What’s So Special About The Cottages?
It’s the way our coastal North Carolina custom, Craftsman style cottages make you feel.
From the moment you enter our communities, you see lush landscapes; mature trees; natural ponds; gently curving streets and sidewalks; and of course, our Craftsman-style cottages that celebrate charm and style with their wide, welcoming front porches; colorful exteriors; and classic Arts and Crafts details.
It’s all in the design and details.
Each cottage home is unique–from the conditioned crawl space that increases the home’s overall energy efficiency by 35%; to its open, interconnected floor plan; to the many, many added energy-efficient features earning each home RESNET certification; to the exterior and interior architectural details; to the meticulous, custom-designed landscaped beds.
It’s the ideal Southeastern coastal North Carolina location: Ocean Isle Beach, Southport, or Holly Ridge.
Each community has so much to offer: close proximity to beaches, adjacency to local shops and fare and short distances to the culture and excitement of historic Southport and Wilmington and lively North Myrtle and Myrtle Beach.
It’s built by The Cottage Building Company–a team of building professionals with a long track record of successes, quality new homes, and satisfied homeowners.
The Cottage Building Team team is special. Expect personal attention; amazing results; and a well-built, energy efficient, custom cottage that feels like home from the moment you catch a glimpse of its iconic front porch
What’s a Cottage?
Experts in Craftsman style cottages, say it’s the floor plan that qualifies the home as a cottage, not its exterior style or ornament alone. There is a commitment to efficiency and flow that characterizes a cottage. Some cottage loyalists have suggested that cottage living can promote better health and more harmonious family relationships. (The Bungalow, Charles White.)
With a style that stands the test of time, Craftsman style cottages are being re-discovered and are gaining enormous popularity for the smart space design that launched them to fame over a century ago. The Cottage Building Team is pleased to apply the tenets of true Craftsman cottage building to every home in our Cottage collection–integrity, character, design simplicity, flow, efficient and comfortable spaces, and harmony with the outdoors.
