House of the Week: Stately brick or casual farmhouse with up-to-date floor plan

Whether you choose the stately brick design or a casual farmhouse alternative elevation, plan HMAFAPW01251 from will make an impressive statement on your block.

While the exterior elevations denote different traditional styles, the floor plan is up to date. With 2,858 square feet on two levels, the home provides plenty of space for family living and entertaining. A full, unfinished basement offers 1,439 square feet of additional space for future expansion.

Decorative ceiling treatments add special touches to the dining and family rooms. An open layout puts the spacious family room, with a fireplace, within easy reach of the island kitchen and breakfast nook. A small bay window dresses up the sink area, which looks out to the deck.

The dining room is separated from the hearth-warmed living room by columns. Enjoy quiet time in the study, secluded behind double doors just off the entry.

Upstairs, the master suite has a soaking tub, a separate shower, dual walk-in closets and twin sinks. Accessed through the bathroom, an optional exercise/sitting room adds 241 square feet to the total, and more possibilities for unwinding.

Three additional bedrooms share a full bath, and convenient laundry facilities can be located there.
