What a bit of perfection! Lovely, lovely home.
Some of the inside reminds me of my Grandparent’s home in Pennsylvania, when I was around 3-4 years-old. Beautiful!
This house oozes charm and character! They’re just not made like that anymore.
What a little gem! I especially like all the woodwork throughout the living room. The kitchen I’m not so crazy about. It doesn’t quite fit in with the house in terms of style or appearance. Still, it wouldn’t be difficult to swap doors and hardware on the cabinets to make them more appropriate to the rest of the house. Overall it’s a beauty!
Wonderfully well care for over the years! Lovely!
Love that house how many square feet is it?
Dorothy said it exactly right; This house is perfection! I’d love to see the layout.
You guys have OVERDONE yourselves! I currently live in a 114 year old farmhouse on five aces that we TOTALLY rebuilt. Now I’m about to start a guest house project. Your home has so many wonderful ideas that’s simply good design. You’re proof smaller home living equals more style and livability.
Small slice of heaven!
This would be my dream home in my golden years. The one I have when I move to where my kids settle and the grandkids come hang out with me and the kitties.
Oooooh, I do love this one.
is this cottage for sale and where is it located..thank you
Just wonderful! As one person stated, “A gem of a small house” – I’d move in in a heartbeat! Well done!
I could move into this place right now and , live there happily for the rest of my life.
Main / dining room are room the ornament of this house. The now rare old growth Douglas Fir which I imagine has built entire house is glowing dully in those rooms where panelling and joists were left unpainted I would really consider stripping paint from bedrooms wood as through our house the wood would be similarly shroomy in its swoops whirls and growth direction patterns made from a venerable old (like 400 year old) Tree. At night lit by candle light I can imagine the main rooms comes alive as flickering flame would make the swirls jump and undulate so all around the walls would seemingly dance all around anyone lucky enough occupy this beautifully other worldly space. At this time I disagree this house isn’t really Craftsman 1915- 1927 but the fire place is; I was almost moved to tears for its beauty green tile wow. I wonder if proto-craftsman is a term. I respectfully put forward this house its clean lines straight and square rooms minimal ornamentation is the older Edwardian 1900 -1915 (years are a good guess give or take a year) the answer to wild throw everything on it and keep it strange Queen Anne Victorian (1888 1903)I , Edwardian houses tend to ward bay windows or round windows and thin slat wood exteriors like this house. I maybe mistaken but craftsman houses are always either a shaggy shingle exterior sometimes stucco and have a lot of ceiling joists exposed more built in cabinets would show too in fact low hanging large thick beams from front porch to back porch would be evident in craftsman. All that said I would have loved to seen the old kitchen and bathroom because the original main living dinning rooms are so magnificent here. kitchen remodeled no trace of built in nooks where is the built in breakfast nook was there a pantry with glass door cabinets Im bummed nice big kitchen but you know I wish more things survived into out time than actually has the hands of our grandfathers were more skilled than our own I hate to say. I think the bathroom didn’t survive the late 1980’s big basement I would think and maybe a small attic the place is fit and looks sturdy I would bet money house is built anywhere within 1907 -1913 . Thanks for showing
I Love your house ,can i have a room,please………………………………………
ever notice how many of the small houses have guitars as an accessory to the ambiance .
Absolutely gorgeous house, shocking furnishings. I’m so sorry, but to have such a beautiful space and decorate it like 1950’s trailer is just sad. A lovely sofa, some also lovely pieces in the bedroom but a kitchen and bathroom that have been brutalised right back to the worst of s1970’s 80’s suburbia, ruffled curtains and all. The stunningly elegant tile fireplace, ancient wood, exquisite lines of a true “Craftsman” filled with a modern box store dining room “set”? Too much for me. I wish the owners could see what a genuine…mostly….gift they have …and would honor it…even a little.
OMG so very cute! can I move in??
