The Wellington floor plan represents what an increasing number of home buyers are looking for these days. As potential buyers explore existing homes and even some new homes in Auburn AL, they’re not always finding the rooms and space they realize they now need. The past year has demonstrated the need for more flexible home designs that can serve a variety of needs and purposes.

The Wellington, at heart, is a two-story home with traditional, Craftsman, and Euro exterior options, already offering  the chance to personalize your home. Inside, you’ll find five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 4,131 square feet. Obviously, this is a home that suits large families, multi-generational families, as well as those who want enough space to work from home comfortably or even homeschool. These are the basics of the home, but there is so much more that will quickly win you over to this adaptable and spacious floor plan.

For instance, the open floor plan has been hugely popular for years and still remains popular. However, there’s a growing desire for homes with a bit more definition and privacy. After a year of trying to work in peace or just get some time to oneself, doors and separate rooms are looking pretty nice. Plus, as we start gathering with family and friends again, plenty of people are looking to show off their new cooking skills with more formal dinners, making separate dining rooms for entertaining and family gatherings particularly attractive. The Wellington offers all of this and more.

As soon as you walk into the foyer, which is open to the second floor, you get a sense of the open airness of this home, while also immediately experiencing how the layout offers more options. On one side of the foyer is the separate dining room, and on the other side is a more formal living room, ideal for entertaining. Both feature arched entrances and the living room even has the option of being turned into a den or an additional bedroom.

In the center of the home are the stairs to the second floor. Past the stairs you enter into the more open layout, which families still like, thanks to the ease of communication and the ability to interact or keep an eye on the little ones. There’s a spacious family room, complete with fireplace that connects through another arched doorway to the breakfast dining area, ideal for more casual dining. From there, you reach the large kitchen with a wealth of counter and cabinet space, as well as an island and pantry. Finally, past the kitchen is a bedroom and a full bathroom, ideal for older parents who may be living with you, older teens, or simply as a guest room or even a home office. It’s this flexibility that makes the home design so appealing.

Upstairs, you’re greeted with more unexpected perks. There’s a skylight that adds to the openness of the central part of the second floor thanks to the open stairway and the loft located next to it. The loft area provides a great space for older kids to hang out, turning it into a game room or even their own study area. It could just as easily be used for various hobbies.The rest of the floor contains four bedrooms, including the incredible owner’s suite with a tray ceiling, a spa-like ensuite bathroom with separate shower and tub, and a his-and-hers walk-in closet. All of the additional upstairs bedrooms include walk-in closets, along with two full bathrooms, one being a Jack-and-Jill bathroom shared between two bedrooms. Finally, the second floor is finished off with a spacious laundry room for added convenience, especially as it is large enough to hold cleaning supplies and a vacuum.

These are just some of the highlights of the Wellington floor plan. Take a look at the detailed floor plans and see all of the other extras, including plenty of storage space.
