Ivy Spring Cottage House Plan – From the Southern Living Design Collection. The Ivy Spring Cottage is an elegant ranch with a cottage feel. The stone detail with the board and batten shutters give its exterior a homey touch. The main level leads straight into the great room, breakfast area with tray ceiling detail and peninsula kitchen. The formal dining room is just off of the foyer. The master bedroom is just off of the kitchen, and offers a private, covered porch, as well as a master bath with his-and-her sinks and walk-in closet. The washer and dryer area is just off of the two car garage nearby. Two additional bedrooms and one full bath can be found off of the great room on the right wing of the home.
