What’s the Difference Between a Cottage and a Single Family home?




The Cottage floor plan is the perfect combination of comfortable-style living with innovative design. Traditionally, cottages were a simple space with a lot of light, clean lines, and a warm, homey feel. Also, a cottage floor plan really emphasizes the great room as the center of the home. Combining that with an EDGEhomes open floor plan, these homes take main floor living to a whole new level of comfort. In addition to that, a cottage also combines the benefits of a single family home with the amenities of a multi family home. The cottages of today are not what they used to be. Homebuilders like EDGEhomes combine the benefits of a single family home where there are no shared walls, with the amenities of a multi family home. What else makes an EDGEhome cottage different than others? Let’s discuss.

Built for Comfort

These smaller homes truly maximize their square footage with a well-designed floor plan and one-of-a-kind features. For example, in our Horizon Heights model home, the kitchen backsplash is a twist on a classic marble feature and a typical cottage farmhouse sink. Along with these unique features, our designers typically take the usual gathering spaces of a home and add new and inviting textures to add additional warmth and light. With inviting gathering rooms and fantastic kitchens, the cottage floor plan allows your guests to feel right at home as soon as they walk in the door.

 

Made for Memories

The design of cottage floor plans isn’t done by accident. The EDGEhomes cottage is specifically crafted for making memories. With incredible finishes and well-crafted workmanship, these homes give families space where they feel at home as soon as they step in the door. In fact, these homes give you the single family home you always wanted to be combined with the multi family home amenities you never knew you could have. These homes are all about using ordinary spaces in an extraordinary way. Instead of having an excessive amount of unused space, every room has a purpose centered around making lasting memories.
