Cottage Chic: A Custom Designed Cozy Retreat

The classic cottage style home complete with its charming look and warm, comfortable interior continues to be a favorite of those individuals seeking to build a traditional home.


Generally thought of as a small space with rustic character and cozy proportions, today’s cottage combines style with modern design, addressing current demand for things like open floor plans and improved energy efficiency.

Even the exterior finishing touches inspire a calming daydream:  white picket fence or low dry-stack stone wall with an iron gate?  A pea gravel walkway to the front door, welcoming friends and neighbors, or a rocking chair and ice cold lemonade on the front porch?  Pots of wildflowers or a rose trellis defining the elegant entryway?

Inside, the choices are all yours! Well-designed built-in cabinetry to showcase cherished found objects or organize treasured collections?  A vintage inspired claw foot soaking tub or relaxing steam shower complete with teak bench and a tiled shampoo niche?  Hardwood floors or soft plush rugs underfoot?
