Weobley Cottage

Weobley Cottage English Cottage House Plan
Weobley Cottage

ur inspiration for "Weobley Cottage" (pronounced Webley) was actually taken from some of the typical English cottages one might find all over England in a quaint little village, at the base of a small country lane, or amid rolling hills with meadows full of wild flowers, by a mill pond or along a river.  There, life is lived as it was decades ago.  One visitor stated that "if you arrived in the dark, when you woke up in the morning you would think that you had died and gone to heaven."  Perhaps this cottage was built over a hundred years ago as a retreat from city life or was part of a small cluster of houses along a narrow village street. Perhaps it was an Inn. 

 

We have attempted to recreate the country charm of this old cottage in a new version suited for today's lifestyles with 3,461 square feet of space.  Design elements reminiscent of the old English style such as exposed rafter tails, stone construction accented by heavy timbers and infill of brick or stucco echo the charm of another world.  Steeply pitched roof lines and half timbering accented with stucco infill mimic construction techniques of the region over a century ago.

Straight Out Of The Cotswolds!

Upon entering this charming house. one is immediately struck by the quaint study/living room with its angled fireplace, high, beamed ceiling, and boxed bay window to the front.  A series of posts defining the foyer lend additional scale and continue the detailing of the exterior.  Off the foyer, a dining room with boxed bay window and butler's pantry connects to the kitchen.  A large family room with fireplace acts as an extension of the kitchen with its breakfast nook overlooking the porch and garden beyond. A pair of French doors lead directly to a cozy covered porch.  The sizeable master suite with walk-in closet and generous bathroom is just steps away and accessed through a secluded hall. French doors conveniently connect it to the fully covered autumn porch for that early morning cup of coffee while reading the paper.  An adjacent laundry room is the final touch that makes the ground floor totally livable. 

At the center of the house, a central staircase leads to a surprising upstairs.  Three sizeable bedrooms spin off the landing.  Each has a large private bath and generous closet space.  Off the stair landing is a 438-square-foot bonus room over the garage.  This room would be ideal for an office, media room or playroom.

One of our clients generously shared these photos of his construction progress and creative modifications to our base plan.

Here's an idea....This is the Weobley Cottage great room revised by relocating the fireplace and opening up to the study (left), creating a large open living area off the kitchen. Windows to the right overlooking the terrace were replaced with three sets of French doors! Great ideas!
This is a view of the same space looking from the study/office through to the Foyer (right) and great room (left) and through the french doors to the terrace opposite the front entrance.
The front stairs being prepped, painted and stained. Owner selected custom millwork and finishes just makes this house throughout!
A modified kitchen to die for! Look what you can do by moving a few doors and re-orienting the kitchen in the same space. Iy gives you a larger kitchen while maintaining great circulation.
Windows make all the difference. Here you see the bay window in the dining room looking to the front. This is a light filled house!
