Designed to fit easily into a compact lot, this getaway combines yesterday’s cottage charm with today’s open floor plan. A beadboard-clad and gabled exterior leads into a modern interior, with a light-filled great room that encompasses the living room, kitchen and dining area. A comfortable master-bedroom suite rounds out the first floor. Upstairs are two additional family or guest bedrooms and a full bath. This design, by Visbeen Architects, Inc., won second place Custom Luxury in the 2010 American Residential Design Awards from the American Institute of Building Designs.
