Linden Hills Cottage
Sitting on a compact city lot in a mature neighborhood of Colonials and Cape Cods, this new two-story, cottage-style home blends beautifully into its surroundings. The home with white panels and shakes atop an earth-toned brick base, replaced an older, single house. But, by sharing a driveway with the home next door and utilizing a modest roofline, it respects its neighbors and the neighborhood in which it resides. The kitchen is awash in soft white and natural light from windows in a variety of locations including above the upper cabinets. The home’s combination living/dining room flows from the kitchen to the front of the home while glass paneled pocket doors open to office/sun room. French doors from both spaces open to a screen porch with a gas fireplace to extend its use from early spring to late fall. The spaces throughout the house are designed for flexibility and the rooms can have multiple uses with doors than can be closed or opened to create greater coziness or to accommodate larger groups.
