Here's a photo gallery featuring a charming contemporary craftsman style home with a two story den and open concept living area.
From the rafter tails and the roof pitch to the style and size of windows, the exterior details are uncanny to traditional Craftsman models of the past.
As you look at the front of the home, you are welcomed by the classic Craftsman covered porch, perfect for warm weather, with unique columns.
When you enter the home, the foyer follows the traditional Craftsman floor plan of a staircase to the left and sitting rooms (like the den or living room) to the right.
Some homeowners love the look of a separate garage, others would rather have it “out of sight, out of mind.” Architectural Designs have done a wonderful job of nestling a three-car garage into the design. At first glance, you would have no idea that the house has such a spacious garage.
Open Floor Plan
While this particular Craftsman design lacks some “open flow” features like high ceilings, the main floor is open and cozy. This type of floor plan is perfect for family gatherings and small get togethers.
The fireplace adds a nice touch of warmth and a cozy feel for family game night or a quiet evening at home, alone, with a glass of wine and a good book.
The cabinets and other features, such as the wooden mantelpiece, are a nod to the iconic built-ins of the original Craftsman design but are updated for a more modern look and feel.
The two of the bedrooms are adjoined by a shared bathroom (perfect for kids), while the other bedroom has its own private bathroom, which would make an ideal guest room.
On the second level, there’s an open space that overlooks the first floor den, making the space feel open yet private.
Classic Family Home
This charming Craftsman is the perfect design for a family who loves some of the original features of Craftsman architecture, but who want something a little more modern, open, and light.
Rest of the home
