This charming Farmhouse Style House Plan 82560 has everything you’re looking for and more. This home plan gives you just 2,294 square feet of living space complete with 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths.

If contrast is what you are looking for, then the outside of this home is sure to wow you and anyone passing by. The exterior has crisp white-board and batten siding and rich black shutters. The home and porch are wrapped in a stone skirt that adds some diversity to an otherwise plain white farmhouse.

Before entering the home, you land on an 8-foot covered porch with a charming railing that wraps around. This picturesque area would be perfect for two rocking chairs and some porch plants.

If the outside has you saying wow, wait until you see the interior. As you enter the home, you find yourself in the foyer. This space features high ceilings that give it a lovely airy feeling. On the left side of the foyer is a well-sized dining room. This space features large windows that overlook the front of the home and give you a view of the beautiful covered porch.

From the dining room, you have easy access to the kitchen leading into the open floor plan.

As you pass through the dining area, there is a walk-in pantry perfect for storing excess groceries or cleaning supplies. Once in the kitchen, you find yourself in an open floor plan that begins in the kitchen and flows over the breakfast room and the great room.

The great room features a vaulted ceiling and warm fireplace. On the rear wall of the breakfast room is easy to access to the rear grilling porch.

The kitchen features a walk-in pantry that is so big that it has its own window. In the kitchen is a prep island, with a high low bar complete with seating for four. If this area is not large enough, there is a breakfast room space that has stunning windows that overlook the rear grilling porch and back yard.

On the right side of the plan, you will find bedrooms 2, 3 and 4. Each bedroom has a window that faces the rear, side, and front of the home, respectively, and has easy access to the bathroom and linen closet. For this bathroom, it comes finished with a jack and Jill sink and tub.

On the opposite side of the plan you will find the master suite. The master bedroom has easy access to the grilling porch, laundry room, and master bath. The master bath gives you a double vanity, a freestanding tub, and a corner glass shower. The walk-in closet has ample storage space and opens up to the laundry room which is convenient if you change and want to drop dirty clothes directly into the washing machine.

If you park your car in the garage after a long day at work, the first thing you want to do when you walk in through the side door is drop your purse and or book bags. In this section, you will see a bench with a hanging option perfect for just that.

Also direct beside the hanging bench area is a bathroom for that emergency “go before you go” moment.

4 Bedroom Contemporary Craftsman Style House Plan With Covered Patio

Craftsman Contemporary House Plan 76419 | Total Living Area: 2050 SQ FT | Bedrooms: 4 | Bathrooms: 2.5 | Garage Bays: 2 | Dimensions: 44′ Wide x 38′ Deep

Wood pillars, stone siding and a steel roof give this home a uniquely modern/rustic feel. Stone bases anchor the tapered columns on the porch, and we love the unique triple window accent by the front door.

In the spacious entrance foyer you can drop off your bags in the coat closet. Notice the corner space by the window: here you can make use of the sunshine and stand a tall house plant to add a bit of natural décor.

Access to the open living area is through a set of double French doors. Not only is the foyer arrangement stylish, but it’s also a practical way of blocking the draft on a cold winter night when you return home.

From here, you can greet family members who are gathered on the plush couch enjoying a bowl of popcorn and a movie. A beautiful fireplace is the heart of the living space, and you can just picture Christmas stockings hanging from the mantle.

Abundant windows overlook a large, 24′ x 10′ covered patio in the back. Right now, you have the perfect view of the sunset whether you remain inside the warmth of the house or venture outside with a mug of hot chocolate.

The dining table seats 8 and spatially splits the family room from the well appointed kitchen with large kitchen island. This L-shaped kitchen is a blank canvas waiting for you to choose your favorite cabinets, counter top, and appliances.

Tucked in behind the kitchen is a laundry room, discreet powder room, and another coat closet. Built ins and direct access to the garage add to the practical features of this home.

Upstairs, the 4 bedrooms include a master suite with a large walk-in closet. Many new home designs tend to overdo the bathroom, but the minimalist will appreciate the simple design found here. Everything you need is behind the space-saving pocket door: shower, single vanity and toilet.

The other 3 bedrooms share a second full bathroom. This bathroom, however, is designed to accommodate three kids and all of their accessories. It boasts a double vanity, pedestal bath and large shower enclosure.

The double garage has two doors with windows above each to let in an abundance of natural light.

An unfinished basement and other foundation options are available for this home.

3 Bedroom Craftsman Style House Plan With Outdoor Fireplace

Craftsman House Plan 81204 | Total Living Area: 2233 SQ FT | Bedrooms: 3 | Bathrooms: 2.5 | Garage Bays: 2 | Dimensions: 84’4 W x 69’10 D

With a two-car garage angling off to the left, the curved façade seems to embrace the visitor.

A door next to the garage acts as an informal entrance; under a covered porch with two beautiful gables sits the front door. Entering here, you find yourself in a lovely foyer with eleven foot ceilings.

Walking forward, you enter the vaulted great room, which flows out, through a set of double doors, to the vaulted outdoor living room.

A vision enters your mind of a late summer shindig, friends gathering around cozy fires crackling in the fireplaces here, fending off the first hints of winter chill. Both the great room and the outdoor living room boast a fireplace.

The great room also has a built in media center. The rest of the home radiates off this stunning shared living space.

Walking in a clockwise pattern from the foyer, the main floor includes an office with a window seat looking over the front porch, two bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bathroom in between, the outdoor living room, the open dining room and kitchen, and in the back corner, the master bedroom.

Wandering back to the entry foyer, you see a hall off to the left. This contains a half bath, the utility room with its washer and dryer, stairs to the upper story, and a door to the garage.
