Finished! A Classic Cottage

Last spring, we shared THIS POST about a new cottage we had in the works for an infill lot near downtown Greenville, South Carolina. Well, the finishing touches have been put on and it is now ready for it's new owners.
Here are a few photos:

The house has great curb appeal. The exposed rafter tails, "swoopy" roofline, and mix of materials are cues taken from the neighborhood the house is in.

The house sits on a corner lot, with a two car garage on the lower level, so it had to have two "fronts"

The foyer features a beautiful arch top mahogany front door, and an open rail staircase with a classic wooden newel post.
From the landing of the stair, a view of the fireplace beyond and more of the wrought iron railing above.
The Great room is light-filled, with traditional window stools, a fireplace surrounded by travertine, and warm oak hardwoods.

The bright kitchen has painted and glazed cabinetry, a tumbled travertine backsplash, and granite countertops.

One side of the kitchen features a handy built in desk, perfect for homework or paying the family bills.

The bright and fresh master bath has a contemporary flavor, with 12 x 24 striated tiles, a rectangular soaking tub, and clean lined glass shower.

The master bedroom is bright and spacious.
The hardwood floors extended into the powder room, where a colorful piece of art gives a punch of character.

The upper floor's bathroom has carerra marble countertops and a classic black and white tile, a feature that is found in many of the vintage homes in the surrounding neighborhood.
We hope you've enjoyed the tour of this traditional style cottage. Be sure to join us on Facebook to see more pictures and plans of the homes we design!
