New Urban Acadian Cottage

Eclipse Development is thrilled to showcase the completion of the New Urban Acadian Cottage, a custom-designed residence nestled in the heart of The Village community in Covington, LA. This project represents a thoughtful fusion of Acadian architectural charm and the principles of New Urbanism, emphasizing the creation of a close-knit neighborhood atmosphere through distinctive design and community-focused planning.


The New Urban Acadian Cottage is set in a community that celebrates the essence of New Urbanism. The community emphasizes fostering real-sense neighborhoods through the use of small lots, rear-loading alleyway garages, and welcoming front porches. This approach not only enhances the community’s aesthetic appeal but also encourages interaction among residents, creating a vibrant and connected living environment.


Eclipse Development initiated the design of this unique cottage, laying the foundation for a home that combines the rustic elegance of Acadian architecture with modern living standards. The project was then meticulously detailed by Diamond Design, ensuring that every aspect of the cottage reflects the highest quality and attention to detail. The result is a home that stands as a beacon of architectural beauty and community spirit in The Village.


The New Urban Acadian Cottage features an inviting front porch, a hallmark of both Acadian design and New Urbanism. This porch serves as a transitional space between the public realm of the street and the private comfort of the home. It encourages residents to engage with their neighbors and enjoy the communal spirit that The Village is known for.


Inside, the cottage boasts modern amenities and finishes, complementing the traditional Acadian aesthetic with the convenience and comfort of contemporary living. The use of rear-loading alleyway garages preserves the streetscape’s beauty and supports a pedestrian-friendly environment, further embodying the principles of New Urbanism.


Eclipse Development’s New Urban Acadian Cottage in The Village of Covington, LA, is more than just a residence; it’s a testament to the possibilities that arise when traditional design meets community-centric urban planning. This project not only offers a beautiful and functional home for its residents but also contributes to the rich tapestry of The Village, making it a cherished addition to the Covington community.
