It’s also hard to beat the curb appeal of a striking two-story design. Buyers who prefer a traditional layout with the master suite upstairs will find many options here, though master suites on the first floor are now very popular and a good choice for aging in place. To ensure maximum accessibility in the home, consider a design with an elevator that makes it easy to get around.
In an ever evolving need to separate work, play and living, the two story home offers plenty of space for flexible family living in a warm, cozy environment personally designed for individual families. Dramatic and majestic ceiling heights and rooms, formal and/or casual living spaces, extravagant or down-to-earth room designs and the addition of multi-functional and expansion areas are as varied in two storied homes as the people that occupy them. This creative canvas allows for homeowners to virtually custom design their space into the home of their dreams; oftentimes, without sacrificing privacy or space. Multi-storied homes offer degrees of living not found in other home types with specific delineated space in which to entertain, sleep and the affordability of attached outdoor space for children.
The original plan, 26 Monroe Avenue, is a familiar vernacular style with a first-floor layout that resonates with plan buyers. Requests for three- and four-bedroom plans with a Low Country aesthetic led to tweaks in the floor plan and exterior elevations that resulted in new plans, 248 Abbeville Road and 248 Broussard Road. The Abbeville Road home is a four-bedroom Creole design with a large, simple, hipped roof and deep overhangs. The upper floor hosts three bedrooms with private baths, plus a convenient study. Broussard Road is a three-bedroom Generational Farmhouse style typically seen throughout the South. The efficient upper floor includes two bedrooms with private baths and a study at the top of the stairs.
While some may require only minor adjustments to update exteriors, most could also benefit from an overall interior redo. Because the kitchen remains the focal point of the home, many older designs need to be completely reworked to create an open relationship between the kitchen, dining, and family areas. But proceed with caution regarding such openness: Recent surveys indicate that some sort of definition for these rooms is preferable.
