Cottage Style Houses...
Building the Present from Our Past!

The cottage style houses featured here range from charming 1920s period revival  designs  --  one of which is part of a fabulous "Old World" estate owned until recently by actor Nicolas Cage . . . . . to enchanting present
day examples that rival the inherent charm, ambiance and Storybook Style of their predecessors!

Varying,  steeply  pitched  roof  lines penetrated by a profusion of dormers and chimneys -- popular with period revival styles of the 1920s and '30s -- are making an appearance again.   Natural building materials such as stone, brick and wood shingles are also making  a  comeback,  as  is  high  quality craftsmanship during the construction process. Adding further to the charm and  authentic  look  of  new cottage style houses are multi-pane windows with wooden shutters  --  typically used in earlier cottage style homes,  as well.

The enchanting 1920s European-inspired cottage style home pictured  be-
low is located in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.  It features a cross-gable roof plan with an unusual front facing dual gable design, wherein one of the "gables" looks more like a through-the-cornice dormer, such as the one pictured on the far left with a contrasting hip roof.

Clad with a variety of materals including stone, stucco and wood, this cot-
tage style house also features roof and wall  lines  that  sweep  downward and outward on each end of the home.  Small multi-pane windows -- some with  wooden  shutters  --  and a Tudor-Gothic entry door add to the cot-
tage charm and appeal of this Storybook Style design.

More English country manor than cottage  --  due to its size  --  the 1930s stone design that follows is, nevertheless, endowed with numerous cottage style characteristics.    Located outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, this lovely  Tudor Revival  home features numerous gables and dormers,  as well as a large chimney that extends upward along the  outer  wall  of  the front  facade  --  a  common architectural design element of English period revival styles in North America at that time.

Pictured at right is the stone entrance pavilion to "Gray Craig,"  a magnificent 1924 estate in Middletown,  Rhode  Is-
land,  USA.    Though the large estate was partially subdivided  in  2004,  the grand   English   manor   home  around which  the  estate  was  originally cre-
ated was owned by actor Nicolas Cage from 2007 to 2011.




The charming cottage style house that follows was initially part of the Gray Craig estate.     A blend of English and French styles, it features a hip roof with a bevy of through-the-cornice dormers -- some of which have arched tops.     Multi-pane  windows,  as well as French Provincial shutters on the lower level, add to the quaint look and feel of this delightful structure!

Unlike the design pictured above,  the classic French-inspired Atlanta area home that follows is rather formal in appearance.    Though it's highly sym-
metrical facade and formality are not typical of cottage style architecture, I've included it here because it simply has a "cottage look and feel" to it.

Designed by James Means (1904-1979),  this striking home was built in the 1930s.   Despite a formal garden in the foreground, "Country French" shut-
ters  and  window  boxes  --  in conjunction with an ivy-draped facade  --  contribute to the cottage look and feel of this amazing abode!

The enchanting cottage style house pictured below is located in the  pres-
tigious Hyde Park area of Cincinnati,  Ohio.     Asymmetrical in design,  this picturesque confection blends Tudor and Gothic Revival styles.  It features a hip roof with two front facing gables  --  one of which includes a distinc-
tive diamond-paned oriel window and sweeping roof line. Stone and stucco clad  the  front  facade of this storybook home, as well as a massive stone chimney.

The remaining cottage style houses featured here are of relatively  recent origin.      Pictured below is a cozy country stone cottage by Simeral Con-
struction, based in Lititz, Pennsylvania, USA.      Steeply pitched roof lines
and shuttered, multi-pane windows add to the timeless charm of this love-
ly rural Pennsylvania farmhouse design.

The "Stone Bedford Village Cottage" that follows was designed by Brooks & Falotico Architects, based in New Canaan, Connecticut, USA.   The facade of  this picturesque cottage features a one and a half story gable roof with a pair of one story, forward projecting "pavilions" crowned with hip roofs. A large multi-pane bay window adorns the front of each pavilion,  while a trio of gabled dormers with arch topped windows project from  the  upper  level roof.  A graceful arch also covers the slightly projecting front entrance just beneath the upper level dormers.

The striking English Cotswold-inspired design  pictured  at right and below is also  by  Brooks & Falotico Architects. Stone and wood shingles clad the ex-
terior of the cottage, which  is  punc-
tuated by rows of tall multi-pane win-
dows  and  French  doors  flanked  by shutters on the first level.

On  the  upper  story,  rows  of  multi-
pane double-hung windows  peer  out from  under raised roof eaves with ex-
posed rafter tails. Piercing the rooftop is a series of stone chimneys crowned with decorative clay chimney pots.

Though relatively large in size, the beautiful English-inspired stone cottage style house that follows has many of the characteristics  of a  "true"  cot-
tage,  including a profusion of dormers,  small casement windows with mul-
tiple panes, and oversize chimneys.     Built in the early 20th century,  the home recently underwent a complete restoration by architect Sean O'Kane of Ridgefield, Connecticut, USA.

In  addition  to  restoration  work,  Sean O'Kane also designs new cottage style houses.   Pictured below is a charming guest cottage he designed in conjunction with a large English style country house overlooking  Long  Is-
land Sound.
