Great design doesn’t usually come in small home packages, but the Franklin is an exception to that rule. A stately covered entry establishes great curb appeal, along with the attention to detail in its fretwork, square columns, gabled vents and interesting roofline.
The rear or alley loaded southern-style Franklin lives large for a home of 1,575 sq. ft., a Great Room plan for the “footprint conscience” homeowner. Not short of amenities, this home is filled with up-grades such as 10-foot ceilings, generous Guest Bedrooms and a Kitchen complete with a snack-bar island and convenient Pantry. Even the Foyer accommodates a coat closet.
Additional features of the Franklin include a large covered Lanai which opens completely to the Great Room, tray ceilings define the Dining area from the Great Room, while many windows allows lots of natural light. A generous Master Bedroom with it’s own private entry and lighted niche, offers a walk-in-closet and an opulent Master Bath.
This same plan is available with a front-load garage.
