extravagance, dazzled with chateau-style
, makes this enormous traditional house plan
the epitome of luxury and charm. A dramatic display of windows and a glorious arched entrance beautify the exterior. Stately steps lead up the front porch to double doors, which open inside to the spacious two-story foyer. A dramatic staircase cascades into foyer, which is flanked on either side by the formal dining room and parlor. The dining room is defined by its outlying columns.
Straight ahead, the lofty two-story grand room is illuminated by a curved wall of windows at the rear. An enormous hearth warms the entire room and is flanked by built-in shelves. The cozy keeping room
, warmed by a second fireplace
, is open to both the casual bayed breakfast room and the gourmet island kitchen. The three-car garage is located nearby. The main level left-wing of this two-story house plan
is almost entirely devoted to the master suite, which provides a large master bath with a whirlpool tub and a huge walk-in closet.
Upstairs, all of the family bedrooms feature their private baths. The optional fifth bedroom can also be converted to a home office
and has a private bath.
