This lovely farmhouse plan by award winning designer Michael E. Nelson is sure to please. This home design gives you just over 1,800 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Unlike a traditional farmhouse style house plan, this design gives you a 2-bay garage. The exterior of the home has classic shiplap style siding that would look absolutely divine in almost any color. Inside the home you will find a large master suite and an open floor plan featuring the great room, breakfast room and kitchen.
Amazing Curb Appeal
Approaching the home, the first thing that you notice is the shiplap style siding that gives this home massive curb appeal. Shiplap siding is very popular and can be painted in a variety of colors including dark grey and white to give it that classic farmhouse style vibe. The front of the home is faced with a lovely covered porch that just makes you want to sit down with a cold glass of sweet tea and relax.
Entering the home, you find yourself in the foyer. This is a traditional style foyer that separates this space from the rest of the home. This separation is ideal for those days when the weather is just not cooperating in keeping your floor clean.
Entertaining in Style
To the left of the foyer is the flex area/dining room. This space can be used in many different ways. This space is large enough to fit a large table and entertain plenty of guests. This room has a lovely double window that faces out over the covered porch in the front of the home.
Open Floor Plan
Stepping from the dining room, you find yourself in an open floor plan that incorporates the kitchen, great room and breakfast room. This airy space makes this home feel large and impressive to even the most discerning visitors
Room to Relax
The great room features a vaulted ceiling that makes the large space feel even more open. The great room also features faux beams that are exposed to give the home a rustic, country feel. In the corner of this space, you will find a large fireplace that is perfect for cozy nights staying in.
Ready for the Big Game
The rear wall of the space gives you plenty of light from a large triple window that faces out onto the rear of the home. This wall also gives you access to the grilling porch. The grilling porch is uncovered and perfect for entertaining in the warmer months or grilling during the big game.
Moving further into the home, you find yourself in the breakfast room. This space lies between the great room and the kitchen and has that same rustic, country feel with the vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. The breakfast room is cozy but has plenty of light from the window on the rear wall of the space that faces out into the rear of the home.
Adjacent to the breakfast room is the large kitchen. This kitchen has its own entrance from the covered porch through a small space that has access to the pantry. The kitchen gives you tons of counter space and room for a large range.
Separating the kitchen from the great room is a large “L” shaped island with seating for 6. This island is the perfect place to clean up after a meal with the sink facing the great room to allow you to keep an eye on the comings and goings while you load the dishwasher.
Kid Friendly; Easy on Mom
Just past the kitchen you will find the laundry room and kids nook directly off the garage. The laundry room has its own window that faces the front of the home while the kid’s nook gives you a place to store cold weather gear and wet shoes as you come into the home.
Masterful Master Suite
At the rear of the plan you will find the master suite. This large space gives you everything that you would need to relax after a hard day’s work. The master bedroom continues the theme from the rest of the home with a vaulted ceiling and features two windows that face the rear of the home. The master bedroom also has its own entrance to the grilling porch.
The master bath has everything you need to slip into relaxation. The master bath gives you a double vanity with plenty of room for both you and the spouse. It also has room for both a glass shower and a whirlpool tub. Don’t forget about the large walk-in closet!
Split Floor Plan
On the other side of the plan, just off of the foyer you will find a short hallway with bedrooms 2 and 3 and their adjacent bathroom. Each bedroom has a large window that faces the front and rear of the home, respectively and their own linen closet. They share the hall bathroom that has plenty of space with a double vanity and a standard sized tub/shower combo.
