Want an easy way to wow potential buyers? Two-way fireplaces will do the job. They’re also a smart and streamlined plan for warming up multiple rooms. These four plans feature a variety of toasty layouts.

Update of a Best-Seller

Does this plan look familiar? It’s a newer, slightly different version of the bestselling home from Builder House Plans. The floor plan (which subs the original plan’s media room for a garage workshop) fits a remarkable number of amenities into 1,848 square feet. A see-through fireplace at the center of the home warms the family room and dining room. The rear lanai and barbecue porch is complete with an outdoor fireplace. A bonus room gives buyers space to expand later. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Huge Bonus Level

Spacious, dramatic, and flexible, this super-open country plan fits a variety of lifestyles. The huge country kitchen opens to both the family and dining rooms, with a two-sided fireplace in the middle. The private master suite includes a tray ceiling, a sitting area, two walk-in closets, and an exquisite bath, as well as deck access. Bedrooms two and three feature walk-in closets and individual baths. An optional bonus level opens up a whole new world of living space, with two additional bedrooms and a variety of entertainment areas. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Splendid and Cozy Master Suite

The French-inspired facade hints at the elegant amenities found inside. The first-floor master suite is a private retreat for the homeowner, complete with a bay window and a see-through fireplace that warms both the corner bathtub and the spacious bedroom. Another two-way fireplace adds ambiance to the family room and gallery, with the dining room nearby. The spacious kitchen features a substantial island. French doors access the loggia, where a fireplace and summer kitchen invite alfresco dining. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Options for the Buyer

Buyers will be delighted with the luxurious touches inside this 1,995-square-foot home. A two-sided fireplace warms both the master bedroom and the family room. Also in the master suite, a spacious shower (choose your configuration), dual sinks, and large closet create a comfortable retreat. The kitchen's island offers plenty of room for casual seating. A flex room near the front would make a good home office. Upstairs, two more bedrooms share a bathroom, with the option to add another suite. Don't miss the handy drop zone on the way in from the garage. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
