Filled with practical amenities like walk-in closets, well-placed grocery storage, and even a pet-friendly mudroom (where a separate entrance makes it easy to exit for a walk and rinse paws upon returning), this layout includes all the modern must-haves. The kitchen's spacious island anchors the main living areas, with a deck and covered porch within reach for outdoor entertaining. Located on this level (making it easier to age in place), the master suite features a large walk-in shower. The study can serve as a guest suite. Two more bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath and access to the bonus space upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

With an easy-to-get-around layout on one level, this plan can transition nicely from a family home to an empty nest. From the foyer, a clear sightline leads your gaze through the vaulted great room and out to the back porch. A vaulted keeping room provides a cozy fireplace next to the breakfast area and open kitchen. The master suite maintains a great connection with the outdoors, opening to the porch from the bedroom and providing a bumped-out tub for an immersive bathing experience. Don't miss the walk-in closet. An optional bonus room offer a huge space to expand upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

A see-through fireplace provides a memorable focal point between the grand room and the vaulted keeping room, where light streams in from two walls of windows. The impressive kitchen offers a large snack bar island, a walk-in pantry, and a butler's pantry that passes through to the dining room. Buyers can charge their phones in the nearby computer nook. Upstairs, all four bedrooms access the handy laundry room and an additional computer nook. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Ideal for buyers with older children, this layout features an easy-to-reach master suite on the first level that also makes it simpler to age in place. Two secondary bedrooms upstairs share a hall bath that includes two sinks, so no one has to wait to brush teeth. A bonus room up here could become a playroom, art studio, or perhaps even a homeschooling space. Back downstairs, the kitchen's configuration with the cooktop at the island encourages conversation with those seated at the bar. A vaulted screened porch leads to a deck for outdoor fun.
