Well, I'm going to try and make it up to you with this adorable little Cape cottage. I know we've already covered the fact that I don't show you anything bigger or more fabulous, but I like the cottagey-type houses. It's my way.
So. This one has a back yard that runs right into my Alma Mater, The College of St. Catherine: the bestest place in the world.
Anyhoo.....while it's on a busy street? It's a great location. The price is a bit steep. $400-something thousand. I'd love to tell you exactly, but you see, I started this post on the weekend and since then, the house has been removed from the website.
But it's been for sale forever. The real sadness is that I have a link to the website at the end of this post where they had many more fabulous photos of this house. Especially the back of the house with a stone deck and pergola. Which is what I want here at Elizabeth-freakin'-Hill. But since I never printed out a picture, how will I remember??? Huh??? Answer me that!! Oh. And the link probably won't work, either. But I'm leaving it in there....just in case.
Alright. Here is the adorable outside. I can't remember how many bedrooms and bathrooms. Probably 4 beds and 2 baths....something like that.
Oooooo! An aerial view. Special!
Sweet-Mary-Mother-Of-God. Look at that adorable sun room, will ya?
The dining room.
The living room. I love how you can look straight through to the back of the house through the sun room.
The sweet little kitchen. Hello?? Where is the dishwasher?? Hellooooo??? Dishwasher? Humph.
SweetJESUS! Look at that adorable bathroom!!!! Elizabeth Hill had plans all drawn out for one just like it. The problem is, the plumbing wouldn't have worked out and the plans were drawn by the previous owners who didn't know what the heck they were doing. So? No bathroom upstairs.
And here's that precarious link I was telling you about:
To see the rest of the photos, go here.
Next time? We will discuss my furniture painting situation. It's not pretty, people. Not pretty at all.
