When it comes to colonial style homes, this two story modular by Professional Building Systems has it going on! While filming homes in the New England area, we had the opportunity to stop in at Southern New England Modular Homes who happened to have this lovely model on display.
I honestly don’t think we have ever toured any modular homes by Professional Building Systems until this one. I didn’t know too much about the company so I did a little digging.

They have hundreds of floor plans to choose from across a wide range of styles and build in several states. Those states include: CT, DE, MD, ME, MI, NH, NY, OH, PA, RI, VA, VT, WV

The outside of this beautiful model has that distinct look that most all colonial style homes have. It has a very prominent boxy shape and a massive amount of windows. The front is adorned with a nice covered porch surround the entryway, a mossy green vinyl siding and white trim around the windows.
Moving around to the back of the home, there are more windows, though not as many as on the front of the home. There are also two sets of sliding glass doors back here, one off the dining room and one off the family room. I think that’s pretty neat because you could build a full width deck on the back of the home and be able to access from either side of the home.
Stepping inside this home, you are immediately greeted with a big foyer. It has plenty of room to add a nice table and at the end, it has a very nice size coat closet.
To the right of the foyer is an open doorway into the living room. To me its more of a formal area since this home also has a family room, but that’s neither here nor there. It has to big windows looking out of the front of the house and plenty of room to add a lot of furniture. On the far wall sits a gas fireplace with a stone surround and on either side are recessed built ins for adding all those family photos.
From the living room, there is another open doorway that leads into a beautiful dining room. This space is very charming and boasts a number of awesome features. There is a large tray ceiling as well as several windows along the side wall.
At the back of the dining room you will find one of the two sliding glass doors I mentioned earlier, that could lead out onto an amazing back deck. The dining room has plenty of space and you could easily fill it with a large dining room table and some decorative cabinets or buffet.
Past the dining room sits the kitchen. Here another wall sort of separates the two rooms which is nice. Its always fun to see something other than the overused open concept that most modular have. I’m glad to see they kept the layout true to what colonial style homes traditional are design like.
Okay back to the kitchen… to the left as you walk in from the dining room, you will find a pantry closet. Its not real deep but offers plenty of shelves for a heap of food. Next to that is a small counter and a set of upper cabinets. The other entrance to the kitchen from the foyer is here also.
On the opposite side of the kitchen the counter is laid out in the shape of an “L”, with the sink on the back wall sitting below a window and the stove on the side wall next to the refrigerator. There are plenty of cabinets and drawers throughout the kitchen with all of the cabinets reaching al the way up to the ceiling.
And sitting right in the middle of the kitchen is the island. While this model did not have a counter top on the island, you would have one in your home if you chose this floor plan.
Down the hall from the kitchen you start working your way to the family room, but before you get there you have a few things. On the left hand side it a door. Typically this would be the doorway that leads down into the basement.
If you opted out of a basement foundation this would just be a normal closet. It could also be the laundry room both here or in the basement, since I don’t recall seeing that in this home. To the right of the hall is a linen closet and just beyond that the half bath.
All the way at the end of the hall you finally come to the family room. This is a great big space that runs the width of the home and has a lot of possibilities as far as furniture and use of space. There are windows on all three of the exterior walls and along the back wall sits the second sliding glass door.
Secondary Bedrooms and Bath
Moving up the stairs, which sit just off to the left of the front door in the foyer, you will find all of the bedrooms. At the top of the stairs the initial thing you come to is the first full bathroom. The bathroom has a single vanity, a medicine cabinet built into the mirror and a shower and tub combo.
The first of the secondary bedrooms sits to the right of the stairs as you come up. The second one is at the end of the hall past the mater bedroom. Both of these rooms sit on the front side of the house and each have several windows that let in a lot of light. They are both great size bedrooms measuring in at 14ft 0in X 9ft 5in and 11ft 4in X 10ft 5in respectively.
The master bedroom sit halfway down the hall between the two secondary bedrooms. However, instead of sitting on the front side of the home, this room sits on the back side. It is approximately 15ft 0in X 13ft 0in, making it plenty large enough for a king size bed and maybe even a reading area, gazing out into the back yard.
Along the side wall as you enter the room are two doors. The first leads you into a large walk in closet and the second into the en-suite. The en-suite features a stand alone shower and a double vanity (each with its own medicine cabinet mirror. You will also find a linen closet and around the corner, under a window, the toilet.
So what do you think of colonial style homes and did this one do it for you? Let me know in the comments. It was doubling as their office, so we didn’t get the full affect with furniture in some areas and some features are a little dated. The good news is though you can choose more modern fixtures and finishes if you wanted to. Or maybe that’s just all part of the colonial style charm.
Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by to tour this home with us! We hope you have a fantasic day and look forward to seeing your beautiful face in the next one!
