The La Fayette is a country house plan that draws on some East Coast and coastal inspiration for its eye catching exterior. Shingle siding with stone accents and shutters along the front will have neighbors stopping for a second look.
While this design is well suited for any urban lot there are features of this home that would lend well to a vacation home or rental.
The welcoming wrap around porch adds to the country charm and creates a wonderful outdoor space to enjoy any view or simply watch the world go by. The front door opens to an airlock style foyer. This helps to keep the rest of the home a stable temperature and as a bonus helps to separate out the homes office from the rest of the living area. To the left of the front door the home office is accessible while a coat closet is on the opposite side. Through the airlock a second entry area has space enough for a drop zone or bench. To the right a pocket door opens to the main floor laundry room. To the left are stairs leading either down to the attached two car garage or further down to the unfinished basement.
The back of the floor plan is filled with the kitchen and formal dining and living rooms. The kitchen is large and is surrounded by cabinet storage and counter space along two walls. There is enough room in the kitchen for a nook in addition to the center island. Around the corner is the dining room. This formal dining area is large enough to allow for a buffet and can be opened to the back of the wrap around porch through the man door surrounded by windows.
A set of pocket doors separates the formal living room from the dining room. This window rich space features a fireplace along with built-in cabinets.
This four bedroom house plan has all of the sleeping areas on the second floor, adding to the formality of the gathering spaces on the main floor. In addition to the bedrooms, the second floor has an informal family room.
The master suite fills the entire left side of the second floor. This luxurious suite boasts two walk-in closet and large private bathroom with soaking tub, walk-in shower, twin sinks and private toilet. The rest of the bedrooms share a similar level of luxury. Each bedroom is a suite with private bathroom.
