Make your homes stand out from existing stock by offering buyers one of these small-yet-deluxe plans. An outdoor fireplace? Check. Two levels of porches? Ditto. A kitchen with two islands? Sold.

Sleek Plan for a Narrow Lot

Two levels of porches, clean lines, and modern amenities—like the snack bar that seats four—make this small home a contemporary classic. Best of all, at just 25 feet wide, it’ll fit a very narrow lot. The kitchen, dining nook, and entertainment room create a hub for family living, with more living and dining space in front and three bedrooms upstairs, all of which happens in just 1,586 square feet.

Kitchen-Centric Layout

When it comes down to it, floor plans are all about the kitchen and great room. This 2,138-square-foot plan delivers a spacious cooking space with two islands and a snack bar serving the great room. Just outside, an outdoor fireplace warms the covered patio. The first-floor master suite features a foyer to maintain visual privacy. A study sits on this level. Upstairs, two bedrooms can use the future rec room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Elegant and Economical

With alluring detail and a striking Spanish tile roof, this 1,826-square-foot home has great street presence. Enter under a portico to find the great room, bathed in natural light. To the right, a sunny dining area flows into the angled serving-bar kitchen for ultimate convenience. The first-floor master suite includes a box-bay sitting area and a splendid bath with a spa tub. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a full bath. Bonus space above the garage can be used as a study, game room, home gym—whatever your buyer desires. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

All Fired Up

Stone accents and decorative shutters put a rustic spin on this traditional home. A covered porch offers dual benches that are particularly handy for removing muddy boots. The entry leads to the two-story great room, lit by windows topped by transoms and warmed by a two-way fireplace. The kitchen and keeping room benefit from the other side of the hearth. On the far right, the master suite shines with a 10-foot ceiling and plush bath. Two additional bedrooms are upstairs and share a full bath with private sinks.
