This week’s house plan

This week’s plan shows a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath European Mini-Estate.

There’s a lot to like in this one-story design. With 2,916 square feet of living space on one level, there’s plenty of room to spread out and live large.

The kitchen island is designed to seat five people and curves around so they can all talk to one another. This area opens to the conversation room, featuring a fireplace, windows and sliding doors to the backyard.

When it’s time for dinner, head to the living and dining zone, which also leads outside.

A media room can become almost anything: home theater, office or craft room are just a few possibilities.

Three bedrooms grace the right side of the plan. The deluxe master suite offers a tray ceiling, sliding glass doors to the outside, a dressing area, dual walk-in closets, a double-bowl vanity and a compartmented toilet. The sunken shower area is highlighted with glass blocks. A garden whirlpool tub finishes off this area.

Extra storage in the garage will come in handy. And a full basement can be finished later or used for additional storage.
