About "Colchester Palace"

Your home is your castle – you’ve heard that said – and this house plan proves to be just that.  This is a palace that offers elegance, openness, and room for expansion.  The exterior boasts shutters, varied window styles; block pane, diamond-shape, colonial grid, half-round toppers, as well as turrets, gable roofs, a stone façade, copper awning, coach lights, stone arches, and stone deco trim.  A covered front porch and entryway are a welcome first step into this luxury home plan. Entering the grand foyer, your eyes are immediately drawn to the sweeping stairs ascending to the second story with a wet bar sitting in a classic way under the stairs. Large decorative pillars define the parameters of the grand foyer from the elegant dining room, family room and gourmet kitchen. The elegant dining room has a large walk in closet and sits adjacent to the kitchen and pantry for ease in serving family and friends. A hall between the dining room and kitchen leads to a two car garage with courtyard entry.  A motor court sits between the two car garage off the dining hall and a second two car garage at the back of the home. A second set of stairs are in the rear garage and go up to the second story. Entering from the rear garage, a powder room and utility room aid in cleaning up from coming in from outside. A game room at the very back of the home plan offers a place for family entertainment or entertaining guests. The patio is an open sunlight-filled space with built in grill and fireplace that accommodates both casual gatherings and dining. Natural flow to and from the family room and easy access to the     backyard make this the perfect perch for guests.  Through French doors, enter the family room where a wall of windows blurs the lines between indoors and out.  The vaulted 22 foot ceiling and warming fireplace with built-ins add to the luxurious nature of this home.  The family room, gourmet kitchen and breakfast room with built-ins, are seamlessly integrated, being separated only by a free standing breakfast bar that has two dishwashers. A free standing center island adds to the open design and state-of-the-art appliances and granite counter tops that prove a winning combination in this hard-working cooking space, ideal for entertaining. The luxurious master suite boasts a bay window, trey ceiling, fireplace, garden tub, separate shower, his and hers vanities and a large wardrobe with built-ins. A family bedroom with walk in closet and private bath have access to the cozy study in the turret, where you can sit and read as the light shines through. These room could also be turned into an in-law suite. The study has an 18 foot ceiling. Upstairs are stunning views to the two story rooms below. Two family bedrooms, each with full baths, walk-in closets, and walk in closets share space with four future areas that can be used as more bedrooms, a gym, office, sewing room, theatre, or whatever you can dream of.  Don’t just dream, take a good look at this luxurious European house plan, and then just give us a call!


"At DDG we provide the same attention to detail in our pre-drawn plans, that we give to our new home designs. We review  every detail of the home plans, as if we were designing it for our own family."
