What do almost all the bestselling plans sold through Builder House Plans and its sister sites have in common? Stone. It adds serious appeal, whether covering the exterior or merely adorning an accent wall.

Bedroom for a Boomerang

Slim dimensions and a front-loading garage suit this design for a narrow lot, but the plan keeps plenty of open spaces inside. Buyers will enjoy meals in the sunny breakfast nook or at the kitchen's snack bar; both open to the fireplace-warmed great room. The master suite finds good privacy in a back corner, and features dual walk-in closets and a private bath with separate shower and whirlpool tub. Two more bedrooms share a bath near the front. A bonus suite upstairs provides room for a boomerang kid. For more images, information, and the floor plan, click here.

The great room, complete with cathedral ceiling and fireplace, opens to the breakfast room and kitchen. The master bedroom is located on the first floor for privacy, with a cathedral ceiling, two large walk-in closets, and a luxurious master bath.
