The Kittiwake is a country house plan ideal for those who enjoy efficient living or are looking for a vacation retreat. This cabin plan may have a small footprint but the open floor plan keeps it feeling comfortable.
Slender posts frame the front door creating a small covered porch that protects guests from the summer heat or winter rain. Stepping inside the cozy entry hall way offers a coat closet on the right. Down the hall and to the left is the first of two bedrooms. Continuing down the entry hallway a set of bi-fold doors hide the washer and dryer. At the end of the hall and to the left is the larger of the two bedrooms. This space can serve as the master bedroom and features a walk-in closet.
The Kittiwake offers one full bathroom on the main level complete with separate shower and soaking tub.
In the center of the home a set of stairs leads down to the basement. The unfinished basement level provides flexibility to the Kittiwake floor plan. This space can be finished with additional living area, bedrooms or recreation/hobby space.
The right side of the floor plan is filled with the great room. Kitchen, dining and living rooms blend seamlessly together. The open concept floor plan provides an informal gathering space and allows conversations to flow throughout the room. At the front of the great room is the family room this space is naturally bright from windows along two walls. At the back of the great room is the kitchen with built-in dining area. The L-shaped counters provide plenty of work space paired with ample cabinet storage. To the right a sliding glass door provides access to the side yard and small deck. With its proximity to the kitchen, this would make an ideal outdoor grilling space.
