Give buyers something fresh and inspiring with these beautiful modern homes. There’s practical substance with all this style, too: look for up-to-date details like elevators, flexible rooms, and lots of storage. 

Stylish and Practical

This sleek home combines outstanding style with the kind of practical details that will make your buyers’ day-to-day lives easier. For example, take a look at the kitchen: a central island gives room to chop veggies while guests can linger at the separate snack counter. A walk-in pantry and nearby butler's pantry (labeled as a buffet) make it easy to store and serve dishes. The spacious family room leads to the two-story dining room on one side and the bright breakfast nook on the other. Take the stairs or the elevator (a smart detail to make aging in place easier) up to the second level. Here, you'll find the ultra-spacious master suite, which offers enough closet space for even the biggest wardrobe. Three more bedrooms all include private baths and easy access to the laundry room. A game room offers more space for fun. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Elevator for Aging in Place

Designed to take full advantage of a narrow, sloped view lot, this plan offers an abundance of great living space. The open-concept living space spills out to a large rear deck. Upstairs, the vaulted master suite invites you to relax by its corner windows or in the spacious shower. A second vaulted bedroom shares a bath with the office/guest room. Take the elevator or stairs to the lower level, where another bedroom, a media room, and a third bath create a comfortable retreat for an older child, a live-in relative, or special guests. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Here's a gorgeous, sleek home that's full of light. On the outside, fun angles and large windows create a modern look with a touch of whimsy. Inside, the great room flows into the open dining space, which in turn leads to the island kitchen. The master suite features a large, relaxing bathroom with two sinks, a separate tub and shower, and a generous walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms share a full hall bath, also with two sinks. Don't miss the guest quarters upstairs or the versatile "activity" space in the garage. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Outstanding Outdoor Living

Outdoor living is an integral part of this gorgeous modern design. The house structure surrounds a pool on two sides, with the pool house enclosing the third side. Entering directly into the living area, openness is the keyword. An exceptionally large kitchen makes both indoor and outdoor entertaining a breeze, especially with the kitchen's casual snack bar offering room for six people to sit. The master and an additional bedroom suite (great for guests with a separate entrance and space for a kitchenette) complete the first level. Upstairs, two more bedrooms access the loft via a bridge that overlooks the living room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
