If you are looking for a place to put a porch swing, take a look at the Hopkins. The long, covered porch of this country-contemporary home sweeps across most of the front facade and along one side.

This plan is designed to please families who want room for both individual and group activities. Gathering spaces, formal and informal, are at the core, master suite to the right, living and dining area to the left. Secondary bedrooms are on the top floor.The spacious master suite is more than just a place to sleep. A fireplace spreads its warmth throughout the suite. The huge, private bathroom features a shower, twin basins, separate toilet and bidet, roomy walk-in closet and a recessed spa to erase the tensions of a busy day. A private entrance to the back deck lets you enjoy the sun, weather permitting.

The family room, with two-story ceiling and fireplace with built-in wood box, is a cozy place for family and friends to watch television or play the latest board game. Nestled between the family room and master suite is a handy utility room.

A raised dishwasher, cooktop, freezer and large walk-in pantry make the walk-through kitchen a dream for the cook in the house. This configuration allows meals to be served easily in the recessed breakfast nook or in the adjacent dining room.

A small home office, full bathroom, and living room with fireplace and windows galore com-plete the first floor plan.

On the top level are two modest bedrooms. One is octagonal in shape, with coffered vault and windows all around. The other, perfect for use as a guest suite, has a private bath. In addition, there is a sewing room, which could be used as another bedroom. Topping off the home is skylit, 443-square-foot unfinished attic.

The lowest level houses a two-car garage, with a roomy dark room for the photographer in the family, a half-bath and extra storage area.
