Journalist, writer, environmentalist and feminist, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, born in 1890, was a woman far ahead of her time. For most of her very long life she was a resident of Coconut Grove, Florida, where she built this delightful fairytale cottage in the Tudor/Gothic style.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. This cottage is simple in plan and needs very few adaptations to bring it in line with modern expectations. It is a 2 bedroom plan, with a single large social space and a smaller study that adjoins both the social space and one of the bedrooms. It is a compact and efficient plan that could be built equally well in the city, suburb or countryside. The cottage has outside dimensions of approximately 32'x 46'.
Please visit my other listings for many other drawings I am offering. I have house plans in wide variety of styles including Colonial, Craftsman, and Prairie, as well as plans of architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Irving Gill, Purcell & Elmslie and others.
SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube. This listing includes architectural prints ONLY. Any photos shown in the description are for information only and are NOT included in your purchase. Thanks.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are not complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf
