*Plans are drafted to meet average conditions and building codes in Nebraska, Ohio, and Texas at the time they are designed (contact us for more information). Because codes and requirements can change and may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the designers cannot warrant compliance with any specific code or regulation. All plans can be adapted to your local building codes and requirements. It is the responsibility of the purchaser and/or builder of each plan to see that the structure is built in strict compliance with all governing municipal codes (city, county, state, and federal).
A blend of stone and stucco combine to create a warm and sunny exterior to this Mediterranean house plan. The Jensen Chase is a single family home plan that is sure to have the neighbors stopping for a second look.
The front door is recessed from the front of the home adding some protection from the elements. Stepping inside the entry is spacious and large enough for a bench if desired. Immediately the entry opens up to the great room that fills the back of the floor plan.
The open concept living area is ideal for those who prefer informal gatherings and family living. Kitchen, family room and dining room are open to each other with no to limited separation allowing conversations to flow freely between all three rooms. In the corner of the family room is a cozy fireplace, sure to be the center of attention on cold, winter evenings. The kitchen provides ample counter work space and cabinet storage. Providing some separation from the family room and dining room is a work island complete with eating bar. A cased opening off the kitchen leads to a hallway. The walk-in pantry is just on the other side of this hallway. From the dining room you can access the backyard and the optional covered deck.
Across the hallway from the kitchen is a mud hall. Connection the home to the attached 3 car garage, the mud hall is furnished with a bench, drop zone and coat closet. It also provides access to the laundry room.
The left side of the floor plan is completed with the owners’ suite. Decorated with a tray ceiling, the owners’ suite is a wonderful retreat and has a private bathroom and large walk-in closet that has direct access to the laundry room.
Back at the entry, a cased opening on the right leads to the secondary bedrooms. Both rooms share a full bathroom that also serves the living area. The separation between the owners’ suite and secondary bedrooms in this three bedroom home plan is ideal for families with older children or who entertain serving as guest rooms.
