Reminiscent of the old days, Jones Farm perfect for family
Compact, the Jones Farm (D8011-HP67) is a farmhouse designed in the old sense of the word. It has shutters around the windows, barn-styled doors on the garage, a front covered porch, and the simplistic lines of the old farmhouses of our ancestors. The eye appeal is that of warmth and friendly welcome.
Crossing the covered porch, the front door opens into the entry facing the great room. On the left side is the formal dining room, separated from the great room by a dividing wall. On the left wall is a long built-in hutch, ideal for displaying family heirloom dishes, and the crystal of yesteryear.
A half bath is between the dining room and the living room. Backing up to the half bath is the pantry and a storage closet. Opposite is the utility room with a door opening into the garage in-between.
The kitchen is long and open to the living room and nook. The cabinets run down the entire outside wall, ending in a built-in desk. It gives an extreme amount of storage area. The island in the middle ties the kitchen to the living room. A see-through fireplace from the great room is visible from the kitchen and adds warmth to the rooms. The nook is in its own alcove, with a door opening out the backyard.
The great room is open and yet cozy with the see-through fireplace bathing the room in a warm glow. There are numerous windows in the back of the room that bathe the room in natural light. A stairway going upstairs and also to the optional unfinished 1,158 square foot basement is at edge of the great room.
All the bedrooms are located on the second floor. The master suite is in the rear with a large master bath. An oversized tub and a shower, with dual sinks grace the master bath, with a large walk-in closet adjacent. Bedrooms two, three, and four all have wall closets, large windows for extra light, and share a full bath with a tub and dual sinks. Off bedroom four is an optional unfinished storage room.
This plan is so traditionally a farmhouse that it stands out in its simplicity. It would be ideal for a large family, and with the basement, more bedrooms, a game room, and bathrooms could be added.
