Flexible and Fun

Stone joins shake and wood siding to make a pleasing combination on the facade of this comfortable ranch plan. The open-concept, two-bedroom design (with a flexible use study that can easily become a third bedroom) is perfection for a young or downsizing couple. Step ceilings, a corner fireplace, and a wall of windows looking out to the covered porch give the great room lots of interest. The totally open kitchen flows effortlessly into the large dining area, perfect for today's casual lifestyles. A walk-in pantry and mud room add contemporary convenience.

Outstanding Curb Appeal

Beautiful brickwork accents the front of this plan, adding to the already-great curb appeal. The split-bedroom layout ensures plenty of privacy for the spacious master suite. Owners will love the large closet, big shower, and dual sinks in here, as well as the easy proximity to the laundry room. The unfinished basement offers an abundance of expansion options as the family grows. Other highlights: walk-in closets for both secondary bedrooms (plus another by the garage), an island in the kitchen, and a patio and porch outside the breakfast nook.

Efficient and Thoughtful

Ready to maximize a compact lot, this family home stacks gables for an eye-catching facade. Inside, the efficient layout opens the kitchen up to the informal dining room and the great room, with the patio cutting into the footprint for good integration with the outdoors. Upstairs, the master suite gets the basics right: a big shower, two sinks, and a walk-in closet (an archway adds a nice sense of transition between the bedroom and bathroom). Two more bedrooms share a bath with two sinks, with a nearby small study good for homework. Well-placed windows bring natural light to the staircase, laundry room, and all the bathrooms.

The well-appointed master suite includes double walk-in closets, an oversize jet tub, a separate shower, and dual vanities. The large two-car garage comes with a bonus storage space. Don't miss the handy pantry and desk on the way in from the garage. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
