It's the little things that matter in these new home plans. Standout details here include well-placed closets, benches where you need them, and strategic hallways that buffer bedrooms from public view. Best of all, they occupy that sweet spot of 2,000-2,500 square feet.

Compact Craftsman with Pocket Office

With compact dimensions of just 35' x 55', this attractive home is an eye-catching choice for a smallish lot. The remarkably open layout presents no barriers between the island kitchen, the informal dining room, and the great room. A pocket office near the front receives light from windows on two sides. Conveniently located on this level, the master suite skips the tub in favor of a large shower. Upstairs, three more bedrooms each include a walk-in closet and easy access to the loft. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Well-Managed Mudroom

The striking front porch sets the tone for a warm welcome. Inside, the large great room is the focal point of the plan with a gas fireplace, entertainment alcove, and view to the rear covered porch and yard. The kitchen, complete with a five-foot island, double ovens, and a pantry, flows directly into the great room. A columned entry leads to the dining room, which is perfect for family gatherings or more formal affairs. The ultra-organized mudroom gives buyers a place for everything: cubbies for backpacks, a pocket office for mail, and a closet for coats. At the end of the day, owners will love relaxing in the luxurious and private master suite, where they'll find a sitting area and porch access, plus a deluxe bath that includes a whirlpool tub, a separate shower, and double sinks. Three additional bedrooms are located on the upper level. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
