The Manor House

Manor House English Country Cottage House Plan
The Manor House (Click to Enlarge)


ur English Manor House evokes the style of a larger home that would belong to the Lord of the Manor.  With its somewhat formal exterior and larger scale it could be seen presiding over the cottages scattered on the hills below.  Combinations of stone, brick and half-timbering give this house the appeal that makes English homes so appealing.  The different textural elements and roof configurations give the impression that it has been added onto for generations.  Tall chimneys, steeply pitched roofs, and leaded glass windows reflect the ageless English tradition of residential design.


The floor plan is one of our most popular.  So popular, in fact, that we have been asked to adapt it to several English styles.  We have made some interior modifications to slightly increase the size of some rooms and tighten the footprint by pulling the garage up tighter to the house for more restrictive lots that have less depth from front to back.  This plan is 57 feet deep (including steps).  A lot of house for a shallow lot!


The 4,099 square foot floor plan reflects the formality of the exterior with a dramatic central hall and staircase.  The formal living room with fireplace is opposite the dining room across the hall providing an atmosphere and circulation that facilitates entertaining.


The family room is a generous 12'-4"x17'-8" and it features a second fireplace and vaulted ceiling.  With its garden view to the back, covered porch and patio it is an extension of the kitchen so the family may enjoy a casual space that is functional and open.  Opening to the family room, the kitchen has been expanded to 12'-4"x17'-8" with added counter space and more room for a free standing breakfast table between.  A  food pantry and butler's pantry between the dining room and kitchen provide much desired storage and food prep space.  A convenient laundry room is just off the kitchen adjacent to the three car garage.


The ground floor master bedroom with fireplace has been expanded to 17'x21' with a high beamed ceiling and has dedicated access to the covered porch and is easily accessible from all living areas.   An enlarged master bath and walk-in closet make this wing even more enjoyable. 


At the top of the stairs, one is greeted by an overlook to the entry foyer below.  Three bedrooms have exterior French doors opening to exterior balconies.  Each with private bath, provides adequate space for family and guests.  Two bedrooms offer the option of connecting when desired.  A 776 square foot bonus room with half bath above the garage is accessed from the kitchen via its own private staircase.  This would be ideal for a media center, office, game room or fifth bedroom.  Stairs may be provided to walk up attic space if desired.
