The Oakleaf is a one-level cottage that appeals with its simplicity and Southern charm. William H. Phillips, Jr., of Dauphin Island, Alabama, designed this house on a crawlspace foundation with a wood siding exterior and 9-foot ceilings. Inside, the foyer leads to the spacious family room. Two sets of doors open to a wide deck that extends the full width of the house. The dining room and master bedroom also open onto this functional outdoor space.
