Open layouts were one of the 10 Top Design Trends of 2012, and these duplex plans deliver just that. Buyers will love the spacious feel and modern amenities of these smart designs.

One Project, Two Plans

Each unit in this charming duplex is unique, but one thing alike is an open layout with seating for four at the kitchen snack counter. The unit on the left has two bedrooms, two baths, and a sun room. On the right, the one-bedroom unit includes a dining room and a powder bath in addition to the master suite’s full bath.

Spacious and Special

This impressive Craftsman-style duplex features two mirror-image units with finished lower levels. An open floor plan where the kitchen’s eat-in island overlooks both the dining and great rooms creates a living area that is large and comfortable. Arched openings, a fireplace with built-in cabinets, and stepped ceiling details are just some of the things buyers will love about these units. The master suite features a spacious walk-in closet and dual sinks. The second bedroom can also double as a den and is located just off the entry. Downstairs, each unit features a large family room with a wet bar, an additional bathroom, and a third bedroom with a walk-in closet. Each unit is completed with a three-car garage and extra storage. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Flexible Arrangements

This duplex could work well for an extended family who would like to remain close but independent. The unit on the left holds two bedrooms and a large living space with a kitchen island. On the right, the one-bedroom unit has a different, though also open, layout. The units share a generous foyer.   See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Family Functionality

Each plan features a kitchen snack counter serving the dining and great rooms. Separate patios extend living space outdoors. A staircase in the foyer leads to an optional basement plan. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a full hall bath, while the master suite enjoys a walk-in closet and a private bath. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
