The Magnolia plan is one of the most popular plans here at Collins Builders. This two-story home boasts 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 2 living spaces, and an office. A formal dining room, large kitchen, and expansive island make entertaining in this home a dream. The master bedroom has his and hers closets, and the bath has both a tub and shower for the perfect retreat. The second floor has 4 bedrooms centered around a large game room. A two story foyer and two story family room make the home feel even larger than it is.

Because of all this space, the Magnolia plan is perfect for large or multi-generational families, and is easily modified to fit your exact needs. Changing the family room to 1 story adds over 350 square feet to the second floor, giving you plenty of space to create a second master, add a theater room, install a second laundry room and expand two of the bedrooms, or even add a 6th bedroom and 4th bath. Bumping out the back wall of the nook gives you space to have a full dining room off the kitchen or banquette seating. You could then turn the dining room into the study and incorporate the existing study into the master suite to create a large closet, or expanded bed and bath. Bumping out the master bedroom allows for the option of creating a first floor guest suite in the study area.

If you love to cook, the nook can easily be incorporated into the kitchen space to add more cabinetry and prep space. With this option you could move the sink under the rear window and put a prep sink in the island. Bumping out either the nook or the master bedroom creates a perfect spot on the back porch for a summer kitchen. Adding a pergola to the front off the dining room creates a unique outdoor patio perfect for watching the sunset.

With a wider lot you can move the garage from the front of the home to the side, increasing the flexibility for a mudroom and large front porch. This plan is also very functional with a side entry garage, which can be a good option if you have a deep lot.

As one of our most popular and versatile plans, the Magnolia could be the perfect fit for your new home!
