Marshall's great for narrow lot
Measuring in at just a little under 1,600 square feet, the Marshall is smaller than most four bedroom homes. Designed to fit on a small lot and relatively inexpensive to build, this floor plan still includes many features modern home buyers want, such as a vaulted master suite with private bath, vaulted great room/kitchen combination and indoor utility.
If the designers had placed a wall between the kitchen and great room, both spaces would seem cramped. Fortunately they didn't. They chose instead to let the work island provide partial separation thus creating a wide open feeling. Sliding glass doors at the back open onto a covered deck.
The Marshall's master suite has a large walk-in closet and a vanity with a mirror that never gets steamy, due to its location in the dressing area outside the water closet. The three other bedrooms share another similarly designed bathroom.
Utilities are tucked into a passageway between the bedrooms and the garage. A linen storage closet are in the hallway, conveniently close to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
