Floor Plan Profile: Highlands
The Highlands floor plan is a deceptively spacious home. At first glance, it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, but alow with the lower level, the array of options this home provides makes it one of the highly desirable Lakeville MN homes that we build. As people think about the limitations of their current homes and want to consider something new, the Highlands floor plan could be just what a variety of buyers want in today’s market.
The Highlands is a 1706-square-foot home with a three-car garage, great for both storage and hobbies. While primarily a ranch home with the main living on the ground floor, there is a lower level that turns this into a home that could meet so many needs. For young families or empty nesters who don’t need a huge home, but want options, this is ideal. Yet this home also works for families with a few kids, especially tweens and teens that want a little more space. It also works for families that currently need a home office and/or a homeschooling area. The adaptability of this home makes it incredibly useful and comfortable, no matter your lifestyle.
You start off with great curb appeal, including a covered front porch. Highlands is full of immediate charm and a real sense of being home, right from the start. You enter into the foyer, with a convenient coat closet, and from the foyer you enter into the heart of the home. To one side of the entrance, yet with clear division from the entry, is the large kitchen, complete with island and additional cabinet options. The kitchen sink looks out over the front yard for a pleasant view during a dull task. The dining area is just off the kitchen and it is this and the family room where the entry foyer actually leads you, creating a comforting welcome.
The spacious family room includes a cozy fireplace for the winter, as well as doors that lead out onto the sunroom for summertime fun and some wintertime sunshine. Located off the family room is the second bedroom, with a full bathroom across the hall. Further down the hall is the owner’s suite with a large bathroom, walk-in closet, and even access to the laundry room from the walk-in closet for added convenience. There’s also an additional doorway to the laundry room just off the interior entrance from the garage, just past the stairs that lead to the lower level.
The lower level is where this home really gives you so many options. As well as plenty of space for storage, and a separate utility area, there’s an option for a third bedroom, a den, as well as a larger open area that can be used as both a rec room and game room. Alternatively, with today’s needs, the den and/or bedroom could serve as home offices, depending on your needs, while the rec room and game area could be used for homeschooling. There’s also the option of a third bathroom downstairs. This means you can use this space as a great guest room suite, and the large open area can be used for a variety of purposes, depending on your lifestyle now and in the future as things change. Use part of the space for your own personal home gym, turn it into a crafting area, let it be a great hangout for the kids, or use it for your home business. The flexibility makes it ideal for now and for years to come.
So if you’re currently on the market for Lakeville MN homes that give you a wealth of options in how you live and grow in your home, the Highlands could be the perfect home for you. Contact us today to learn more about the communities where we build this home and about this truly comforting home.
