Homes for the Holidays: New House Plans Part 2
Christmas is always such a hectic time of year. We hustle and bustle until the actual day of and then we finally have time to spend with our loved ones. We usually spend the weekend before or the weekend after Christmas traveling to see our extended family. We would just host them at our house, but it’s a bit on the small side. If you’re like us, you wish you could have a bigger home or maybe one closer to the family. Maybe one of these new plans will inspire you to have you a new home for the next holiday season.
Homes for the Holidays – New House Plans.
Clearview Drive (SMN 1052)
This Contemporary Modern house plan by designer Seth M. Nelson has everything you are looking for in this style of home. This home design gives you just over 2,000 square feet of living space with 3 bedroom and 2 full baths. The exterior of the plan grabs your attention right away with its unique tiered roof line. The interior of the home is sure to please with an open floor plan that includes the living area, dining area and kitchen. Don’t forget about the huge master suite on the first floor that would be perfect for you to relax after a long day of work.
As you approach the home, the first thing that you notice is the unique tiered roof line. This is part of Seth’s signature look and can be found on several different plans within our Contemporary Modern collection. The materials used on the exterior of the home also lend it massive curb appeal with the combination of wood siding and brick to accent the large windows that are very prominent in this home.
As you enter the home from the covered front porch, you find yourself in the open floor plan that includes the large living area towards the front of the home, the dining area in the rear of the home and the kitchen in between them.
The living area gives you plenty of space to stretch out and relax. Because this plan is very open concept, it will be easy to decorate and change over the years. The living area features a large triple window that faces the front of the home.
The dining area is in the rear of the home in the open area of the floor plan. This dining area is perfect for entertaining or a quiet meal with the family. It also features a massive triple window that faces the rear of the home as well as a sliding glass door that leads to the covered porch on the rear of the home.
In between the dining area and the living area, the kitchen has loads of counter space and a raised bar for an informal eating space. The kitchen is “U" shaped and features a sink and dishwasher that face the living area, space for a large range along the right wall and a built-in pantry.
Moving further into the home, you will find the entrance from the garage and the laundry room. The laundry gives you space for hanging storage over the washer and dryer hookups and has plenty of space for sorting the inevitable mountain of clothes.
The master suite has everything you need to relax after a hard day of work. The master bedroom is absolutely massive and features another triple window that faces the side of the home. The master bath has space for a freestanding tub and a shower that is big enough for 2. Don’t forget about the walk-in closet that has built in shelving and can be accessed from the master bedroom.
The second floor gives you even more space with bedrooms 2 and 3. As you come up the stairs in the dining room, you find yourself in a loft that is open to the floor below and features windows that look out over the front of the home.
Bedroom 2 is at the front of the home and has a huge window that looks out in that same direction. This is part of that top tier that can be seen from the street as you come towards the home. This bedroom also features a double closet as well as two more windows that face the side of the home.
Bedroom 3 gives you a smaller window that looks out over the rear of the home and a small walk-in closet. These bedrooms share a hall bathroom.

The central portion of the home is occupied by the open floor plan including the great room, breakfast room and kitchen. The great room gives you high ceilings and features a fireplace along the right wall of the space as well as a large sliding door leading out to the grilling porch on the rear of the home.
The kitchen is separated from the great room by a large island. This island gives you bar seating for four and provides you a perfect place to wash up after the meal. The island has the sink and a place for the dishwasher built into it. This means that while you are cleaning up after supper, you can keep an eye on the comings and goings in the great room.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the breakfast/hearth room. This intimate space gives you windows on 3 sides that face the rear and sides of the home. This space is perfect for family gatherings or quick meals.
The last part of the home is the laundry room. This is directly across from the pantry and gives you ample space to take care of that never-ending chore. The laundry room also gives you hanging storage over the washer and dryer hook ups.
