This country-flavored design, Plan HMAFAPW00730 from Homeplans.com, offers a lovely exterior and a family-friendly layout with surprising amenities.

The home provides 2,875 square feet of finished living space on two floors. A wraparound porch expands the living space into the outdoors.

Through the foyer, a study sits to the right; with the adjacent full bath, it can easily serve as a guest room.

The formal living room on the right could also do double duty as a media zone or den, especially if modified to have doors. Further back, the dining room opens to the covered porch so that you can enjoy views while eating.

The relaxed family room in back opens to the kitchen to form a casual living space. A snack bar serves three, while the breakfast nook enjoys lots of sunlight from surrounding windows. An island adds extra workspace in the kitchen, and skylights brighten the space.

Step out from the family room to the porch, which extends the entire width of the house and wraps around the sides, too.

The master suite forms a comfortable retreat with a bay window, dual walk-in closets, and a well-appointed bath that features a corner garden tub, separate shower and two sinks.

One of the three bedrooms upstairs has its own bath, while the other two share a hall bath with two sinks. A sitting loft completes the plan.
