Designed especially for a hillside or mountainside location, this cozy cottage is ideal for a mountain retreat. The interior is bright and airy with lots of rear and side oriented glass and a soaring living room ceiling with dormer windows open to the living room. The living space has direct access to a large covered rear porch for sitting and taking in the views. The kitchen is compact but it is fully appointed, conveniently located and so very functional. The utility closet and half bath are also well positioned for convenience. The master suite has a large glass wall for open views and plenty of light. The master bath is full sized and contains a unique bath appliance garage plus there is a huge walk-in closet too. The upstairs balcony bedroom is ideal for a kids space and it has its own bath and walk-in closet. The balcony can easily be converted to a wall if privacy is preferred over openness. A door at the top of the stairs leads to attic space that could be used for future space or an additional bed room. The optional finished basement (included with the plans) creates a totally new living space fully appointed with its very own living room, bed room, kitchen, dining and bath. The optional basement can be used as a second master, guest quarters or even a rental unit. It even features its own private deck and outside access. If this cozy cottage is going to be used as a seasonal retreat, the optional finished basement can be rented to generate income to cover or offset the cost of ownership. So many possibilities packaged into such a tiny footprint.
