Waterfront House Plans
About Waterfront House Plans & Waterfront Home Floor Plans...
Designed for living at the water’s edge, typical Waterfront house plans are suitable for shorelines of inland bodies of water such as rivers, lakes and streams. They are positioned on their lots to take advantage of a waterfront setting and generally blend with their natural surroundings, encourage the enjoyment of nature, and offer stunning views of the landscape. Waterfront house plans often feature plenty of large windows and outdoor living spaces such as sweeping decks and balconies overlooking an expansive view. These designs can be one or two stories and range in size from a small log cabin to a luxury, lakefront home with all the amenities. Furthermore, they are available in a multitude of architectural styles. Vacation homes, Beach houses, and A-Frame house plans are closely related to waterfront house plans.
Waterfront homes are shoreline floor plans that can be used for permanent or secondary residences. They include lakefront properties, coastal homes and stilt house plans. Similar to beach houses and other oceanfront properties, some waterfront floor plans are built on pilings or a pier foundation with a parking area underneath the home. This ensures the main living areas are raised one level to accommodate potential rising waters when creeks, rivers and lakes overflow their banks during rainy periods. When built on piers or pilings, water can flow underneath the home without and damage or risks to the home or belongings inside it. Other waterfront house plans are designed for a sloping lot and offer a walkout basement with access to the yard or patio from the lower level of the home. Sometimes the lower level is finished and features a wall of windows arranged to capture panoramic views of a lake or river behind the home. In some instances, waterfront houses work well as beach homes and seaside designs. However, they are not necessarily designed to withstand the elements associated with marine climates and oceanfront property. Whether simple in design or amenity-rich, Waterfront house plans are sure to inspire enjoyable living at the water’s edge.
