This week’s house plan

The second floor of a cozy country home.

The appeal of this home comes from the porch that wraps all the way around. With this much outdoor living space, there’s always a spot to watch the sunset, sip iced tea or simply enjoy a beautiful day.

Inside, 1,673 square feet of living space awaits.

The great room opens to the kitchen and breakfast nook to maximize interaction across the spaces. A fireplace lends its glow, and windows offer views of the porch. There’s room for three at the snack bar, making it a handy spot for a quick breakfast.

Family bedrooms on this floor share a full bath and are separated from the master suite on the second floor.

Featuring its own private balcony and walk-in closet, the master bedroom also has a complete bath with a separate shower and tub. A loft or study area that overlooks the great room completes this retreat.
