After entering the foyer from the gracious entry porch, there is a stairwell to the right and a small study/office to the left. Straight ahead, an opening leads to a living room that is open to the kitchen and the dining room. A kitchen island provides additional working space, and divides the kitchen from the living room. The dining room is light–filled from two walls of windows, and has an opening that leads to a half bath, a mudroom, and the rear covered porch.

The upper floor has a master suite, and two bedrooms that share a full bath. The master bedroom has windows that look out to the rear, and the master bath has room for both a tub and a separate shower.

If you choose to build the basement, there is an open family room space, a fourth bedroom, another full bath, and a utility room.

These plans also come with drawings for a detached two–car garage.
