Sometimes buyers need a lot of bedrooms but not the costs of a large luxury home. These plans deliver lots of sleeping space, great gathering rooms, smart details, and surprisingly modest square footages.

Space for Everyone

This appealing traditional home is ready for a crowd: on the first floor, the large kitchen and generous family room are joined by a guest suite (or fifth family bedroom) and the living room. Upstairs, four more bedrooms easily access the laundry room. Two sinks add efficiency to the hall bath, while the master suite offers a luxurious haven.

Craftsman Looks, Casual Living

This charming Craftsman design by Visbeen Associates fits especially well into an established city neighborhood but is at home anywhere. Dramatic columns flank the entryway. The screened porch take its cues from the past, but the open kitchen and hearth room reflect today's casual lifestyles. Upstairs rests the master suite with its spacious bedroom and walk-in closets, as well as four additional family bedrooms. The lower level can be finished to hold a variety of family entertainment areas and another bedroom. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

5 Beds, 3 Baths, 1,648 Sq. Ft.

With exceptionally smart planning, this 1,648-square-foot home fits in five bedrooms, three baths, a roomy living and dining area, a kitchen with an eating bar, and a spacious master suite with amenities. Shifting the fireplace to a side wall allows great views from the foyer to the backyard. The classic brick exterior is a versatile choice that would fit right in with many established neighborhoods.

Memory Maker

Locating the garage at the rear of the plan allows this spacious cottage to put its best face forward, especially on a narrow lot. The front porch opens to an informal layout in which living room, dining room, and kitchen flow into one another. A fireplace and French doors to the front porch make the living room a friendly space in any season. Three bedrooms are arranged along the left side of the plan, with two additional bedrooms and recreational space upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
