Ready for a Larger Home? Here Are Our Top Floor Plans for Move-Up Buyers

Recognizing the need for a new home can be such an exciting time.  A new home means growth, renewal, or opportunity is happening in your life, and that’s something to be celebrated. And if that growth is literal — as in you’re adding new family members or your kids are growing bigger — then you need a home that caters to everyone’s needs.


As you look for a new home, remember that in addition to more space, it’s important to consider the home’s layout and features. Just because a space is bigger doesn’t always mean it’s more functional, and with a growing family, you likely need rooms with both size and purpose! 

In our experience building custom homes throughout Charlotte, move-up buyers are typically looking for these features:


  • Open-concept living areas where the family can spend time together without feeling crowded.
  • More yard space for family parties, a pool, or just for the kids to run around on a beautiful afternoon
  • Outdoor living space that can be made just as comfortable and purposeful as interior ones; think outdoor fireplaces, kitchens, seating arrangements, and more 
  • Flexible rooms that can be transformed into whatever the family needs at that time — a homework zone, playroom, home gym, guest bedroom, etc. 
  • Dedicated office space that doesn’t have to be shared with anything — or anyone — else
  • At least four bedrooms, so that everyone has a quiet and private place to call their own


If you are looking for a new home in Charlotte with all the features mentioned above, here are a few of our most popular floor plans that include them all:
