7. Room for Guests
Square Feet: 1,992
If the last few designs were not your cup of tea, take a look at this colonial treasure. Unusual diamond-shaped rooms visually enlarge spaces and create dramatic sightlines. This innovative design provides an abundance of living area, flexible multi-purpose rooms, and exciting features.
The plan accommodates room for growing families and for guests. The unusual master bedroom is loaded with amenities: a double-stepped ceiling, luxurious bath, his and her closets, direct access to the porch, and expansive square footage. Two more bedrooms off the hallway share a full bath, or create the option to open the third bedroom to the foyer as a living room or library. A flexible guest room across the house provides privacy as well as a third full bath for visitors or a boomerang kid. Above the garage, find another 247 sq. feet of bonus space.
A beautiful diamond-shaped family room with a 19’-9’’ ceiling carves out a centralized gathering space. Here, the rear wall features a gas fireplace with an entertainment center above and an arched clerestory window that draws in natural light. French doors with transoms lead into a favorite space – the covered back porch with spa and kitchenette.
The kitchen offers plenty of work-space, a breakfast bar, and breakfast room overlooking the back porch. This new colonial plan also includes a formal dining room, accessible from the kitchen and family rooms.
