Here’s the cream of the new-plan crop. What do they have in common? Well-thought amenities that families will appreciate, such as mudrooms, e-spaces, and even a pet corner.

Everyday Conveniences

The details in this plan just make sense: the master suite’s walk-in closet opens directly to the laundry room; a bench greets family members on the way in from the garage; and the computer nook sits near enough to the kitchen to charge phones within reach but out of sight. Of course, buyers will also love the open layout and beautiful stone-and-shingle exterior. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Flexible Design

The wraparound porch on this graceful design nicely attracts attention away from the side-loading garage. Highlights of the layout inside include cubbies and a bench in the mudroom, and a wide angled island in the kitchen. A large bonus room upstairs opens up all kinds of possibilities, like a home theater or gym. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Natural Beauty

Stunning stone and impressive trusses create a memorable exterior. Inside, the great room is large enough for any gathering, while a fireplace adds ambiance. Sliding doors open to a rear porch. The snack bar offers room for many people to sit and enjoy a casual meal. On the left, the secluded master suite boasts many amenities, including a bayed sitting area. A home center near the garage offers laundry facilities and a pet corner. Two more bedrooms enjoy walk-in closets and a shared, compartmentalized bath.

Modern Masterpiece

This new plan is sure to become a favorite. Take a look at the kitchen, where a big, curving island provides casual seating. The screen porch in back is accessed via both the great room and the master suite, which enjoys a window seat, walk-in closet, and two sinks in the bathroom. A guest suite/study rests down here, with two more bedrooms and two bonus spaces upstairs. Kids will love the laundry chute. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
