House plans designed for narrow lots, as a trend, are a result of changing building codes, regulations and land availability, to name a few. Over the past 20 years or so the landscape of available house lots has changed. It is much more common today for a company to develop a section of land into a crafted community than it was in the past.
Some may say they are just trying to pack-in as many homes in the land as possible. And to be honest there are developers out there that do that. But the majority of them are trying to create a sustainable and beautiful place for families to live.
A well designed and developed community might require house plans designed for narrow lots, but that doesn't mean the home will be lacking in any way. One of our multiple award-winning house plans was designed specifically for narrow lots.
This Mediterranean style villa is designed to maximize space. The open floor plan and the retreating glass walls in the great room erase the line between the indoors and the outside. With 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms this home is ideal for a growing family. Yet at only 2778 sq. ft. of living space it isn't too large for a retired couple.
As each bedroom has its own private bathroom, this plan is also ideal as a multi-generational home. This home lives much larger than its foot print. The wide open common areas are well balanced by just the right amount of private space.
The key to a well designed narrow lot home is to make it seem bigger on the inside. Welcoming in the outdoors is also key. With an expansive covered patio and an outdoor kitchen you'll be spending your summers outside. The covered Solana is just an amazing touch that creates such a special atmosphere you'll feel like your on vacation every weekend.
