The Coastal Cottage looks for design inspiration to both Seabright Farm’s proximity to the ocean and to its rural heritage. The hip roof, high windows and square lines of the front porch embrace the classic forms of early farm houses. The main floor is a single spacious open area, with windows all around to pull in ocean breezes and sunlight. Both upstairs bedrooms share a large bathroom, complete with a soaker tub that enjoys panoramic views. The stone fireplace and its prominent chimney creates a visual centre point for this design both inside and out. The Coastal cottage can be complemented further with an outdoor gas or wood-burning fireplace in an attached breezeway. The rear of the breezeway can be enclosed to create even more intimate space, while attaching an optional bunkie would add a master bedroom retreat, an office or a studio. As with all of our cottage plans, enclosing a garden area with split rail fencing will encourage the “green thumbs” in the family.
