A generous use of stone creates a rustic yet welcoming look to the ranch house plan, the Manor Heart. The side entry garage is ideal for construction on a corner lot.
Slender posts frame the front covered porch that shelters guests from the weather and also creates a wonderful place to sip a beverage and watch the world go by. Stepping through the front door the entry hall offers a coat closet on the right and room for a bench if desired. A set of French doors, off the entry, opens to the den. The den provides flex space to this one story house plan. Its proximity to the front door makes it an ideal space for a home office.
Down the entry hall, the floor plan opens up to the vaulted great room. The open concept living room only has minor separation between the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The great room features a fireplace that is surrounded by built-ins. To help separate the dining room from the hall that traverses the home is a post. The dining room is open to the great room and offers a sliding glass door to access the covered deck and backyard. Open to the dining room, the kitchen completes the great room. It is spacious offering counter space on three sides plus a center island and walk-in pantry.
