The Waystrode Plan: Layers of Beauty

The Waystrode Plan: Layers of Beauty is the European home plan by Living Concepts that encourages you to think broadly, to plan ahead for a move to your new home. A basement, first and second floor include what you need as well as extras you might not have known you wanted. Four full bathrooms, two powder rooms, and four bedrooms are the essentials in 5469 square feet. The extra layers? Inside and out, they make this home a beautiful one.

The two-car garage is on the right. A turret on the left and flower beds embedded behind the stone wall plus the stucco and wood accents are true European elements. Wire baskets under two of the windows wait patiently for you to fill them with flowers and greenery that overflows. Copper finials on top of the roof make a majestic statement, too.

   In the Basement

First, when you enter the basement from the stairs, a powder room is immediately on your left. Then, straight ahead is the recreation room. On the left, there is a built-in cabinet. A wet bar is to the right. It has a peninsula for seating, plus ample space for preparation of snacks and drinks. A sink plus a space for an under-the-counter fridge completes this space. Next, on your left, is suite #4. It has a walk-in closet. The bathroom has a single sink, toilet and a shower.

Then, to the right of the recreation room is a book niche. Proudly display your favorite classics and current reads here. Straight ahead is the living room. A fireplace is on the outside right wall; it has room for more books on either side or shelves to hold your favorite board games. Finally, another built-in cabinet is on the left wall.

   In the Basement

First, the back of the Waystrode Plan is as stunning as the front. A large, covered patio gives you so many possibilities for entertaining. Outside steps take you up to the first, main floor. A door on the right gives you access to the living room. The photo below paints this picture best.

Then, the basement gives you places to store extras (equipment, clothing) or as a place for you to release that energy and design knowledge. A large unfinished room on the left side might work for both ideas! It does meander around to the middle of the basement and then serves as mechanical storage. The unfinished area has two outside doors making access easy. Finally, another storage room is on the far-right side of the basement. It, too, has an outside door for you to enter.

   The First Floor, Right Side

First, the two-car garage is on the right side of the home. There is additional room for storage here. A door on the left leads to a small porch, making it easier for you to go inside when you have not been in your car. Then, walking inside, there is a small reach-in closet on your right as well as the laundry room. The kitchen’s walk-in pantry is next and on the same side.

Right around the left corner, there are stairs, one going to the second floor and one going into the basement. Next, the kitchen and breakfast rooms meld into each other, as well as the family room.  The butler’s pantry is here, too. It offers you the perfect space between kitchen and formal dining to store extra serving platters or to transfer food from the kitchen to dining.

Then, there are two kitchen islands. One has designated spaces for your double sink and dishwasher. Walking towards the back of the home, you enter the family room. A fireplace on the right wall is tucked between shelves. Next, on the left wall, there is a door that goes out onto the open terrace. Finally, there are stairs on the left side of the terrace that take you to ground level.

   The Middle and Left Sides

First, from the portico (porch), you walk inside into the foyer. The formal dining room is on your right. Then, on your left, is the powder room. A small walk-in closet is also on the left. However, straight ahead is the conservatory. This room has enough glass for you to grow your favorite orchids or exotic plants. A door on the far wall goes out onto the terrace. 

Next, the master suite and master bath are on the left side of the first floor. A very generous walk-in closet is to the left of the master suite. Then, an exercise room (smart!) is adjacent to the master bath. Inside the master bath there is an enclosed toilet, two single (and separated) sinks, and a soaking tub. A small walk-in closet will hold all of your necessary bathroom needs. Finally, the walk-in shower is in the turret on the far left of the plan.

   The Second Floor

First, at the top of the stairs you are in the sitting room. A door on the right leads to attic access. The sitting room has its own reach-in closet. A door on the left, however, goes into one of two bedroom suites upstairs (suite #2). It also has a door on the left wall that goes into the attic. Suite #2 has a walk-in closet while suite #3, which faces the front of the home, has a reach-in closet. Finally, each bath has a place to store linens, a toilet, single sink and shower/tub combo.
