The façade includes two protected entrances, the first under
an entry porch with balustrade above, the second tucked back between
the main and garage wings.
Past the front door, a two-story center hall opens on the left and
right to a formal living and dining room and at the far end into a large
kitchen. The kitchen, breakfast nook, and family room form an open,
flowing space that extends the width of the house. The family-room ceiling
rises to two stories, and a fireplace sits against the far wall; three
windows face the deck and the back lawn. An attached mudroom wing with
laundry area offers a convenient rear entrance into the kitchen.
A main staircase with an open balustrade leads up to a second-floor
hall wide enough for furniture and open on one side to the hall below
with an overlook on the other side to the family room. The large master
bedroom looks out over the front lawn. Past two walk-in closets, the
master bath features dual vanities, a glass shower, and a platform tub.
The classic, two-story Colonial form conveys a timeless elegance, and
the Cheshire offers a second recessed entrance opening into the oversized
mudroom. Plans for this house have been carefully drawn and include
authentic details. The layout combines a smooth flow and an efficient
use of space. All of the rooms have large windows and will accommodate
optimal furniture arrangements.
You can order the stock house plan or configure it to meet your personal
specifications with the Original Home Plan Tool. The Plan Tool offers
many options, such as an extended master suite, bonus room, or a spare
bedroom above the garage. This house can expand to from 2 to 5 baths
and from 3 to 5 bedrooms. Other interior options include a back stair,
several master bath upgrades, and alternate laundry locations.
The first and second floor ceilings can be raised to 9 feet and the
main house can be lengthened by up to 4 feet. You may choose a 2 or
3 car garage and place the doors on the front or side of your home.
On the exterior, change the siding to clapboard, stucco, shingles, or
brick. Choose from many optional features including porches, roof styles,
and gables to create your own original design.
