Stretching across the front of this traditional raised cottage, a shady porch with flaring eaves offers a cool retreat. Its Doric columns and simple wood balustrade add classic detailing and graciously welcome guests.
Designed by Frederick Spitzmiller and Robert Norris of Atlanta, working drawings include details for a basement foundation. The rear porch can be enclosed to give an additional 110 square feet. The simple floor plan allows plenty of comfort, privacy, and flexibility. The family room, with a vaulted ceiling, forms the heart of the downstairs plan. A skylit porch tucked between the family and breakfast rooms provides a sitting area. Nine-foot ceilings, wide cased openings, and long, breeze-catching windows give a spacious feeling to the downstairs living areas, while sloping ceilings add character and coziness to the upstairs.
