If you're not building modern farmhouses, are you missing out? Maybe; after all, this modern farmhouse style dominates the pre-drawn house plan landscape right now. There are plenty of good reasons to consider it. Unlike some other trends (looking at you, Tuscan-influenced estates), the farmhouse style translates well to many areas. It isn't likely to look dated after a few years. And light exteriors feel especially fresh and springy - a decided advantage over many existing homes.

Family-Friendly Storage

This 2,201-square-foot design sports chic modern farmhouse styling and a family-friendly layout. The master suite dazzles with a large bathroom (check out the double sinks and big shower) and direct access to the laundry room through the walk-in closet. Lockers keep the entrance from the garage tidy. In the middle of the home, the island overlooks the open dining area and great room. A bonus room upstairs adds flexibility.

Simple, Compact Footprint

Curb appeal on a not-huge lot: that’s what this 2,346-square-foot farmhouse delivers. The open layout makes it easy to move around the family room, island kitchen, and open dining room, and then out to the covered patio. A den provides space for working from home. Located on the main level, the master suite gives owners double sinks, a separate tub and shower, and a walk-in closet. Two generous secondary bedrooms rest upstairs, along with a bonus room.

Suites for All

Four private suites? Yes, please. Every bedroom boasts an adjoining bathroom, with the master suite’s one especially impressive (check out the double vanities, central shower, and separate tub, along with two walk-in closets). In the middle of the home, the ultra-open layout feels fresh and modern. After a meal in the open dining room, step out to the spacious back lanai. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Porch Paradise

Ideal for a scenic lot, this farmhouse boasts a wraparound porch that extends around much of the home to provide plenty of room for outdoor relaxation. Inside, the master suite showcases large dimensions and a five-piece bathroom that feels contemporary with a freestanding tub. For families who want more room to expand later, the huge bonus spaces upstairs will be a big draw. See more images, information, and the floor plans.
