The Grand Lodge is the ultimate in luxury living for multi-gen families, with something for everyone.

#4 Multi-gen Floor Plan Layout - Guest Suite on the main floor that can be expanded for a more spacious retreat

Multi-gen Statesman

This custom main floor master home starts with 3160 square feet. 4 bedrooms. 4 baths, with a first floor guest suite that is tucked into the opposite corner from the master. The guest suite can be expanded with a sitting room and other elements that add independence.  The Statesman has a vaulted great room that is open to the kitchen that has two islands with lots of wide open space for mingling. There's a bonus room and two en-suite bedrooms on the second floor.

This custom designed multi-gen home has 4,364 Sq Ft. 5 bedrooms. 4.5 bathrooms. The owner's suite is upstairs and Mom's bedroom suite with a big walk-in closet and private bath is downstairs. Two islands in the kitchen allow for lots of cooks in the kitchen, with easy interactions with whatever is happening in the breakfast, sitting, and keeping room. The Serengeti also has a home office and a prayer room.

#6 Multi-gen Floor Plan Layout - Space to add a small apartment

Multi-gen - Cotswold B

 

This custom home can have a small apartment inside, with private living quarters! It can have as many as 3550 square feet (with an optional huge bonus room over the great room) with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths. Here's where the apartment can go: Take a look at the right side of the main floor.

Lots of possibilities, with this popular plan.

Ask us about all the possibilities.

In addition to massive walls of windows to capture natural light, there is a sun room off the kitchen. The basement rendering indicating a gameroom, storage, office and gym can become a living room, kitchenette, bathroom and a couple of bedrooms. As with all small apartments within a home, check with local ordinances, zoning, community covenants and your builder for regulations regarding single family dwellings.
