A Coastal Cottage Home Rehab

A Coastal Cottage Home Rehab

You may have recently read a post or two from us in which the name Jeffery Rosen has been mentioned. This is because Jeffery has joined the Yankee Barn Homes family as the Creative Director.  To use the word creative in combination with Jeffery may actually be understating. Jeffery has had 25 years in the interior decor business and 17 in the architectural design business. In other words Jeffrey can do it all, from creating the floor plans  to completing a finished structure, including hardscape and landscape. I’ve already posted on a few of his Yankee Barn Homes designs, a Contemporary Barn Home and An English Cottage in East Hampton.  Now I’d like to back up a bit to show you some of Jeffery’s other work. The coastal cottage home he found as a tear-down and completely rehabbed, is the perfect example of Jeffery’s vast capabilities. Enjoy! Coastal Cottage Home

The Exterior

I wish I had a few shots of what the cottage looked like prior to it’s rehabilitation as you’d be even more impressed. However, the pictures of the completed project are impressive enough.

Notice the window wells for the lower level. Planned to allow in more light, this feature changes a dark basement into bright added living space.

In all the shots of this exterior, you’ll see it’s the little added details which give this coastal cottage it’s unique appeal.

A pergola is used on the front entrance to keep the front facade light and airy.

The hardscape for the cottage is kept simple on purpose. An uncomplicated exterior requires an uncomplicated hardscape.

The Lower Level

I just mention the exterior window wells and how they allow for a lower level to be better utilized as living space. Here’s the proof.

Light floods into the beautifully appointed lower level.

Through the use of natural light, recessed lighting, and coastal beige tones, the cottage’s lower level becomes a retreat.

 

The Main Level

This is the level where the cottage truly shines. The removal of walls to create an open floor plan makes all the difference in the world! Again, the combinations of whites and light beige tones create an open and casual feel to the cottage.

The totally open living room…

The kitchen area is done completely in a bright white.

The master bedroom and bath are off to the far end of the cottage to maintain privacy. Notice the French doors which lead directly to a private patio.

The Upper Level

While small, the upper level is anything but cramped. Again, the same color scheme is used to tie the cottage together.

The classic cottage style stair is one of those touches you might not recognize as such, but you know it looks perfect in this home. The choice of dark treads with bright white kick backs and rail are perfect!

The two upper level bedrooms are connected by a shared bath.
