About this Plan

  • This compactly designed Colonial home is so efficiently arranged that it incorporates all the features of much larger homes while allowing the construction cost to remain modest.
  • The first impression upon entering the beautifully proportioned foyer is that of a roomy, traditional American home.
  • The large living room with curved corners spans the entire left side of the home with two perfectly aligned archways on either side of the foyer.
  • Both the living room and the formal dining room are refreshed with healthy cross ventilation.
  • The dining room is so designed as to eliminate the need to negotiate table and chairs when moving from one room to another.
  • Generous counter space can be found in the kitchen along with a useful floor-to-ceiling pantry.
  • Pocket doors close the kitchen off from view when entertaining.
  • A triple window bathes the stair landing with light and illuminates the wide second floor passage.
  • This passage leads to the three bedrooms and to one of the two bathrooms.
  • Both the minor bedrooms enjoy cross ventilation and feature arched alcoves to hold dressers, which would ordinarily protrude into the room.
  • The generously-sized master bedroom has cross ventilation, two closets and a private bathroom, completing the upper floor.
  • A large roof over a roomy attic will allow for future expansion, and will easily accept the addition of dormers and skylights.
  • A beautifully designed lower level in-law suite includes a full kitchen with separate entrances. You can also use this for income as a rental.
