That two can be better than one is evidenced by this attractive two-story design, Plan K-30, by the Homestore Plans and Publications Designers Network. Its floor plan has 1,621 square feet of living space.
Double arched front windows -- accented by a planter -- and twin gables over the front-facing double garage are two pairings that add to this home's classic look.
Inside, the living room and dining room are defined by a vaulted ceiling and an optional loft overhead. A back deck is just off the dining room.
The kitchen, with a snack bar and plenty of counter space, is equipped to handle gourmet meals or quick snacks. Plans are included for an optional breakfast nook.
An oversized walk-in closet and a compartmentalized bath with a garden tub and a dual-sink vanity make the master suite an appealing retreat.
