An authentic shingle style home truly fuses with the surrounding landscape. Little Plains Road is the perfect choice for a smaller home on a relatively wide lot. Its long, shallow footprint creates a private backyard and interior space full of light and garden views. Upon entering the home, one is greeted by a dynamic entry hall which is bathed in sunlight from a row of windows above the stair. This entry flows into a large great room and a kitchen/family room, both of which open up onto an expansive rear terrace. The great room also opens to a covered porch with outdoor fireplace and views of both backyard and side garden. This porch can be outfitted with removable glass or screen panels or with motorized screens.
Little Plains Road can be upgraded to include an attached or detached garage of any size, with or without a second floor studio/bedroom(s).
1st Floor Plan: Like a true shingle style house, Little Plains Road has a layout which is both modern in its open flow and traditional in its strongly defined rooms. The primary rooms have 8 foot tall french doors and large 6′-6″ tall windows that fill the spaces with natural light and encourage easy flow to outdoor rooms. First floor ceilings are 9′-3″ high which, along with the oversized windows, give this relatively small home a surprisingly spacious feel.
Set between the great room and kitchen/family room described in the site plan section, Little Plains Road also features a sun-filled dining room that projects out onto the rear terrace. Beyond the kitchen, a large mudroom, laundry room, and pantry ensure that Little Plains Road operates with the efficiency of a much larger home.
2nd Floor Plan: Little Plains Road has large windows and 8′-6″ ceilings throughout the second floor. As an option, any space can be made taller with a cathedral ceiling. The master suite features a private porch with views of the back garden, a master bath with double sink and large shower, and a dressing room with two windows. Across the stair hall are two more sunny bedrooms with walk-in closets and a shared bath.
Basement Plan: Little Plains Road is shown here with 842 square feet of finished space including a large playroom, a bar, an exercise room, a bathroom, and an optional fireplace. Full basements on this website are detailed with numerous full height windows, filling the space with natural light and making it feel anything but underground. Little Plains Road is shown with four large basement windows and additional windows are possible if more finished space is desired. A walk-out basement with french doors is also possible for sloping sites.
Attic Plan: Little Plains Road has 560 square feet of sun-filled third floor space that could be converted into a studio/office, a playroom, or any number of other possibilities. Third floor bedroom suites are also an option.
