L-shaped house plans can be a great way to get more parking and storage on a not-very-wide lot. The side-entry garages keep the focus on the entryways for greater curb appeal. This collection of L-shaped house plans offers a variety of styles from ultra-modern to simply traditional.
This farmhouse boasts classic curb appeal with a garage that opens to the side. The garage can fit three vehicles and doesn’t detract from the stunning exterior. A convenient mudroom with built-ins connects the garage to the main house. Inside, a gourmet kitchen with an impressive island looks out to the open dining and living room. By opening the sliding glass doors in the dining room, owners can create indoor-outdoor flow that’s perfect for summer entertaining.
The primary suite on the main floor features a sizeable bathroom and walk-in closet. Upstairs there are three bedrooms along with a bonus room that can be utilized as a media room.
The side garage of this Craftsman adds to the overall curb appeal with its timber and stone accents. A mudroom connects the three-car garage to the main house to minimize clutter. Adjacent to the mudroom is a spacious laundry room. Owners will be impressed with the massive kitchen and prep island, which adds counter space. Speaking of storage, there’s a walk-in pantry with built-in shelves around the corner from the kitchen. In the mornings, pour yourself a cup of coffee at the handy coffee bar and take it outside to the covered deck.
We’re fans of the mixed materials featured on the exterior of this L-shaped house plan. The two-car garage has a mix of siding and stone, adding to the overall curb appeal. Also adding to the curb appeal are the grand upstairs windows, with more in back. The open living room features double sliding glass doors out to the covered patio. There’s another set of sliding glass doors in the dining room that provide excellent indoor-outdoor flow.
The L-shape of this modern farmhouse creates an elegant courtyard entryway. A charming front porch welcomes guests into the formal foyer and then to the open living room. Lovely windows in the living room look out to the rear porch. The kitchen features an island for meal prep with a level eating bar for casual meals. Next to the kitchen is a cozy dining nook for a more elevated experience.
The primary suite sits at one end of the home with a grand full bathroom and walk-in closet. Two guest bedrooms reside on the other side of the home for additional privacy.
The crisp, sharp lines of this house plan give it a modern futuristic vibe. Oversized windows throughout the home add to the modern style and the windows on the side entryway garage elevate its curb appeal. An elegant foyer welcomes guests into the home and down the long hallway is the spacious living room. Before entering the fun, guests can pick up a drink at the wet bar in the hall. This space is great for hosting as it has stunning sliding glass doors that open to a veranda. Owners can prepare meals indoors in the luxe kitchen or outside in the outdoor kitchen.
This ranch style house plan is a great option for owners who love to host friends and family. The L-shape of this plan allows the two-car garage to be seemingly unnoticeable when looking at the home head on. Inside there is a large family room that takes up much of the space. The kitchen features a walk-in pantry for additional storage and a built-in bar top so guests can sit and keep the chef/owner company. Downstairs is where the real fun begins if you choose to finish this space. There’s a massive second family room that can easily be transformed into an entertainment and game room. There are two additional bedrooms with walk-in closets on this level as well as an impressive storage closet.
Get back to the basics with this attractive L-shaped house plan. To not draw attention from the charming exterior, the three-car garage features adorable windows and opens to the side. The garage opens to a mudroom, which connects to the walk-in pantry and laundry room. A lovely design feature of this plan is the vaulted ceiling in the family room. The covered and screened porches also boast vaulted ceilings. Owners will love the natural openness of the space and the light that streams in through the large windows. The beamed ceiling in the primary suite is an elegant touch and the spacious bathroom and walk-in closet make this a great place to unwind.
Here’s a unique house plan with elegant curb appeal. A two-car garage opens to the side and creates a lavish courtyard. Leading into the home through the garage, a mudroom, laundry room, and walk-in pantry are conveniently all next to each other. A pocket door in the laundry room connects to one of the primary suite’s walk-in closets for easy access. The primary suite has two walk-in closets in addition to a stunning full bathroom with a freestanding tub. Owners can also enjoy views of the back patio.
