Combine an eye-catching, rugged exterior with a luxurious open layout, and you've got Plan HMAFAPW-1702 from Homeplans.com.
Past the foyer, the dining room is delineated by columns on the right. Ahead, the family room displays a tray ceiling and great views of the rear lanai. It's easy to entertain in this space; just pass snacks over the kitchen's bar.
An island in the center of the kitchen gives extra prep space, so guests can sit and sip (or even help chop) at the bar while you finish up dinner and chat. A walk-in pantry keeps everything close at hand.
When you feel like grilling, head out to the barbecue porch, where a two-sided fireplace warms up chilly nights.
Your master suite sits on the left side of the home, boasting a private exercise room (convert it into an office or sitting room if you like), walk-in closet, and a large separate shower and tub.
Across the home, two secondary bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath. Another suite, ideal for guests, waits near the front.
Optional bonus space upstairs could be turned into an entertainment hub, with room for billiards, games and even a media room.
The home features 2,847 square feet of space on the main level, plus the 934-square-foot bonus space upstairs.
