Cottage Style Home with Vaulted Great Room and Fireplace
The volume roofline on this plan is a lovely complement to its recessed entry and Craftsman details. The one-story floor plan begins with a den just to the left of the entry, through double doors. Take your choice of a built-in desk or closet for this private retreat. Further along is the kitchen (with a walk-in pantry) and attached nook (with sliding glass doors to a covered patio). The vaulted great room is nearby and is enhanced with a fireplace and media center. The master suite is also vaulted and tucked behind the two-car garage with shop space. A heavenly master bath pampers with a spa tub, separate shower and double sinks. Bedroom 2 has its own bath and built-in bookshelves at its entry. A closet and a storage area sit just across the hall. The laundry room separates the two bedrooms and offers access to the garage. The dining room, den and Bedroom 2 all have nine-foot ceilings.
Architectural Styles Associated with this design
This home is a gorgeous example of one of our craftsman houseplans. In the mid-1970s, a revivalism of sorts began among American collectors and preservationists. Pottery, glassworks, furniture, lighting, and houses from the turn of the 20th century were rediscovered and being celebrated for their simplicity of design and traditional beauty. These artistic remnants of the Arts and Crafts movement, which thrived from 1876-1915 continue to be celebrated today.

Our traditional style houseplans comprise a neo-eclectic style borrowing details from historic styles and adapting to contemporary forms and materials - i.e.: Colonial porches and columns, Tudor half-timber, French steeply pitched hip roof and arched windows, Georgian entry doors or Victorian porch spindle work. Wood exteriors combined with brick or stone trim.
Traditional homes freely borrow from a number of historic styles and combine them to relay a new expression. Many historic styles are also 'traditional' in nature, and are incorporated into the Mascord Collection. Colonial, Tudor, Craftsman, Cape Cod - in this collection of home plans you'll discover floor plans that reflect modern lifestyles with spacious rooms, flexible spaces and modern conveniences, but mixed with distinct architectural flair, curb appeal and modern aesthetic. Expect elements such as free-flowing kitchens, breakfast nooks, and family room combinations.
