    About This Plan

    This Modern house plan features an updated Craftsman inspired exterior with beautiful design elements consisting of warm woods, stone work and board and batten. There are double overhead shed dormers that add charm and visual interest to the simply constructed exterior. The stone work is adhered to a front feature wall, added to the supporting porch pillars and attached to the skirt of the home’s perimeter for appealing aesthetic significance. The warm overhead porch gable is purposeful in its use of offering protection from the weather while it also provides an abundance of space for relaxing and/or greeting family and friends into the home’s interior. Three bedrooms, two plus baths and an open floor plan are found in approximately 1,981 square feet of living space. While the plan’s width is in excess of 70’, the home’s depth is measurably smaller at 35’, great for a small depth lot. Nine foot ceiling heights are found on both floors and various vaulted rooms, along with the open layout, give the home a spacious and airy feel. The large front covered porch grants access into the open floor plan where a great room, dining room and kitchen are revealed. The great room features vaulted ceilings, a rear wall warming fireplace and double sliders leading onto the deck. The rear deck is a large space with plenty of room for relaxing, entertaining and hosting cookouts for family and friends. The laundry room and guest powder room are located nearby. The dining room is quite spacious and lies between the great room and kitchen for comfortable family dining. The grand kitchen features an enormous center island with loads of additional seating; there is a separate pantry and a built-in bench available as well. The double staircase separates the common rooms from the master suite for privacy and convenience. The master bedroom features vaulted ceilings and a rear wall of window views overlooking the back yard. An oversized attached walk-in master closet is situated at the rear of the master bath. The bath is highlighted with dual vanities, a glass shower, a free standing tub and a toilet area.

    The terrace level of the home offers two secondary bedrooms, a bath and optional expansion space. Bedroom two is comfortably large and features views overlooking the outdoor patio as well as a large amount of closet space. The third bedroom is slightly smaller with plentiful closet space and outdoor views to the patio. Both bedrooms also feature sliders onto the outdoor patio for easy access and enjoyment of the space. There is a hall linen closet and a shared hall bathroom which offers an extended vanity space, a toilet area and a tub/shower combination. The optional bonus space is quite large, measures 24’ x 29’ and could be utilized as a playroom for the children, a teen-ager’s lounge or a multi-purpose family room. This modern house plan features a great family layout, plenty of outdoor space and an attractive exterior.
