Unique Country House Plan - The Excelsior Farmhouse Cottage

Featuring wrap around porch, an open floor plan and a walkout basement!

1 story

Our Excelsior Farmhouse Cottage house plan was designed by Ron Brenner of  ron brenner architects in Stillwater, Minnesota. This home design features a welcoming wrap around front porch, a screen porch, and open floor plan and also has a walkout basement.  The exterior design comfortably combines elements from traditional farmhouse and contemporary cottage home styles.

This home plan’s exterior is characterized by this designer’s exquisite attention to scale, proportion, window patterns, materials and all of the details. A beautifully proportioned second story front gable and graceful columns provide a striking entry to the home.  Subtle overhangs with delicate brackets provide interesting shadow lines and help to protect the windows below. Everywhere you look one sees the care and attention of the designer.

The main floor accommodates kitchen, living and dining areas within its elegant open floor plan. Upstairs the three bedrooms, including the master suite, are neatly placed beneath and interesting roof line.  An above garage bonus room provides ample space for an additional bedroom and family flex areas.  


The Excelsior Farmhouse Cottage house plan comes with a full basement foundation. The basement is unfinished but indicates rough in locations for a future bathroom. The plan could easily be adapted by your local Architect or Builder to accommodate lookout, walkout or other lot configurations.


Due to licensing agreements this home cannot be built in Washington, Ramsey, Dakota, Scott, Anoka, Carver or Hennepin Counties in Minnesota.
