#ALP-09BB Fairhope Collection: 2010 Parade Home House Plan
This lovely nature-inspired cottage was built by Pat Achee of Achee Properties in The Waters located in Fairhope, Alabama. The calming, natural hues of the board and batten siding and wooden shutters, coupled with the rustic accents of rough sawn columns, antique brick and decorative open rafter tails make this 2010 Parade Home truly a dream come true. As you step onto the 10 foot front porch, which wraps all the way around to the kitchen wing, you will also notice the stained butted siding and beautiful antique pine double doors. The Foyer, Dining and Living Room areas are open, looking onto a 14x24 screened in porch through 2 pairs of french doors. To your right is the Kitchen, in which you will see a distinctive cooking area with a gas cooktop, as well as a gorgeous granite-top island complete with a wrap around bar, undermount sink and dishwasher. Beyond the Kitchen is the Breakfast and Keeping Room, which includes a triple window to let lots of natural light in, as well as a pair of french doors to the Grilling Porch for family and friend cookouts. The Pantry, Study, and Laundry Room are all accessible from the Kitchen and Breakfast Room as well. All four bedrooms of this home have their own full bath. The Master Suite includes a privacy hall and its own entrance into the rear porch. The natural looks and open layout of this home make it seem more like a retreat or relaxing vacation spot, perfect for anyone wanting to get away without really having to go anywhere.
