What’s old is new again. The elegant simplicity of this Colonial house plan will never become obsolete. Stunning details like the treatment of the windows and gables, plus the sturdiness of a brick exterior lends to its historic appearance. George Washington didn’t sleep here only because you haven’t built it yet. If he did, he would find plenty of room with four bedrooms on the second floor. He would be impressed by the modern interior, beyond the convenience of indoor plumbing, which by the way includes two full baths and laundry. Whether dining on mutton at the kitchen food bar or the dining room table, or warming himself at the great room’s fireplace, he would be at home with the warmth and coziness of this two-story home plan. What a great place to begin your own history.
