Plan No.328512

Empty Nester

This delightful one-story cottage presents the ideal layout for empty-nesters, or for those approaching an empty nest. If that's you, then peruse this plan: A split-bedroom layout, that which places the master suite and secondary bedrooms on opposite sides of the plan, gives privacy and separation to older children and guests. What's more, the home also features a large dining room next to the kitchen. Now that you'll play host to college friends on the weekends and family and grandkids at the holidays, you'll make use of this roomy space with its high, light-spilling dormer. As you approach retirement age, you may be spending less time at the office, or you may be thinking about starting a 'dream' job. If so, the office next to the foyer will be indispensable, as well as tax deductible. There, double doors and built-ins impart a sense of style. You'll love the home's other spaces equally, including the airy great room, in which groups of furniture can be arranged around the fireplace at the back of the room and around optional media built-ins at the front of the room. Like the dining room, the bright breakfast nook is large and it connects to an outdoor patio, a tempting place to have an early morning repast. The master suite will remind you of the reason you've been saving your pennies all these years. Its rewards include a bump-out space in the bedroom for seating, a soothing spa tub, a spacious shower, and a large walk-in closet. And who said you wouldn't need as much storage space now that the kids are gone? Above the garage, you'll find a bonus room, as well as a big storage closet. Please note that, upon completion, this area would add 226 sq. ft. to the total finished area.
