The Parson is an attractive, functional traditional house plan suitable for a growing family. Symmetric patterns with shuttered windows and columned front porch add colonial style to the front exterior.
The first floor is all living space. At the entry, just off the foyer, is a flex space. Depending on what suits the family best, the room could be a formal dining room, a home office, or library. The living room is open and casual, opening up into the kitchen. The living space is warmed by a cozy fireplace which the family can gather around. Off the back of the living is the exit out on to a deck. The kitchen is spacious, L-shaped, wrapping around a central kitchen island with an eating bar. A breakfast nook sits at the back of the kitchen, surrounded by windows and bathed in natural light. At the back of the kitchen is a discrete mudroom area with the laundry room and a half bath. As the transition space between the home and the 2-car garage, this area is optimal for keeping the home clean and organized.
The U-shaped stairs at the foyer lead to the second level, which is all bedrooms. Two standard bedrooms are separated by a full bath to share. The front bedroom is slightly larger and includes a walk-in closet. The master bedroom takes up the other side of the house. The master suite includes a dual vanity, bathtub and separate shower, and a walk-in closet.
