A curving balustrade leads guests up to the shady gallery of our Gulf Coast Cottage. Raised high on brick piers to keep its owners cool and dry, this cottage attractively reminds you of the traditional Lowcountry homes of the South. A high hipped roof covers the gallery that wraps three sides of the house. The broad, deep gallery forms a functional cool zone around the front of the house and works with transomed double doors to help ventilate the house naturally. The plan includes 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths in approximately 2,500 square feet of heated space. It offers the formality typical of older Southern homes and a semiopen floor plan often associated with today's houses. For example, the living room, center hall, and dining room may be used separately or as one large room for entertaining. Wide cased openings create one spacious sweep of space, while the perimeter gallery affords spillover space for parties. Ceiling heights are 10 feet throughout the house. The working plans for the cottage include a separate double garage with a similar look. Our Gulf Coast Cottage was designed by William H. Phillips, Jr., of Dauphin Island, Alabama. An exclusive design for Southern Living® by William H. Phillips.
