Briar Patch Road by David Neff
While many of the best known shingle style houses were built on huge properties in seaside communities, countless more modest late 19th century examples were built on narrow suburban lots. Briar Patch Road is designed to fit perfectly on a small, narrow site.
The street facade features a sunny bay window with views of the front garden. While many narrow houses shut themselves off to their side lot lines, this home is surprisingly bright and airy with its three main rooms opening to a side terrace which, through landscape screening, can be transformed into a spacious outdoor living room. This terrace wraps around to the more private backyard and connects to a covered porch with outdoor fireplace that can be outfitted with removable glass or screen panels or with motorized screens.
Briar Patch Road can be upgraded to include an attached or detached garage of any size, with or without a second floor studio/bedroom(s).
An optional attic plan and basement plan are available as well.
