Waterfront Cottage

This cottage is designed as a weekend retreat in the heart of St. Michaels, Maryland. It features a flexible contemporary floorplan inside an iconic American cottage style. The American Gothic gable and covered front porch establish a friendly presence from the street, with a swinging gate through the front hedge leading to the porch and front door. The entry vestibule opens into a spacious two-story living room, which is further amplified by the adjacent eat-in kitchen. We have designed a pergola-covered terrace in the rear garden and spa to extend living areas out of doors.
