The Whimbrel is a modern take on one of Coastal Signature’s most well received plans during the initial 2007 model park launch of Hampton Lake. The vaulted Great Room ceiling allows for a second row of glass above the screen porch slider which envelopes the home in light. The Owner’s Suite not only offers an impressively sized bath and dressing room, but also convenient, direct access to the laundry room. The oversized Owner’s Entry provides ample storage for busy families or active retirees, and the Flex Space Over Garage could be used as a guest suite with separate sitting area and bath, or as an additional large entertaining space.

While the natural flow of the Marsh Wren’s first floor plan is evident the moment you arrive at the foyer, it is the second floor balcony that is its most distinctive and impressive feature. Enjoy extended lake or garden views from this space and entertain in the adjacent media room, or meander back downstairs to join guests in the formal dining room, so rarely found in modern plans. The expansive kitchen space also contains a view-oriented breakfast nook. At approximately 2800 SF, the Marsh Wren is the ideal plan for those who want to downsize without sacrificing space to entertain friends or host family.

The vaulted Great Room and Screen Porch belie the Sandpiper’s efficient 2900 SF footprint. This home truly lives large, with both open concept common spaces, and private zones like the first floor Study and Owner’s Suite with extended sitting area. Enjoy the great outdoors from your 12’x 32’ screened porch with optional outdoor kitchen, or retreat to the Flex Space over Garage for games, movies, or quiet reflection.
