It's easy to imagine this house plan on a patch of green lawn, surrounded by acres of farmland. Gables and a wrap-around porch give it a decidedly country flavor.
But inside, this large two-story home plan isn't in the least bit old-fashioned. Its free-flowing floorplan is designed to suit the needs of a contemporary suburban family.
Three large areas dominate the lower level - the family room/kitchen, living room/dining room, and master suite. Columns add elegance and delineate the boundaries between the various living environments. Coffered ceilings further emphasize the separation between the dining room and living room.
In the master suite, columns divide the sleeping area from a bayed sitting room with a fireplace. Luxuries include a large walk-in closet, his-and-hers vanities and a spa tub. French doors open on a deck that spans the back of the home plan.
French doors in the eating nook also provide deck access. An eating bar divides the family room from a huge, bright country kitchen with walk-in pantry and cooktop work island.
The large utility room is adjacent to the three-car garage, close to the kitchen, and has plenty of cabinet and counter space. A centrally located powder room also serves as a study that could be a home office or guest room.
Each of the two upstairs bedrooms has a private bathroom. A rambling library/loft overlooks the entryway below, and a bonus room is adjacent to the loft. The rest of the huge attic space is available for further development if more bedrooms are needed.
