It’s a 2-for-1: families will enjoy the extra space that these layouts offer now, while the main-level master suites make it easier to age in place later. Smart storage and finish-later bonus suites add even more appeal.

Every Room a Suite

Many traditional Craftsman details such as wood beams, decorative trusses, and exposed rafter tails make the home a natural fit for a mountain, lakeside, or golf course setting. Inside, everyone will love to hang out at the kitchen's roomy bar or in the open great room. Although the master suite is clearly the most luxurious spot in the home, the other three bedrooms also offer quite a bit of comfort with private baths. Don't miss the generous laundry room.

Storage Solutions

Have it both ways: this home's beautiful shingled exterior will fit well in an established neighborhood, while the open layout within is decidedly contemporary. Families will love the open, flowing plan that makes it easy to join in the general conversation while sitting at the kitchen's snack bar, snacking in the bright breakfast nook, or lounging beside the great room's fireplace. The master suite's location on this level lets owners reach their deluxe retreat without climbing stairs. Don't miss the outstanding storage solutions throughout the home, including double walk-in closets in the master suite, a large pantry in the kitchen, and even a dedicated storage room upstairs. Every bedroom includes its own bath, with three powder rooms ready for guests in various locations. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Elegant Yet Practical

European-style details add richness and opulence to this home, while a contemporary open layout gives families what they want inside. The kitchen sports a central island that flows into the great room and breakfast nook, with a fireplace-warmed outdoor living area just steps away. The study provides a place to get work done. French doors let lots of light and fresh air into the dining room. Tucked away in the back corner, the master suite surrounds owners with luxury with a walk-in shower, whirlpool tub, and bright sitting area. Three more bedrooms upstairs include lots of storage and access to the future bonus room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Bright Master Closet

Columns, stone accents, and plenty of windows infuse the exterior of this home with curb appeal. Inside, a comfortable and modern design of the family room caters to the active family requiring more functional than formal space. The island kitchen will be a favorite hangout. A dining room is perfect for entertaining and hosting holiday meals. The first-floor master suite includes an amenity-filled bath and large walk-in closet with a window. Upstairs, three secondary bedrooms use two full baths. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
