Porches aren’t just stylish; they’re also green. Instead of sitting in conditioned space, buyers are encouraged to relax outside. And unlike some other energy-saving features, this one brings impressive curb appeal.
A metal roof covers the wide front porch and porch columns of this charming country home. Yet it offers much more than just great style: this floor plan is designed for the busy lifestyles of families today. The large great room offers a gas log fireplace, a 10-foot ceiling, and a perfect place to entertain guests. The well-equipped kitchen boasts a raised bar, a walk-in pantry, and easy access to the neighboring dining room. In the master suite, buyers will love the tray ceiling, large walk-in closet, dual lavatories, jet tub, separate shower, and enclosed toilet.
Full of Surprises
Though this plan isn't particularly large —1,891 square feet, to be exact—it boasts a wraparound porch, three garage bays, an open kitchen with a snack-bar island, and much more. Buyer will love the master suite's large walk-in closet and the optional game room upstairs.
Slim Plan, Wide Appeal
With its very open layout that focuses on the kitchen and relaxed living room, combined with a rear-entry garage, this plan maximizes a narrow lot. The large kitchen island and a fireplace in the living room set the stage for simple, warm entertaining. Two bedrooms rest on the first floor, including the master suite with its separate tub and shower. Two more bedrooms upstairs share a generous bathroom.
The lasting popularity of this country plan is no doubt owed to its lovely front elevation, which displays a wide porch. The vaulted ceiling in the great room enhances the wall of windows with backyard views. An efficient kitchen serves the bayed breakfast area. The secluded master suite offers a walk-in closet and a five-piece bath; on the other side of the home, two family bedrooms share a full bath. Upstairs, an optional fourth bedroom is available for guests or in-laws and provides access to a large recreation room.
