Luxuriously large and comfortably relaxed, this eye-catching lodge home plan offers half again as much living space in its detached garage. Multipaned windows fill most of one wall in a spacious living room that's open to the kitchen. In the owners' suite, soft natural light illuminates the spa tub's bayed alcove.

Luxurious Everheart fits modern tastes
The Everheart is handsome, luxuriously large and comfortably relaxed. And despite boasting 4,100 square feet of living space, plus nearly 2,000 square feet of detached garage, the front facade is decidedly unpretentious. Eye-catching features include: stone veneer wainscoting, multipaned windows and a collection of variously sized gables.
Entering, you step into a wide, lofty foyer, naturally illuminated by windows, sidelights and overhead dormers. Art showcased on the gallery wall separating foyer and great room will need spotlighting only at night.
Multipaned windows fill most of the spacious great room's rear wall, and a 14-foot ceiling adds to the feeling of expansiveness. Many families may prefer to use this space as a family room. It's open to the kitchen, with a raised conversation bar marking the boundary.
Working at the L-shaped counter, or the cook top island, you can easily be a part of goings-on in the larger space. The nook is handy for day-to-day meals, while the vaulted dining room stands ready for festive occasions. A built-in hutch fills most of one wall.
When day is done, the owners can retreat to the Everheart's deluxe master suite, and soak away stress in the roomy spa tub. During the day, soft light washes into the bay that houses the spa tub, plus an oversized shower. Other amenities include: a den (or home office), two large walk-in closets, and a private patio.
Two more complete bedroom suites are upstairs, plus a computer loft with a built-in desk. Each of the bedrooms has a roomy walk-in closet plus its own bathroom.
A breezeway links the house to a three-car garage with plenty of extra storage space above it.
