Every floorplan features a first-floor primary owner’s suite, an open kitchen floorplan that flows well into the spacious living areas, and abundant natural light illuminating through the windows that overlook your private courtyard.

First floor primary owner’s suites are now more popular as it combines the advantages of 1st floor open concept living with the style and space of multi-level designs. It can also be a good investment both economically and for those who wish to age with their home.
Another advantage of 1st floor living is the reduction of energy use. Homeowners that have the house to themselves on a day-to-day basis may decide to only heat or cool the main level so extra energy is not wasted in unused portions of the house.

Traditionally two-story homes feature the primary suite on the second floor so parents can be near their children, especially when they are babies and young children, but once the kids move out are you truly getting the best possible use from your old layout?
Placing the owner’s suite on the first floor also means it will be closer to the living room and kitchen, which is more convenient for residents within a home, as well as anyone with a physical challenge. Empty nesters tend to prefer a 1st floor primary owner’s suite since they do not have to go up and down stairs as often. A 1st floor owner’s suite allows families to live in the house a long time without having to remodel to fit future needs. Once the kids have gone off to college or find a job and move out, the guest bedrooms can provide family and friends a place to stay when they come back visit.
