About this Plan

  • A vaulted foyer runs up the center of this compact 3 bed cottage house plan, leading family and friends directly into a vaulted, richly glassed great room.
  • Out front, slender columns sit atop squared bases clad with brick veneer, bounding the leading edge of a wide covered porch. Corbels accent the apexes of three front-facing gables that flow together in a neat line on the right. Each gable reaches its apex at a different level, then angles off to create separate yet parallel roof lines that extend to the left.
  • Windows flank the gas fireplace that graces the rear of the great room, while a dining area fills the right side. Wide sliding glass doors there provide easy access to a covered patio, which could be screened if desired, for pest-free outdoor dining. The dining area is also open to the kitchen.
  • A peninsular counter marks the dining room/kitchen boundary. Its raised eating/conversation bar is handy for serving up quick meals and snacks. In addition, parents can easily supervise homework done here while they cook dinner. The walk-in pantry and pass-through utility room are both exceptionally spacious for a home this size. The kitchen-garage link assures that the process of unloading groceries will always be easy, comfortable and safe.
  • Sleeping quarters and bathrooms fill the entire left side. The owners' suite boasts a deep walk-in closet plus a bathroom with a spa tub and dual vanity. The bathroom and closet create a sound buffer between the adult sleeping area and secondary bedrooms.
