Description

This cozy home has an entry porch that wraps around one corner, and a screened porch at the rear – ideal for those who enjoy outdoor living. Wood siding graces the exterior, which also features elegant wood columns, and wood shutters at the windows. These plans include drawings for a detached single–car garage.

The front porch wraps around the left corner – made wider and deeper at the corner itself – providing additional outdoor living space and views. After entering the house, there's a short hallway on the right leading to the stairs, a bedroom, and a full bath. On the left, there's an office space that can be sealed off from the house by closing a pair of sliding doors. This room can be accessed from the wrap around front porch, making it a perfect home office that has visiting clients.

The living areas at the rear are all open to each other, allowing a flexible floor layout. The central great room has windows along the rear wall, and a portion of the back wall opens up to a vaulted ceiling, creating a natural sunroom. A door from this vaulted space – which is right next to the kitchen – opens onto a screened porch that also accesses the back yard. A pair of structural columns delineates the great room space from the dining room, which also has a pair of doors that walk out to the entry porch. The kitchen features a unique curved bay window that looks out to the screened porch, with a center pair of windows that open up for ventilation. A counter with a sink faces the great room, and a center island provides additional workspace. An opening from the kitchen leads to a mudroom that has room for a pantry and a second refrigerator (or freezer). A door in the mudroom accesses the side porch. The main level has 10' ceilings throughout.

The stairs to the upper level lead to a loft that wraps around the stairs, leading to a lovely sitting room with a railing that looks down to a portion of the great room below. The master bedroom features two separate walk–in closets, and the master bath includes a room with a large tub and two vanity sinks, and a door to a separate room with a toilet and a shower. There is another bedroom on this floor, with a walk–in closet and a full bath, and both a hobby room and a conveniently located laundry room.

An attic space above provides additional storage space if needed.
