The Senepol is our most popular house plan, so it’s about time we do a featured design blog post about it! We’ve got several going up around the country, a couple of which should be done this fall, and we are so stinking excited to finally get some pictures of this plan! But for now, you’ll just have to make do with the renderings.
A little history lesson: One of the things that spurred the beginning of Perch Plans was the high volume of inquiries we received about a couple custom homes on our Tim Brown Architecture website. We had so many requests to purchase the Modern Farmhouse and Modern Victorian plans, but of course, as those are custom projects, we don’t resell them.
But you have to give the people what they want, right? So part of why we created Perch Plans was to provide other designs in the Modern Farmhouse style. Not everyone can afford to hire an architect and pay the fees for a full-service custom home, but we believe that everyone still deserves to have a gorgeous, well-designed home that they love. Thus, Perch Plans was started, and the Senepol was one of the very first house plans to debut on our website.
At 3523 square feet, the Senepol is our largest Modern Farmhouse plan, and currently the largest of any plan we offer on Perch. It’s perfect for big families that like open living areas to spend time together, but also want the room for everyone to have their own space. Our Senepol Perchasers love that this home truly accommodates the capacity and flexibility they desire.
The generous living room is great for hosting friends and neighbors, while the expansive kitchen and dining area provide all the room and organization you need to become a dinner party virtuoso. The kitchen is full of coveted features, with a butler's pantry, wine/coffee bar, island seating for three, and an office desk space, plus all the storage space you could possibly desire for your gadgets, utensils, knick knacks and more.
A secluded master suite and study also allow for privacy and peace from the rest of the home, with the screened porch and sunny hallway creating visual separation. Vaulted ceilings and large windows give the bedroom a bright and open feeling, crafting the ideal setting for restful nights and cozy mornings. Upstairs are three well-proportioned bedrooms, and a large landing to provide a hang out or homework area for kids.
One sign of a good design? The back looks just as good as the front. The Senepol house plan has a spacious screened porch and separate covered patio so your family can take full advantage of enjoying time outside together. Plus all the large windows on the rear of the house allow for an abundance of natural light throughout the interior spaces.
Of course one house can’t be right for everyone, but it is easy to see how the Senepol fits the needs of so many different families. If you’ve got a wide, empty lot just begging for a simple yet refined Modern Farmhouse design, be sure and check out the Senepol house plan.
