House Plan 72997 greets you with a delightful mixture of Craftsman detail. Panel shingle siding and stone foundation mesh well with the exposed rafter tails in the front facing gables. Comparing the standard elevation to the photographs of a finished home, you will notice the addition of flared siding which aids in shedding rainwater. A three car garage is hidden in the rear of the house alongside a perfect screened porch with cathedral ceiling and outdoor fireplace. There could be no better place to spend the afternoon on a hammock with a book or chatting with friends over a cookout.
With rustic exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and multiple fireplaces, you will find every excuse to stay home on the weekend! At just 2,394 square feet, this home was designed with an open floor plan in which the great room, kitchen, dining room and screened porch flow together, keeping your family and guests close and interactive. The great room includes a patio door system that completely disappears, opening the room to the outside screened porch. With matching tiles, the porch is seamlessly integrated into the main living space.
Off the kitchen is a small pantry that opens to the left into a large “hidden pantry” which is lined with shelves for abundant storage space. Use the dining room hutch to display your prized china and serve smaller meals in the bright hearth room next to the fireplace. An out of the way hallway exit leads to a sizable laundry room with utility sink, walk in coat closet and access to the garage. One huge bonus- the master walk in closet opens to the laundry room with a pocket door! This arrangement is the definition of convenience! No more hauling laundry baskets around the house- well, except for the person occupying bedroom number two. But what’s the point of being in the master bedroom if you don’t have all the best perks in the house?
The master suite features a spectacular ceiling, unique shower and a free standing tub for relaxing in front of the fireplace that is shared with the main room. Pocket doors throughout the master suite save space, and an exit leads out to the front porch. Bedroom number 2, complete with a full private bath, is located just off the entry to the left and can double as a den or office. Don’t forget that you could finish the basement if you need more bedrooms. Click here to see more photographs and information about House Plan 72997.
