Features of Craftsman Home Plans

Since the creation of the first Craftsman home by California architects the Greene brothers, the Craftsman Home Plan has been a consistent favorite amongst homeowners. Influenced by the English Arts and Crafts Movement as well as Oriental architecture, this home style is simple yet detailed with many distinctive features.

WHAT DEFINES A CRAFTSMAN HOME PLAN?

These days, many styles are being lumped into the category of Craftsman. True Craftsman homes are easily identified by certain characteristics, though details can vary. Some of the most prominent exterior features of a Craftsman home plan are:

 Wide, overhanging eves (often with decorative support brackets)

 A deep front porch

 Tapered columns

 A partially paneled front door

 Double-hung windows with multiple lights over a single pane

Inside, the charm of the Craftsman home plan continues with the use of natural materials, with details that convey a handcrafted look:

 Built-in cabinetry

 Nooks and window seats

 A large, prominent fireplace

In the Sater Design Collection, the “Bayberry Lane” is a perfect example of a modern Craftsman-style house plan.

With 2476 square feet of living space, a split bedroom layout, and a three-car garage, this home plan is ideal for families who desire space and privacy.

The open floor plan with multiple access doors to the large rear porch and veranda create an entertaining space that is second to none.
