Our Center Gable Cottage combines a picturesque exterior with a compact, comfortable plan. Adapted from the Gothic Revival style popular in the mid-19th century, it features peaked gables, board-and-batten siding, and fanciful scroll saw trim.
The house sits on a compact foundation and has a simple but livable plan. It offers 3 bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths in roughly 2,700 square feet of space. The front porch adds approximately 350 square feet.
Downstairs, the semiopen plan includes a roomy master bedroom with adjoining vestibule, bath, and walk-in closet. The dining room provides a focal point for the plan with its double-height ceiling, French doors, and clerestory window placed high in the wall above. It overlooks the skylit sunroom, which can also serve as an informal family room. In the kitchen, a triangular island divides the work area from the breakfast area.
On both floors, centered halls become part of the living space rather than passageways. Working drawings include a double garage, also in the Gothic Revival style. It connects to the house by a covered breezeway.
