Garden cottage in Denmark
This gabled cottage presents a fairly closed appearance to the street with just a few small windows. But around back, large windows and French doors open it up to a sunny brick patio surrounded by a lushly-planted garden.
Those big south-facing windows make the small house quite bright inside. With its open, airy interior and garden views, the cottage feels more like a summerhouse out in the countryside than a suburban dwelling. However it is in fact located in Hellerup, a suburb of Copenhagen.
The ground floor is an open living space that wraps in a U-shape around the bathroom and a small entry hall. A steep flight of stairs accesses the spacious bedroom loft over one end of the living area. The wood floors, vaulted ceiling and exposed beams have been given a whitewash finish, lightening the wood while still allowing the grain to show.
A small second bedroom could easily be created on the main level by enclosing the space currently set up as a home office. Altogether the home has 80 m2 (861 ft2) of floor space.
This cottage is available for vacation rentals through Airbnb.
