Make the most of a basement foundation with these four plans, each featuring a fun and functional lower level with bedrooms, rec rooms, and more. Buyers will love the lifestyle flexibility offered by having more lodging and outdoor living space.

Semi-Independent Quarters Downstairs

Families with older children or empty nesters with frequent visitors will appreciate the impressive amenities on the lower level: a wet bar, rec room, and wine cellar, along with extensive patio space. Upstairs, the master suite enjoys convenient proximity to the main living spaces, including a den with built-in shelves. A wide kitchen island looks out to the vaulted great room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.


Unfussy Layout, Lots of Bedrooms

This 46-foot-wide home features a simple, open layout on two levels. The main floor holds two bedrooms and the great room, along with the island kitchen and the dining nook. Downstairs, three more bedrooms border the central rec room, with a wet bar providing a great place to make a snack. Outdoor living on both levels maximizes a view lot.

Options to Expand

The optional basement foundation of this home provides a rec room, media room, bedroom suite, exercise room, and wet bar. Even without all that, this home’s pretty impressive. This charming exterior appointed with stone, half-timbering, and shuttered arched windows offers a warm welcome. A study is located to the left of the foyer.  The extra-spacious kitchen opens to the great room and a side covered porch. A family coming in from the garage is greeted by the mudroom, with lockers awaiting muddy boots and jackets. The master is in the rear and features a tray ceiling, bay window, and well-appointed bathroom. Two additional bedrooms share a bathroom and laundry room at the front of the home.

Work from Home

Here’s a family home from Visbeen Architects with lots of room for a busy family. Thoughtful details include tucked-in desk space by the stairs, a wet bar to serve the optional lower level (great for guests or a live-in relative), and plenty of seating at the kitchen’s island. The master suite features a large walk-in closet, tub with a view, separate shower, and two sinks. Two additional bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath. Down the hall, the office makes a great study or hobby room, while another on the first level has windows on two walls for natural light while working. Don’t miss the screened porch and handy mudroom. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
