MEN 5101

From award-winning designer Michael E. Nelson comes a stunning addition to our Craftsman House Collection. Aspen Retreat is a rustic craftsman bungalow style house plan with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. With 3,698 square feet of living space, this pleasantly inviting home plan emphasizes togetherness and entertainment. From the vaulted ceilings in the Great Room and expansive Media Room to the angled rear covered porch, Aspen Retreat brings modern day a rustic mountain-inspired craftsman home!

Stone Accent Entry

Before entering the home, you step onto the 8-foot covered front porch. Framed by warm stone columns, this porch leaves ample room for rocking chairs and a patio table to embrace cool mornings while seeing the kids off to school.

Open Floor Plan

Stepping into the Foyer, you see directly into the open floor plan, which combines the Great Room and Kitchen/Dining area. This open space showcases a vaulted ceiling over the Great Room and Dining area, as well as banks of windows spanning each wall. The fireplace will add warmth to your gathering in the Great Room, and the Dining area has more than enough room for a formal dining table to seat 10 guests and family members.

To the left of the Dining area are built-in storage shelves for your favorite knick-knacks and hobbies. The Kitchen houses a high-low bar island with additional seating for up to 6 others, and generous counterspace allows room for your culinary adventures to grow. Leaving the Kitchen to the front of this floor plan takes you to a huge walk-in pantry just off the kitchen. With so much storage room, you can quickly become the chef of your dreams with a fully stocked pantry around the corner.

At the very rear of the Aspen Retreat house plan is a Morning Room with rear- and side-facing windows looking out onto your covered porch and yard. This is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee while admiring the great view your outdoor living space provides and the beautiful sun rays pouring in.

Split Bedrooms

The front, right side of Aspen Retreat houses Bedrooms 2 and 3, each with front-facing windows for plenty of natural lighting. Bedroom 3 includes a large step-in closet and is designed to be an alternate study or home office option, too. Between Bedroom 2 and 3 is a linen closet to keep the personal closets free of household clutter.

Around the corner, to the right of Bedroom 3, is Bedroom 2. Bedroom 2 includes two moderately sized walk-in closets and is ideal for siblings or a nursery. From Bedroom 2 continuing to the right of the Aspen Retreat house plan, you will come to the first full bath. The two sinks in this bathroom are individual to allow for easy shared use. A secluded enclosure to the toilet and shower/tub gives plenty of privacy without shutting out others needing sink and counter space.

Media Room Adventures

The Media Room is a large, angled addition at the rear of Aspen Retreat. Access the Media Room through the rear of the Great Room, or through the full bath. Simple access to the bathroom from the Media Room puts a hold on the stop-and-start of your movie nights, while a good-sized media closet makes choosing your show the hardest part of the night. Easily store your favorite films and shows close by without taking up precious storage space throughout the rest of your home!

Master Suite Entrance

Continuing through the Kitchen and past your large chef’s pantry takes you to the beginning of the Master Suite private entry. Before heading into the Master Suite, you come to a quaint desk and study space with shelf storage. The Master Suite resides to the left of this house plan, where a stunningly spacious bedroom with front-facing windows and a unique shape allows for all your personal touches and favorite statement pieces.

Flowing from the Master Suite to the rear of the home takes you into the Master Bath. This space is incredibly roomy with a full tile shower space and room for a free-standing tub. The Master Bath includes his and her vanities to ensure morning and nightly routines aren’t full of bumping elbows and crowded faucets. The Master bath also boasts 3 enormous walk-in closets. With so much room for clothing, bedding, toiletries, and more, Aspen Retreat can almost guarantee an end to any squabbles about closet space!

Adjoining Laundry Room

Exiting the Master Bath to the rear of this floor plan, you arrive in the adjoining Laundry Room. Wash, dry, fold, and organize in your outfitted Laundry Room! Ample counter space and even a sink for clean-up or handwashing makes your weekly chore a breeze. A storage closet and room for a freezer in the Laundry Room saves space throughout your Aspen Retreat home with multipurpose utility.

Garage Adjacent Safe Room

From the Laundry Room, a quick turn leads into the large Safe Room, just before the garage entry. The Safe Room included within Aspen Retreat is highly secure and designed to have more than enough space for your family, pets, and emergency necessities. Aspen Retreat houses a roomy 3-car garage with side entry. This garage is incredibly spacious to store your vehicles, lawn equipment, and holiday decorations.

Outdoor Porch Gathering

Nearly the entire length of the home rest a stunningly large staggered rear Covered Porch. This porch follows the length of the Great Room down and around the Media Room. Lined in matching stone accent columns to coincide with the front porch design, the Covered Porch has three sections. The first leg is perfect for garden chairs and potted plants, with steps leading down to your backyard. Following to the right is the next staggered section designated for grilling and cook-outs. Following through, your Covered Porch opens into an Outdoor Living Space with a vaulted ceiling and is ideal for comfortable sitting and cool summer nights.
