The Derbyshire

The Derbyshire  has all the elements that make the English cottage a classic .  This plan conveys the feeling of a country cottage with its typically English construction materials, and design. We have designed several versions of The Derbyshire. Each has the look of a cozy cottage with the benefits of a large floor plan and unique characteristics that lend to different sites and owner preferences be it a flat site, sloped site, or even the need for a detached garage or out-building to serve as a garage or work area. Some are reversed or flipped, to show how subtle variations can make a big difference.


In each, we have attempted to recreate the country charm of an English cottage in a new version suited for today's lifestyles.  Design elements reminiscent of English country design 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 generous overhangs mimic construction techniques of the region years ago.


This functional, two story floor plan offers a generous 3,260 square feet of space and conveniences of an open floor plan with character.  The centrally located stair off the entry foyer gracefully leads to the second floor with an overlook from the study above.  A generous master bedroom suite on the ground floor offers a sunny sitting area overlooking the garden and has direct access to the covered autumn porch with exterior fireplace...the perfect spot for early morning coffee with the newspaper!  The double vanity, private toilet, tub and large shower provide an added level of luxury to the master suite.  A large closet allow for easy access and wardrobe storage opening directly to the bedroom. Just outside the master bedroom, a study or office can serve as a master bedroom extension.


A large great room with fireplace and high beamed ceiling adjoins the dining room and a generous kitchen.  The two car garage with storage is conveniently located past the powder room and laundry area toward the front of the house.  Locating the garage to the front creates a cozy, private area to greet guests. 


The second floor features an open loft space that can serve as a study or office. It overlooks the great room and stair with a balcony on two sides.


Behind the loft area, a door leads to two generous bedrooms and a shared bath. Each bedroom has large dormers that create more space for relaxing, working or play. The rooms overlook the front and back of the house and have plenty of light. The 9' ceilings lead down to a 5'-9" knee wall which creates character while offering plenty of head room.





You may want an extra garage, place for equipment storage or work shop. Or you may want to use the garage space atteached to the house for more living area. We have the perfect solution........ Our Derbyshire free standing garage with 1,664 square feet of space (ground floor), matches our Derbyshire collection of house plans and will fit right in. We can connect it to the house with a link or you may prefer to have it as a stand alone for more of a "compound' look.
