Cranberry (404-14)


The Cranberry (404-14) is a modest-sized house plan that delivers more for your building dollar. This 1,280 square foot beauty is ideal for a young family about to purchase their first home or for a couple close to retirement and wishing to downsize to a more manageable floor design.

Attractive wood siding and a large L-shaped covered porch impart a nice touch of permanence to this gem. The large two-car garage not only has a side door but direct access into the house via the utility room. This handy space houses the washer/dryer, has room for a freezer and contains a good-sized storage closet. An added advantage to the access to the garage is being able to carry groceries through to the kitchen without concern for the weather. Muddy clothes and shoes can be piled right here and left until your schedule permits a more thorough cleanup.

Two identical bedrooms are on the left side of this floor plan. Each has a nice view window and adequate closet space. A full bathroom is in the hallway.

The walk-through kitchen adds to the totally open effect emphasized throughout the home. The kitchen has all built-in appliances, plus a pantry and a garden window. Adjoining the kitchen is the vaulted dining room.

This arrangement allows meals to be served without delay. Sliding glass doors open onto a back deck that is big enough to set up a barbecue on a warm summer day.

The front entry takes you into the generous, vaulted living room, ideal for entertaining guests. A wide front window emits extra light, as well as provides a splendid view.

The isolated master suite occupies the entire right side of the home. This appealing suite features abundant closet space, separate vanity, linen storage and a choice of two options for private master bathroom.
