Thankful for New Plans
One of the things that is so stressful to me this time of year is traveling back and forth to relatives’ houses. I hardly ever host Thanksgiving dinner at my house because, well, my house is a bit too small for everyone to be crowding into. Usually we end up at my aunt’s or my mom’s which are both over an hour away from where we live. The best part of the drive is listening to the kids try to sing the songs that come over the radio. The littlest one hasn’t quite figured out how to pronounce a lot of the words yet, so it makes it interesting to hear.
Here at Nelson Design Group, we hope that your holiday is filled with joy and that you and your family get to spend loads of time together. I know that what we plan to do. In the meantime, take a look at some more of our brand-new house plans!
Heritage Manor (NDG 1670)
This traditional house plan gives you just under 2,700 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms and 4 full baths. This home has tremendous curb appeal with its mix of exterior elements. The exterior of this home has a mixture of stone and board and batten siding with a white covered porch. On the inside of this home, you will find a giant master bedroom and master bath, an open floor plan that includes the great room, kitchen and dining room and a lovely bedroom on the third floor with its own bathroom.
As you approach the home, the first thing that you notice is the mixture of exterior elements that gives this home such a lovely curb appeal. The home has stonework as well as traditional board and batten siding and a lovely covered front porch.
Entering the home from the front porch, you find yourself in the foyer. The foyer is open to the second floor which gives the home depth and character. The foyer has access to the stairwell that goes to the second floor as well as a full bathroom right inside the door.
On the left of the foyer is a flex room. This room can be used as a guest room, an office, another bedroom, a workout space, etc. The sky is the limit here and with the charm of a vaulted ceiling and large picture window facing the front of the home, you really can do no wrong. This flex space also offers you access to that full bathroom and a walk-in closet.
On the right side of the foyer is a guest room/ study. This room features a more private in-suite bathroom and a smaller closet. It also has a large double casement window that looks out over the front of the home and the covered porch.
Moving further into the home, you will find yourself in an open floor plan that includes the great room, kitchen and dining room. The great room is open to the second floor and has a large fireplace along the right wall. The rear wall of the great room is dominated by two French doors that lead out onto the grilling porch on the rear of the home.
The kitchen is separated from the great room by an island that gives you seating for 4. This island is also the perfect place to clean up after a large meal. It features a sink and dishwasher where you can clean up and still keep an eye on the comings and goings in the great room.
The rest of the kitchen gives you plenty of counterspace so that you can prep your meals and has space for a large range. The kitchen also gives you access to a large pantry. When I say large, I mean its big. This pantry is probably my favorite part of this space.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room. The dining room has windows along two of the walls that will give a great view of your property. It also features a charming vaulted ceiling to make entertaining more intimate. The dining room also has a sliding door that opens onto the grilling porch on the rear of the home.
On the other side of the home, you will find the laundry room and kid’s nook. The kid’s nook comes directly from the garage and has both a closet and space for storage bins and hanging storage. This is great for when you want to come in and get those coats and boots off before moving into the rest of the home.
The laundry room is accessed from the kid’s nook. It gives you a corner countertop that is great for sorting and folding. The laundry room also features a large sink for soaking those really bad stains and hanging storage over the washer and dryer.
The remainder of the first floor is occupied by the master suite. The master bedroom gives you high boxed ceilings and a large picture window facing the rear of the home. This room also has a private entrance to the grilling porch. The master bedroom is huge. It’s almost the same size as the great room so you can definitely fit that California King size bed in there.
The master bath gives you a double sink, a free-standing tub and a glass shower with a seat. Don’t forget about the walk-in closet! This large closet gives you plenty of storage space no matter how many pairs of shoes you find on sale.
The second floor features the third bedroom and a bathroom. The stairs open up and lead you past the theater style balcony that overlooks the great room on the first floor. The bedroom on the second floor gives you a double casement window that faces the front of the house and a small closet with its own window. The bath has a double sink and can be accessed from either the bedroom or the hallway.
Jasmine Manor (MEN 5226)
This stunning house plan is from award winning designer Michael E. Nelson. It is the newest in his MEN Collection. This Contemporary Modern House Plan gives you 1,438 Square Feet of living space with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It also features a lovely 2 bay garage facing the front of the home.
This home greets you with gorgeous curb appeal. The Contemporary Modern feel to the home is evident as soon as you lay your eyes on it. This home gives you a very low roof line and maintains a lower profile throughout.
As you enter the home through the front porch you find yourself in a lovely open floor plan. The foyer, great room, kitchen and dining room all occupy the same space making this home great for entertaining. The foyer leads straight into this space that features a large brickwork fireplace along the eastern wall of the home.
The front of the home features a large double casement window. The kitchen is nestled in the rear of this space and gives you a large counterspace with plenty of room for prepping large meals. The kitchen also features a large central island that gives you bar seating for 4. Notice the window over the kitchen sink.
The dining area gives you an entrance to the grilling porch located on the rear of the home as well as a large double casement window that faces the east side of the home. This gives you a perfect place to sit and enjoy a good meal after a hard day of work.
Moving further into the home you find the pantry and laundry room. The pantry is located in the hallway and large enough for all of your storage needs. The laundry room has space for both of your appliances and gives you a secondary entrance into the home from the garage.
Further down the hall you will find the hall bathroom which features his and hers sinks that give plenty of room for everyone to get ready in the morning. This bathroom is accessible for both bedrooms 2 and 3. Speaking of those rooms, they both give you room for large walk-in closet space and each feature a single window facing the west side of the home.
The master suite features 10’ boxed ceilings and a massive picture window on the rear of the home. The master bath gives you his and hers sinks and a privacy divider between the sinks and the rest of the room with pocket doors. The master suite gives you two large walk-in closets as well as a small hallway for storage.
This home gives you plenty of space for a growing family or is perfect for that next stage in your life.
Eastern Falls (NDG 1656)
This traditional house plan gives you just over 1,500 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The exterior of the home gives you great curb appeal with the lovely gables in the roof and the board and batten siding with wooden shingles as accents. Inside the home, you will find an open floor plan with a great room, kitchen and breakfast room that gives you plenty of room for entertaining. The master suite is stately with a large master bath that allows you to relax after a long day.
As you approach the home, the first thing that you notice is the lovely roof line. This traditional house plan gives you such lovely gables on the front of both the home and the garage. As you step into the home through the covered front porch, you find yourself in the foyer.
To the right of the foyer you will find the study/bedroom 2. This bedroom gives you a large window that faces the front of the home and a standard sized closet. Just past this bedroom is the hall bath that is shared by bedrooms 2 and 3. Bedroom 3 gives you a window facing the side of the home and a standard size closet.
On the rear of the home you will find the master suite. The master bedroom features stately boxed ceilings with a window facing the rear of the home. The master bedroom also has a private exit to the grilling porch on the rear of the home.
The master bath gives you plenty of amenities. It features a double vanity, a whirlpool tub with a lovely ledge for storage and a shower stall. Don’t forget about the large walk-in closet!
The central portion of the home is occupied by the open floor plan including the great room, breakfast room and kitchen. The great room gives you high ceilings and features a fireplace along the right wall of the space as well as a large sliding door leading out to the grilling porch on the rear of the home.
The kitchen is separated from the great room by a large island. This island gives you bar seating for four and provides you a perfect place to wash up after the meal. The island has the sink and a place for the dishwasher built into it. This means that while you are cleaning up after supper, you can keep an eye on the comings and goings in the great room.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the breakfast/hearth room. This intimate space gives you windows on 3 sides that face the rear and sides of the home. This space is perfect for family gatherings or quick meals.
The last part of the home is the laundry room. This is directly across from the pantry and gives you ample space to take care of that never-ending chore. The laundry room also gives you hanging storage over the washer and dryer hook ups.
