This Traditional style 4 bedroom 3.5 bath floor plan provides a host of amenities for easy family living, including wrap around front porch, spacious open kitchen with food prep island and breakfast corner, study off the foyer, and deck and screened porch overlooking the backyard.
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.
Outside the kitchen, the room that turns the most shoppers into buyers is the master bedroom, or “owner’s suite” as it’s often called in marketing material. The best masters register a strong romantic appeal. It’s easy to imagine them as sanctuaries; they offer the promise of relaxation and a good night’s sleep. The best masters make the most of outdoor views. They often connect to balconies and porches.
