There are no roads in Geithoorn. Only dreamy canals dripping with lush flora and quiet canoes gliding by…
Am I daydreaming?
No, I swear – this place is real.
My friend Canadian artist David Lacey and his wife Heather Stephens like to tackle house projects in their spare time. They are probably laughing boisterously as they read this because they have so many “project” houses, that they have no spare time. David and Heather are also responsible for the X-permit Cabin, The Remodeled School House, and their own home, A Seaside Retreat.
Their latest adventure is 43 Maple Avenue in beautiful Wolfville, Nova Scotia. They bought it as an investment to rent but it needed some work.
Thatched roof cottage in a village in the English countryside? For sale and fully renovated? Rose covered?
Here you go!
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.
