Chimney Rock Bungalow

Chimney Rock Bungalow

ince the turn of the twentieth century, one of the most popular housing styles in American architectural history has been the Arts and Crafts style Bungalow.  These modest dwellings incorporated structural and decorative materials to create an architectural style that America could call its own. 


Bungalow is usually defined as "a low house having only one story, or, in some cases, upper rooms set in the roof, typically with dormer windows."  Another defines a bungalow as "a usually one storied house with a low-pitched roof"  Our favorite describes a Bungalow as "a house that looks as if it had been built for less money than it actually cost."  Regardless of which definition of Bungalow you prefer, the term "small cottage" perfectly describes our Chimney Rock Cottage.

Typical Arts and Crafts Bungalow design elements make the Chimney Rock Cottage so appealing.  Extended eaves, exposed rafter tails, rugged shingle siding, a heavy stone chimney with clay chimney pots, wooden brackets and many other details make this house an Arts and Crafts gem.  


Designed for a site that has more width than depth, and steep terrain, this 2,184 square foot house offers surprising space and functionality.  A high, vaulted ceiling over the entry foyer brings in light through a clerestory above the front door and opens to a vaulted great room with fireplace with sizable kitchen and dining area beyond.  All open directly to a terrace or deck with an autumn fireplace to keep warm on chilly days.  The master suite with its own corner fireplace is just off the great room with private access to the terrace.  Its large bath and walk-in closet make the master suite perfect for relaxing.


A stair is shown for a possible lower level or basement if desired.
