The picturesque mountain cottage or cabin design that follows features a romantic stone and shingle exterior with steeply pitched,  i.e., pointed ga-
bles, and a large stone chimney.  A stock plan from Hendricks Architecture in Sandpoint, Idaho, it encompasses only 835 square feet.    However,  its
airy floor plan and soaring ceilings with open beams and architectural trus-
ses make it seem larger Two optional loft areas can be built to gain an ad-
ditional 137-159 square feet.    Its charming design is derived from several style variations and, according to the architect, "looks more like storybook cottage meets hobbit house meets Swiss chalet."

The  lovely  Country French farm house design pictured below comes from New South Classics in Greenville,  South Carolina.     Called La Ferme,  its picturesque,  asymmetrical facade with varying roof lines and exposed raf-
ter tails is beautifully detailed.     Primarily clad with limestone and stucco,
the exterior also features half- timbering with brick infill in a handsome her-
ringbone pattern.  Adding charm to the windows with wooden shutters are window boxes filled with flowers.  And capping off the striking chimney de-
sign is a pair of terracotta chimney pots.

Inside, the 2,504 square foot floor plan is no less impressive. It features an open plan with high beamed ceilings and fireplaces in both  the  study  and the family room.    Away from the public spaces,  three bedrooms,  two full baths and a laundry room occupy the other end of the cottage off  a  cen-
tral hall.

The  charming  set  of English Tudor Revival storybook cottage house plans that  follow  was designed by Mitchell Ginn for Southern Living House Plans. Similar in design to the period revival styles popular in North America during the  1920s  and  1930s, this design features a picturesque arrangement of contrasting building materials on the exterior, including stone,  brick,  stuc-
co, and wood half-timbering.    Lovely multi-pane mullioned windows pierce the facade, while an elegant porte-cochere graces the side.

Called Honeymoon Cottage,  its charming old world exterior masks an inte-
rior floor plan designed for contemporary living.     Open and airy,  the two level, 1,999 square foot interior naturally flows from one area  to  another. Just  inside  the  front  entry is a spacious living room with a fireplace and coffered ceiling.     Opening  into  the living room is an eating area off the kitchen.    At the rear is a porch with another fireplace and a beamed and vaulted ceiling.    The expansive master bedroom suite -- also on the main level  --  features  a  spacious master bathroom with dual sinks, a shower, and a Whirlpool bath.  For the sake of convenience, the large walk-in clos-
et can also be accessed from the adjacent laundry room.

The 2,656 square foot interior boasts an amazing total of five fireplaces!  A spacious great room and dining room with high vaulted ceilings flow togeth-
er to create a massive open interior space. Also boasting a soaring vaulted ceiling is the master bedroom suite.      Walls of windows along the rear fa-
cade, interrupted only by sets of French doors leading to a large stone ter-
race,  flood the interior with natural light and afford expansive views of the beautiful terrace and beyond.

And finally,  the enchanting "cottage castle" that follows evokes images of knights in shining armor.    A stepped design with a romantic circular tower, Lostroh Castle ascends three stories  --  beginning  with  a partially below grade lower level that includes a guest room/den,  full bath,  laundry room, and a one car garage. It also features a roof top deck from which to enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding countryside!

At 1,600 square feet in size, it gives the illusion of a much larger structure. From the moment you enter the front door,  you step into a dramatic great room that opens to a kitchen, bar and dining area at the rear.  Surrounding the great room are rows of tall windows and French doors that  lead  to  a balcony on one side, and a patio or deck on the other side.     A cozy fire-
place also graces the main level of this storybook cottage house plan.

The tower encloses an elegant circular staircase that leads  to  the  upper level. At the top of the stairs is an intimate loft area overlooking the great room  below.      Straight ahead is the spacious master bedroom suite that opens onto a private outdoor balcony. Inside the suite is another cozy fire-
place and a large walk-in closet.
