4. Room to Grow
Square Feet: 1,698
With its exterior stone masonry, vaulted ceilings, and country ranch charm, it seems no one told this 1,698 square foot plan it was meant to be small. And while fans of New Urbanism may want to send its 48’ wide elevation and stony privacy back to the country, outdoor lovers will rejoice in this design that sports a barbecue porch, lanai, columned front porch, and a screened breezeway to the optional garage.
Inside you’ll find spacious living areas swirling about a kitchen island with snack-bar seating. Take a casual meal in the kitchen’s breakfast nook, or take advantage of the ample indoor-outdoor areas on the backside of the house. Gather more formally in the dining room with windows overlooking the front porch, and enjoy sight-lines to the extended hearth and fireplace.
The master suite fits the home nicely, tucked into a private back corner and complete with porch access and walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms toward the front of the house share a jack and jill bathroom. Upstairs, get creative with the two large bonus rooms whose vaulted ceilings offer an extensive canvas.
The optional garage provides storage and functionality, as well as added privacy for the backyard. Enjoy your natural surroundings year round with a covered lanai and a second fireplace on the barbecue porch. Just take a look at the gorgeous back elevation whose columns, millwork, and French doors add to the allure – this baby’s got back.
