Perch Pond Is a Custom-Built Cottage
Perch Pond’s design was inspired by Yankee Barn Home’s Roost cabin. The Roost is a small post and beam custom built cottage Yankee Barn built for a gentleman and his friends to use when quail hunting. Perch Pond’s owners saw the Roost design and knew it was the perfect prototype for their mountainside property. Learning Yankee Barn Homes was a custom design/build company made their decision easier. Altering the plan to suit their lifestyle was important and Yankee Barn could accommodate their needs. A custom built cottage was exactly what they had envisioned, including the ability to incorporate their style into the design.
Small Cottage With Huge Appeal
Perch Pond is a small post and beam design perfect as a primary home, a second home or a guest house. The homeowners use Perch Pond as their primary residence. They share the cozy home with their four dogs and use the loft space as a second bedroom for guests.
The use of an open floor plan and a lofted ceiling create the look and feel of extensive space. Strategically placed window groupings allow for natural light to flow throughout the house. The back entrance uses creative design to incorporate a laundry room and half-bath behind an eye-catching sliding barn door. The opposite wall holds a mud room area with built-in closets and bench for the perfect transitional space.
The kitchen is a masterpiece in both design and storage space with custom cabinets from Crown Point Cabinetry. White walls and dark wood tones set the stage for the kitchen and great room. The mix is perfectly balanced to create a bight yet cozy feel to the space.
The great room manages to accommodate three “mini” areas while not appearing the least bit over crowded. The focal point for the room is a gorgeous gas fireplace with tile that mimics birch bark. It’s the perfect feature to set off the dark brown fireplace in this mountainside home.
Rounding out the first level design of Perch Pond is a nicely sized primary bedroom with private bath. The bedroom has amazing mountain views while the bathroom is designed using the colors of water (perch Pond is close by) and stone found in the surrounding terrain.
More Space Than You Think
The upper loft is the perfect space for a number of uses. Our homeowners use it as a guest bedroom and yoga practice space. The space might also be used as an office area, a flex room with potential for hobbies, a kid’s play area or a sewing room.
The lower level incorporates the mechanical room and storage space, with potential for another bedroom or family room.
Perch Pond is a custom built cottage that affords nearly endless possibilities for smaller upscale living space.
