Simple yet Unique Farmhouse Plans - The Marine Farmhouse

Open floor plan, front porch, and rear porch beautiful dormers

2 story, 3 Bedroom, 2 ½ Bath, 2499 square feet

Marine Farmhouse - Is this a contemporary cottage house plan or a modern American farmhouse home design?  The Marine Farmhouse exemplifies the kind of homes we are trying to create at Simply Elegant Home Designs.  The home demonstrates a comfortable blend of traditional form and subtle contemporary details wrapped around an extremely flexible and livable floor plan.

This simple yet unique house plan was originally designed and constructed for a site that had a beautiful back yard setting of woods and a stream.  The house plan takes advantage of that by spreading the interior spaces out across the width and through the abundant use of windows.

One approaches the home via a continuous open porch, unencumbered by columns spanning the entire width of the house.  An exterior “nook” provides the perfect place to have a cup of coffee and to watch the world go by.  A similar open porch at the rear of the home provides an environment with more solitude.

The interior of the main floor features a functional mudroom, a mini office and an open floor plan filled with light from all directions.  Upstairs 3 bedrooms are neatly tucked in under a sloping ceiling - just like grandmas house.  Cleverly placed dormers provide the interior spaces with additional natural light and views.


The Marine Farmhouse plan comes with a crawl space foundation.  This could easily be adapted by your local Architect or Builder to accommodate a full basement, or other lot configurations.


Due to licensing agreements this home cannot be built in Washington , Ramsey or Hennepin Counties in Minnesota.
