Families looking for a home that offers room to spread out along with an opportunity to age-in-place will enjoy the Victorian. True to its name, this luxury house plan is embellished with the elaborate styling of the late 19th century.
Gables and cupola create a roofline that enchants the eye. The wrap-around covered porch traces every angle of the front of the home. Around back, French doors from the family room open to a covered porch which leads to the gazebo.
Entering the grand foyer, the library and living room are to the left, while the dining room is on the right and a powder room is directly ahead, with a display alcove just outside. The uniquely shaped library is filled with natural light and is elevated by a few steps from the rooms nearby.
A second octagonal shaped alcove expands the already large kitchen. Spending time in this bright space bright and early in the morning might even make you feel like you could skip your morning coffee or tea. A cooktop and prep sink are built into the large work island.
If open-style living is preferred the wall that divides the kitchen and family room could be reduced and converted into an eating bar.
On the second floor, the Victorian's owners' suite has a private fireplace, balcony, captains walk, and sitting room. The owners' bedroom features a spacious walk‑in closet, soaking tub, oversized shower, and two toilets.
The top of the staircase has a view of the foyer below. Three additional bedrooms, another big bathroom plus a game room are also upstairs, along with a completely equipped caretaker's quarters. The caretaker's quarters feature a private suite with walk-in closet, kitchen with living area and private entrance from stairs that run along the back of the three-car garage.
