In 1.5 storied homes, the main floor is substantially larger than the upper floor affording the family loads of space to live and sleep while also offering space in which to create meaningful additional spatial and functional rooms. Having the majority of the essential rooms on the main floor allows for plenty of vaulted ceilings, open window designs and private bedrooms without overhead floor traffic. Another great feature for 1.5 storied homes is their ability to allow the homeowners the option to age in their home and retain enough space overhead to feature rooms for overnight or long term guests. Cape Cod and Country homes are just two of the many distinctive styles for 1.5 stories and the addition of dormers, creative nooks and crannies along with multi-purpose upper level rooms create homes with unique character and flair.
A walkout basement offers many advantages: it maximizes a sloping lot, adds square footage without increasing the footprint of the home, and creates another level of outdoor living. Families with an older child (say, a newly minted college graduate looking for work), a live-in relative, or frequent guests will appreciate the privacy that a lower-level suite gives. For maximum accessibility, consider a layout with an elevator.
