The Yorkshire

Yorkshire English Cottage
The Yorkshire

he Yorkshire is a surprisingly functional 2,464 square feet given its "cottagy" English Country appeal.  Similar to Dorchester Cottage, but in reverse, this plan offers some additional detailing and design elements such as exposed rafter tails and a variety of roof types. 


Typical English construction of limestone with wooden accents in the form of brackets, trusses, and half-timbering give it a definite English appeal.  Window boxes filled with flowers, tile roofing and terracotta chimney pots add to the authentic look of this updated, country house.

A cozy entryway leads to a small vestibule just off the study with fireplace and high, beamed ceiling.  A large family room with fireplace, vaulted and beamed ceiling lies just beyond.  Double doors lead to a small covered patio and garden and a wall of windows allows for great natural light and views.  By  opening the space to the kitchen and dining area, we have created a very functional and surprisingly airy space.  A breezeway which could double as a useful covered terrace off the dining area connects the house to a two car garage.


Three bedrooms and convenient laundry room lie at the other end of the house off a central hall.  Two bedrooms share a "Jack and Jill" bath and allow for plenty of closet space.  The master bedroom has a sizable bath with double sink, tub and shower.  A private toilet room with its own window are at one end adjacent to the large walk-in closet.


The Yorkshire's generous, open living areas and functional bedroom wing make this understated house functional and very livable.
