Charming L-shaped front porch and stone accents lend a welcoming look to this farmhouse plan. The Houston home plan is an idyllic, two story house design that is equally well-suited for the country or city.
The large covered front and side porch could house a porch swing or other outdoor furniture. Inside the spacious foyer there are two coat closets and enough room for a bench. Around the corner is a convenient half bathroom and laundry room.
To the left, the floor plan opens up to the dining room. Casual and roomy the dining room’s rear wall is richly windowed and offers access to the backyard. The dining room is completely open to the kitchen with an island that provides some visual separation of the spaces. The island includes a built-in eating bar adding to the available seating if more is needed. The kitchen then opens up to the living room which is naturally bright from the trio of windows along the front wall.
All three bedrooms in this small house plan are on the second floor. The larger of the bedrooms has a walk-in closet and serves as the master bedroom. All of the bedrooms share the second floor’s full bathroom that is furnished with twin sinks, a soaking tub, and separate shower.
The compact footprint of the Houston at only 32’ wide makes it a great design for those building on smaller city lots. However this narrow lot house plan would also work well on rural property.
