Stylish, Practical Cottage Home Plan
Cottage can mean different things to different people. Some people view cottages as small homes that offer a cozy retreat. Don Gardner’s cottage homes offer lots of flexibility and charm, with the modern amenities you love plus the cottage styling you’re looking for. The Lucerne is one of the outstanding cottage home plans by Don Gardner. This small cottage home plan is stylish and practical, with its European-inspired exterior and modern layout. Stone, stucco, and clipped gables outside give it a cottage feel, while tray and coffered ceilings and abundant windows open up the interior. This one-story home includes three bedrooms, 2 spacious baths, and 1,828 square feet arranged for a family-efficient traffic flow, with living areas perfect for entertaining.
The great room is topped with a coffered ceiling and enjoys a cozy fireplace flanked with built-in cabinetry. French doors lead to an oversized screen porch with skylights to bring in extra light and views. Patio space expands outdoor living and is the perfect space to add a pool or spa. The single dining space lies just around the corner from the great room and has large windows for an open feel. Open to the kitchen, the dining room is perfect for casual meals and breakfast, while the stunning tray ceiling sets the stage for more formal gatherings.
Get the Dream Kitchen You’ve Always Wanted
The island kitchen has a view to both the great room and dining room, and has plenty of counter space and a nearby walk-in pantry. A small e-space is the perfect place to look up recipes. Located just off the garage entrance, it’s easy to bring in groceries and put everything in its place.
Luxurious Bedrooms & Lots of Storage
The master bedroom features a curved wall of windows, walk-in closet, and an oversized shower in the master bath. The secondary bedrooms sit across the home for privacy, and share a large bathroom with twin vanities and private privy.
Storage abounds with linen closets for each bathroom, a large utility room, and additional storage in the garage. Stairs lead to a flexible bonus room, perfect for a home office, rec room, or any other use the homeowner might imagine, while attic storage is easily accessible.
