Our Wherwell Cottage Alternate plan is a variation of the original with some subtle changes that may appeal to you.
First of all, you will notice that we reversed the plan. (Some people like it that way!) We've added a two car garage conveniently located off the kitchen, deleted two fireplaces and revised the great room by adding a gabled end to the rear with a soaring vaulted roof. That modification allowed us to replace the bay window with a window wall composed of French doors topped with a large radius, transom window above. This is ideal if you have a great view and want a large, airy room full of sunlight!
The guest room and study were fitted with windows to each side, utilizing space previously taken by fireplaces in each room.
This is a great plan on one floor that has really hit the sweet spot for square footage at only 2,638 heated and cooled SF!
