Cottage

 

a single-family, individual residence (either urban or rural) on a small plot of land. Most cottages have two stories and an interior staircase. On the first floor there are usually pantries, a living room, and a kitchen; the bedrooms are on the second floor. After its emergence in England in the late 16th and early 17th century, the cottage became the traditional type of English dwelling. Cottages are also widespread in other European countries (primarily the Scandinavian countries) and in the United States. Most of the cottages in the USSR were built in the 1920's, primarily in new factory settlements.
