It’s just that these plans are the most popular selling plans for a reason. They are easy to customize and modify and they are great plans for builders. We have had many builders ask for these plans in particular because they make great selling houses. Be sure to check these out.
4. Country Club Drive (NDG 769)
This plan, which is part of our Customizable Exteriors House Plans Collection, gives you over 2,500 square feet of living space including 4 bedrooms and 3 baths with a 2-car garage. As you step into the home you are greeted with a high 11-foot ceiling in the foyer. This gives your home a grand space to wow guests.
To the right of the foyer is the Dining Room with 12-foot ceilings and large picture window to give you a great view out the front of the home. To the left of the foyer is the Living Room /Home Theater. This gives you plenty of space to enjoy all of your digital entertainment.
Moving through the Foyer you find yourself in the Great Room featuring built in shelving on either side of the brickwork fireplace. The Great Room features large windows and a door opening up on to the Grilling Porch with its outdoor fireplace.
Adjacent to the Great Room is the Breakfast Room with its built-in computer center, entrance to the Grilling Porch and massive bay window. The Kitchen features a bar with seating for 4, a pantry and an L-shaped countertop that gives you plenty of space for those large holiday dinner preparations.
Continuing to the right side of the home, you find a Laundry Area that leads out to the garage with its built-in storage and the Master Suite. The Master Suite features the Master Bedroom that has a private entrance to the Grilling Porch for those romantic nights without the kids. The Master Bath features a large whirlpool tub, glass corner shower, his and hers sinks and a large walk-in closet.
On the other side of the home, you will find Bedrooms 2, 3, and 4. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a Jack and Jill bathroom while Bedroom 4 has easy access to the hall bathroom. This home is beautiful. Be sure to check out the photos from one of our clients.
3. Crafton Place (NDG 1498)
This house plan gives you just over 2,600 square feet of living space with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 1 half bath. The plan also gives you a 3-car garage to store your mechanical beauties. This plan features a lovely open floor plan combining the great room and the kitchen with a vaulted ceiling and timber beams defining the space. Don’t forget to check out the lovely photos sent to us of this house plan after it was built!
This house plan is a rustic beauty. It has a lovely covered porch on the front of the home that has stonework and wood columns. The rustic vibe extends to the covered entryway with a lovely vaulted ceiling over the stairs.
As you enter the home, you find yourself in the foyer. This area features high ceilings that bring in plenty of light from the entry way and keep with the rustic feel of the home. The dining room is to the right of the foyer and features a sloped ceiling and a large picture window facing the front of the home.
The dining room has its own entryway to the kitchen so that if you are carrying food to and from the dining room, you don’t have to walk around through the foyer. This small detail adds so much more dimension to entertaining in your home.
From the foyer you can make your way to the great room and kitchen. This space features a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams running through out. The great room is dominated by the large fireplace on the left wall. The rear wall of the great room is taken up by large windows and a French door opening to the outdoor living area/grilling porch.
The outdoor living area is covered and features all the features from the inside brought outside. It has vaulted ceilings and exposed timber beams with an outdoor fireplace and grilling kitchen. Back inside the house, you can move into the kitchen.
This space has a large kitchen island that has seating for 8 right in the middle of the space that separates the kitchen and great room. Another key feature of the kitchen is the large pantry that gives you plenty of storage space for even the largest of shopping trips.
The wall behind the fireplace in the great room gives you a long hallway that features bedrooms 2, 3 and 4. Bedrooms 3 and 4 share a bathroom and both have a large closet while bedroom 2 has access to a hall bathroom and features a large closet. Each of the bedrooms has a large window.
The other side of the home gives you the garages, one that is a single bay and the other that is a two bay, a laundry room, and a half bath. This side of the home also gives you the master suite. The master bedroom features a large picture window facing the rear of the home as well as an optional door to take you to the outdoor living area.
The master bath gives you both a large tub and a glass shower as well as a linen closet and his and her sinks. The master bath also has the entrances to both of the walk-in closets. One of these would be perfect for a safe room because of its location.
The second floor gives you a bonus room with its own bathroom and an optional arched opening balcony that would overlook the great room and kitchen below. This space would include its own walk in closet and access to attic storage.
2. Timberland Cove (NDG 1428)
One of our most popular plans is our Timberland Cove plan. This is modern living with a Rustic flair. This home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in just over 2,000 square feet of living space. It also features a 3-car garage. When you walk into this home through the covered porch with a vaulted ceiling you find yourself in the foyer. On the right side of the foyer is the entrance to the formal dining room that has sloped ceiling on each side. The foyer also features a closet to store all of those coats and mucky things that we all need from day to day and season to season.
Moving through the foyer you find yourself in a gorgeous Great Room featuring a fireplace and large door and windows opening up onto the Outdoor Living Space. The Great Room merges with the enormous kitchen with an island with seating for six. On the left side of the Great Room you find a hallway leading to 3 bedrooms and one of the bathrooms in the home. Each bedroom has a walk-in closet for plenty of storage.
If you move through the kitchen you find yourself in another hallway that leads to the Master Suite. The Master Suite has room for an optional door to the Outdoor Living Space. The Master Bath features a glass shower with seating, a whirlpool tub and an entrance to the massive walk in closet. If you exit the Master Suite and move back down the hallway you find the half bath, a large laundry room, the stairs to go to the second floor and the entrances to the garages.
On the second floor you have a bonus room, additional storage and a bathroom. One of the options for the second floor is to have an opened balcony that looks down on the Great Room and Kitchen below it.
1. Oak Forrest (NDG 1379)
I love a good farmhouse plan. This particular farmhouse is just over 2,100 square feet of living space and gives you 4 bedrooms with 3 full bathrooms. Unlike most farmhouses, this plan gives you a 3-bay garage to hold your modern horse and carriage. This house plan has one of the prettiest wraps around porches. I can just see someone enjoying a nice glass of iced tea on this porch on a hot summer day. Besides the porch, this house plan also gives you an enormous master suite and an open floor plan that includes the great room, dining room, kitchen and breakfast nook.
As you approach the home, the first thing that you notice is the wrap around porch. I love to wrap around porches. They bring on a level of nostalgia that is pretty hard to beat. And this one wraps on three sides of the home with steps on each side.
As you enter the home, you find yourself in the large great room. This space is part of an open floor plan that combines the great room, dining room, breakfast nook and kitchen. The great room opens up with high ceilings and windows that face the front of the home.
The great room gives you access to the stairwell and a under the stairs nook that is perfect for storage or for a room for the boy who lived. The great room also features a brickwork fireplace on the left wall.
Moving further into the plan, you find yourself at the back of the kitchen counter. This what “separates" the space between the great room and the kitchen. The kitchen gives you plenty of counter space and features a corner pantry and an island with bar seating for five with a prep sink.
The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and features an entrance to the separate grilling porch on the side of the home and large windows on two of the walls. There is also a breakfast nook that is perfect for an informal meal or for a quick bite.
Between the breakfast nook and the laundry room is a small hallway that is perfect for a mudroom. This space comes in from the garage and has a small closet at the end. The laundry room is large and features plenty of counterspace, as well as a sink for soaking stubborn stains. It can also be used as a bathroom in a pinch with a small shower stall and toilet.
Moving further into the home, you will find bedrooms 2, 3, and 4. Bedroom 4 can also be used as a study and gives you a small closet and a window facing the rear of the home. Bedroom 3 has a small closet and features a double casement window that faces the rear of the home. Bedroom 2 has two windows, one that faces the porch and the other that faces the side of the home. All of the bathrooms share the hall bathroom.
The master suite finishes out this floor of the plan. The master suite is right in off the front door. The master bedroom features high ceilings and two windows that face the front of the home. There is a small hallway that moves between the master bedroom and the master suite.
This hallway is closed off from the bedroom by a sliding door and separates the two walk-in closets. The master bath is through this hallway through French doors. The master bath features both a whirlpool tub and a glass shower and has room for a linen closet.
