Planning Ahead: Retirement & Empty Nester House Plans


Retiring, aging, and the best floor plans for planning ahead.

For many of us, growing older leads to decluttering, getting rid of material items, and downsizing your home. Whether you’re searching for a home to retire in or are just planning ahead, consider floor plans that’ll simplify your life, suit your needs long term, and allow you to age comfortably.

The following homes all offer three bedroom, two bathroom options in various sizes with unique features in each home. Even if you don’t think you need three bedrooms now, consider how the extra bedrooms can be used as flexible spaces to suit your needs as you age:

  • - Home office or study
  • - Guest rooms for family or in-home caretakers
  • - Fitness room
  • - Additional storage

Bonus: All of these floor plans are one-story homes, making them even better for empty nesters, aging homeowners, and those requiring in-home medical care.

The Noble

1464 square feet
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2


You’ll love:

  • - The private master bedroom and bathroom
  • - The open floor plan
  • - The smaller size and efficient space

The Noble offers all the perks of a larger home with less house to clean and maintain. You’ll love spending time with loved ones in the spacious living room that opens to the dining and kitchen area, but the Noble offers plenty of space to retire for some peace and quiet, too.


The Sedalia

1512 square feet
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2

The Sedalia

You’ll love:

  • - The dedicated laundry room
  • - The spacious master suite
  • - The large eat-in kitchen with dual sinks and plenty of counter space

The Sedalia offers the perks of the Noble with a little more elbow room. The roomy kitchen setup makes cooking and eating with the family a breeze, and the kitchen opens up into the living room to create an airy open floor plan.



The Alexandria

1858 square feet
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2

 The Alexandra

You’ll love:

  • - Plenty of room to spread out when you have visitors
  • - The dedicated dining room
  • - The large master suite and walk-in closet

The Alexandria features a huge master suite, ample closet space, and generously sized spare bedrooms. A large living room connects to a dining room, which leads to a large kitchen and laundry area.



Whether downsizing is the best move for you or you’d prefer a sprawling floor plan, these one-story homes offer homeowners flexibility and affordability to design a home ideal for aging adults. The Noble, Sedalia, and Alexandra are all on display at Carolina Custom Homes now, so come see us to find your perfect floor plan and get accurate pricing for your plans!
