Spacious Floor Plans

Compared to earlier 18th century style homes, today's versions stand tall and grand against the backdrop. They have numerous windows lining the facade, including three or more dormers in the front. It's also common to see two chimneys jetting toward the sky from the dual interior fireplaces.

Exterior Details

Our floor plans are symmetrical in design and feature the same amount of windows on each side of the entry door. Wood and brick are the most common exterior materials and may be combined in some designs. Other common features include:

  • Hipped roofs in the front
  • Two or four columns on the front porch
  • Three or four dormers
  • Covered verandas
  • An attached guest house

Interior Details

Our average 18th century design homes come with 2,500 square feet of interior space. Most plans have a minimum of three bedrooms and two full baths, but it's common to see four bedrooms and five full baths as the square footage increases. The great room takes up most of the space downstairs and is open to the kitchen; the dining room is usually placed in another location. Other interior features include:

  • Breakfast nooks
  • Grand foyers
  • Separate dens or parlors
  • Mudrooms
  • Family rooms
