The Classic Cottage gracefully evokes all the charm and mystery of a storybook-inspired home, designed to intrigue, captivate and pull readers into its whimsical tale. Flexible spaces offer plot twists throughout, including bedrooms that can double as formal dining spaces, sitting rooms or offices. P.L. Lyons Architectural Builders has created a truly functional floor plan with all the extra details, beautifully describing a home that’s organized, carefree and lives happily ever after.

The all-brick exterior is highlighted with four decorative white columns and intricate brick accents that tie the contrasting red and white colors together. A full front porch with a white railing is topped with a standing seam metal roof, creatively designed to highlight a classic cottage-style front door with a transom and brickwork above. Once inside, the charming plot continues into a beautiful living room that features P.L. Lyons Architectural Builders’ signature hip vaulted ceiling and custom trim, along with impressive chandeliers. Pocket doors introduce a guest bedroom that can easily serve as an extension of the living room, an office or sitting area with access to a private hallway, bath and closet. Reclaimed hardwood flows throughout the first floor.

The kitchen is an inviting exploration, with floor-to-ceiling custom cabinets, built-in bookcases, open shelving and a beautiful island with decorative posts. A white porcelain farmhouse sink complements the modern, upgraded GE Monogram appliance package, featuring a 42-inch range and similarly sized refrigerator. A professionally outfitted walk-in pantry will keep the family chef organized. The designated dining room walks out to the covered side porch and attached grill deck, inviting Mother Nature to join the dinnertime conversation. A pocket office is strategically tucked within the rear entry, offering an ideal place to charge electronics and keep homeowners on task. The gorgeous master suite features organized his-and-hers closets and another hip-vaulted ceiling treatment, and a relaxing master bath.

The lower level of Classic Cottage includes a spacious entertainment area, featuring a projector, large flat screen TV and surround sound. In addition, a wet bar and guest suite and bath are showcased, making it convenient to entertain and host overnight guests. An insulated 2.5-car garage features an 18-foot wide door. Equipped with geothermal heating and air and a premium green insulation package, the home is constructed to save its owners money on energy costs. With plenty of attention to detail, creatively designed spaces and a nostalgic appreciation for classic architecture, this home beautifully translates the theme of Classic Cottage’s quest to offer a perfect ending to every day.
