Ever strong in Arizona custom homes is the split floor plan. The split floor plan is not limited to high-end custom homes. It is a very popular floor plan for homes of any size. Simply, this floor plan places the master bedroom on one side of the house. The secondary bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the house. The family room, kitchen and public rooms of the house are placed between the bedrooms in the center of the house. This sets the master bedroom apart from the rest of the house helping achieve the master retreat feel. The floor plan may not work for everyone, but for families with teenagers it works out great. Loud music or slumber party laughter doesn’t usually travel to the master retreat on the other side of a house. It is sometimes referred to as the Mother-in-Law floor plan. This floor plan works with any home style from Santa Barbara, Tuscan, Spanish Colonial to traditional ranch.
The attached floor plan is an example of a split floor plan. The master retreat is on one side of the house and the secondary bedrooms are on the other side of the house. The master retreat has a guest bedroom on the same side of the house. In this plan, the guest bedroom includes two entrances, one from within the house and a private exterior door located under the covered loggia. This floor plan can be modified if the entrance within the house is not desired creating more privacy for the guest quarters as well as the master retreat.
