This three bedroom, two and a half bathroom house plan is a masterful example of rural or suburban Farmhouse living. From its simple style, to its signature front porch, this house plan exudes the concepts of practicality, purity, and endurance. Once inside you will see this plans ample kitchen and working spaces, as well as its open living and family rooms. Upstairs you will find great living-quarters with a luxurious master bed & bath space, and ample rooms for two to three children. Outside you will find a connected garage with space for two cars, or an ample workshop.
The first floor of this home is perfect for family meals or entertaining parties with family, friends, and neighbors. This plan seamlessly mixes a formal dining space, with a classic working farmhouse kitchen, and a modern open living and family room space. There is access from either the front porch or, the connected garage for those cold winter nights.
The focus of this second floor is the Master Suite (a.k.a Mom and Dad’s Room). A retreat from the children, this suite comes with a separate shower and bath, his and her sinks, and a full walk-in closet. What better location could you imagine to wind down from a long day at work or with the kids? The remainder of the floor is dedicated to an efficient plan allowing for two ample bedrooms, one shared bathroom, and an upstairs laundry unit.
