This graceful country home, Plan HMAFAPW01274 from Homeplans.com, invites the outdoors in with a triple skylight above the great room, a front porch and a roomy rear deck.

As a sweet touch, who could resist the cupola perched atop the roof?

The compact plan packs a lot of living into 1,455 square feet of finished space.

Choose the standard basement foundation option and double your space.

Inside the house, the vaulted main gathering space features a cozy fireplace and a large window.

Nearby, the spacious kitchen holds a small island for additional counter area and flows right into the vaulted dining nook.

A niche here is the perfect spot for a buffet table or china hutch.

The laundry room doubles as a mud room, with a closet ready to receive coats as you head in from the deck.

On the opposite side of the plan, the master suite features a private bath and walk-in closet.
