Plan Description

The front facade of this classic cape design, with its steeply pitched roof, large central chimney and wide plank front door is reminiscent of designs from the early colonial period. With carefully chosen materials, primitive trim detailing & exterior finish, we've further created its air of antiquity. Although this home has a centuries-old, outward appearance, it is actually quite modern, both in construction and design, with an energy-efficient shell and an open, free-flowing floor plan suitable for informal living. p>The rear of the first floor plan is dominated by a large, eat-in country kitchen that is open to the dining area. Windows, overhead skylights and a French door that leads out to the screened porch flood this area with natural light. The screened porch provides additional warm weather living space and affords access to the spacious open deck across the rear of the house. A well proportioned living room, warmed by a fireplace, is adjacent to the dining area. The first floor master bedroom suite offers ample closet space and a full bath and a rear entry mudroom with a half bath and laundry round out the first floor. A skylight at the head of the stairs on the second floor provides light and ventilation for the loft landing, which includes closet storage and a desk or sitting area. To the left is a full bath and second bedroom and to the right is the larger, third bedroom. The carriage shed is designed for parking two cars and can be constructed as either an attached or detached structure. Its position is often dictated by the constraints of the building site and is usually connected to the home by means of a deck or covered breezeway. Regardless of its exact location, with a steep pitched roof and rustic barn board siding, it provides a perfect compliment to the main house. Along one side, we have added a functional wood shed which creates its saltbox shape and adds interest to the design. The towering cupola plays off the verticality of the cape's chimney and provides the crowning touch. The second floor of the carriage shed can be used as storage or finished to offer an ideal space for a guest apartment, office or studio retreat.
