Small ranch-style Sandpiper offers open floor plan

Associated Designs

From the street, the understated simplicity of the Sandpiper invites a second look. Slender posts frame the front door and a railing extends to mark the boundary of the covered porch; a delightful place for a porch swing or set of chairs for those who enjoy connecting with neighbors and passersby.

The beautiful front porch of the Sandpiper house plan exudes its Country Style. Fitting enough for a small family or as a retirement retreat, this two-bedroom house is adorningly simple while having all the basic amenities plus a little extra.

Inside the entry is open to the great room. A few steps in is a coat closet. The living room is inviting and features a corner fireplace which can be enjoyed from the nook which is just slightly offset from the living room.

By the fireplace, French doors open to the 3-season porch which is ideal for those who love to enjoy the outdoors but may live where bugs or wind are a problem. Through the nook is the kitchen along with access to the walk-in pantry.

Off the kitchen is a hallway that traverses the home. At the end is access to the attached two car garage which is just steps away from the pass-through utility room. With access to the backyard, the utility room can serve as a mud hall keeping dirty clothes and shoes from making it through the home.

A distinctive feature of the Sandpiper is that its two bedrooms are dual master suites. While one of the suites shares access to its bathroom each suite has a walk-in closet and full bathroom.

As suggested by its name, the Sandpiper would make a wonderful beach house plan or vacation getaway. Or those who are looking for a home with reduced maintenance may enjoy the Sandpiper’s floor plan as a year-round residence.
