Luxury has many meaning, depending on what you’re looking for. As far as houses are concerned, it could mean a luxurious interior – extravagant and ornate – or a subdued and subtle vibe. The brand name is not the only one that matters, even though it allows designers to create sumptuous palaces and comfy cottages for all budgets.
Details like design and material quality can also make the difference. And while it’s not all about the size, a luxury home can often rely on spaciousness for its classy look. Amenities are not to be ignored, as well as level of detail that goes above and beyond.
You can find luxury in designs of any scale, from majestic estates to cozy apartments. Browsing thorough pictures of big and rich houses all day can be inspiring. It makes you wonder about how it would be to own one, and not just dream of the luxury home plans. If you want to one day own a house with stunning architecture and incredible interior design, you’ve come to the right place. You will probably be inspired by the luxurious architectural designs we have featured in this article.
1. Aspen Creek by Archival Designs
A cozy study with built-ins flanks an incredibly elegant foyer on one side. On the other, there’s a guest bedroom, complete with walk-in closet and full bath. Two spacious family bedrooms with direct bath access are next to the one- and two-car garages. A luxury game room at the back of the house is just steps away from a large patio that can be equipped for outdoor cooking.
In the middle of the house are a living room and a kitchen separated only by a classy breakfast bar. The family area is heated by two corner fireplaces, while the multiple large windows keep the rooms well sunlit. And who wouldn’t want to look over at the gorgeous views of the outdoor cooking area and lounge?
Located on the left side of the house, the fancy master suite features an elegant bath with his and hers vanities, corner garden tub separate shower, and spacious wardrobe area. A necessary utility room is the bow on this luxury floor plan.
2. Bainbridge by Drummond House Plans
This uncommonly elegant house comes with a lot of noteworthy features. We could refer to the two-car garage which harmonizes perfectly with the rest of the house, or to the amazing living room on the opposite façade that’s open for your own decoration. Or we could talk about the two rear terraces – you can access one of them directly from the master bedroom. Any and all of the above make this model an excellent interior design.
The foyer surprises with vastness, opening over two stories. The living room is flanked by a solarium of very interesting dimensions, while the cozy dining room shares a see-thru fireplace with the family room. The spacious model includes a top-notch kitchen with plenty of cabinet space. The office space that also comes with a full bath is also worth mentioning, as well as the useful laundry room that completes this level.
3. Tres Le Fleur by Archival Designs
The “Tres Le Fleur” ranch plan is a striking combination of a cozy cottage and the softness of a country home. The amazing curb appeal is the first that meets the eye, but then the swooping roofs, adorned with elegant shutters are equally breathtaking. The wide open floor plan of this luxury home design is the answer for any homebuyer looking for an affordable yet spacious home.
Walking under the craftsman pillars, you approach a wide front porch designed in a country style. Inside, the open layout lies at the heart of the impressive Tres Le Fleur, allowing you to see through the house and out at the covered porch. It’s a one-of-a-kind style that adds on a unique twist. The gallery also draws your attention as it introduces the large gourmet kitchen.

6. Stone Pond by Archival Designs
Surrounding a clear body of water, the Stone Pond house is a welcoming sight to behold. The lake is concealed from beyond the drive, but when the car comes in, it offers the visitor a vantage point. From under its brilliant Porte Cochere, you begin to see twigs of soft blue through the trees of this beautiful home plan.
Styled as a European estate, the Stone Pond is artfully situated across a dream lake property. It’s a complete display of glorious arches, exquisite ceiling treatments, and tall columns. Once you enter the foyer, the vastness of space surprises you, as well as the dazzling staircase. Gilded columns welcome you on the right, and walking under them takes you to an eloquent two-story dining room.
To the left, there is a huge foyer surrounded by an intimate library; the two share a warming fireplace. Here is the master suite, as well, which is an oasis unto itself. The tall room is adorned with trey ceilings, making it an ideal getaway with plenty of amenities.
