This two-story beach-style design offers functionality and ease with a modern layout. We love the wide front porch. On the main level, the living room flows into the open dining area, the kitchen, and the rear deck.

The primary suite and a secondary bedroom sit on the right side of the plan. Another bedroom suite and an additional bedroom rest upstairs.

Ideal for a coastal location, this beach house plan includes plenty of outdoor living space. Living, kitchen, and porch spaces flow into each other, offering great flexibility on the main floor. Conveniently located on this level, the primary suite makes it easy to age in place and features two walk-in closets.

Near the front, a versatile study could also become a guest suite. Check out the well-organized laundry room (take a look at these clever laundry room ideas from Good Housekeeping). Two additional guest suites, a loft, and a balcony can be found on the second floor.

This contemporary design puts the open great room and kitchen at the center of the home. An island adds a place for casual meals and even more counter space in the kitchen. A wet bar in the great room is a fun detail.

Highlights of the primary suite include two walk-in closets, private access to the rear patio, and an extra-big shower. Work from home in the flexible study near the foyer. You’ll find plenty of storage on the lower level.

Looking for a plan with farmhouse flair? Here you go! This beach design gives you country curb appeal with a wide front porch and a metal roof. Inside, the great room opens to the lanai (which features an outdoor kitchen) via sliding glass doors.

The open kitchen includes lots of counter space, an island, and a walk-in pantry. The primary suite rests at the back of the plan and gives you plenty of privacy and a spa-like bathroom. A versatile guest/media room completes the second level.

Here’s a stylish beach house plan (the Onaway from Visbeen Architects) with country details (like board-and-batten siding and a gable roof). A deep covered deck allows for easy indoor/outdoor living. In the kitchen, a big island features a pub-height table at the end for a relaxed vibe. The spacious butler’s pantry is sure to come in handy.

Upstairs, the primary suite impresses with dual sinks and a generous tub. The laundry room is conveniently located nearby. An additional bedroom and a home office are also on this level. Guest quarters can be finished to include a bedroom, a bunk room, and a full bath (check out these cool bunk rooms from The Spruce). An optional finished basement gives you even more room to expand.

This plan takes full advantage of views with two levels of outdoor living. The kitchen’s snack bar adds casual seating within sight of the great room and dining area. Need more space? A flexible study next to the foyer can easily become a guest room.

Located on the second floor, the laundry room makes it easy to throw in a load. The primary suite (with private access to the deck), two secondary bedrooms, and a loft round out this level.
