This delightfully charming, country style expandable cottage was designed to serve either as a vacation home or starter home. Whether set on a lakeside lot, mountain slope, or suburban lot, this is a design that maximizes liveability within its modest footprint. Two bedrooms, including a private master, are split on either side of the dramatic central living and entertaining space. Broad covered porches front and rear expand the liveability. Two additional bedrooms and a third full bath can be finished on the second floor to start, or whenever needed in the future. A garage is readily attached alongside the laundry room. For a 3 bedroom version with a garage see plan no. 3886 or 4175.
