Floor Plan Profile: The Islander

Design your home with Glenn Layton, a leading custom home builder in Jacksonville FL, and add bonus spaces perfect for your family’s lifestyle. The Islander is the perfect start with fantastic indoor/outdoor living, a wealth of thoughtfully designed space, adaptability, and a wonderful coastal atmosphere.

The Islander is a four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom two story home with an external guest suite, and a total of 3,340 square feet. This home does a great job at capturing the spirit of the historic coastal architecture of the region and is a beauty, from every side and angle. Porches, expansive windows, a double-front-door entry, seamless flow between interior and exterior spaces, a pool, covered and open deck areas, smarthome technology and more are among the features of this eye-catching home design. Plus, when you work with Glenn Layton Homes, you can customize it even further to make sure it fits how you truly live.

The first floor of the Islander features a large, welcoming entry foyer, with a study off to one side, perfect for a home office, and the expansive owner’s suite on the other side, with its own access to the back deck area. With a powder room and a large laundry room located near the entry foyer, you then move further into the heart of the open-plan home, with a dream kitchen that includes a large pantry and a beautiful kitchen island. Next to the kitchen is the open dining room area, complete with a buffet shelf for entertaining and large holiday gatherings. From there, you flow to the spacious family room with a vaulted ceiling and a cozy fireplace for those chillier winter days along the coast. The family room is where you find the seamlessness of the indoor/outdoor living, thanks to large sliding glass doors that open up the space onto the covered porch, which includes a built-in grill.

The outdoor covered porch and open deck area act as a courtyard for your home, with the garage located further back in its own separate building. However, above the garage, and with exterior access, there’s a large guest suite ideal for visiting friends, but also for multi-generational living, especially with large families.

The second floor of the main home is a partial floor, in part due to the vaulted ceiling of the living room. It’s on this second floor that you’ll find additional large bedrooms, each with their own bath. In addition, there’s a spacious loft between the rooms, ideal for a wide variety of uses. From game rooms to media rooms, to a personal library, or whatever best suits your lifestyle, this space, along with the guest suite and the study, provide flexibility and adaptability as your needs and lifestyle grow and change.

The Islander is just one of the many home designs that incorporates a variety of flex spaces into the home design to give you freedom to use the space as you want at various points. You’re not restricted by lack of space when you choose one of the Glenn Layton homes. It’s one of the reasons, along with their dedication to creating custom coastal homes, as to why they’re trusted custom home builders in Jacksonville FL. Contact them to see how they can help you create your own dream coastal home.
