There’s no such thing as a typical 2,000-square-foot home, as these incredibly diverse mid-size plans show. Whether your priority is to maximize a small lot, go contemporary with a totally open living space, or provide a more elegant and traditional plan, there’s a layout to match.

Elegant and Welcoming

This rambling ranch home evokes Craftsman style with its gabled roofline and large porch graced with columns. Inside the barrel-vaulted entry, more columns define this area and the formal dining room to your right. The main living area lies directly ahead and beckons you forward with two sets of French doors opening to the wide back porch, a bay window in the nook, and a fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves. The well-appointed kitchen includes a breakfast bar that overlooks both the nook and great room to create the open plan. In its secluded location on the left side of the home (and through a private foyer), the master suite impresses with a tray ceiling, dual walk-in closets, and a whirlpool tub.

All About the Great Room

This plan is loaded with features that families will appreciate. The generous great room displays a tray ceiling and a gas fireplace. Nearby, the kitchen boasts a big island with a snack bar. A pocket office near the front receives light through a front-facing window, making this a cheerful spot in which to work or study. Highlights of the luxurious master suite include the decorative ceiling, double walk-in closets, two-sink vanity, and big shower. Across the home, two more bedrooms share a full hall bath with two sinks. Front- and rear-covered porches allow for outdoor enjoyment. A bonus room lets buyers expand later.
