Let’s take a look at some floor plans that illustrate the best designs for socializing.
1. Delton – 1,620 square feet
This open concept townhouse is perfect for getting in some family time or conversing with friends. For starters, the back entry way features a roomy bench to take off shoes and coats, then gives way to a large kitchen. The kitchen itself features a large island for entertaining and cooking meals with ease. Extremely open, this area overlooks the Delton’s spacious nook and sizeable living room.
Next to the living area, you’ll find the front entryway with a large front closet where you can hang your guest’s coats during the winter months. This townhouse is sure to please someone who wants to impress with the ease of entertaining.
2. Cypher II – 1,679 square feet
What sets this duplex apart is the functional design that makes it easy to create memories with family and friends. Both entryways feature large closets, while the living room and nook share a finely finished half bathroom – making hosting a family function much easier.
Upstairs, this home features a gorgeous patio just off the bonus room. Here, you can visit with friends or take in a family dinner on warmer nights. There is also an accessible upper floor bath that’s just a short walk down the hall. There’s no doubt, the Cypher II is set up with a social lifestyle in mind.
3. Eberle – 1,620 square feet
The main floor of this laned home is extremely open and seamlessly combines one space with another. The Eberle’s living and nook areas are very generous in size and offer ample closet space for storage. The nearby kitchen overlooks the entire space with its eat-in island and includes a designer double sink – perfect for cleaning up after a gathering.
The back entryway has a large bench and closet for your convenience, as well as an easily accessible main floor powder room. If you enjoy open concept spaces, the Eberle could very well be the home for you.
4. Tambellini – 2,171 square feet
The front attached Tambellini model is a superb fit for someone who wants the best of both worlds when is comes to socialization and privacy. For example, the foyer, main floor half bath and laundry areas of this model remain separate from the main living area. This is ideal for giving guests their privacy as well as keeping your laundry area removed from view.
The living area includes a large kitchen with eating bar as well as an adjacent eating nook. These spaces are connected and open, perfect for hosting a party chatting with family members as you prepare a meal. The Tambellini also includes a large walk-through pantry making it easy to cook and store many ingredients.
Lastly, as you walk upstairs, you’ll come across a large bonus room with adjoining three-piece bathroom. This is the ideal space to spend time with friends, or a play area for the kids as the adults visit on the main level.
5. Westeros – 2,389 square feet
Have a family that wants to have multiple conversations at once? This home keeps socializing spaces separate with a hint of connectivity. For instance, when you enter the foyer, you’ll see the nearby main floor half bathroom almost immediately. These areas are separate from the Westeros’ generous great room which sits open to the kitchen. The kitchen itself offers plenty of room for more seating with an eat-in island and nearby dining nook.
Just off the nook, you’ll enjoy a private den. This is a great feature if you have kids or work from home – as this area is removed from the action, but still easily accessible from the main floor living areas.
Now that you have a better idea of what options are available to you, you can better decide on a floor plan to suit your unique social needs. Be sure to talk to your builder about other great layouts that are sure to suit your family.
