French Country House Plan 82400 will provide your family with a generous 2,979 square feet of living space with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. Are you tired of modern and traditional architecture? You will find no such boredom with this lovely design.

A hipped roof with gracefully flared eaves, arched windows and doors, wooden shutters and stone siding is what you might picture as the family home in a country estate. The central tower adds to the European aesthetic, bringing old-time castles to mind. You will relish living in a home that recalls the beautiful architecture of the past while also enjoying all of the expected modern amenities inside.

Usher your guests through a set of French doors, and they will naturally gravitate through the great room to the kitchen island. Seating here accommodates 4, but a larger party will remain comfortably close to the hosts as the great room is completely open to the kitchen. Picture plush couches arranged around the fireplace inside, and comparable entertaining space is available right outside on the grilling porch. For cold weather and formal dinners, you will find the dining room adjacent to the great room, and on the opposite side, a cozy family breakfast nook.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located on the left side of the home, and each has its own walk in closet and sink. The bath area is shared between these two bedrooms. On the right side of the house is the master suite. The en suite includes double vanity, glass shower, whirlpool tub, water closet and huge walk in closet.

A powder room is set discretely down the hallway to serve guests or to serve the children as they rush inside from the garage. The laundry and kids nook is tucked away at the garage entrance, and from there we also have access to the spiral staircase that is located in the tower.

Bedroom 4 is located upstairs along with a full bathroom and a computer center. The bonus room over the garage provides storage space, and we also have a media room at the top of the staircase. A teenager could not be happier to utilize a space like this!

The plans also come with an optional bedroom five and optional expansion to create a 3 car garage.
