Wayne Visbeen may be best known for his award-winning lakeside cottages and summery Shingle homes, but lately he’s expanded his repertoire to include these (already quite popular) Southern-influenced designs. Look for impressive outdoor living integrated into the layouts, as well as finished lower levels and finish-later bonus spaces. See the Visbeen Architects collection.

Full In-Law Apartment Available

Reminiscent of traditional Southern coastal design, this sizable plan by Visbeen Architects is a luxurious family cottage. With a variety of cozy rooms and work spaces throughout the main level, the home never feels overwhelming. Owners will love the convenience and comfort of the first-floor master suite, which includes a luxurious bathroom and a large walk-in closet. In addition to the wraparound front porch, a covered deck, screened room, and patio make it clear that outdoor living is important. Three full bedroom suites, a bunk room, and a spacious loft sitting area are located on the top level. For in-laws or special guests, the bonus space can be finished as an apartment that's complete with a kitchen. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Seamless Indoor/Outdoor Living

This spacious home from Visbeen Architects offers a big porch and deck that nearly surrounds the home, including a screened section at the back and an outdoor bar easily served from the kitchen inside. The living, dining, and kitchen areas share this level with the spacious master suite. Upstairs, guests will be delighted to find two huge bedroom suites, along with an additional bedroom or living room, loft area, and laundry facilities. The lower level has abundant space for friends and family. See more images, information, and floor plans.
