Carrboro Cottage

Carrboro, NC

Nestled on a small, wooded lot in a well-established neighborhood, this home was designed in response to the eclectic mix of bungalows and cottages nearby. The light-filled interior offers spacious rooms and cozy nooks. Windows are situated to maximize light and views while maintaining privacy. A screened porch and deck are located on the south side, surrounded by a garden. A studio apartment over the garage provides a comfortable home for a college student or university employee.

General Contractor: Robert Harndon
