Charm and a Historic Flair Capture the English Cottage Style

Historically, an English cottage included steep rooflines, a large, prominent chimney and a thatched roof. Yet some of the features of these historic plans do not mesh well with modern living. Donald A. Gardner Architects has created a number of English cottage home plans that merge these charming features and overall architectural style with the modern finishes and comfortable design elements common to today's newly built homes. Our modern English cottage house plans include lower maintenance exteriors and open floor plans to meet the needs of today's homeowners. Although English cottage house plans may imply a smaller square footage -- with images of a cozy woodland cottage coming to mind -- our collection of home plans has English cottage style in a broad range of sizes. With Donald A. Gardner Architects, you will find English cottage house plans feature exteriors with a mixture of stone, stucco and cedar shingles, along with some steep roof lines and a close attention to detail. The interiors of these house plans feature functional spaces for modern living whether on one level or two. The Newcastle is a very popular home plan that has several similar versions. These plans are slightly over 2,500 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. If you are looking for something with a bit more space, consider The Mahoney floor plan that is more than 2,700 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
