jasper Hill home is a vibrant hillside retreat!
Nautical decor and soft-hued colors transform this mountain home plan into a lakefront getaway. Step inside and immediately take in amazing rear views through the towering bay windows along the rear of the home. Pale blue walls with white trim work create a cheerful atmosphere that melds with the outdoors. The main level features an oversized great room, octagonal dining room, gourmet kitchen, bedroom/study and an fabulous owner’s suite with spectacular master bath.
The walkout basement has been modified to accommodate the dramatic slope of the lot, creating a massive rec room with volume ceilings. The downstairs bedrooms are spacious and enjoy views of the lake. Guests can make coffee in the full wet bar and take it to the covered patio to watch the sunrise.
The huge bonus room has closets and a full bathroom, and features custom bunk beds that play into the nautical theme – a dream for children or grandchildren!
