I'm crazy about houses. I like all varietals of houses - I like 'em big, I like 'em small, I like 'em rough and I like 'em weird. My blog is a collection of some of the neatest houses that I have come across in my house-hunting journeys.

Here’s a sweet summertime cottage on Chappaquiddick Island near Edgartown, Massachusetts.

If you haven’t fallen in love with the exterior – complete with “Rapunzel tower” – well, have a look inside…

It’s cozy, it’s playful, it’s classy and vintage – all at the same time.

Although the house isn’t actually that old (built in 1973), the support post & beams give it that aged Massachusetts cottage feel.

This 1,798 square foot home actually has five bedrooms, so it would be perfect for large family gatherings.

The decor throughout is bang-on summer cottage charm.

Disclosure: House Crazy Sarah’s favorite colors are green, blue and purple, so I’m completely enamored with the whole house color scheme.

On the roof of the sunroom, there’s a great deck with tons of space to lounge or enjoy a glass of tea…

Although this Chappy cottage isn’t on the water, it is very near a couple of beaches on the famous Island. Actually it is only an island some of the time.

Chappaquiddick technically isn’t an island because it is connected to Martha’s Vineyard with a narrow barrier beach. So most of the time it is a peninsula. But occasionally breaches of the barrier beach happen when strong storms blow through. At those times, Chappaquiddick is in fact, an island.

So now you know.

Have a good weekend!

Have you heard about this unfortunate house? It’s been all over the news this past week.

If you aren’t in the loop, here’s a quick run-down of the situation:

This beautiful old home was for sale last year and a family with young children bought it for $1.3 million in early June, 2014. Just three days after they closed, they received the first of several menacing letters from someone claiming to be stalking the house. The letters read in part:

I have been a bad girl. I haven’t posted on my blog in weeks and the last post I did was on Hitler. I swore out loud at another driver yesterday and have eaten way too many cheeseburgers lately. House Crazy Sarah needs to do some penance. So let’s go to church.

A church converted to a house!
