Seven Fountain Plaza Cottages accommodate vacation homebuyers seeking smaller properties, with prices starting in the $400,000s.
Port Aransas, Texas, May 30, 2019 — Sea Oats Group announces the ground-breaking of Fountain Plaza Cottages – a collection of seven, small-scale beach homes grouped inside a landscaped courtyard at Cinnamon Shore North. Each cottage is under 1,000 square feet, with names like Minnow and Scallop to denote their diminutive scale.
“We’re excited to offer these one- and two-bedroom, single-family cottage homes — and to work with a quality builder like Waggoner Custom Homes,” says Developer Jeff Lamkin of Sea Oats Group, Inc. “Not everyone needs a multi-story, multi-bedroom space at the coast, but they still want privacy and the charm of a community like Cinnamon Shore.”
The Fountain Plaza Cottages offer very livable floor plans, with ingenious use of spacethat capitalizes on the Tiny House movement and on the down-sizing trend among American homebuyers. Yet each showcases the rigorous design standards of Cinnamon Shore. Home plans by Schnell Urban Design, LLC, celebrate classic cottage architecture, with design details such as dormer windows, exposed rafter tails, decorative porch railings, and ideas from beach communities that have stood the test of time.
Of four home designs, three will repeat in the plaza, giving the group aesthetic continuity. They range from a 749-square-feet plan for cottages named Seahorse and Minnow to a 971-square-foot design for a pair of homes called Sand Crab and Starfish. There’s an 853-square-foot plan for two, one-bedroom cottages, Sand Dollar and Scallop, while Piggy Perch, with one bedroom, 841 square feet and a crowning cupola, serves as a focal point for the enclave.
“It’s been so much fun to look at these plans and prepare to build these classic cottages,” says Pete Waggoner of Waggoner Custom Homes, based in Port Aransas. “There’s such innovative use of space inside, while the porches and balconies really foster a sense of relaxation and community.”
Fourth-generation German carpenters, Waggoner and his brother, Tim, trained as true apprentices in the craft. They developed loyal crews who have worked with them on projects from the West Coast back into the heart of Texas and along the Lone Star State’s Coastal Bend, where they’ve built homes for the past 14 years. The sought-after duo has already contributed their skills to Cinnamon Shore, building several homes there, including the Coastal Living Idea House in 2015. “We’re glad to bring a new collection of cottages and a new style of single-family residences to the Cinnamon Shore village,” Tim Waggoner says. “It’s really an amazing collection with such great curb appeal.”
The Fountain Plaza Cottages are going up just beyond the Social Circle, helping to finish one side of Cinnamon Shore North. The community has grown for more than a decadeand nears completion, while it recently broke ground on an expansion, Cinnamon Shore South, located just one mile away.
Another group of smaller homes – Sunset Cottages – is also under way at Cinnamon Shore North, offering more small-scale alternatives for Texas homebuyers.“Both sets ofimpeccably designed cottages add mores options for those looking to invest in coastal real estate or to establish a go-to getaway on the Texas Coast,” says Jodi Peters, managing broker at Cinnamon Shore Realty.
Known for its welcoming, cottage charm and resort-like amenities, Cinnamon Shore represents the best of coastal architecture and quality construction on the Texas Coast.
