Cottage Style Homes...
Irresistible Charm!

Cottage style homes, with their steeply pitched, gabled and dormered roofs, towers, turrets, cupolas, prominent chimneys and decorative detailing, present a charming architectural composition that is virtually irresistible. More importantly, they provide a welcoming retreat from the hectic pace of everyday life.

Whether a cozy Victorian cottage by
a  lake . . . . . or an enchanting cot-
tage style tree house in the  woods, they offer the perfect escape  when you need to get away from it all  for awhile.     They also provide a great
place  to  gather  with   family   and
friends to  create  special  memories
that will last a lifetime!

Often replete with bands of windows that frame scenic vistas of  the  sur-
rounding countryside, they are ideally suited for  solitude  and  quiet  con-
templation.  The upper level of the round tower-like room pictured below is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the natural panoramic beauty of the land-
scape beyond.    Its spacious deck area is also ideal for entertaining family and friends.

The rustic charm of the shingled cottage pictured below,  left,  extends  to the stone and shingled fence and gated arbor surrounding it.   Below, right, the painted white entrance pillars and window  boxes  lend  a  more  formal look to this appealing lakeside cottage.

The unusual corner detailing of the country retreat pictured below enhanc-
es the cottage-like look and feel of this charming getaway.   Floral-draped window boxes add even more to the overall charm!

The two shingle style cottages that follow present a study in  contrasts.
At right is a relatively simple  gabled cottage  with  a  shed  roof  dormer
and a roof sheathed in metal.    The more elaborate design  pictured  be-
low incorporates a two  story  tower with a roof  that  blends  seamlessly
into  the  hipped  roof  of  the  main structure,  which  is  punctuated by
both hipped and shed roof dormers.

Pictured at right is a simple shingled guest house with tiny  windows  set beside an historic East  coast  wind-
mill.  In stark contrast is the sprawl-
ing Nantucket cottage with  a  large glazed cupola pictured below.

And once again,  the  stone cottages pictured at right and below present a study in contrasts.   Relatively simple
in  style,  the gabled cottage at right
is,  nevertheless,  beautifully detailed with a brick chimney,  tall  multi-pane windows and an inviting wooden door. The larger one and a  half  story  cot-
tage pictured  below  boasts  a  front facing  gambrel  roof  and  a  massive stone arch that frames the center  of the full width front porch.
