The striking two story Craftsman Style cottage pictured above and in the three images that follow is from Architectural House Plans. Designed by Brian Hanlen of Brooks Design/Build, it is ideal for a narrow lot. It features clapboard with shingled gable ends and a host of wood trim.
A large front porch with a hip roof is supported by two wooden pillars resting on pedestals which are also crafted from wood. A soaring chimney with stone accents extends up the side of an exterior wall and pierces the roof line. At the rear, a large deck or patio area is tucked in between the house and an attached two car garage.
The delightful interior encompasses 2,158 square feet of living area on two levels and includes three bedrooms and two and a half baths. The basement area contains an additional 817 square feet that can be finished off to house a fourth bedroom, full bath, a family room and a wine cellar.
