How about that formal dining room that you haven’t set foot in since you hung up the last piece of artwork? Or the office that is now a make-shift storage room? Home buyers are drifting away from rooms and spaces that aren’t used for their intended purpose and requesting a more efficient floor plan that incorporates all of their favorite spaces. People want to multi-task in a space that merges work, play, relaxation and entertainment. Homes like the Kira, Rachel Marie and Brandi in our 1,700-square-foot family fit the bill perfectly.
The 1,700-square-foot family features a large, open living area that transitions to the kitchen with an eye-catching island and high bar. A wall of windows surrounding the dining area create a bright and airy space with views of the large, covered back porch. These open living features craft endless opportunities for family gatherings.
If you visit an older house, you’ll usually notice a kitchen that is completely isolated from the family area. This antiquated design feature was originally intended to keep the kitchen in a separate building in case of fires. It’s a good thing we’ve come a long way with fire protection and detection, because it’s pretty common for people to cook, eat and watch TV all in the same space. Multiple uses for the same space maximize the square footage of your home.
The 1,700-square-foot family also features two sizeable bedrooms in addtion to the master suite. This one-size-fits-all plan family is a perfect match for first-time buyers, growing families or empty-nesters.
