Front-facing garages are practical for small lots, but they can quickly overtake the front elevation. Here's an elegant midsize house plan with a front-facing garage that complements the curb appeal.
Separate doors for the two-car garage break it up visually, so it's not just a big block of garage. Gables and a dormer draw the eye up.
The main floor holds the straightforward, very open layout. All three bedrooms line up against the left side of the home (with the primary suite enjoying a view of the backyard), while the living spaces flow into one another on the right side.
Upstairs, a large game room includes a full bathroom and provides a lot of versatility. A window seat adds a charming touch for reading.
