You can maximise your indoor and outdoor living spaces with a 2 storey house plan Choosing a 2 storey Landmark house plan allows you to maximise your indoor living space without taking up valuable land, especially if your section or building site is small. By building up, you can still enjoy the spaciousness of a large home without it encroaching on your valuable outdoor areas like courtyards, patios or garden. You can create separate family areas with upstairs and downstairs living We all know that teenagers need their own space as much as parents do. That’s where a 2 storey Landmark house plan can make a huge difference in creating separate family areas through split level living. For example, the teenager’s retreat can be upstairs away from the open plan living/dining/kitchen spaces on the ground level, or vice versa. You can capture the views from the second storey The benefit of having a range of 2 storey house plan options available is that you can choose a Landmark house design that’s going to suit the most important features of your section, like the views. If your views need to be captured from a second level, then having your living and entertaining areas upstairs is key. You can also choose to locate your master suite on the same level so you can enjoy the views from the time you wake up to when you go to bed.
You can gain privacy from the neighbours Building your new home in a subdivision can mean that maintaining privacy from the neighbours and foot traffic on shared pathways can be challenging. You might want to consider choosing a 2 storey Landmark house plan with the bedroom areas on the second floor to provide increased privacy. This layout also has the advantage that visitors’ only see your tidy living areas and not the kid’s messy bedrooms! You can increase the street appeal of your home with a 2 storey house plan design It’s well known that street appeal is an important factor in increasing the value of your home. The beauty of a 2 storey house plan is that it has more design features that are viewable from the road than a single storey. For example, you don’t just see the garage door, front door or a single window but instead you get to appreciate the architecture of the whole house from eye level.
