Want a beautiful home that uses space wisely? This 1,534-square-foot design, Plan HMAFAPW1726 from, has a smart layout with some surprising amenities.

A few examples: the window seat in the dining room, an extra space for trash and recycling in the garage, and bench and coat closets on the way in from both main entrances.

Living spaces are positioned to take advantage of passive solar benefits if the home is oriented with the kitchen, living and dining room windows facing south. Structural features, such as 12-inch exterior walls and raised-heel roof trusses, allow for increased insulation. The roof layout accommodates solar PV panels.

A built-in desk and bookshelf are welcome details near the kitchen, where a peninsula snack counter provides space for casual meals. Relax by the fireplace in the living room, with a view of a side patio.

In the sleeping wing, the master suite boasts a large shower, two sinks, and a walk-in closet. A full hall bath serves both the second bedroom and the nearby study, which can be used as a third bedroom.
