Enjoy sweeping views all year from the comfort of your covered front porch in the Dahlia, a versatile ranch home plan that’s suited nicely for a rural lot with acreage, or in a suburban subdivision.
Hip and gabled roofing with striking composition shingles, a lap sided exterior highlighted by sets of double-pane windows, and stone veneer wainscoting with matching front posts make this one-story home plan popular with builders and homeowners’ alike.
There’s plenty of charm inside, too. The front entrance opens to an entry hallway with doors on all sides. Open double doors on the left to find a flexible den that’s easily converted into a spacious home office, library or family room, with a sliding closet providing storage space and front-facing windows to let in sunlight. Doors on the right side of the entry open to a pair of generously sized secondary bedrooms, each with ample closet space, and a shared full bathroom.
The entry winds ahead past a coat closet, where it approaches the heart of the home: an expansive kitchen, dining and living room. Sharing walls and windows, these open gathering spaces create a grand common area for cooking, enjoying family meals and entertaining guests. Kitchen appliances, countertops and a walk-in pantry wrap around two walls, while a kitchen island and flush eating bar allow for creative uses of the dining room if desired. While no walls separate these rooms, a tray ceiling, ability to change flooring types and a fireplace set the living room apart from the kitchen and dining room. And there’s even more space to entertain guests or relax with family outdoors, through a door in the rear dining room wall that opens out to a vaulted, covered back patio and yard beyond.
Head back through the dining room and towards the entry. Here a hallway branches off to the left side of the home, passing storage closets and a utility room. The hallway ends at a door that opens to reveal the luxurious, secluded owners’ suite. The split bedroom plan places the suite on the opposite side of the home from the common spaces and secondary bedrooms, adding to the suite’s privacy. Windows on two walls soak the bedroom in natural light. And the owners’ bathroom features a large shower, roomy walk-in closet, double sink vanity, and private toilet.
Back in the hallway, a sliding door opposite the owners’ suite entrance leads to the utility room, which includes a washer, dryer, and sink. The utility room passes through to a large attached two-car garage, connected back to the Dahlia’s covered front porch.
