As popular as single-story homes are, two-story homes do offer some unmistakable advantages, including a more efficient use of land and stately curb appeal. Why not offer the best of both? A two-story plan with a main-level master suite lets the owner age in place, and may allow for zoned heating and cooling for extra energy savings.

Masterful Master Suite

At just 1,675 square feet, this affordable three-bedroom home offers surprising value. The first-floor master suite includes a walk-in closet, private bath with separate tub and shower, and dual sinks. The kitchen counter curves to create a convenient snack bar. Upstairs, two additional bedrooms share a full bath and a game loft that also makes a great homework station. For more images, information, and the floor plan, click here.
