Farmhouse Fabulous – The Westcott
This fabulous farmhouse style home by Living Concepts Frank Snodgrass, the Westcott (C-2604), brings both cottage and craftsman features into one great plan. Cottage does not equate with small and cute. Cottage associates with warm building materials of cedar shake, brick, stucco, stone and solid wood beams. Craftsman brings you stone accents, warm wood details inside and out, as well as low pitched roofs and wide overhangs. Farmhouse plans have long, deep front porches with some wrapping around the sides or to the back of the home. This home, seamlessly blends these 3 styles into a harmonious, welcoming plan.
Westcott Front – Farmhouse Fabulous
With 2604 square feet, 3 bedrooms and 2 bath in 2 stories of house, you can absolutely live ‘upstairs/downstairs’ perfectly. Your main floor boasts of large window spans and all the space you need to live and entertain. Your upstairs gives you all you need to relax, rest and revive. After you’ve gotten your comfortable chair and table or perhaps, a swinging bench set on your front porch, go inside to enjoy all this plan offers.
Foyer and Powder Room
Do you think vintage when you think farmhouse style? Do you think old and unkept? Think again. Farmhouse style lets you indulge your warm, welcoming, full of character décor. Embrace mixing and matching vintage and vintage looking pieces throughout the home. Start with the joy of surprising yourself. Think of vintage as fine aging. Let your old pieces tell stories and let the new pieces in your home write their own. Your foyer includes stairs to the second floor. It’s up to you if you want a framed staircase or open banister/bal.ustrades. Putting a small writing table and chair in the corner of stairs would be ideal here. On the left side of the foyer is a small powder room, the only bathroom on this floor.
Farmhouse Charm – Kitchen, Eating area and Family Room
Through the foyer, your kitchen, eating area and family room await. These spaces are open to each other and large in size. A fireplace anchors this gathering space and I can see a wood board sign perfectly above the fireplace. Surely, you, your family and friends will spend good times here . a door here leads out to your deck/patio area. Your kitchen has a U-shaped prep area with a lot of counter space. Not only does the eating area fit a table, but adding barstools to the peninsula side of your counter is perfect for casual eating or browsing a magazine (getting ahead on your dinner plans) with your morning coffee. A walk-in pantry is a plus in this kitchen. You’ll certainly enjoy all the backyard views from windows along the back of the house.
Farmhouse Charm – Deck/Patio
While the outdoor deck isn’t covered, you can certainly consider making it so. There is room for your outdoor cooking desires, a dining area and pots of plants. Embracing the charm of farmhouse style, maybe you’ll consider adding a water feature of an old pump looking fountain or build into your cooking space with a sink.
Farmhouse Charm – Dining Room and Living Room
Back in the house, walk through the swinging door between the kitchen and dining room. Notice the large, rear facing windows here that will flood light into the space. Holiday meals, Sunday night meals or any reason to sit in here will be perfect with a long wood table and bench seating. For this reason, your home will be the one everyone wants to dine in for the holidays. Through the large opening from the dining room into the living room, you’ll find space for your piano or maybe you’ll sit and play your favorite guitar here. Besides having plenty of space for your living room furniture needs you could make this a stylish office.
Farmhouse Charm – Your garage
You can’t forget the two-car garage. With this in mind, maybe you have a cute vintage 1950’s pick up truck parked that is ideal for runs to the apple orchard or hardware store. This house is built on a slab so your water heater is also in this space. Let’s go back into the house and head upstairs.
Farmhouse Fabulous – The Upstairs
Sleeping and Entertaining
To begin with, at the top of your stairs is a loft area that is open to your foyer below. This is the relaxing and revitalizing level in your daily life. Secondly, there are 2 bedroom suites, a laundry space and a large bonus room up here. Your guests or children’s suites each have a double door opening closet but no attached bathroom. The full bath that is shared by the 2 suites and bonus room area is at the back of the house. With a large bonus room, you can set up a theater area with reclining chairs and wide tv . Set up your office in this quiet corner. Incidentally, there is room for exercise equipment, a hobby corner, a snack area for a popcorn machine and fridge, or soft seating for book club nights and Sunday sports watching.
Your Master Retreat – Farmhouse Fabulous
The upper right side of this second floor holds your master retreat. You enter this stately suite through double doors. Surely, this master space and bath will start and end your day in the right tone. A double-sink vanity sits opposite your walk-in shower and separate tub. There is a closet for linens and toiletries to keep this space tidy and your needs convenient. The walk-in closet is large and has plenty of space for plenty of clothes, shoes and handbags. Consider a closet system with double hanging rods, cabinetry or even an island with plenty of storage underneath.
