MEN 5242

From award-winning designer Michael E. Nelson comes one of the newest additions to our Farmhouse House Collection. Mulberry Place is sure to please with just over 2,000 square feet of living space, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths. The exterior of this home design combines the traditional farmhouse look with rustic stylings to generate massive curb appeal. You can’t have a farmhouse without a covered front porch, and this house plan delivers with a lovely covered porch with exposed timber beams giving it a rustic feel. The porch also has a lovely vaulted ceiling that makes sure you and yours stay dry coming into the home. On the inside of the home, you will find a split layout that goes against the traditional farmhouse style house plan and incorporates the more modern element of an open floor plan. Be sure to check out the massive walk-in closet in the master suite and the huge pantry just off the kitchen!

Open Floor Living

The central core of this home design is the open floor plan that incorporates the great room, kitchen, and dining area into one seamless space. Entering the home, you find yourself in the foyer. This unique space is a traditional foyer in every sense except for the bank of windows on the wall on the left side. This bank of windows not only gives you a great view, but it also lets in tons of light in what is traditionally a dark and gloomy area of the home. Straight ahead, the great room features a vaulted ceiling, continuing the trend from the front porch. The great room has exposed faux beams and a large fireplace to give you that rustic vibe in the space. At the rear of the great room is a hallway housing a convenient half bath, making for the perfect guest bathroom, and the other side of the great room gives you a bank of windows that looks out into the front of the home. This section of the landscaping would be a great place for a bird feeder or a butterfly garden.

The great room also gives you two sliding doors that open up to the grilling porch on the rear of the home, where that vaulted ceiling is brought to the great outdoors. This large outdoor space, split into two sections, is perfect for entertaining in all kinds of weather. The larger section, which is closer to the great room, has a vaulted ceiling and is perfect for grilling. The smaller section is still covered and has a large fireplace along one side of it that would be great for snuggling up close to on a chilly day.

The kitchen and the great room are separated by a very long kitchen island that spans nearly the width of the room. This island has seating for 6 and gives you a perfect place to prep dishes and to clean up after a meal with the large sink and dishwasher. This lets you keep an eye on the comings and goings while you are cleaning up. The rest of the kitchen has loads of counterspace and room for a large range that is centrally located in the left wall of the space. A large walk-in pantry is perfect for those who don’t like to go to the store very much or who want to buy in bulk.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room. This large space gives you tons of room for entertaining (probably enough room to fit a 10-seat table easily into this space). The dining room also features a bank of windows that look out onto the rear of the home.

Room to Grow

To the right of the foyer is a bedroom that can be used as a guest room or study. This room is accessed through barn doors from the foyer and features a double window that looks out under the covered porch at the front of the home. This room also gives you a large walk-in closet and access to a Jack and Jill bathroom, shared with Bedroom 2, through a sliding or pocket door. The walk-in closet is so large that it has to have its own window! The shared bathroom is on the interior of the home and can be used in case of severe weather as a safe spot.

Moving through the shared bathroom, you find yourself in the second bedroom. This large room has plenty of space for kids to grow into and has two windows that face the side of the home. Bedroom 2 also has a large walk-in closet. This space can be accessed either through the shared bathroom or from the short hallway holding the half bath.

Upper Level Living

If you are entering this plan from the 2-car garage, you will find yourself in a long hallway, where you will find a space with a bench with hanging storage that would be perfect for a mudroom. Straight ahead to the left, you can also access the stairs to the upper level. Here you will find a spacious bonus room below a stunning vaulted ceiling. An extra half bath is also located here for your convenience.

Massive Master Suite

The master suite is in the rear of the home and has plenty to offer. The master bedroom features a boxed ceiling that lends elegance and space to the room. Speaking of space, nothing makes a room feel more spacious than windows, and this master bedroom definitely delivers, with a triple window that looks out onto the rear of the home.

The master bath gives you everything you would need to relax after a hard day of work. It features a double vanity, a free-standing tub, and a corner glass shower. Don’t forget about the large walk-in closet! Not only does it give you plenty of space, but putting clothes away is a breeze because of the connecting door to the laundry room. Perfect for busy families, the laundry room has space for both a counter and sink, as well as storage over the washer and dryer to hang clothing.
