Thatched roof cottage in a village in the English countryside? For sale and fully renovated? Rose covered?
Here you go!
The dark exposed beams bring that wonderful weighted period look into an otherwise, light and bright decor.
The grounds are also a huge selling point:
Perfection in the English countryside.
Actually, it’s all too perfect.
“I own a 17th Century thatched roof cottage in the village of Berrick Salome”, says no one that I’ve ever known.
But in a world where lottery dreams do occasionally come true, we can be hopelessly optimistic!
I found this vintage cottage in the mountain town of Georgetown, Colorado.
Georgetown is a historic landmark district that has been kept largely in its Victorian state. The town definitely has that Hallmark Christmas card feel about it.
In fact, our favorite singer here at House Crazy – John Denver – was so taken with the village that he actually filmed a movie in Georgetown back in 1986 called The Christmas Gift.
The price of this 1880 two-bedroom bungalow is $335,000. That may seem high for a small older home, but keep in mind that Georgetown is just a short drive from world class skiing. And look how perfect it is inside…
The house has southern exposure – which is a big selling point in these high mountain towns surrounded by towering mountain ranges.
This adorable home in trendy Venice, California is heating up the house web with debate about its origins.
It is purported to be a Sears and Roebuck Co mail order kit home but there is some disagreement as to what model it is.
Discussion on the Sears Homes Facebook page confirmed what I suspected.
Can’t get away this long weekend? Me neither. But look what I found for our virtual vacation….
A tiny cottage made of stone!
It is rather rustic on the outside but almost ethereal on the inside:
Behold the miracle of white paint. (And perfect cottage decorating sense!)
