(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.)
An authentic shingle style home truly fuses with the surrounding landscape. Pickering Cove is the perfect choice for a smaller home on a relatively wide lot. Its long, shallow footprint creates a private backyard and interior space full of light and garden views.
Upon entering the home, one is greeted by a dynamic entry hall which is bathed in sunlight from a row of windows above the stair. This entry flows into a large great room and a kitchen/family room, both of which open up onto an expansive rear terrace. The great room also opens to a covered porch with outdoor fireplace and views of both backyard and side garden. This porch can be outfitted with removable glass or screen panels or with motorized screens.
Pickering Cove can be upgraded to include an attached or detached garage of any size, with or without a second floor studio/bedroom(s).

1st Floor Plan
Like a true shingle style house, Pickering Cove 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, give this relatively small home a surprisingly spacious feel.
Set between the great room and kitchen/family room described in the site plan section, Pickering Cove also features a sun-filled dining room that projects out onto the rear terrace.
Beyond the kitchen, a large mudroom, laundry room, and pantry ensure that Pickering Cove operates with the efficiency of a much larger home.

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.
Pickering Cove is shown here with 842 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.
Pickering Cove 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.
