A Tudor Flavored Cottage

Here's a Tudor flavored cottage style house clad in stone and brick, with half-timber gable accents and diamond paned windows. While the exterior recalls another era, the interior is updated to reflect how we live today.

A small foyer is flanked by a library with built in bookshelves and the great room. The great room ceiling is vaulted with wooden beams and a cast stone fireplace. While the kitchen and dining room are open to the great room, the different ceiling treatments in each room allow each of them to have it’s own identity. The dining room is anchored by built in china cabinets. A small screened porch opens off of the spaces, and the kitchen opens to the rear yard. (Which I envision as being a walled courtyard with a small pool).
Connecting back to the garage are a hallway lined with built ins, stairs to the second level, and laundry and powder rooms. The remainder of the first floor is home to the master suite–a comfortably sized bedroom with vaulted ceiling, a pair of walk in closets, and a bathroom with walk in multi-head shower. The bedroom accesses a private patio with an outdoor shower.

Upstairs, there is a flexible bonus space. It could be a playroom for the kids, a casual room for watching television, or a home office. Over the garage, a small but functional guest suite, and on the other end of the bonus room, another bedroom and bath. The remainder of the second floor is given over for attic storage or future expansion, bringing the whole house to a comfortable 2700 square feet.
