Searching for a home that’s already built is very different from building one on your own land. While this exciting opportunity is a dream for many, it requires a bit more insight since you have to find land to build on as well as choose the best floor plan for your site. Luckily, Vista Homes specializes in build on your lot homes in Charlotte. Read on if you’re considering building a new home on your own land but are not quite sure how to start.

One of the most exciting parts of any new home search is looking for the right floor plan. There are so many possibilities for how a home could be laid out, plus many selection packages to choose from. As you look at our home floor plans, consider what best fits your needs. Perhaps you have a larger family, or need a multi-generational space, or room to host friends and family from out of town. Vista Homes has a variety of choices, and our floor plans for single family homes have been thoughtfully designed to meet and exceed your needs for a new home. We have a few plans that really shine. Take a look!
The Sequoia is our 6-bedroom floor plan. This generous floor plan reaches over 3,700 square feet of living space. Don’t worry! You won’t get lost inside as the layout is wide open with an easy flow throughout. The main areas on the first floor include a formal dining room, a living room with a beamed ceiling and a fireplace, a kitchen, and a breakfast nook. There’s also a private den adjacent to a full bath that is ideal for a guest suite or home office. Another major highlight of this plan is the kitchen. It’s a chef’s dream with a large island for plenty of seating, a walk-in pantry, a wine fridge, and easy access to the formal dining room or the outdoor living area. The second floor has three bedrooms and is the total package for families with children of various ages. The primary suite includes a massive walk-in closet and a spa-like bathroom with a soaking tub and a spacious shower. The host in you will love the spacious bonus room, which can be used however you see fit. Game room? Kids’ playroom? Movie room? You name it! The third floor is ideal if you have young adults or guests who need a little more privacy and quiet space. There is a bedroom and a full bath, plus a flex space and a multi-purpose room. Create a home gym, a home office, a library… whatever you need. The Sequoia has room for everyone!
The Elm II is a 5 bedroom/3 bathroom floor plan boasting an impressive 2,931 square feet of living space. If you like tons of natural sunlight and feeling connected to the outdoors, you’ll love this home. You’ll have a straight view to the back deck as soon as you walk through the main entrance. The first floor includes a dining area, a living room with a fireplace, and the kitchen. There’s also the private den adjacent to a full bath that is ideal for a guest suite or home office.

Welcomed by a covered front porch, the Laurel opens into a spacious, 2-story 2,845-square-foot home. If you’re a big entertainer, you’ll love the open space throughout the main living area. Start with cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres at the kitchen’s large island with seating that overlooks the open dining room. The kitchen also includes a walk-in pantry and tons of counter space. There’s plenty of natural light in the dining room and living room spaces. There is also a den that offers a quiet workspace and/or a guest bedroom. Upstairs, the Laurel has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The owner’s suite is just far enough away from the others for some privacy, but close enough if one of your children or guests needs you. You’ll have your own large walk-in closet and a full bathroom with twin sinks. The other bedrooms are sizable with their own closets and easy access to the full bathroom. One of them even has space for a sitting area/mini living room – perfect for a multi-gen suite.
If you need a bit more room, our popular Maple II floor plan will be your go-to with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 2,794 square feet of living space. This two-story home has plenty of space for a growing family or visiting guests. The entertainer in you will love the open kitchen with a huge walk-in pantry, a large island with seating, and a light-filled dining room that has direct access to the covered porch. The adjacent living room has a unique beamed ceiling and a stunning fireplace. Just off the front entry hall, there is a den with direct access to the full bath that can also be a 5th bedroom. (Ideal for guests or a grandparent suite!) Whatever you choose. You’ll find the other bedrooms tucked upstairs along with the laundry room. The primary suite has everything you need to get ready in the morning and wind down in the evening. It features an enormous walk-in closet and a double vanity, and a walk-in shower and soaking tub in the bathroom.
The Fir I is ideal for those looking for cozy 4-bedroom floor plans. There’s ample living space in this 2,330-square-foot plan. The Fir I is a great option if you like a wide-open layout. The covered front porch leads seamlessly into the entrance. Once inside, you’ll be greeted by an entry foyer that leads you past the den/study and into the spacious, open kitchen, living room, and dining room. The den offers a quiet workspace, while the open living space is perfect for family and friend get-togethers. In addition to a walk-in pantry, the kitchen has easy access to the drop zone that’s off the garage. The expansive rear patio offers tons of outdoor living space. (Let’s eat outside tonight!) Upstairs, the Fir has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The owner’s suite offers privacy, but is still close to the other rooms. There’s a large walk-in closet and a full bathroom with a stand-alone soaking tub and a walk-in shower. The other bedrooms are sizable with their own closets and easy access to the hall bathroom.

We get complimented often on the quality of our finishes, fixtures, and appliances, which are all standard in Vista homes!”

"I used Vista Homes to purchase my very first home and from beginning to end the process was seamless. I had biweekly calls with Chandler (the best there ever was) where she gave me updates and was super transparent about everything. Every single update was communicated effectively via email or on our calls! I was SO impressed. Never did I feel left out or unsure about what was happening during the building process. Then there is Mariessa... whenever I had a random odd question she always had an answer. Needless to say I had a fantastic experience with my first home and I would highly recommend Vista!"
