Looking-for-a-home-with-lots-of-livable-space-and-optipons--check-out-the-Southmore.jpgWhen you’re looking for a plan for your new custom home in the Rochester area, having enough space is always a consideration. But not all space is created equal.

There’s more to space than simply square footage. It’s important that the home plan you choose fits your needs. And in addition to usable space, you want to have options that can make your home fit your lifestyle.

The Southmore has plenty of space (2,431 square feet, or 2,657 square feet if you opt for the finished Bonus Room). And this space is well laid out. The centrally located kitchen is open to a gorgeous morning room with cathedral ceilings and a great room with an optional fireplace. There’s plenty of space for the family to hang out together and for casual entertaining. And if you want a more formal setting for a sit-down dinner, the separate dining room is easily accessible.

If you need a home office, it’s in a quiet corner of the first floor. And there’s plenty of practical space as well. The attached garage has extra storage space built in and opens to a mudroom, powder room and laundry room.

There’s also plenty of room upstairs. In addition to the master suite, you’ll have three more bedrooms and a second bathroom. There’s even a large bonus room that can be finished as a home entertainment room, a game room, or whatever else you need.

You can add other options as well, such as his/her sinks in the master bath, a countertop in the downstairs laundry room, gable windows on the house and garage, windows in the overhead garage door, and stone/brick veneer on the exterior of the house.

If you’re looking for plenty of open, livable space, with great options to make this house the home you’ve always dreamed of, you’ll want to check out the Southmore. Click here to see an enlarged floor plan for this beautiful home.
