Give ‘em what they really want: more space in the kitchen and owner’s retreat. These plans do away with formal zones, concentrating square footage instead in the high-impact areas of the home where buyers will appreciate it most.

Big Shower

FP_01

Here's a plan with room where it matters: in the super-open great room and the first-floor master suite. Don't miss the kitchen's island with seating, perfect for relaxed meals. In the master suite, a large shower, tub, and two sinks create a comfortable retreat. Upstairs, two additional bedrooms use a full hall bath with another big shower. A bonus space over the garage offers room to expand. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Extra-Wide Snack Bar

This attractive Craftsman home achieves a woodsy vibe with a luxurious interior. A decorative ceiling treatment crowns the main living area, where a wide snack bar serves up meals from the open kitchen. The library near the front can easily serve as a third bedroom with an adjacent full bath. The master suite takes up the left side and includes a private foyer, large walk-in closet, and separate garden tub and shower. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Private Porch with Fireplace

The great room soars in this bright home with a two-story ceiling, made cozy by a pronounced fireplace. Storage near the garage entrance is convenient to the gourmet island kitchen, which is lit by the bayed breakfast area. A compact home office is visually expanded with patio access. For true splendor, the bayed master suite reigns; a private hearth-warmed patio, exceptional bath and naturally lit walk-in closet will pamper and soothe. Two upper-level bedrooms share a full bath, and the third enjoys a private bath. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
