The Walsham Plan- Cottage Plus!

The Walsham Plan-Cottage Plus! by Living Concepts may be your next retreat, the home you never want to leave. Why? In 4698 square feet, you have a basement, first floor, five bedrooms, five full baths and one half-bath. Need more reasons? There is extra storage, places to play and work- and a library.

Tapered columns help to define Walsham as a Craftsman plan. It is also a cottage- think design, not square footage. The three-car garage on the left is offset. Then, to the right of the garage, the covered front porch gives you plenty of room for stretching your legs out with your favorite cool (or warm) beverage in hand. Stone and cedar siding wrap around from front to back, creating a warm, inviting home.

   The Basement Plan

First, taking the stairs to the basement, you enter the recreation room. The fireplace is on the far wall. Shelving is on both sides. Then, to your immediate right, there is a kitchen. A full kitchen! The peninsula offers you seating while the double sink and dishwasher will make cleaning up easy. You also have room for the refrigerator.

Next, right after the kitchen, there is a room for storage. Another room for outdoor storage is accessible at the far right of the basement. The mechanical/storage room is located directly behind the kitchen. That makes three storage rooms! 

Then, from the recreation room, step outside to the covered veranda. This might be the most-used room in your house, especially if you love to entertain. See the rear elevation below for the beautiful back of the house. You could even consider adding a pool!

   The Rest of the Basement

Next, in the basement plan there are three bedroom suites. Suite #2 is on the far-right side of the plan. It has a walk-in closet. The bathroom has a toilet, single sink and a shower/tub combination. On the left side of the basement, there are suites #3 and #4. Each suite has a walk-in closet.

Then, suite 3 has a single sink, toilet and a walk-in shower. The bathroom also has a door that opens onto the veranda. Suite 4, however, has a toilet, single sink and a soaking tub. Finally, nestled in between these two suites is your study/den. A built-in countertop gives you a dedicated space for your laptop and room to organize your books and papers.

   The First Floor

First, from the garage, you have a reach-in closet immediately on your right. Then, on your left is the laundry room. A place for the stackable washer and utility sink are included. Also on the left is the powder room. Directly across from here is the kitchen.

There are two kitchen islands. One is square and centered in the room. The other, however, separates the kitchen from the breakfast room. It has room for seating and also houses the double sink. A pantry is tucked into the left corner; your major appliances are on the wall closest to the garage.

   More on the First Floor

Then, from the breakfast room, you walk into the family room. It has a fireplace on the right side. Between the breakfast room and family room you will find a door leading out to the open terrace. Another door from the gathering room (to the right of the breakfast room) also opens up onto the terrace. Like the family and recreation rooms, there is a fireplace in the gathering room with shelves on both sides.

Walking towards the front of the home, you enter the foyer. On your right is the formal dining room. It has a door to the kitchen. Then, on your left is the library or guest room. It has an extended reach-in closet. The attached bath has a single sink, toilet and shower/tub.

   The Master Suite

Finally, the master suite is on the right of the first floor. The sleeping area has a tray ceiling. There is a door that opens up to the balcony. The suite includes a large walk-in closet with an island. In the bathroom, there are two sinks divided by (thankfully!) counter space to give you that needed elbow room. There is also an enclosed toilet, a soaking tub and a walk-in shower.
