(Note: This site plan is conceptual and is intended to illustrate a typical siting of this home design. Actual building sites vary based on lot size, lot shape, orientation, and natural features.)
In classic shingle style fashion, Hither Lane flows outward into a series of garden rooms creating seamless indoor/outdoor living.
Approaching the house, the first outdoor room one encounters is a welcoming courtyard space set in the nook of the L-shaped plan.
Upon entering the home, one discovers that the great room, dining room, and den all connect directly to a large rear terrace that has a sunny central section flanked by two covered porches.
The kitchen and breakfast bay open to a side yard which could feature a small garden or, in wider lots, could be the perfect spot for a swimming pool, play area, or tennis court.
On the opposite side of the house, there’s even an opportunity for an outdoor fireplace terrace that could serve as a private retreat with views to the rear lawn.
The garage at Hither Lane can be adjusted to face in any direction and can be upgraded to three cars.

Like a true shingle style house, Hither Lane has a layout which is both modern in its open flow and traditional in its strongly defined rooms. The primary rooms have 8 foot tall french doors and large 6′-6″ tall windows that fill the spaces with natural light and encourage easy flow to outdoor rooms.
First floor ceilings are 9′-3″ high which, along with the oversized windows, create a surprisingly spacious feel.
The large great room forms the heart of Hither Lane and, through wide openings, connects to the kitchen, formal dining room, and a covered terrace. Across the front hall, a cozy den features a fireplace and its own covered terrace.
One or both of the covered porch can be outfitted with removable glass or screen panels or with motorized screens.

Note: In some localities, full basements are standard while in others, crawl spaces, or slabs on grade prevail. Drawings sets are available with any of these three options. Full basements can be left unfinished or can be fully finished. The layout at right is just one possible basement layout. There are many other possibilities which can typically be worked out with your contractor during construction.
Hither Lane is shown here with 940 square feet of finished space including a large playroom, a bar, an exercise room, a bathroom, and an optional fireplace.
Full basements on this website are detailed with numerous full height windows, filling the space with natural light and making it feel anything but underground.
Hither Lane is shown with four large basement windows and additional windows are possible if more finished space is desired. A walk-out basement with french doors is also possible for sloping sites.
Note: Southampton Series homes have the potential for finished space on the third level. Check local building codes for restrictions on habitable third floors. Roof pitch can be lowered to meet local height restrictions.
Hither Lane has 980 square feet of sun-filled third floor space that could be converted into a studio/office, a playroom, or any number of other possibilities.
Third floor bedroom suites are also an option.
