European Estate Home with Porte Cochere and Lower Level Expansion
4.5 - 6.5
About This Plan
- Dramatic two-story and barrel-vaulted ceilings make this European house plan a real stand-out. The lovely curved staircase is the first thing you see when you enter the home.
- Interior columns between the foyer, the two-story dining room and living room keep the sight lines open and make each room feel huge.
- The library is set in a bay and comes with a gorgeous vaulted ceiling.
- In the master suite, even the walk-in closet is special, with built-in shelves and a storage island. And you can step right out onto the 12' deep rear porch from the master suite.
- A balcony bridge on the upper floor lets you look down into the foyer and dining room on one side and the great room on the other side.
- The desk area serves double duty with its stack washer/dryer that serves the three upstairs bedrooms.
- An elegant porte cochere (1,195 sq. ft.) separates the two car and three car garages, providing shelter from rain and bad weather.
- Finish the lower and gain an extra 1,707 square feet of living space with a game room, exercise room and an extra bedroom or two.
