Cottage Plans with Porches... A PROFUSION of Porches!
Few cottage plans with porches boast the size and number of roof decks, as well as screened and open porch areas, as the stunning beach cottage featured here. A profusion of open stairways,
and covered porches wrap around the entire structure!
The entrance facade to Island Cottage is pictured below, with a front ele- vation pictured directly
beneath it. The plan shown here, available from Southern Cottages, features an elevated piling foundation made
of 8 x 8 inch treated lumber. Suitable for coastal locations where the floor struc- ture of the living area is
required to be elevated above potential flood conditions, the ground level is used as a two car garage with a
front facing entrance, as shown in the floor plan at bottom. An optional side entrance plan to the garage is
Nearly square in overall configuration, this gable and
cottage plan with porches features walls of windows and French doors all around it that flood the interior with
light and afford spectacular views from within. With its "layering" of architectural elements extending upward
and inward, cul- minating in a cupola-like rooftop observation deck, this 2,058 square foot gem resembles an
elaborate wedding cake design!
Another perspective of the entrance facade is pictured below. Tiny lan- terns perched on stair posts light the
way to the front door.
The main level living area features an open floor plan encompassing 1,369 square feet, with the living room,
dining room and kitchen flowing together. A den/study, bedroom, and two baths also occupy the main level living
ar- ea. The large wraparound porch can be accessed from almost every room on this level. In addition, an
expansive screened porch can be accessed directly from the dining area, as well as from the porch deck on either
end of it.
Occupying the 608 square foot upper level are two more bedrooms, includ- ing the master suite, and two baths.
Each bedroom includes a walk-in clos- et -- two in the master bedroom -- and a French door leading to separate
and spacious roof decks. From the main stair hall, a spiral staircase winds its way up to a rooftop observation
room just over 8 feet by 8 feet in size. Once again, a wall of windows on each side offers spectacular views!
In geographic locations where the floor structure of the living area is not required to be elevated due to
potential flooding problems, another version of this cottage plan with porches is available. Pictured below
is Island Cot- tage without an elevated piling foundation.
The casual and comfortable interior of this striking beach cottage is as captivating as the exterior. Please
