I’ve become slightly obsessed with the modern farmhouse plans that Southern Living sells.
Remember when I tracked down a handful of houses built around the country with the same popular Sugarberry Cottage floor plan?
I just heard about another version of the house built in Prospect, Kentucky, from its owner. Take a look!
A Sugarberry Cottage in Norton Commons
This one has the same modern farmhouse look as others that used the popular floor plan, but they customized it with some changes here and there.
It’s fun to see how everyone designs their Sugarberry Cottages to look a little different.
I read that this one is a little bigger than most, too.
I haven’t seen two fireplace walls done the same way yet. This one has red brick up to the ceiling with windows and built-in bookshelves on either side instead of the glass doors leading to the porch the others had.
The home has 2,300+ sq ft. There are 1,525 sq ft on the first floor + 842 sq ft on the second, with an additional 1,500 in the unfinished basement.
The kitchen looks a little more open than some of the others we’ve seen.
Chris, the homeowner, says, “It has a 3 car attached garage also. My wife and I were inspired by Southern Living’s Sugarberry cottage articles and had architect Dan Grimm draw up the plans to our specifications, and had David Weis and his team at Meridian build it.”
Instead of a screened porch on the side as most Sugarberry Cottages have, this one was left open, but the homeowners plan to finish it someday. It offers an additional 200 sq ft of outdoor living space.
Because the lots are small in this neighborhood, the homeowners told me they paid extra for a corner lot they could fence in for their Shih Tzus named Rambo and Roslyn.
There are also three dogs parks within the neighborhood where they can play and meet other dogs.
The house was built in the Norton Commons neighborhood in Prospect, Kentucky, which has a lot of charming new houses being built in traditional styles like this one. For more photos and information, check Meridian Construction and take the video tour. Thanks to Chris for telling me about it!
