Could this be your forever home? When you glimpse the blueprints, you’ll see just what we mean. This modern home is just as versatile as it is stylish.

To start, this home is single level, which makes it perfect for empty-nesters or people who plan to age in place. Yet the design means that it’s perfectly possible to comfortably raise a family in this home, too.

With wide open spaces and an enormous rear patio, this home could be a vacation home—or it could be the home you spend your life in, letting you feel like you’re always on vacation!

Step through the front door and into the vaulted great room, and you’ll immediately feel the sense of relaxation this home was designed to give you. Windows along the back and sides of this space give you a clear view of the beautiful landscape you’ve created. It’s an inviting space, one that will tempt you to settle into an armchair and enjoy the view. Display shelves give you the perfect spot to show off family photos or the treasures you’ve collected over the years, and the fireplace on one wall will keep you feeling warm and cozy when the snow starts to fall in the winter.

In the summer, though, you won’t be able to resist slipping out to the back patio. Like the rest of the home, this is a versatile space that will let you do whatever it is you’ve always wanted to do with an outdoor living space. Perhaps a pool is what you want, and if so, there is plenty of room here, plus plenty of seclusion. This space could also become an outdoor kitchen, or it could simply be the outdoor haven that you retreat to when you need an escape.

Speaking of retreats, the master bedroom may end up being your favorite place to escape. Windows here give you the same beautiful view as the living space, and sliding doors provide access to the back patio. A walk-in closet is easily accessible so that you can slip in to change into a bathing suit, evening attire or whatever outfit suits the occasion.

Within the master bath, a beautifully designed tiled shower lets you refresh yourself—with dual shower heads so you can enjoy the sensation of rainfall. Too, there is a spa tub for when you’d prefer a warm bath to relax.

The design is not without a practical side. The first thing you’ll notice between the garage and the foyer is a mudroom that doubles as a laundry area. It’s a useful space that lets you confine the mess from outdoors while helping you tend to laundry and other day-to-day chores.

A walk-in pantry off the kitchen provides the room you need to store dry goods, and linen closets keep things like towels and tablecloths organized.

Two additional bedrooms can serve a variety of purposes. The kids will love them if you’re planning a family, and if not, then these spaces make ideal guest rooms when you have friends come to visit. Other possibilities include home office space, a studio or a comfortable den where you can spend quiet evenings reading—the choice is yours!
