As you begin considering home designs and floor plans, it is important to establish how many bedrooms and bathrooms your family will need. At this stage, you can also discuss potential guest quarters while exploring the interconnection of shared gathering spaces on the ground level. Homebuyers can also consider the luxury features offered for master suites and decide which upgrades and add-ons will complete their social areas and private spaces. The Monroe, The Greenbrier and The Harrison are three popular Hallmark home designs that offer specific advantages which can be fine-tailored to suit your exact needs.The Monroe Home Design
This design welcomes you with a dramatic two-story foyer which opens to the living room and dining room on either side. You are then greeted by a spacious kitchen which opens to the family room and provides access to the in-law suite. The second level features three bedrooms interspersed by two bathrooms as well as an owner’s suite complete with a retreat area, luxury bath and walk-in closet. This floor plan also features optional add-ons, or upgrades, including a solarium, morning room and “Wall of Windows” option for the family room. Expansion options include upgrading from a two- to a three-car garage as well as widening the family room.
The Monroe is distinguished by a bright, sun-soaked main level, a wide staircase and a welcoming foyer which expands into the living areas. This design is perfect for growing families who love to relax in wide-open areas and who also cherish individual private spaces.The Greenbrier Home Design
This design expands laterally with the massive three-car garage leading into the kitchen which then opens to the dining room, breakfast area and family room. The first level also includes a private study just off the kitchen, an optional morning room off the breakfast area as well as optional bay windows for the family room and the living room. Upstairs, the owner’s quarters occupies nearly half the square footage, with an entry area leading to the bedroom which then gives way to the retreat, sitting area, walk-in closet and luxury bathroom. This level also includes three spacious bedrooms, two of which have walk-in closets as well as two additional bathrooms.
The Greenbrier is a unique layout centered around the kitchen which opens up into the adjoining shared living areas. As the focal point of the lower level, the expansive theme of the kitchen repeats throughout the floor plan. The open, welcoming feel is perfect for families who love to congregate around cooking, dining and quality time together.The Harrison Home Design
Enter into a breathtaking two-story foyer that opens up into the dining room, gallery, family room and kitchen. The left side of this level is dedicated to the owner’s quarters which include a master’s suite, luxury bath and walk-in closet. A private study is to the immediate left of the foyer, and can be interconnected to the first-floor owner’s suite if desired. Upstairs in The Harrison includes three bedrooms, one bath, a loft which opens to the foyer and a large area to the left of the stairs which gazes upon the family room, breakfast area and kitchen below. This layout features optional ground-level upgrades including a solarium off the kitchen and a fireplace in the family room.
The Harrison-Side Entry is ideal for hardworking owners and parents who prefer to have their private space on a level separate from the other bedrooms. The layout presents a connected feeling throughout, yet also provides a sense of accessible privacy and first-floor luxury. This design is ideal for buyers who want lower-level expanding options as well as a connected feeling between the upper and lower levels provided by the open areas.Choosing the Best Layout for Your Family
When shopping for the perfect home, a great strategy is to begin by looking for a layout that suits your unique preferences, wants and needs. Hallmark Homes Group excels in designing houses for dynamic families — offering distinctive floor plans that take luxury living to the next level.
The layout you choose should reflect the number of current family members while providing space for new arrivals in the way of children, frequent visitors or perhaps a private quarters for in-laws. You can choose a layout that isolates the master bedroom for optimal peace and quiet or choose one with a centrally located owner’s suite.
These top three designs feature multiple, strategically placed bathrooms on the bedroom level — some shareable between rooms and others totally private. These layouts also include ½ baths on the ground level and can be amended for additional accommodations for finished basement customizations.
Hallmark’s new homes include distinctive variations of the open-concept floor plan. This approach to modern living celebrates the spatial benefit of overlapping the living room, dining room, kitchen and other areas into one dynamic space. Rather than being filled with walls which separate, the ground level offers property-wide sight lines for better interaction and communication.
