The Laurel, a two-story, four-bedroom, cottage style house plan, has a comfortable amount of living space for a growing family. The street view of the house has a welcoming feel, with quaint window shutters and a cozy covered front porch.
Directly through the front door, off the entry foyer is a den. This room would also make for a convenient home office or a relaxing library. To the other side of the foyer is a mudroom style hallway. With built-in storage, access to the laundry room, and a half bath, this hallway allows for easy clean up before heading into the rest of the house. The mud-hall also includes access to the home's two-car garage.
Going straight through the foyer, past the stairs, the home opens up to the living area. The living room and dining room are two distinguished spaces, but the rooms are still open enough to allow a conversation to be had from either space. An impressive, two-sided fireplace creates the barrier between the two rooms. The kitchen is just off of the dining room. The u-shape provides ample counter space and storage, especially with the addition of an island at the center. Opposite the kitchen, at the other side of the dining room, is an exit out to a covered porch. The covered porch is spacious enough to enjoy an outdoor meal or BBQ.
The upstairs provides additional living space with a large bonus room sitting above the garage. The bonus room can be used as an additional bedroom or guest room if needed. It would also make for a great game, media, or hobby room. Two standard bedrooms are also on the second floor. Each bedroom has a step-in closet and there is a full bath for the two to share.
The master suite is also located on the second floor. The master suite only shares a closet wall with any other space, providing the most privacy available for all bedrooms being on the same floor. The master bath includes dual vanities, a soaking tub, and an impressively large closet.
