A large great room and linked living areas give a surprising sense of spaciousness to the compact Craftsman-style house plan. At slightly more than 1600 square feet, the Pineville design is an ideal starter home for young families. Being a single story home, it is equally well-suited to empty nesters wanting to downsize their maintenance responsibilities.
Craftsman accents include the iconic gridded upper windows, a matching door, and three low-profile front-facing gables. The porch is large enough for a relaxing porch swing or outdoor furniture.
From the entry, you can proceed directly ahead to the great room, or turn right into the richly windowed nook. A sliding door offers separation between the nook and kitchen, when needed. Counters wrap around four sides of the kitchen, which is open to the dining area, across a peninsular raised eating bar.
Natural light spills into the dining room through a set of windows on the right, as well as the sliding glass doors at the rear. This offers access to a partially covered patio. The left side of the dining room is open to the great room, where more light flows in through windows that fill most of the rear wall.
Closets for coats, storage, and linens line the hallway leading to the bedrooms and a pass-through utility room with garage access. The owners' suite features a two-section bathroom and a walk-in closet.
