This home plan has it all! Enter your new home from the front and you begin to see why this is
such a nice layout. The large foyer area has a closet and through double french doors is a flex
room. This room could be a bedroom, den or a studio. Proceed into the kitchen area which is
open to the dining & great room. The kitchen has a walk-in pantry and an angled working
island with a lunch bar. Off the dining area is a double garden door leading to the covered rear
deck. There is a two-way gas fireplace set on an angle between the dining room & great room
for those cool winter days. The stairwell to the basement is open with railings. Just off the
front foyer is the mudroom/laundry room. There is closet and a place for coats hooks and
shoes. From here you can enter the 3-car garage. Continuing down the hallway there is a nice
sized bedroom next to a 3-piece bathroom with a linen closet. A large linen closet is also
located next to the master bedroom. Here you will find a large walk-in closet and a 4-piece
ensuite. The basement is undeveloped except for the mechanical room. This plan would work
well in town or on an acreage. 2011562
