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.
