Cottage Home Classics Collection

A Small Cotswold Cottage in England

Welcome to our Cottage Home Collection!


Opinions about what makes the best size and style of home are as varied as the choices available.  To be sure, attitudes are cyclical and reflect current trends and the economy.  What is considered large for one may be small for the other.  One thing is certain, the trend in popularity for European and American cottage style houses is greater than ever.


All our house styles, be they French Country homes, English Cottage homes, Italian or American, have a variety of sizes from "Cottage", "Manor" and "Estate".  The popularity of the "cottage style" has prompted us to create a section of our collection that focuses on what might be considered a strictly cottage size and style.


This special category will focus on small cottage style houses from 850 to 1,799 square feet.  Another feature of this special collection will feature options that have suggestions that will allow you to "grow" your basic plan in increments to the size that just suits your needs, now or as your needs grow.  Here, we anticipate your potential needs and show you what you can do to get just what you want.


We hope you will enjoy these plans and find one that is just right for your new cottage!



Casa di Campagne (Italian Casa Classics)

Casa di Campagna (1 Bedroom)

At just 2,007 square feet our Casa did Campagna, or, Country House, is one of our largest, "small" cottages.  This surprising cottage looks and feels even larger!


Its rambling Italian facade, familiar tower and other typically Tuscan architectural elemants such as clay tile roof, buff colored, stucco walls and graceful, tall windows echo Tuscan country style.  Inside, vaulted ceilings in the great room and master bedroom add natural light and an airy dimension not often seen with small cottages.


The open floor plan adds another dimension and makes this house perfect for relaxing and entertaining.  All rooms enjoy tremendous views with lots of windows around a sunny, pergola topped veranda. 


Note:  This house also is designed to be able to accomodate a second bedroom addition (see below) or even a basement that allows for an additional one or two bedrooms, office, and playroom or second great room.

The approach to our Casa di Campagna is warm and welcoming with a linked, two car garage wrapping around the entry court.  A columned breezeway allows views through to the side while gentle steps lead to an arched double door with leaded glass windows that allow a view through the house to the veranda.


On entering, a columned hall opens to the vaulted great room with a wall of French doors opening to the Veranda and a large fireplace at the far end.  Arched openings allow circulation to the kitchen and dining areas that become a part of the great room while having enough visual separation to make spaces cozy yet open.


A vaulted and beamed master bedroom suite is like a fine hotel with a luxorious bath with walk-in shower, large closet and his and her's vanities.  The big surprise in the bath is the high, beamed ceiling above a clerestory that floods the bath with natural light.  A screened porch off the dining room adds another element of resort style living. 


The biggest surprise is the Tuscan style tower that is perfect to take advantage of lake, ocean or mountain views as you sip on your morning coffee!

Casa de Campagna (2 Bedroom)

As we mentioned, our one bedroom plan offers the potential to add a second bedroom with no change to the one bedroom plan.  Here we simply replaced the screened porch with a second bedroom and bath that enjoys its private location on the opposite side of the house and even has potential for its own entrance to a terrace, pool, or other outside feature.





Vine Cottage (English Cottage Classics)

Vine Cottage (1 bedroom)

One could almost think he had stumbled upon a real Cotswold cottage when approaching our Vine Cottage!  Casement windows set in buttery-tan stone, gabled dormers that fill the inside with sunlight, rough slate stone pavers lead to the front door and a typical terra cotta chimney pot tops the tall chimney.


Upon entering, your eye is drawn upwards to the high beamed ceiling and the sun streaming in the dormered clerestory.  A large fireplace draws the eye to one end of the great room while an efficient, open kitchen and dining area opens up for easy entertaining and gracious living.


The generous master suite and bath offer privacy and comfort overlooking the terrace and back of the property.  Large casement windows in the bedroom and over the tub allow for abundant natural light and afford great views.


A utility room off the kitchen serves as a mud room/pantry with its entrance  protected from the weather with a handy portico.  A garage could easily link to this area making access for bring in the groceries easy and convenient,

If you need an extra room for a guest or family member, our two bedroom model at 1,323 square feet easily expands the one bedroom model with a great guest suite.  If you prefer, this model would give you that home office you want.  It could double as a guest room!
