Floor Plan Profile: Parker
For a home that fits all of your needs and more, look no further than the Parker floor plan from Key Land Homes, a leading home builder in Minneapolis. This two-story home with a semi-finished basement is an outstanding choice for home buyers at various stages of their lives.
The first floor makes use of traditional open-plan design, but with a few extras that make it even more functional. You are welcomed into the home from a covered front porch into a lovely foyer that provides privacy for the rest of the home. Just off the foyer is a power room – truly convenient – and around the corner is a coat closet, perfect for storing items without having them strewn throughout the house. From here you pass the stairs and enter into the heart of the home.
While the first floor is primarily open concept, there’s still a sense of focused space to each area. The living room and kitchen are divided by the dining area, providing some useful separation from noise and smells, while the dining area is centrally located to serve as a useful space, not just for meals, but for homework that allows family members to be nearby for help if needed. It also gives kids a place to work on projects within the parents’ view. In a pinch, it can be a parent’s work space too.
The kitchen is spacious, with plenty of counters, cabinets, and even a walk-in pantry and the sink has a window view. There’s also a large island for even more workspace and storage. The family room, on the other side of the home is large and includes plenty of windows for natural light, as well as a focal fireplace for cozy winter days and nights. In addition to all of this, there’s a convenient mud room just off the garage so that snow, mud and more don’t get tracked into the home. Plus, there’s a bonus room next to the mud room, which serves as an excellent home office space.
Upstairs, you’ll find the traditional bedrooms, four in total, with a large bathroom for the other bedrooms to share, and a spacious owner’s suite with an ensuite bathroom and a large walk-in closet. There’s also a laundry room upstairs for convenience.
Finally, there’s a semi-finished basement area that provides additional space and flexibility. There’s the option of a fifth bedroom and bathroom, or another home office if needed. The extra bedroom space could also be used as a hobby room. In addition, there’s a large storage area and best of all, there’s a truly large recreation room, which is big enough to serve multiple purposes. Use it as a playroom for kids, a game room for older kids, a space for homeschooling, or even a fully fledged home gym. You can mix and match, depending on your personal lifestyle. The space could also serve as a mini apartment for multi-generational living if needed. It’s a fantastic bonus that allows the home to change with your needs over the years.
This spacious, 2,464-square-foot home is an excellent option that provides plenty of storage and room for the whole family. The flexibility of the rooms and the extra rooms mean the Parker floor plan can alter easily to meet your needs now and in the future without feeling cramped.
