  • Inspired by 19th-century summer cottages along the East Coast, this versatile shingle-style design is suitable as either a year-round residence or a vacation retreat.
  • Serving as outdoor entertainment areas are a wrap-around veranda in front and a screened porch in back. Hardwood floors and nine- and ten-foot ceilings add beauty and volume to the indoor living spaces.
  • The front door opens to a two-story foyer. A wood stove warms the spacious living room. Nearby, the dining room is nestled between two sets of sliding French doors, one to the veranda and the other to the porch. Centrally located, the efficient kitchen features a convenient pass-through to the living room.
  • Double doors open to the first floor master suite with its private bath and access to the porch. The master bath includes a handy pocket door to the utility room. Upstairs, two bedrooms, both with sloped ceilings, share a four-fixture bath. A built-in seat makes the balcony area special.
  • A 2-car detached garage measuring 24' widfe and 22' deep with two 8' doors is included with the plans.
