The Manteo is a charming house plan with more than meets the eye. A wide covered porch, dual pitched roof, and barn door style garages gives this ranch house plan a farmhouse style update. The street view gives the home a modest look which opens up to ample space with the addition of a daylight basement on a downhill sloped lot.
Walking into the house from the cozy covered porch leads into a formal foyer. The blank walls surrounding the entrance are canvases to display welcoming art or family photos. From here, moving left will take you into the great room. First is the dining area, large enough to hold a grand and inviting dining room table. Open to the dining room is the kitchen, with long counters, kitchen island, and eating bar, this space will optimize meal prep while allowing the chef to stay in the party. Flowing from the dining room into the living room, the room opens up to soaring vaulted ceilings. A warm fireplace creates an impressive centerpiece and a relaxing place to gather.
Through the kitchen is a discrete hallway that leads to two bedrooms, a full bath, and a mudroom. The mudroom provides a transition point from the two-car garage into the house. Conveniently, the laundry room is just off the mudroom allowing containment of any outdoor mess. The two-car garage is entered from the front and has a little extra depth to allow for storage.
On the other side of the foyer, you will find the secluded and relaxing master suite. The master suite offers a private bath, walk-in closet, and French doors leading to the rear patio. From the foyer, you can also go downstairs into the daylight basement. This space holds a shocking amount of storage, a private guest suite, a home office or craft room, and a family room. The family room is a great place for entertaining with its own fireplace, beverage bar, and room for a pool table.
