Designed to capture views all around, this one-of-a-kind plan from Visbeen Architects provides an open layout and room to expand on the lower level. The compact 34-foot width makes it a perfect fit for a narrow lot. On the main floor, a network of smart storage and planning spaces keeps a household organized. The kitchen's large island seats four and opens to the living room, where a fireplace creates cozy evenings. A screened outdoor living area lets owners enjoy the view in all kinds of weather. On the second level, the second bedroom includes a sitting room that gives extra privacy and space to an older child or guest. The lower level can hold two bedrooms, relaxed living space, a bar, and more. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Sleek, sophisticated, and filled with light, this contemporary home is perfect for a modern family. With its narrow footprint, the plan fits nicely into a tight city lot. The walled courtyard creates a private outdoor living area that flows into the flexible dining room. Indoors, the living room combines with the kitchen to form a big, casual gathering space. A covered deck provides a shady spot to sit outside. Also on this level, bedroom 2 serves as a versatile guest suite or office, with a full bathroom just steps away. Three more bedrooms sit upstairs. In the luxurious master suite, you'll find a deluxe shower, two sinks, and two walk-in closets. Other thoughtful touches in the home include the office nook downstairs and an abundance of closets.

Study Can Become Fourth Bedroom

The versatile layout inside this charming bungalow makes it a great choice for many different living situations. The open plan and first-floor master suite add convenience for the home owners. Upstairs, two bedrooms, a hall bath, and a massive bonus area that can be converted into a rec room are perfect for family or visiting friends. A study/fourth bedroom sits on the main level, along with another welcome feature: a screened side porch just off the great room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.


Game Room Downstairs

Ideal for a compact lot, this plan features a finished walkout basement with a game room, two bedrooms, and a bathroom. On the main floor, the master suite opens to the back porch. A guest suite near the front also makes a secluded home office. The open layout of the main gathering spaces encourages relaxed living around the island kitchen and in the vaulted great room. Extra storage in the garage will be a welcome detail. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
