Country house plan chp-29895 is embellished with a fanlight window on the dormer, decorative sidelights to match the window in the front door and delicate white balusters for the porch railing. Attractive white lattice skirting allows air to circulate under the house and keeps the critters away. Planters filled with bright yellow flowers really pop with the pale exterior paint that was chosen for this completed design.
The total living area, which is heated and air conditioned space, is 2083 square feet, but we can bet that you will take advantage of the covered porch during good weather. It measures 8 feet deep and 52 feet across the font of the house. Wrapping half way around both sides, 588 square feet gives you more than enough room for an outdoor sitting area with a porch swing or two. The romantic will imagine a first kiss at the door as seen in old movies, and the loving father might enjoy the humor of polishing his rifle while his daughter leaves on her first date.
From the foyer, you may enter the living room to your right under an arched passageway that is lined with columns. Across the room is a stone fireplace stretching all the way to the ceiling.
Family members might use a more casual entrance from the garage or side porch- both lead to a mud room. The powder room doubles as a utility room with convenient laundry closet.
The family room, kitchen and breakfast nook share an informal space at the back of the house. Glossy wide-plank pine floors and a denim couch invite you to sprawl in front of the flat screen after a long day or head out to the optional back deck to grill a family dinner. A lovely view of the back yard can be enjoyed through the bay window, and this space is perfect for a small breakfast table. Simple cabinetry of the kitchen is dressed up with marble counters and a solid rustic island. Display antiques or collectibles over the eating bar in the glass front cabinets.
All three bedrooms are located upstairs, and family members are greeted by a window seat and built-in bookshelves at the top of the staircase. Click here to see the floor plans and additional interior photographs.
Popular home plan chp-27613 is what we choose to call an “Elegant Southern Country” style. This 1-½ story home is a simple Southern design but becomes irresistible with its full wrap around porch and symmetrical dormers. If you can bear to leave the delightful porch for a while to go inside, you’ll find a somewhat contemporary design with lively angles, room brightening clerestory windows and a spacious open floor plan.
This is a “master on main level” floor plan, giving mom and dad the whole downstairs to themselves after the little ones settle down for the night. Included in the master suite is a door to the back screened porch so the couple can listen to crickets chirping in the evening while also enjoying protection from those pesky mosquitoes. Sneaking outside with a glass of wine or two is all the more fun with a private exit. Preparing to go out is convenient and comfortable with the layout of the master bathroom with its double vanity, large shower, whirlpool tub, private toilet area and a walk-in closet that measures almost 9′ x 9′!
Daytime chores are made easy as the laundry room is right outside the master bedroom. Don’t worry about carrying heavy baskets downstairs- a special convenience is the laundry chute just outside bedroom 2. Though tossing it down the chute is delightful for the kids, getting it back upstairs is a challenge that we must leave to your discretion.
The open family room shares a flow of space with the breakfast area which is lined with windows and has a door to the deck. This casual space is preferred by close-knit families as those in the kitchen have only to pass the dishes over the counter to enjoy meal times with the family or form an assembly line out to the deck for outdoor dining. Formal dining room, powder room and coat closet are located front and center for the guests.
Upstairs are two sizable bedrooms and a loft. Bedroom number 2 has a walk-in closet with a pass-through to attic storage and built-in bookcase. Bedroom number 3 has a built-in desk and bookshelves.
The ceilings on the main level are 9’ except for the clerestory areas above the master bedroom, family room, eating area and dining area which rise to approximately 18’. Upstairs ceilings are 8’. This southern house plan is one of our best selling home plans.
