Traditional House Plan 58274 has 3,277 square feet of finished space with 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bath and plenty of potential to expand for more living space. Curb appeal is achieved with a craftsman style porch topped with a red metal roof and three dormers. The three car garage boasts attractive features including exposed rafters and carriage house doors.
The formal dining room is immediately to your left as you come in the front door. In the past, it was popular to have a dark and intimate dining room, but now most homeowners prefer openness and light. This dining room is separated from daily traffic by two large, arched openings.
Straight ahead is a view of the family room where we find 12’ coffered ceilings and a fireplace surrounded by built in cabinets. Elegant arches over the windows draw your attention to a peaceful covered porch overlooking the rear property.
In the kitchen we find an arrangement that lends itself to entertaining. The center island is home to your sink and shelving for cookbooks. A second island is raised on one side for comfortable bar seating. Dark cabinets, stone counters and stainless steel appliances add to the high end appearance. A combination of recessed lights and pendants is the finishing touch.
Turn the corner to access a large kitchen pantry. The exit door leads to the laundry, powder room and two exits—one being the “friends entrance,” and the other leading to the garage. Take the staircase up to your optional bonus room above the garage. If you decide to finish the space and the bathroom, it would be desirable for a renter, guests or a teenager who enjoys privacy.
The master bedroom on the main floor is adorned with a deep tray ceiling, and let’s not forget the luxurious ensuite. Pass between the his and hers walk in closets and enjoy a marvelous bathroom with double vanity, shower, dressing table, whirlpool tub and private water closet. All modern amenities are accounted for in style.
We also have a guest suite on the first floor that could double as an office, and two more bedrooms upstairs. Each bedroom has a full bathroom and quick access to a media room, should you choose to finish the space. Teenage kids would love to gather here with friends, and younger children would enjoy the space as a playroom.
There really is no end to the income potential in this home. The walkout basement is like another home in itself. It features a small kitchen, recreation area, gathering room, theater room, and two bedrooms—each with its own walk in closet. In addition, there is a vast storage room.
