At just under 3,000 square feet, there is plenty of room for everyone.

If you’re looking for a classic, Southern house plan that doesn’t include stairs, then this house plan 2049 by C. Brandon Ingram is perfect. It comes in at 2,917 square feet and includes three true bedrooms and three and a half baths. A large kitchen opens up to a living room centered around a fireplace.

Why We Love It

The exterior is oh-so inviting, and the beauty of this design is in its traditional simplicity. Atlanta-based architect Brandon Ingram imagined Bellewood Cottage to look right at home on any street. The Southern vernacular plan features a wide front porch that’s just begging for a set of rocking chairs. Ingram’s advice to anyone who is looking to build it is straightforward. “Don’t overdo it. This is a house best left simple and honest to let its subtlety and proportions shine,” he says.

With features to suit every phase of life and a sweeping front porch perfect for laid-back living, you’ll be calling this place home for years to come.
