If you're looking for a home with height and elegance, a three or more story house may be for you. Typically, these floor plans include public living areas on the first floor with plenty of open space and room for entertaining. The second, third (and beyond!) floors include the bedrooms and baths plus, in some cases, an attic to further expand the living space. The extra vertical space allows vaulted ceilings, dramatic entryways and amenities like lofts.
