Rustic Cottage With Stone Steps and Cottage Garden
Rugged stone steps lead to a personal botanical garden overlooking the mountains. The rustic exterior of the cottage is marked by green trim, wood shingles and a tin roof, and the hardy cottage garden is surrounded by a stone retaining wall.
A step outside the blue French doors leads to the front patio at this California beach home. White cushioned swivel chairs and a built-in corner bench surround the ground-level fire pit, and a large dining table with wire chairs creates an outdoor dining space. Plants border the yard, adding natural life and color.
A beautiful wooden entryway pairs with blue shutters to give this home a traditional cottage feel. Stone walls topped with red siding expand the home's space and create an intriguing shape. Concrete squares provide a walkway to the front door through the surrounding gravel and mulched yard.

This ranch home combines a variety of building materials to create an adorable cottage look. The brick siding, cedar shakes, slate patio tiles and stone planters mix beautifully with the swirled topiaries, pine-needle mulch and flowering window boxes.
