An extensive wraparound porch and the repetition of gabled forms unify
the broad and varied elements of this elegant home.
Inside this porch, a classic entrance hall awaits, opening on the right
to a formal dining room and on the left to a living room with a bay
window. At the far end of the hall is the large kitchen, and to the
left of the kitchen, an extended family room with open space above,
a fireplace, and a view of the deck and rear lawn. The kitchen, breakfast
nook, and family room form an open, flowing space that extends the width
of the house. The garage offers a direct entrance into the kitchen,
convenient for carrying groceries in from the car.
A main staircase with an open balustrade leads up to a second floor
hall wide enough for furniture and open to the hall below. In addition
to its four bedrooms, the upstairs features a laundry room. The master
suite has a sumptuous walk-in closet; a master bathroom with a glass
shower, a Jacuzzi-size tub, and dual vanities; and past another walk-in
closet, a large sitting room under the eaves of the garage.
The classic, 2-story Colonial form conveys a timeless elegance, and
the Salisbury has a compact form that is easy to build, heat, and maintain.
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
or sitting room above the garage. This house can expand to from 2 to
3½ baths and from 3 to 4 bedrooms. Other interior options include
a choice of kitchen layouts, 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.
