Craftsman accents, including stone, shingles and a shed dormer, lend timeless appeal to the exterior of this home, Plan K-24, by the Homestore Plans and Publications Designers Network. Its floor plan has 1,725 square feet of living space.
The floor plan is no less alluring. A sidelighted entry leads past decorative columns into the central living room; a fireplace flanked by windows warms this gathering space.
A porch fronts the sidelighted entry that has columns dividing it from the living room. A den is accessible from both the entry and the sleeping wing, which includes a front-facing bedroom and a large master suite with a private bath. The living room adjoins a dining room and the galley-style kitchen that has a breakfast bar. A screen porch nearby offers another dining option. Utility areas adjoining the two-car garage complete the plan.
The adjoining dining nook receives light through a window wall and an adjacent screen porch -- a nice spot for hot, breezy days. The porch also allows the family to enjoy outdoor meals without bugs.
A raised breakfast bar wraps around the kitchen's countertop, hiding meal-preparation mess from guests. The kitchen is roomy enough for heavy traffic, but compact enough to make it a functional working area. It has nearby laundry facilities and a pantry.
The large master bedroom features a focal-point bay window with a built-in seat, plus a compartmentalized private bath and access to a back patio. Down the hall, a secondary bedroom and a den share a full bath.
