Clapboard outlying wings, a bay window, dormers, and a balcony above
the entry are elegant counterpoints to this plan’s imposing brick
Inside the front door, a two-story center entrance hall opens on the
left and right into a formal living and dining room and at the far end
into the large kitchen. The kitchen, breakfast nook, and family room
form an open, flowing space that extends the width of the house. The
living room features a bay window and French doors into the family room.
The extended family room has a cathedral ceiling and a fireplace against
the far wall. In the L formed by the family room and the main house
sits a private rear deck. An attached mudroom wing with laundry area
offers a convenient rear entrance into the kitchen.
A main staircase with an open balustrade leads up to a second-floor
hall wide enough for furniture and open to the hall below. At the far
end, a balcony overlooks the front lawn. The four upstairs bedrooms,
all with their own walk-in closets, sit at the corners of the house.
From the master bedroom, a short hall leads past two closets and the
attic entrance to a sitting room with a view of the rear lawn, a huge
walk-in closet, and a master bathroom with dual vanities, a glass shower,
and a Jacuzzi-style bath.
The classic, two-story Colonial form conveys a timeless elegance, and
the Cheshire offers a second recessed entrance opening into the oversized
mudroom. Plans for this house have been carefully drawn and include
authentic details. The layout combines a smooth flow and an efficient
use of space. All of the rooms have large windows and will accommodate
optimal furniture arrangements.
You can order the stock house plan or configure it to meet your personal
specifications with the Original Home Plan Tool. The Plan Tool offers
many options, such as an extended master suite, bonus room, or a spare
bedroom above the garage. This house can expand to from 2 to 5 baths
and from 3 to 5 bedrooms. Other interior options include a back stair,
several master bath upgrades, and alternate laundry locations.
The first and second floor ceilings can be raised to 9 feet and the
main house can be lengthened by up to 4 feet. You may choose a 2 or
3 car garage and place the doors on the front or side of your home.
On the exterior, change the siding to clapboard, stucco, shingles, or
brick. Choose from many optional features including porches, roof styles,
and gables to create your own original design.
