The Marley - Plan #1285 craftsman-exterior

The Marley - Plan #1285

Stone and siding combine with a shed dormer, creating a craftsman look to this exterior. This three-bedroom design is perfect for growing families, with large, open living spaces, and many storage options found throughout. From the side-entry, oversized garage with extra storage space and shelves, to the built-in shelves and coat closet off the rear hall, families will have plenty of options to keep their home clutter-free and organized. The gourmet Kitchen features a large island and is open to the Dining Room, which features a convenient e-space that will be great for mom to oversee homework while getting dinner on the table. The luxurious Master Suite offers a tray ceiling in the bedroom, and dual walk-in closets that lead the way to the well-appointed Master Bath with dual sinks and a large tub. The outdoor living space abounds with a rear porch that leads to a large screen porch with fireplace and a patio with a spa. A large bonus space adds even more flexibility to this plan.

Can this house be built in brick? If so do you have any pictures of it in brick? Thanks.

Hi Paul! This plan could certainly be built in brick, although we haven't seen any photos of it done that way. Attached is a rendering of a similar exterior drawn in brick, to give you an idea of how it might look.
Modifications would be needed to convert the exterior to brick - your builder/engineer may be able to do this, or you can request a quote from our Designers here:
Let us know if you have more questions!
