Would you believe a luxury home at under 2,500 square feet? You'll find several here. Small doesn't have to mean cramped or uncomfortable. These designs were chosen especially for their versatility and affordability.

Abe Lincoln most likely would have looked upon this log home as a palace. And he would have been correct! A rustically royal welcome extends from the wraparound porch, inviting one and all into a comfortable interior. To the right of the foyer, a two-story great room enhanced by a raised-hearth fireplace sets a spirited country mood. Nearby, a snack bar joins the living area with an efficient, U-shaped kitchen and an attached nook. Two family bedrooms, a full bath and a utility room with space for a washer and dryer complete the first floor. The second-floor master suite features amenities that create a private, restful getaway. Curl up in the window seat with a good book or enjoy fresh air from your own private balcony. The view will enable you to see for miles. A walk-in closet, a soothing master bath and a loft/study for quiet contemplation complete this special retreat.

This classic stucco design provides a cool retreat in anv climate. From the covered porch, enter the skylit foyer to find an arched ceiling leading to the central gathering room with its raised-hearth fireplace and terrace access. A connecting corner dining room is conveniently located near the amenity-filled kitchen that features a large pantry, a snack bar and a separate breakfast area. The large master bedroom includes terrace access and a master bath with a whirlpool tub, a separate shower and plenty of closet space. A second bedroom and a study that can be converted to a bedroom complete thiswonderful plan.
