Careful positioning of the small cottage within its wooded waterfront lot allows it to take full advantage of the site’s natural features including coastal views, excellent solar orientation and natural ventilation. The cottage connects with the outdoors through an abundance of windows and a screen porch. The cottage’s simple layout and symmetry were inspired by the pattern-book homes of the 1920s. This modest vacation home lives large with an open floor plan, two-story living room and three upper-level bedrooms.
