What do you see when you picture your dream home? A tall, towering multi level house? Or a sprawling one story with room to roam? If you’re on the fence, here are some things to consider:
Is this your forever home? Or is it likely you’ll move again?
If you plan on growing old in this house, you may want to consider a one-story floor plan. Your joints will thank you down the road.
Do you have young children or elderly adults living with you?
If you have family members from all walks of life in your home, a one-story home can prevent a lot of thrills and spills. Two story homes are beautiful, but so is your peace of mind.
How much land do you have to build on?
Some areas are better suited to a two story home while others can easily accommodate a ranch.
Sometimes we have to build “up” to get the space you want out of your dream home. If you’ve got the land for it, we can build “out” and give you a spacious one story ranch.
Are views more important than convenience?
Or will you be living in an area where views of the surrounding landscape aren’t high on your wishlist?
If you live where you have a view of the best Mother Nature has to offer, you’ll understandably want a home where you can appreciate those views from a bird’s eye view. But in some areas, the convenience of a one story can outweigh the views of our neighbors’ lawns.
What’s easier to clean, maintain, and navigate at any stage of life? A one story ranch home. Here are some of our favorite one story home floor plans:
Area: 1288 Sq Ft • Bathrooms: 2 • Bedrooms: 3
Affordable and stylish, the Altimont is available in several different exterior styles. It’s the coziest of our featured one story plans, but it still offers a spacious master suite with a walk-in closet, an open area kitchen and dining room, a comfortable living room, guest bath, and two additional bedrooms.
Area: 1610 Sq Ft • Bathrooms: 2 • Bedrooms: 3
All the great features of the Altimont with the added bonus of an eating nook in the kitchen and a dedicated study for your home office, library, or a cozy space to retreat for some peace and quiet.
Area: 1716 Sq Ft • Bathrooms: 2 • Bedrooms: 3
The Smithfield + larger rooms + a foyer + a dedicated dining room + walk-in closets in every bedroom + a laundry room + a gourmet kitchen = The Sparta. Yeah, we like it, too!
