One-story homes are a versatile and practical option for many buyers, but it’s hard to beat two-story designs for sheer impressiveness. Why not offer a home with the best of both? These single-story plans combine big curb appeal with smart layouts that make the most of space.

Impressive Exterior, Open Layout

This casual yet luxurious new plan is a terrific choice for empty nesters or anyone who loves the look of a two-story without the hassle of stairs. The master suite is both luxurious and practical, with direct access to the laundry room.  The second bedroom is nearby, a good layout for families with a young child. An open layout ensures excellent flow throughout the great room, dining area, and kitchen. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Modern Family

Inside this cool contemporary home, there's a smart one-story layout that makes great use of space and has some surprising amenities.  Each of the three bedrooms gets its own bathroom and walk-in closet, and the master suite opens up to the backyard. The main living spaces feature a great view of the back property, with a fireplace on the side wall. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Petite Treat

Here's a small home with big curb appeal! Who would guess that this eye-catching cottage holds just 1,400 square feet of heated living space? Despite its size, there’s no skimping on thoughtful details. For example, the master suite boasts an impressive tub with a view, a separate shower, and a large walk-in closet. The kitchen offers a snack bar for casual meals right next to the open dining area. Bonus space above the garage provides room to expand later. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Luxury without the Square Footage

This open and thoughtfully designed floor plan utilizes every square foot well. The core of this home houses the public spaces, including the great room with a fireplace and the breakfast nook, which adjoins the kitchen. A study and formal dining room flank the foyer. The master suite occupies the entire left wing of the house and features a tray ceiling in the bedroom and dual walk-in closets, while two additional bedrooms reside on the right side.
