When your nest is empty, the family home may feel a bit too large for two people. A smaller place like this guest house could be the answer. Created specifically for the comfort of visiting family and friends, it sits a stone’s throw away from the main residence, surrounded by lush gardens and tall trees. The setting is peaceful and quiet. The house, custom designed by Eric Shephard Architects, is just 600 square feet. But it’s big enough for two and makes such effective use of space, it’s perfect inspiration for anyone thinking about downsizing.
All in all, a darling little house . . . and entirely livable.
