Tucked away near a lush neighborhood park, this two-story plan captures the charm of the idyllic surroundings with a cottage aesthetic and a modern touch. The timeless architectural design is set within tree-lined streets and white picket fences, with rich custom details including recessed windows, wood trim, siding, shingles and brick. A thoughtful use of materials and colors enhances a sense of warmth, comfort and coziness, while the strong proportions are anchored by a front porch as a charming first impression.

The interiors are designed to maximize comfort and provide all the amenities of contemporary living, with custom-built quality. The plan delivers flexible use of space, including home offices, lofts, and ample storage, in addition to the four bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Separate living and family rooms, formal dining room spaces, eat-in nooks and sloping ceilings are a nod to traditional living and capture the essence of the surrounding neighborhood.

Abundant natural light fills the rooms and highlights the attention to detail at every turn. An efficient and comfortable accessory dwelling unit (ADU) responds to the state’s housing initiatives with opportunities for flexible living or additional income.

From the Judges
The outside of this home fits the inside perfectly. It feels like part of a whole community. There’s good detailing inside, including a standout shower. And the ADU is cute.
