Loads of charm on a narrow lot

(ran HC edition)

This 30-foot-wide, 1,529-square-foot, two-story house will work well on a narrow lot. The double gabled roof adds dimension to the front exterior and complements the front porch with its barrel roofed cover that is supported with four square columns that sit on square, wood-covered bases. The siding is horizontal and pairs well with the shake roof.

The entry hall features a powder room and leads to the rear-facing dining and living room combination. The living room has a raised ceiling and fireplace, and the dining room leads to a rear patio through sliding glass doors. Adjacent to the dining room is a kitchen that includes a peninsula with an eating bar and a pantry. The laundry room acts as a mud room between the double garage and house.

A U-shaped staircase leads upstairs to the bedroom level, where two bedrooms face to the front with a full compartment bath. The master bedroom is to the rear and includes a walk-in closet with built-in shelving. Between the closet and bedroom is a compartmental bath with a shower and double vanity.

This plan is also available with a daylight basement.
