MEN 5020

From award-winning designer Michael E. Nelson comes a stunning Bay house plan added to our Farmhouse House Collection. Designed to accommodate the entire family, Charleston Bay offers 3437 sq.ft. of living space, with a 1295 sq. ft. In-Law Suite included in the total living space, and 6 bedrooms and 4 full baths. This traditional, rustic-style home creates a country feel with the large wraparound porch and three gable dormers beside a beautiful stone chimney.

Open Floor Living

The main living space of Charleston Bay features an open layout, with a stunning boxed ceiling above the spacious Great Room greeting you as you walk inside. A cozy fireplace appears to the left, while the stairs leading up to a massive game room, the ultimate hangout space for the kids, is found just ahead of the front door.

Separate from the Great Room but also open to the space is a charming Kitchen/Dining space. To the right is the Kitchen, complete with a modest walk-in pantry, and a large, uniquely shaped bar counter. This bar offers seating for 4, as well as a sink and dishwasher. Looking out from the Kitchen, you will find a cozy Dining area, where tall windows on all three walls give you the perfect amount of natural light for family meals. Just behind the bar seating is a simple Breakfast Nook, which enjoys a calming view of the screened porch outside to start off your mornings right.

Exiting this space toward the rear of the Charleston Bay home plan, you will find a brief hallway, which consists of a quaint storage closet to the right, entry to the screened porch on the left, and the laundry room just ahead. From the Laundry Room, with plenty of counterspace for folding and a convenient sink, you can access the spacious 3-car garage through a space perfect for a mudroom, complete with a bench with hanging hooks. The In-Laws Suite can also be reached from here.

Split Bedroom Floor Plan

Back in the Kitchen space, the bedrooms of Charleston Bay can be found in the hallway to the right. While entry to Bedroom 4 is found just off the beginning of this hallway, Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located at the very end. Each room enjoys a modest closet, and Bedroom 4 can also be used as a study, if desired. Down this hall is also a linen closet for extra storage, as well as a full bathroom, complete with a single-sink vanity, a toilet, and tub/shower combo.

Luxury Master Suite

At the very front of the Charleston Bay house plan, beside the front door, you will find entry to the spacious Master Suite. The master bedroom sits below a gorgeous boxed ceiling, and two front-facing windows will ease your morning wakings with the perfect amount of natural light. From the bedroom toward the rear of the home plan, you will step into a brief entryway flanked by spacious his and her closets. Straight ahead is the luxury Master Bath, featuring two separate vanities, a corner glass shower, and a private toilet room. All this makes early morning rushes a little less crazy!

In-Law Suite

Although connected to the home, the 1295 sq.ft. In-Law Suite is like a private apartment, complete with a covered front porch and screened rear porch, a large great room with a stunning 10-foot boxed ceiling, and a Kitchen with an eat-at L-shaped counter. The boxed ceiling continues into the master suite, which enjoys a spacious walk-in closet in the bedroom, as well as a Master Bath featuring a dual vanity and a roll-in shower. Toward the front of this apartment is also an extra bedroom, and a full bathroom shares a hallway with both bedrooms.
