This luxurious farmhouse has captured the heart of Pinterest users. No wonder: the wraparound covered porch, spacious kitchen, and super-deluxe master suite are the stuff dream homes are made of. Built-in cabinets flank the fireplace in the grand room; a fireplace also warms the hearth room. A secluded home office, with a separate entrance nearby, provides a quiet work place. The master suite dominates the second floor, offering a spacious sitting area with an elegant tray ceiling, a dressing area, and a luxurious bath with two walk-in closets, double vanities, and a raised garden tub.

Country Appeal

Why is this plan so popular on social media? No doubt the appealing Craftsman-meets-country exterior has a lot to do with it. The layout inside is appealing, too, with a luxurious main-level master suite and a serving bar in the kitchen. The bedroom nearby could function as a home office or an in-law suite with a full bath nearby. Two bedrooms upstairs share a full bath and an optional bonus room.

Attainable Luxury

Here’s a newer addition to the roster of popular plan photos on social media. Perhaps people can easily imagine living in this not-super-big family home. Inside, a cozy keeping room opens up to the kitchen, where a serving counter adds casual seating space. A second-floor laundry room conveniently serves all four bedrooms upstairs.

Exceptional Curb Appeal

Want more proof that porches reign supreme when it comes to curb appeal? This two-story family home marries a seriously eye-catching exterior with a practical, open layout. Like the previous home, this one sports a laundry room upstairs, along with a large bonus room that can be finished later.
