Narrow Lot House Plan 56937 measures only 28'8 wide, and it extends to 60'2 deep. It's only 2 rooms wide with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. This house plan is tailored to fit into construction lots that will not accommodate a traditional home. For example, this home plan works for Infill Lots and small Golf Course Lots. Those who want more yard space will like this one because it's a great Zero Lot Line House Plan option as well.
Details on the exterior give this small house plan lots of charm. Clean vertical white siding is paired with cedar shake siding in the front gable. The porch is accented by exposed rafter tails and thick wooden columns. We love the brick skirting and steps on the porch. This sheltered front porch is 14' wide by 6' deep, so there's just enough room to set out a chair or two and visit with the neighbors.
Our clients are looking for narrow lot house plans because they need a design to fit into an unusually-sized lot. Firstly, in a neighborhood, you might have a property that faces the road, and it's much longer than it is wide. This is called a "narrow lot." Check with your building permit office to make sure that Narrow Lot House Plan 56937 will fit on your lot. You may need to account for setbacks. For example, rules may dictate how close you can build to the sidewalk or how close you can build to the sides of the property line.
Secondly, this home plan works for golf course lots. Golf courses are prime real estate, and sometimes the opportunity to build by one is hard to find. Many golf courses are trying to secure real estate opportunities by offering smaller, narrow lots in order to fit in more homes. House Plan 56937 will fit on most lots because it's only 28'8 wide. Retirees will love this plan because it offers comfortable interior living space, but the location is the main goal. We'll see you on the green at first light.
Thirdly, this is a great Infill Lot House Plan or Zero Lot Line House Plan. Infill lots are found in already-developed areas. Those construction sites may be small and narrow, but they are desirable because the surrounding area has established amenities. Often, it's a lot where an older building or house was torn down. As a Zero Lot Line House Plan, plan 56937 can be built right on the property line. Picture a rectangular piece of property. Position the house to hug the left side of the property line, and then you have a nice-sized yard on the right side. It's perfect for throwing a football.
Narrow Lot House Plan 56937 opens into the great room, and it has a 10' ceiling. With a narrow home, it's a good idea to "go up." Tall ceilings give the illusion of spaciousness. The open layout continues through the dining area and into the kitchen. It's a fully-functional kitchen because traffic flows gracefully around the large center island. There is plenty of cabinet space all around. Even the laundry room offers just the right amount of elbow room with no wasted space.
Enter the master bedroom from the rear of the house. This back entry door gives Dad and Mom more privacy. If you're on a golf course, step right outside through the back door, grab your golf clubs from the storage shed, and get on with your favorite sport. Also, you will appreciate the amenities of the master ensuite. Not often found in small homes, there is a large walk-in closet and a double vanity in the master bathroom.
The smaller bedrooms are located at the front of the home, and they are very flexible. If you have children, they will not be able to fight over the bigger bedroom because both are the same size. If you don't need full-time bedrooms, use the rooms as a guest room, home gym, and/or office.
This plan also offers a basement option so you can expand your living space underground instead of having a larger footprint.
