There is something romantic about the idea of a quaint cottage. Whether it’s a mountain getaway, an oceanside retreat with the sound of crashing waves just outside, or just a special place to come home to every day, a cottage is timeless.

While a cottage can feel like it comes right out of a favorite childhood book, it can also have a modern, sleek design. There are a lot of practical qualities, including that:

  • They’re perfect for rural, suburban, or urban settings.
  • They’re suitable for different family sizes.
  • They can be used as a vacation home, first home, or retirement property. 
  • They can be one or two stories with a smaller upstairs. 

The classic cottage design is gaining in popularity because it fits so many different lifestyles, including those of:

  • First-time homebuyers who want something affordable yet charming.
  • Retirees who want convenient living that’s easy to lock and leave for effortless travel.
  • Weekend warriors who want an affordable vacation home near the mountains or ocean.
  • Families who simply want to downsize their homes.

Fortunately, at Adair Homes, we have clever cottage floor plans that combine classic architectural charm with modern features for a home that feels just right. And like every Adair Homes floor plan, our cottages include an almost unlimited number of ways to personalize your home.
