  • This duplex comes with all the charm, and most of the privacy, of a country cottage. Garage walls are the only point of contact between the units, and even the covered patios are completely secluded. The two-story units are mirror images of each other.
  • Slender posts set on wood-framed bases highlight and support an entry porch capped by a low profile gable. Wooden siding covers a half wall that creates another secluded area in the porch section extending from the door to the outer post. It's easy to imagine sipping lemonade here while lazing away a summer afternoon relaxing on wicker furniture or a wooden porch swing.
  • Inside, a handy coat closet hides in an alcove hidden behind the front door. The living and dining areas are all of a piece, and open to the kitchen across a raised eating bar. Light washes into the living areas through wide multipaned windows on the right. More beams in through a smaller window over the sink. Kitchen counters and cabinets line two walls, plus the peninsular counter/eating bar. A combination utility room and powder room is at the rear, along with access to the covered patio.
  • The patio makes a cozy spot for outdoor dining when the weather is warm. Walled on two sides, it provides some protection from the wind, and could easily be screened, if flying insects are a problem in the area.
  • Two bedrooms and a full bathroom with linen storage are upstairs in each of the units. Both bedrooms are expanded by rectangular window bays, which could easily be built as cozy window seats with storage beneath. The rear bedroom is slightly larger, as is its closet.
