Plan Details

The wraparound porch echoes the hip roof over the central form in this elegant elevation, while the gabled garage makes for a satisfying contrast. A 2 story bay steps out slightly from the surrounding wall, drawing you toward the entry.

Inside, a two-story center hall opens on the left and right into a formal living and dining room and at the far end into a large kitchen. The kitchen, breakfast nook, and family room form an open, flowing space that extends the width of the house. French doors separate the living and family rooms, and a bay window in the living room looks out on the porch. A fireplace sits against the far wall of the family room, whose three windows face the deck and the back lawn. 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, with a balcony overlooking the front lawn. At one end of the hall are three bedrooms which share a generous hall bath. At the other is the master bedroom. Past a pair of walk-in closets, the master bath features dual vanities, a glass shower, and a platform tub. From the mudroom, a private staircase leads to a huge fifth bedroom, which sits over the garage and has its own bathroom and walk-in closet.

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.
