This Craftsman house plan has a sincere, welcoming exterior design highlighted by white board and batten siding contrasted with rich, golden wood garage doors and matching timber columns framing the front porch. The entry porch is also accented with cool, gray stone offering an attractive invitation to enter the home. Two dormers above the main living area and the garage space break up the roofline for a cozy, rustic design. The front-entry garage details two bays for the storage of two vehicles. Inside, the garage offers a storage closet big enough for storing tools, equipment, and sports gear, as well as featuring a pedestrian door and access to the mudroom/ kid’s nook. Completing the exterior is the grilling porch located at the rear of the home. This cookout space will make summer grilling a comfortable breeze with extra space for sitting and enjoying the outdoors.
Walking up the wood steps to the covered entry porch, the front door grants entry into a small foyer. The foyer is brightened by the above transom windows while granting entrance into the vaulted great room. This cozy space showcases a spacious gathering place with great windows facing the front property, transom windows, and a warming fireplace made-up of stone. The adjoining dining room is wonderful for hosting big dinner parties or quiet, intimate time with loved ones. The configuration of these two rooms allows for a seamless flow between entertaining in the great room and the dining room.
The dining space flows into the kitchen which offers generous counter space in an L-shaped design and a prep island allowing for more cook space and storage. Additional seating is available at the high-low bar for up to four guests. The rear of the kitchen features a cozy breakfast room with access to the outdoor grilling porch and open to the mudroom. The mudroom features a kid’s nook for art projects, homework, or any special activity. A bench seat with hanging space gives everyone an opportunity to ditch dirty boots and coats before making their way through the home. Opposite the kitchen is the laundry room and half bathroom.
Valuing the homeowners’ need for privacy, the master suite is located on the main floor, away from the second-floor bedrooms. This enclosed space features a tray ceiling with windows on all sides of the room, a large walk-in closet, and the master bathroom. The 5-fixture bathroom features a dual sink vanity, a 6’ soaking tub resting beneath a side-facing privacy window, a large enclosed shower with a built-in shower seat, and an enclosed toilet for added privacy. The second-floor houses two more bedrooms with a shared hall bathroom and an optional bonus room. This generously spacious area can function as a game room, a library, or a home theater. The bonus room has an almost limitless ability to fill your lifestyle need.
This cozy, rustic Craftsman house plan has three bedrooms, two-plus bathrooms with approximately 1,986 square feet of living space, making it ideal for newlyweds, new families, and aging in place.
