Architectural Style Profile: Craftsman

One of the most popular architectural styles for homes in Rowlett TX is Craftsman. Although the Craftsman style originated in the late 1800’s, it has endured throughout the years.

Craftsman style is so named because it originally focused on the craftsmanship of hand-made materials, including interior décor elements such as furniture and lamps. Craftsman-style homes were designed to be more comfortable and down-to-earth than the elaborate Victorian mansions that dominated streetscapes during the second half of the 1800s. Modern interpretations of Craftsman designs have refined the style and brought it up to date with new materials, fresh colors and cleaner lines.

Hallmarks of the style include gabled roofs, decorative roof brackets or exposed rafter ends, a mixture of exterior materials such as siding with shingles, and porches with square or tapered posts. Craftsman-style homes are meant to be cozy, inviting and relaxing family homes.

If you’re a fan of the Craftsman style, we think you’ll love our new homes in the Magnolia Landing community in Rowlett TX. You can choose between Craftsman homes on 60’ lots or Cottage homes on 40’ lots. The Craftsman homes have front-loading garages, while the Cottages are aligned in a mews setting with alley-facing garages.

Phase 2 is open now, with available lots to build one of our exciting floor plans.

The 519 Bradley Collection home design is two story Craftsman-style home with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in a 2,562 square foot plan. A 2-car front-loading garage is standard with this plan, but buyers have an option to extend it to a 3-car garage.

Open-concept living areas provide an ideal place to relax or mingle with guests. The spacious kitchen has a convenient walk-in pantry. The first-floor main bedroom has an en suite bath with tub, shower, two vanities and a walk-in closet. An additional first-floor bedroom with en suite bath would be ideal for guests, an older child or multigenerational living.

On the second floor, a loft-style game room plus an additional flex space offer plenty of room for play, hobbies or work. Two bedrooms on the second floor share a full bath. The 519 Bradley Collection starts in the $530s.
