The Glendale Plan- Comfort in a Cottage

The Glendale Plan- Comfort in a Cottage by Living Concepts should bring you just that- comfort. Imagine that you are on that wide covered, front porch, feet up, book in hand, something cool to drink. The six columns frame the front door as well as the mullioned windows. Above, there are three gable dormers whose arched windows complement the window on the garage. Horizontal siding completes the cottage feel.

   The First Floor Basics

First, the three-car garage is on the left side of the home. A door on the right opens up inside the home. Then, to your immediate right, a door takes you to the stoop, or small porch. Another perk of this garage is the storage room found at the far end.

Next, you enter the home from the covered porch. Straight ahead is the foyer, with stairs going up to the second floor. A closet is under the stairs. The powder room is on the right after the foyer. Before that, your living room is on the right and the formal dining room is on your left. Both rooms have fireplaces.

   The First Floor Basics and More

Next, when you walk from the dining room towards the back of the house, you will find cabinets on either side of the door. This is where you would keep your “fine” China and serving dishes, perhaps, for the evenings when you want to celebrate an event with friends and family. There are also cabinets (or shelves, if you prefer) on the right wall walking from the living room to the family room.

Then, the family room also has a fireplace. There is room for shelves on both sides of the fireplace. A door on the back wall leads onto the second covered porch. Another door from the porch goes into the breakfast or sunroom, where you can watch hummingbirds zipping around your feeders or flowers.

   The First Floor Kitchen and Such

The breakfast room is open to the kitchen. A walk-in pantry is on the left side. The island contains the cooktop while the kitchen peninsula houses the double sink and dishwasher. Then, to the left of the kitchen, another set of stairs is right by the laundry room, which includes a utility sink and a countertop to fold clothes. Two reach-in closets are opposite the laundry.

Finally, the master suite and master bath are right after the laundry room. The master suite has a bump-out with windows on three sides. The master bath has a soaking tub, a walk-in shower, enclosed toilet and two sinks. A generously sized walk-in closet completes this suite.

   The Second Floor

First, when you use the stairs closest to the master suite, you go directly to the recreation room. Here you have more than 300 square feet of possibilities. I’m pretty sure you could even play cornhole in here. There is more than enough attic storage nearby, too. Then, you have three bedroom suites upstairs. Each has its own walk-in closet. 

Suite #4 has its own bath with a single sink, toilet and shower/tub. A small closet is nearby to hold bath essentials. Finally, the second set of stairs is between suites #4 and #3. Suites #2 and #3 share a bath. Here, there are two sinks, a toilet and a shower/tub.

A home should mean comfort for you and your loved ones. That might mean having that extra space-the recreational room- or covered porches where you can sit and relax. The exciting and challenging part of building a new home is making it totally yours. So, consider the Glendale Plan when you get ready to build. Be sure to click on the green button on the right side that says add to cart. You’ll be glad you did!
