Crisp, Contemporary New England Cottage
The owners took down their existing home of 25 years in order to fully realize their dream home. The new house was designed to have a “cottage-like” feel with smaller sense of scale and ornamental brackets and trim. To maximize the property lot, the driveway was diverted from a central entry location to the side of the house. A new side entry by the carport was designed to help the house meet the drive. To keep the house smaller, the second floor was designed to appear as large dormers, located above the core of the house.
