Even if your buyers don't have an elderly parent living with them, they may well see a young adult move back after college. Or perhaps they'd like to rent out a room for extra income. The point is that an extra suite (or even a full apartment) opens up possibilities and gives your homes wide appeal.

Guest Suite Easy to Reach on the Main Level

A spacious guest suite on the main floor presents owners with all kinds of options: use it to host an elderly relative (no steep staircases to traverse), a young adult (privacy away from the other kids!), or special visitors. An office/flex room features plenty of windows for a bright working environment. Upstairs, the master suite enjoys privacy on one side of the floor (along with a spacious bathroom and big closet), while three more bedrooms occupy the other side. The laundry room is easy to access up here. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Big Showers and Flexible Rooms

Busy families will appreciate the versatility and storage that make this modern farmhouse stand out. Three bedrooms on the main floor include the master suite (complete with a walk-in shower and double sinks), a flexible den/guest suite, and another guest room. Upstairs, two additional bedrooms and a media room give older kids room to stretch out. Everyone will gather around the kitchen’s big island or out on the spacious back lanai, where an outdoor kitchen invites grilling. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

The Williamsburg by Visbeen Architects present homeowners with an open layout, luxurious bedrooms, and even a private apartment over the garage that can be finished to give tons of privacy and space to in-laws, a young adult, or perhaps even tenants. This versatile apartment includes a sitting room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. On the main level, the kitchen definitely will become the party zone. A screened porch encourages multi-season outdoor enjoyment. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Easy Downsizing

This attractive empty nest or starter home includes two suites, open gathering areas, and plenty of storage. The “signature space” could be used as a pocket office, craft zone, pet center…you name it. For extra convenience, choose the master suite option that opens the closet directly to the laundry room.
