The striking blend of materials, sloping angles and decorative moldings used in plan 2957 create a warm and inviting feeling.
From the foyer with its walk-in closet to an inviting, open living/dining area that features a central fireplace and the full width terrace accessible by French doors, this breathtaking home is sure to please no matter the season.
This coveted model with its skylight illuminating the staircase to a mezzanine is a beautiful 1,625 sq. ft. oasis that lends itself as easily to outdoor living in the summer as it does to cozy indoor living in the winter months.

This pretty little bungalow would work equally beautifully as a 4-season getaway or as a charming city home. A trio of cheerful gables puts a charming face forward. An open vestibule conveniently services front, back and garage access.

Within we find a perfect open floorplan with subtle separation of spaces. A two-sided fireplace provides warmth to the vaulted living room and social kitchen island, while the dining area nestles into a sunny alcove. The master bedroom is situated privately behind the stairs and enjoys semi-private access to a 4-piece bathroom with integrated laundry.

Upstairs, family and friends will appreciate a private bedroom level with bathroom.

In addition to the double garage, storage is plentiful in the bonus space above.
This would be a great option oriented face-forward on a lot and would be equally lovely on a corner lot.

While away your time in this airy beauty in the summertime or anytime. Simple and distinctive lines front and back ensure a handsome presence from any angle.

The interior features a well-positioned staircase and open views of beautiful spaces all around. Stylish features include 9 foot ceilings, abundant windows, and corner fireplace. An expansive zoned deck is enjoyed by all of the forward facing rooms. A covered deck to the side is ideal for sheltered bug-free dining or recreation.

Always coveted, a generous master bedroom on the main floor is enhanced by a corner fireplace, walk-in closet, access to a luxurious 5-piece bathroom and garden doors onto the deck.

Upstairs, two additional bedrooms enjoy generous storage and a shared bathroom.

An undeveloped basement with walkout is a blank slate for your inspiration! This casual home is appreciated as a vacation getaway or four-season residence.

Sloping lots present not only challenges, but opportunities as well! Capture the views with this basement entry home!

The basement proposes a home office with garden doors plus a large flexible space which would be ideal as a games room with media centre.

The main level captures views from the very open activity area, from the island kitchen, dining area, living room or the heart-stopping solarium with windows on three sides and two-sided fireplace on the fourth. For an open-air experience, step onto the oversize deck and enjoy the breeze.

Dual master suites, one on the main floor and one upstairs provide comfort and privacy and two additional bedrooms ensure room for all.

Proposed cladding for this model is in natural tones and materials, for a natural presence.

An ideal house for any time of year. Warm and inviting, it does not skimp on windows and offers a remarkable blend of materials, sloping roof, decorative mouldings and angles. The exterior is just a hint of the charm within.

The entrance foyer is appointed with a large storage closet, indispensable in such a home. Passing through, a beautiful living room space, a central fireplace, French doors and a cathedral ceiling, as well as a skylight illuminating the staircase. Further, a large kitchen allows for a table to seat at least 6 with a rear view assured by a projection filled with windows. On this same floor as well, a master bedroom with a partial view to the rear, benefiting from a large storage closet and an adjoining full bathroom.

On the upper level, two other good sized bedrooms will meet the expectations of their occupants. Other lovely appointments include a full bathroom and a mezzanine, always appreciated in a cathedral space for an unimpeded view of the beautiful living room below. A “must” when we talk “chalet”.

Here is a message I got through the “Email your comments to our President & CEO” link on our Web site:

“I keep seeing a photo of your house plan W2957 on various house plan sites and do not feel it does justice to your design. I purchased the same plan, (in reverse) approximately 5 years ago directly from you and built overlooking Cumberland River, near Albany, KY. The house turned out gorgeous, even beyond what I had hoped for! We obviously went a little overboard but it is the most beautiful home I have seen on the river and one of the most beautiful for a vacation home I have seen in its size class. I’m sure some of the homes in the coastal areas would surpass it, but I have seen few in more rural areas look better. Each time I have seen the photo image you are using I have been tempted to contact you and possibly make some of the photos I have available to you but do not know how that works. I have some great digital pictures of the front of the home, as well as some of the back actually from the water. Just bragging, but you guys know that ultimately the magic is always in the design and whoever designed this house plan did a fantastic job! I did add a second window in the stone front similar to your larger square footage plan. Even though the small window is in the master closet I thought it added balance to the outside and I tend to be a symmetrical person. Thanks, Richard Humble”

I keep saying that Drummond House Plans have the best customers on the market and this is another proof of it !  Mr. Humble wrote this to me during the Holidays and I can tell you that I can receive that kind of e-mail everyday.

If, like Mr. Humble, you are proud of your new Drummond house, and you want to share some photos with us and the visitors on our website, All you have to do is to send them to us by email at:  We will surely upload your house in our Photo Gallery.

Thanks again Mr. Humble and Best Wishes to all your family!

DrummondHousePlans takes great pleasure in offering one of the most impressive models in its vacation and chalet collections.

A rustic tone is set by strong use of natural materials. Ideally perched on a sloping lot with a walk-out basement, this chalet showcases an expansive deck and screened porch to take advantage of views.

As a vacation retreat or full-time residence, this five bedroom/3.5 baths design is spectacular to look at and divine to live in. A sprawling 3506 sq.ft. resort-style chalet allows for a home theater, kitchen open to sunroom, main-floor master suite with walk-in closet, private bath, and much more. A second-level with bedrooms and bath has mezzanine outlook. The walkout basement with bedrooms enjoys a fireplace and family room. The three levels of living ensure space for all!
