Home plan

Surprising amenities and special touches make this 2,000-square-foot home, Plan HMAFAPW00921 from Homeplans.com, a lovely choice.

Bay windows dress up several rooms, including the front bedroom, the master bedroom in back, and the dining room.

Enter through the covered front porch into the foyer. To the right, the two secondary bedrooms share a full bath that has two sinks to speed up morning routines.

Ahead and to the right, the formal living room opens to a small side porch. For greater flexibility, or to turn this space into a home office, consider modifying the room so that it can be closed off with doors.

Further in, the heart of the home consists of the large family room, the open U-shaped kitchen with a snack bar, and the dining room with a niche for special china.

The master suite offers access to the rear covered patio, and a well-equipped bath with a garden tub and large shower. A walk-in closet is a thoughtful addition.
