MEN 5251

Cumberland Cottage is a rustic Craftsman style home plan design by award-winner Michael E. Nelson. This cozy, rustic house plan has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and 1 half-bath with 1,986 square feet of living space. Cumberland Cottage is ideal for newlyweds, new families, and aging in place! Rich, warm wood accents complement the stone porch columns to enhance the beautiful white wood siding for a warm, inviting exterior.

Rustic Craftsman Combination

The Cumberland Cottage floor plan has a sincere, welcoming exterior design. White board and batten siding contrast the rich, golden wood garage doors. The entry porch is framed with the same golden wood columns and accented with cool, gray stone. Two dormers above the main living area and the garage space break up the roofline for a cozy, rustic design. Sip teas and coffees in the early morning on the covered entry porch safely out of the rain while admiring the start of the day before retiring to the kitchen to whip up a wholesome breakfast! Front, garage, and rear access to the home minimizes unnecessary trips across the house while running errands and managing yardwork.

Rustic Open Floor Living

Walking up the wood steps to the covered entry porch, you can marvel at the Craftsman elements of the exterior entrance before opening into a brief foyer. The Cumberland Cottage foyer is perfect for a drop-off and pick-up station for school or work routines! A simple array of coat hooks or a buffet table with chargers and backpack bins allows the family to shake off the remains of the day before sinking into a comfortable evening relaxation. The foyer leads to the left into the Great Room. This cozy space showcases vaulted ceilings for a truly elegant, spacious gathering place. Great windows face the front property and maximize the natural lighting to light up the room. A stone fireplace on the far left wall is wonderful for big dinner party socialization or quiet, intimate time with loved ones.

The dining area can be found to the right of the Great Room. Informal large openings into the dining area allow for both impressive, formal sit-down meals and more casual, exciting dinner parties! A beautiful set of front-facing transom windows will help set the mood for sophisticated cocktail hours or family game night snack festivities! The dining space flows into the Kitchen towards the rear of the house plan. The Kitchen offers generous counter space in an L-shaped design. Additional seating is available at the high-low bar for up to four guests. For the more adventurous cooks and bakers, a kitchen prep island allows better cook space and storage! The rear of the Kitchen features a cozy Breakfast Room overlooking the outdoor grilling porch. A window set captures the light of the day while allowing ambitious grill masters the opportunity to continue monitoring their meals when fetching more plates to satisfy hungry stomachs. Entry to the grilling porch and backyard can be reached through the Breakfast Room.

Master Suite Paradise

Cumberland Cottage knows the value of privacy and the Master Suite wing ensures an intimate personal space for the head of the home. Exiting the Breakfast Room to the left leads to the Master Suite wing of the home plan. Entering the enclosed wing, the Master Bath entry is accessible ahead. This full bath features a dual sink vanity for a spouse or partner to organize favorite hygiene and beauty products neatly without a tussle for sink space. A 6’ bathtub rests beneath a side-facing privacy window. A large enclosed shower features a built-in shower seat for a relaxing respite next to a fresh linens closet. The Master Bath also has an enclosed toilet for added privacy.

Following to the rear of the home after entering the Master Suite wing is the Master Suite bedroom. A tray ceiling adds an extra element of luxury to your restful evenings. The Master Suite has great windows on the three exterior walls. This allows an incredible amount of natural light to filter into the room during all hours of the day.

Central Utility Rooms

A centrally located laundry room and half bath just past the staircase eases trips across the home to gather clothes and supplies! To the left of the Kitchen sits the spacious laundry room. Hanging racks offer quick clean-up after fresh loads finish. The Cumberland Cottage plan provides more than enough space for a side-by-side washer and dryer.

Garage Entry

The right portion of the Cumberland Cottage floor plan is for garage storage and a mudroom. From the Breakfast Room, entry to the garage can be accessed from the mudroom. The mudroom features a kid’s nook for art projects, homework, or any special activity. This is a great way to contain sticky fingers and paint spills! A bench seat with hanging space gives everyone an opportunity to ditch dirty boots and coats before making their way through the home. The mudroom leads into the 2-car garage. This spacious area includes a generous storage room for tools, equipment, and sports gear! Side entry to the garage is on the far right wall just past the storage room. Quickly grab the weedeater without navigating the maze of cars, trucks, or boats!

Upstairs Bedrooms & Bonus Room

Next to the laundry room across from the Kitchen is the staircase to the upstairs bedrooms and Bonus Room. To the left of the staircase landing is Bedroom 2. This room has a side-facing window and a modest step-in closet. Bedroom 2 features a unique shape and is the larger of the two bedrooms. This space would is ideal for older children. Due to the shape of the room, it also works for a shared bedroom for similarly aged children! Continuing down the landing will take you to the second full bath. A single sink vanity waits for nightly face cleansing and teethbrushing. The toilet and bath and privately enclosed in this shared upstairs bathroom. Bedroom 3 sits at the front of the home plan upstairs. This bedroom is the smaller of the two. A modest step-in closet is ideal for seasonal wardrobe changes. A window seat gathers the day’s light through front-facing windows. Bedroom 3 can also operate nicely as an office! At the end of the landing, on the far right of the upper level, is the Bonus Room. This generously spacious area has front- and side-facing windows. Use this space as a game room, a library, or a home theater! The Bonus Room has an almost limitless ability to fill your lifestyle need.
