Traditional Two-Story Plan

By Dan Gregory, Originally Published in Houseplans.com

The broad front porch and friendly gables give this plan curb appeal.

Symmetry is the order of the day in popular Plan 48-105. Cedar shingles, stone accents, and a neighborly front porch further the attraction.

The floor plan is well thought-out, with formal living and dining areas flanking the foyer, and casual living to the back. A convenient butler's pantry connects the dining room and the service hall to the kitchen. The flow is circular, allowing easy movement between spaces, with no dead-end rooms.

Choose an optional pocket door to separate the living room and the family room. The informal nook features double doors to a rear patio and a built-in desk to help keep you organized.

Upstairs rooms include a vaulted master suite and three family bedrooms, one of which may be used as a den.

The master bath is worthy of note as it contains a huge walk-in closet, separate shower and spa tub and compartmented toilet. Bonus space over the garage can become a fifth bedroom, a game room or home office space in the future.
