Home Plan

Country living is the focus of this charming design, Plan HMAFAPW00637 from Homeplans.com.

The design features 1,835 square feet of living space on one level. A full basement allows for future expansion that will double the space.

A cozy front porch leads to the foyer with the bedrooms on the right and the living spaces straight ahead.

From the windowed front-facing breakfast room, enter the efficient kitchen with its large pantry, snack-bar pass-through to the gathering room, and passage to the dining room. A planning desk near the laundry room provides a perfect place to drop your keys and charge your phone on the way in from the garage.

The gathering room and dining room feature sloped ceilings, a fireplace and access to the rear terrace.

Terrace access also is available from the master bedroom with its sloped ceiling and a master bath that includes a whirlpool tub, a separate shower and a vanity area in addition to two sinks.

A study at the front of the house can be converted into a third bedroom. Thoughtful details include linen closets by the bedrooms, built-in shelves in the hallway to the gathering room, and extra storage space in the garage.
