I love this house design because it’s an elevated design for a seemingly “regular” suburban home. First of all, there’s the two contrasting exterior color scheme. It’s brilliant. The two-constrasting color scheme is also contrasted with exterior materials – siding for dark and white-painted brick for the white. Seriously, this is not a fancy or expensive facade but it looks so great because of the clever use of contrasting colors and different exterior materials.
Also of note is the interior is very well done. Scroll down to see the interior design for this home (after the floor plan).

Welcome to photos and footprint for a 4-bedroom New American style two-story home. Here’s the floor plan:
Dark clapboard siding and contrasting stone accents grace this 4-bedroom New American home. Large gables and metal roofs add to the home’s appeal.
Inside, an entry hallway ushers you into the great room warmed by a fireplace. It includes a vaulted ceiling and folding glass doors that open onto a covered patio. The adjacent kitchen features a roomy pantry, a multi-use island, and an adjoining dining room with banquette seating.
The primary bedroom occupies the right wing. It has private porch access and a 5-fixture ensuite with a walk-in closet.
Neighboring laundry and mudroom that leads to the garage complete the main level. Both rooms are concealed behind pocket doors.
Upstairs, three bedrooms sharing two baths are dispersed. One of the bedrooms enjoys a spacious deck equipped with a hot tub. A bonus room offers a flexible space for the family.
