Magnolia Manor

The Benjamin is a contemporary home plan with a West-Indies flair. Inside, the Benjamin features an open floor plan. Straight lines, a flat tile roof, Bermuda shutters and a stucco finish give curbside appeal to this house plan.

The Benjamin’s portico leads straight to the foyer with an intricate stepped ceiling. Beyond the foyer is the spacious great room that boasts a beautifully vaulted and beamed ceiling. Next to the great room is an open dining room and kitchen. The kitchen features a bar for offering drinks, a center island and a walk-in pantry. The dining room and great room have multiple sliding glass doors that lead to the home’s best feature – the outdoor area. Beyond the great room is a Florida Room. This is an air conditioned space that provides for casual space. By opening the sliding glass doors, it acts as a covered patio. To the right of the dining room is an open courtyard and covered cabana.    The cabana offers a full outdoor kitchen and serving counter.

 The Magnolia Manor has a warm, farmhouse feel.  From the moment you enter the foyer; your eyes are drawn up to the high ceiling and then to your left where the Dining Room has it’s own space and beautiful ceiling. The Great Room is just ahead and allows for views out the back to the outdoor fireplace in the center of the Lanai for family gatherings. 

The Great Room is a generous size opening to the Kitchen and Nook. There is a spot for a wood burning or electric fireplace and the books you will read while enjoying your fire. The Guest bedrooms are all off the Great Room. Two have walk-in closets. There are two bathrooms to share for the three bedrooms with one having two vanities to allow more room to get ready. 

The Kitchen features an Range Hood as a piece that can be customized as you like. Just off the Kitchen is a Butler’s Pantry for those extra items needed when entertaining. Beyond the Butler’s Pantry is an ample-sized area for storing larger items away from site. A fun little surprise is the half-sized door leading to the garage – just toss your groceries straight from the car to the Pantry! 

Around the corner from the Kitchen is the Master Suite. This unique layout is a welcome change. A large walk-in closet with additional spots for linens and shoes flows into the Master Bath and additionally the Laundry Room! 

Upstairs is a large area that is limitless on options for use. A bathroom is conveniently located so your hobby can keep you busy without leaving the second floor. Another surprise is through a “secret” door. The imagination of a child comes to mind – use this as a hideaway or reading room.
