Luxury today means spacious kitchens, sleek master bathrooms, and lots of flexibility baked into the design. What it doesn't have to mean: a big lot. These home plans from Florida-based designer Dan Sater showcase upscale amenities without requiring a ton of land.

Flexes to an Upscale Empty Nest

This elegant design fits nicely on a narrow lot and provides a lot of flexibility in the layout. Families will enjoy the spaciousness and option for a fifth bedroom. Later on, the four private suites will be much appreciated by visitors (or grown children). An elevator option makes it easier to get around, especially for an elderly relative.

Full of thoughtful amenities, this one-story home fits nicely on a slim lot. The kitchen takes center stage, with a large island and a separate wine cooler area that makes it easy to grab a special bottle while entertaining family and friends. Ceiling treatments throughout the home draw the eye up. In the master suite, two spacious walk-in closets give plenty of wardrobe room to both partners, while the spa-like bathroom shows off a walk-in shower and separate tub. Two more suites sit near the front of the home, ready for visitors. Don’t miss the outdoor kitchen in back. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

This home may fit a narrow lot, but every room inside boasts lots of space and luxurious amenities. Start with the great room: upon entering from the two-story foyer, you're greeted with a lovely view out two sets of double doors to the rear veranda. Two islands provide space in the kitchen for meal prep and easy socializing at the snack bar. An elevator makes going up to the second floor easy. Up here, you'll find three large bedrooms, including the deluxe master suite with its two-sided fireplace that warms the bedroom and luxurious bath. The master deck connects with storage space above the garage. See more images, information, and the floor plans.
