About This Plan

This beautiful Cottage plan features great outdoor space, a lovely exterior and an open floor plan. The exterior of the home is highlighted with cedar shakes, warm woods, beautiful window views and a covered porch as well as a screened porch. The interior of the home offers approximately 1,559 square feet of living space on two floors with an open floor plan, three bedrooms and two baths. Perfectly designed for a narrow lot, the home’s width is 45’ while the depth is 53’plus and there is a foundation choice of either a slab, crawl or basement; wonderful options and the basement is ideal for additional living space, an in-law or teen-age suite or recreation space for family and close friends. The front entrance immediately opens onto the living spaces where there is a dining room, kitchen and great room. The great room is located at the rear of the home for maximum viewing potential onto a lakefront or mountain property lot and features a warming fireplace, a rear window wall and access onto the screened porch and subsequent covered porch. This plethora of outdoor space is heavily influenced by its “Cottage” status and the potential for all those heavenly views. Back inside, the home features a dining space and an eat-in kitchen bar with additional seating arrangements. This combination space is arranged to provide maximum appeal, work and prep space as well as dining space for family and special occasion meals. The grand kitchen also contains good counter and cabinet space as well, optional pantry space and access onto the outdoor space making dining al fresco easy and enjoyable.

Two identical sized bedrooms are located on the main floor; each is highlighted with window views and great closet space. There is a linen closet located in the small hallway along with space for a stackable washer and dryer. The shared hall bath features double sinks, a toilet area, a glass enclosed shower and a whirlpool tub. The second floor of the home could be utilized as the master suite or space for overnight guests or children. There is a loft that could function as a sitting room for the suite or a sleeping loft for guests. A traditional enclosed bedroom with closet space and window views is also located on the floor and there is a full bath with toilet area, vanity space, tub/shower combination and a hall linen closet as well. This Cottage home features a lovely exterior, great outdoor space and a versatile floor plan.
