West River Cottage Two

The West River Cottage 2 is second in a series of cottage designs intended for the client that is interested in a distinctive smaller home. Traditionally scaled as its predecessor, this plan has considerably more useable square footage. 

Cottage 2 has a covered front entryway. The front door itself has glass to allow natural light into the entry space. To the right of the entry is the Living Rm. In the Living Rm. there is a dedicated fireplace as well as a vaulted bump out towards the front of the house, possibly for a reading chair and built-in book shelves. 

Behind the Living Rm. to the right rear of the house is the Dining Rm. with a sliding glass door to outdoors, possibly a patio area. 

To the left of the Dining Rm. at the rear of the house is the Kitchen. The Kitchen has an island for food prep as well as for seating. There are two mulled windows to allow plenty of natural light into the space. As you move to the left front of the house, there is first a half bath followed by a modest office space. 

Moving on to the second level of the house, to the left, at the staircase landing is a full Bath with a soaking tub, shower, double vanity, enclosed water closet and linen closet. 

Continuing to the left rear is Bedroom # 1, to the right rear, Bedroom # 2 and forward is Bedroom #3. All the bedrooms have plenty of natural light and ventilation. In the hallway adjacent to the open railed staircase is a folding stairway to access the Attic for light storage. 

Well, there you have a brief breakdown of the spaces in the West River Cottage 2. I always aim for having my designs be more than the sum of its parts. I feel that a design is successful when the interior and exterior aspects of the building are well integrated. I think the West River Cottage 2 reaches this aesthetic mark. I hope you agree.
