Two Storey Home – 2800 to 3050 Square Feet
Ideal for separating entertaining areas of the home on the first floor from bedrooms on the second, two storey home plans offer flexible options for both play and privacy.
This model boasts an open-concept ranch-style first floor, without losing the space for bedrooms. The four bedrooms are found on the top floor with the option for a fifth in the place of an office.
Inside, from the expanse of the main foyer can be seen a remarkable solarium. The 9’ ceiling height of the main floor which boasts a large living room with corner fireplace, a nicely sized dining room and a laudable kitchen with central island and breakfast nook. A separate laundry area with powder room and a beautiful secondary living room which could serve as a fourth bedroom.
The split level to the second floor has access to a surprisingly large bonus space above the garage that would make an ideal space for a home theatre. The comfortably sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms , and an en-suite to the main bedroom which also has a walk-in closet, make the appeal of this home obvious.
As you can see, two storey house plans are very flexible and well suited to a variety of living situations. We typically think of a single family home with this layout. With two-storey homes, “building up” is the key. Stacking levels by building one on top of the other provides an opportunity to add square footage even when lot restrictions limit the width or depth of the home. This building method provides an opportunity to add a considerable amount of living space in the form of a second level.
Additionally, with lot sizes getting smaller and prices bouncing all over the place, two storey homes can be easier to place on your lot and still give you the design features you want in your new home.
