Stylish details, reminiscent of the Old World, grace the exterior of this modern day, European house plan. The exterior showcases an electric mix of stucco and stone complimented with a swooping roofline, wood trim, decorative windows and a turret-like element for extra flair. Furthermore, from the exterior, the second floor is not noticeable as it is hidden in the roof. While all these elements compose a stunning two-story home with elegant street appeal, the impressive exterior hides a thoughtful floor plan showcasing many of today’s most requested features for family living.
Stepping in from the covered entry, the foyer quickly introduces the galleria with open stair and views to the handsome balcony above. The galleria directs traffic to the great room anchored by a crackling fireplace flanked with built-ins. This comfortable space is ideal for everyday happenings and formal gatherings. Double doors open to the terrace extending the living areas outdoors. A huge island is the centerpiece of the kitchen which teams up with the breakfast room and overlooks the great room. This open arrangement encourages conversation and family time well spent, allowing the chef to prepare meals while being involved in other things going on in the living spaces. Strategically positioned, the kitchen serves both the breakfast room and formal dining room with equal ease. Don’t miss the walk-in pantry providing storage for bulk foods and small kitchen appliances. Double doors open to reveal the peaceful study, perfect for a home office. Closets provide plenty of storage and with the full bath nearby, this space easily converts to a guest suite when overnight visitors arrive. Organization is at hand with the mud room, laundry room and 3-car garage joining forces to keep things neat and tidy.
Designed for the home owner, the master suite is a secluded, pampering retreat decked with everything you’ll love and nothing you won’t want. You’ll appreciate private access to the terrace, ideal for stargazing with your loved one on a clear night. The master bath is brimming with fine appointments like dual vanities, a window soaking tub, roomy shower, compartmented toilet and walk-in closet made for two.
On the second floor, the balcony connects with three bedrooms suites. Each designed with its own bathroom, these bedrooms are perfect for teenagers and guests. The media room and game room are special retreats the whole family is sure to love. Create your own home theater in the media room or take part in a billiards game with friends in the game room. Notice the handy wet bar, just right for serving drinks and snacks. Finally, pay attention to the balcony gazing down on the kitchen. The tall ceiling here adds a sense of spaciousness.
Exquisite and stylish, this luxury European house plan will shine in any neighborhood.
