Pairs of peaked gables. Decorative brackets. Board-and-batten siding paired with wood shingles. These Craftsman embellishments make this multifamily duplex feel as personalized as a single-family home. The floor plan calls attention to its open kitchen, dining room, and living room layoutan arrangement thats attractive to contemporary homeowners because of its convenience. The foyer easily provides space for persons to hang coats and remove their shoes, thanks to a staircase entrance thats opposite the front door. The designs many other amenities, such as a walk-in pantry in the kitchen, a built-in desk and media center, a main-floor laundry room, and a kitchen island, are wish-list favorites.
While the main-level floor plans are the same, varied upper-level plans give builders and developers the opportunity to market the plan according to the life stages and demographics of their buyers. One upper-level plan features an arrangement ideal for a family: two secondary bedrooms have private vanities and share a bath and a toilet area. In the second plan, the upper level offers a second master suite, complete with dual-sink vanity and walk-in closet, as well as a large office area with built-ins. This layout works for singles who may share the space, work-at-home professionals, and couples caring for live-in relatives.
