How many times have you admired a luxury house plan with elegant architectural details? You might love the look of a columned porch as you arrive and marvel at the soaring ceilings that are often associated with those grand homes on the golf course. Then you laugh because there’s no way you would want to clean a house with 5000 square feet, and think of the size of the property to hold it, and consider the added expense with every square foot of building…The list goes on, but you have an aversion to plain old box shaped homes with boring siding and the standard formula- kitchen, living room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
We have a solution to Ranch House Blues! Small Luxury House Plan 65975 offers a beautiful exterior with decorative porch columns, arched windows, brick veneer and steep hipped roof. The garage opens with three arched doors and will house two full size vehicles and a golf cart or other recreational vehicle. The appearance and quality of this home will fit into any upscale neighborhood, and with only 1392 square feet of living space, it also fits into the budget of the average family. Empty nesters have the option of moving into a smaller place without sacrificing the opulence of a larger house, and busy young couples will have less of a house to worry about maintaining.
The living room is defined by an eleven foot tray ceiling and a large expanse of built in shelving surrounding the brick fireplace. White painted wood of the shelves continues with the elegant crown molding into the kitchen with it’s white cabinetry. Simple and clean hanging light fixtures complement the fine stainless steel appliances. Remember that you can always bring in an interior decorator to create a dream kitchen on a blank canvas. Through French doors from the dining room is prime outdoor entertainment space under the covered porch- it’s accessorized with a sink, refrigerator and grill.
A long hallway ensures privacy for three bedrooms. The master suite includes a walk in closet measuring 10′ by 6′ and a bathroom with double vanity, shower and bath. A door opens to the back porch, allowing you to relax with a glass of ice tea on a warm summer night.
