Four Popular Features of Cottage Style Homes near Asheville, NC

Why are cottage style homes so popular today? Is it their cozy, storybook appeal? Their smaller, adaptable design? Their open house floor plans that flow from room to room?

Whatever the reason, cottage style homes remain one of America’s favorite house floor plans, and River Stone Cottages near Hendersonville and Asheville, North Carolina, is no exception. From the picturesque windows to the steep rooflines, families can’t seem to get enough. Here are four standard features of our cottages that homeowners really appreciate:

1. Double-paned windows and an insulated front door: Before going green was the hip thing to do, it was the right thing to do. We have always built homes that were designed to save energy and keep your monthly utility bills low. These features have only grown in popularity in recent years.

2. Choice of carpets and exterior colors: Homeowners love the fact that they can choose from a variety of exterior colors and several brand-name, stain-resistant carpets. It’s like you have the freedom and flexibility of working with a custom home builder (without all of the headaches).

3. 30-year architectural roof shingles: This one may surprise you, but it’s true. We use only the most durable, finest quality roof shingles on every home we build. It’s not that new homeowners worry about replacing their roof. It’s the fact that the thought never even crosses their mind.

4. Year-round lawn mowing: Do we really need to explain this one? After all, who loves mowing their lawn, especially during this time of year? No matter which one of our house floor plans you choose, you will enjoy having someone else keep your lawn looking right all year long.

We invite you to cozy up to one of our River Stone Cottages today or check out our cottage floor plans in our other planned communities.
