Don’t leave multigenerational families out in the cold. These smart plans have easily accessed rooms perfect for an elderly relative or boomerang kid.

Suite Retreat


A set-apart suite just off the foyer gives privacy to a live-in family member or guest. Family bedrooms are clustered on the right side, with the master suite enjoying a luxurious bath and dual walk-in closets. The generous great room opens completely to the island kitchen, so there's plenty of space for the whole family to gather. For more images, information, and the floor plan, click here.

Separate but Close

A detached guest suite makes this an ideal design for a temperate climate. This enchanting courtyard home is filled with Mediterranean design details and open connections to a central loggia. At the heart of the home, the island kitchen shares a large space with the leisure room, which features a wall of built-ins and disappearing glass doors that make it one with the loggia. A privacy garden creates a beautiful view from the master suite's luxurious bath. The second level includes a study, two bedroom suites, and multiple decks with courtyard views.

Catch a Lift

An elevator takes family members upstairs, where the home’s second bedroom comes with a private living zone and bathroom. A third bedroom includes a similar, slightly smaller activity area. Two complete bathrooms in the master suite add luxury and practicality. Other highlights include a golf cart bay in the three-car garage, and a first-floor guest suite.

Functional Flexibility

This plan’s first-floor suite can easily use the living room as a private sitting area – just add doors to the foyer entrance from this room, and close them to make it grandma’s own space. The two-story great room has more than enough space for everyone to gather, with access to an optional covered porch. For more images, information, and the floor plan, click here.
