Not everyone wants a tub in the master bathroom. These four plans cater to modern tastes by providing simply a big shower. Of course, secondary bathrooms provide tubs for kids. 

Designed for Real Life

Here's a seriously practical layout that also sports some great amenities. Case in point: the master suite offers a walk-in closet, a big shower in lieu of a tub, and easy proximity to the second-floor laundry facilities. Two other bedrooms use the full hall bath. Downstairs, the kitchen's snack counter is handy to the dining room, and a covered porch nestles in next to the great room. Extra storage in the garage is a nice touch.  At 39 feet wide, this plan is a good choice for a not-so-wide lot.  See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Romance Meets Practicality 

Buyers will fall in love with the cottage-like exterior of this home, and then become enamored all over again as they realize how smart the layout is inside. The open living and dining rooms are served by the kitchen's snack bar, with more counter space provided by the central island. The master suite includes a generous bedroom, big walk-in closet, and a large shower. Two more bedrooms—one easily switches to a den if needed—use another full bath.

The Buyer Gets to Choose

This smart design lets buyers choose the configuration that best suits them. In the first layout, the open great room/dining area offers a corner fireplace, and the kitchen’s sink and snack bar are on the left, with enough room for an extra table by the stove. If they prefer a more streamlined kitchen, the second layout eliminates that table and shifts the extra space to the great room, placing the fireplace against the back wall. In either case, the master suite enjoys privacy in the right wing, with a foyer keeping the bedroom entrance out of view from the main areas and a generous shower in the bathroom.

Streamlined Living

No fussiness here, just a practical layout that will serve buyers well for everyday living. Unloading groceries is easy with the pantry close to the garage entrance. The snack bar makes it easy to serve up meals while keeping an eye on what’s happening in the great room. Upstairs, the master suite’s large walk-in closet is easily accessed from the large shower. A cozy fireplace warming the back patio is a special detail that will create a memory point for buyers. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
