Neighbors and passersby will compliment you on your lovely Traditional House Plan with its Craftsman details. Multicolored brick and cedar shingle siding dresses up the exterior. An eyebrow window is front and center to add a little bit of storybook appeal, and its shape echoes the arched window on the garage side. This ranch home design features a nostalgic front porch, which promotes relaxation and conversation.
Look around the rear elevation where the angled arrangement of the home appears to embrace the outside attractions. Recline on a chair by the outdoor fireplace or take a dip in your new pool if it’s on your wish list.
Walk inside to note the formal dining room on the left where you will host elegant dinners with ease. A pass-through door to the kitchen is where you will look up to see Dad carry in the turkey on a silver platter come Thanksgiving Day.
Your kitchen is separated from the rest of the living space to preserve a traditional arrangement that sets it apart from most modern homes today. Your family will gather around the island for breakfast because there is seating enough for six!
While not open to the living room, the kitchen is open to the family room. Snuggle on the couch close to the fireplace and enjoy playing board games, or pop some popcorn to watch a movie together during a restful evening.
When you are ready to entertain, the fireplace adds ambiance to the living room, and sliding glass doors open to the breezy veranda of this lakefront house plan.
The quiet master suite is well-appointed and dreamy making it an ideal retirement house plan. Soak your cares away by relaxing in the large garden tub. The sitting room is a bright and sunny area where you can enjoy a book while keeping an eye on the kids who are playing in the back yard.
Two secondary bedrooms are unusual in that they are not side-by-side. This is an unrivaled feature which makes it the ideal multi-generational home design. Each bedroom has a walk-in-closet, and bedroom 2 has a private bathroom which makes it a great option for guests.
Down the hall is a large laundry room, and the staircase leads up to the bonus room and down to the basement if you choose that option.
The bonus room can be finished with a kitchenette, closet and bathroom. This will be perfect for your teenager, live-in grandparent, or even a tenant. Imagine the income and re-sale potential that such a space will add to your home. Leave the space unfinished to save money on the original construction, and then finish the space when time and budget allows in the future.
The basement is a blank canvas of potential. Aside from storage, you may want to finish the space with a billiards room, theater, gym or anything else that has always been on your house-hunting wish list!
