Unique and Luxurious European Home Design – The House Plan Shop

European House Plan 043H-0236A house plan this grand might be mistaken for Downton Abbey, but rest assured it would make a fabulous home anywhere. If you are planning to build on a scale like this, you are without a doubt studying the many luxurious features very carefully. There is certainly nothing plain or simple here from the shapes of the rooms to the placement of the stairs. But please notice even in all its lavishness, it delivers a great house plan that is user friendly especially in the small details. Just off the kitchen lies a family gathering hall, away from the formality of the reception hall and grand foyer. Outside the kitchen, an herb garden provides the freshest ingredients for family meals. Upstairs the student’s retreat provides peaceful privacy for a developing mind. Imagine yourself walking through the rooms of this opulent home and notice that you are never very far from one of the eight bathrooms, even if you are at the pool or in the garage. This European-styled, two-story design certainly exhibits extravagance with purpose.

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.

Whether it’s located on the beach, lakeside or in the middle of an enchanted forest, this unique home plan with a view can only bring a smile to your face. Oh yes, leaving the lights on is optional.
