Simple Modern Cottage Home Plan - The Bayport Cottage A
Unique small house plan with big design ideas!
Our Bayport Cottage offers an open floor plan and surprisingly generous room sizes
for a house under 1800 square feet. And what style - this home has all the charm
of a traditional Cottage House Plan, yet also displays a definite “edge”. It is
a modern interpretation of the American Craftsman architectural style. At Simply
Elegant Home Designs, we don’t want to simply mimic the old houses we love - we want
to transform them into modern livable designs.
Enter the home through it’s generous front porch. The entry way projects just a
bit into the porch. In this way the entry zone does not interfere with the interior
spaces. Once inside the Living, Dining and Kitchen areas are all open to each other,
yet distinctively zoned. The positioning of the garage (well back from the front
of the home) allows natural light to filter the spaces from all directions. This
also provides for a smart mudroom connection with the house at the back corner.
Upstairs the 3 bedrooms (including the master suite) and the shared bath are efficiently
organized around the central hall. The front 2 bedrooms have large windows facing
the front yard with smaller windows on the side walls. The charm provided by the
sloped ceilings remind you of this homes cottage house plan “roots”.
The Bayport Cottage house plan comes with a full basement foundation. The basement
is unfinished but indicates rough in locations for a future bathroom. The plan could
easily be adapted by your local Architect or Builder to accommodate side lookout,
side walkout or other lot configurations.
