Handsome Royston great for entertaining

From page C15 | January 18, 2013 |

Bold brick veneer columns and arched openings impart a look of permanence to the Mediterranean style Royston. This mid-size, single-level plan is ideal for families who enjoy entertaining.

Two large formal rooms flank a foyer that leads into the bright and open informal gathering space at the rear. And in summer, guests can spill out onto the large, partially covered patio as well.

Ceilings in the foyer, dining room and parlor are a lofty 12 feet high. The parlor has a built-in corner desk, along with cabinetry to house a TV and/or stereo system. Graceful arched openings in the dining room link it to the foyer, kitchen and living room.

Abundant natural light spills into the living room and nook through wide windows that fill most of the rear wall. A fireplace serves as a warm and colorful focal point. Shelves are on one side, a home entertainment center on the other.

Standing at the kitchen sink, you have a sweeping view of the living room, nook, patio, and back yard. A long, raised eating bar provides seating for informal eating, while a walk-in pantry and central work island add to the already ample storage and counter space.

Laundry appliances are nearby, in a large, passthrough utility room that connects to the garage and can double as a mudroom.

A fireplace with a TV niche above adds to the ambiance in the Royston’s owners’ suite. The owners’ bath boasts a large walk-in closet, spa tub, shower, dual vanity, and totally private toilet.

Secondary bedrooms, or a bedroom and den or home office, share a bathroom on the opposite side of the home.

Visit for more information or to search our home plans. A review plan of the Royston 30-398, including floor plans, elevations, section, and artist’s conception, can be purchased for $25. Our home plan catalog, featuring more than 550 home plans, costs $15. Both are available online, by mail or phone. Add $5 s/h.
