Features of a Waterfront House Plan

Check out these features you might enjoy in your waterfront home!

Building a waterfront home is one custom home option that many Marylanders can’t pass up. Life on the water is a breeze. In choosing a waterfront home, one might see slightly different floor plan options than for those of a regular house. A waterfront house plan might give you some unique features fit for the landscape, which you will appreciate as a waterfront homeowner.

Large Windows & Doors

If there is any structural feature of a house that sets waterfront ones apart, it is the windows and doors. One will want to make the most of the pristine views of the river or the Bay, depending on your location, and the best way to do that is to implement wide, tall windows and doors. There’s nothing like seeing the vista of the water every morning!

Outdoor Living Spaces

Living on the water often draws people out into nature and on the water. At home, this means spending time in outdoor living spaces like the patio, deck, or balcony. Some homes will have multiple outdoor platforms, such as a common deck plus a balcony extending from the master bedroom. No matter the configuration, an outdoor living space is a sure staple of a waterfront house plan.

A Wide Range of Styles & Sizes

Waterfront floor plans come in a vast range of styles and sizes. It can be as small or as large as one wants, and it can be as sleek or ornate as one desires. Of course, the size of your home will depend on how large your home site is, which Shore-Line Construction can help you secure.

Customized Floor Plans

The waterfront house plan itself does not necessarily have a key set of features but rather is customizable and flexible. A custom home is all about configuring a floor plan to meet a family’s wants and needs that an existing home never could. 

Other Potential Features

Some helpful features that a waterfront homeowner might nevertheless appreciate include an open floor plan and a mudroom. Open-concept designs create the broadest view of the water possible, while a mudroom helps relieve your home of muddy, sandy shoes and feet. Of course, these two features are just the start of what is possible in your new home.
