If your tastes run to Tudor design and you want an estate-quality plan, this design will fill your needs. Half-timbering, a turret and an arched recessed entry lend enchantment on the outside. Spacious rooms and loads of amenities spell great livability on the inside. Look for both formal and informal rooms on the main level: a 1 1/2-story living room with fireplace, a family room with built-ins, a den with bay window, a breakfast nook and a formal dining room. A utility room with built-in ironing center sits near a full bath and opens to the four-car garage with shop space. A terrace wraps around the left side of the plan and offers shaded eating space. Two sets of stairs lead up to the second level, where there are a vaulted master suite and a huge bonus room. Bedroom 4 is also vaulted.

Some of the features of this home are 'European'. European homes come in many guises, since the term reflects homes styled after those in many countries; English Tudor, French Country, and Dutch Gable, to name a few. Beyond the country of origin, there's also the period of history from which the style emerged; Georgian, Victorian, Greek Revival; the list is almost endless. The homes shown in the collection below feature elements inspired by those found in countries across the Atlantic.
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.
We consider this home to be a Tudor or Storybook style home. We have a number of tudor and story book style home plans available in our collection, and many of our plans can be adapted easily to include tudor or storybook style elements to the exterior. Our tudor homes typically have steep pitched gable roofs, with half-timber decorations on the exterior. patterned brick-work or stone, stucco and multi-paned windows in groups are also common.
The tudor revival style became especially popular with 1920s suburban homes, loosely based on late medieval prototypes. Many tudor homes are identified with ornamental half-timbering to reflect the medieval construction technique. Tudor style homes often feature stucco or masonry veneered walls, steeply pitched roofs, and cross-gabled floor plans. The Storybook Style expands on the historical elements of the Tudor style, adding a medieval fantasy flavor. Castle turrets, copper embellishments of fantastical roof lines round out the vernacular.
The storybook style is a whimsical nod toward Hollywood design technically called Provincial Revivalism, and embodies much of what we see in fairy-tale storybooks, stage plays and in our favorite dreams.
