Historic cottage in Buena Vista, Colorado for sale

This cute yet rustic cottage in Buena Vista, Colorado is currently for sale and I have been keeping my eye on it for a while now.

It’s totally charming and I love the darn thing, but darn it, the house is short a bedroom (I need at least 3 and this house only has 2!)

Listed at $179,000, this home has 1481 square feet on a half acre lot right in historic Buena Vista – a lovely small town in central Colorado.

Have a look inside…

Built in 1899, this house still has the original log beam walls with chinking exposed!

Other things have been updated such as the flooring (looks like laminate)…

I haven’t actually been inside this house (yet), but I have driven by it a couple of times over the past year. The lot is large and treed but the sad looking two-car garage definitely needs some lovin’…

Back inside, there is a decently sized kitchen with vintage cabinets:

There’s a lot of updating that could be done in this house. But it does have a rustic, home-spun charm about it… Like granny’s house…

The listing description indicates there is an office area that could be a third bedroom…. hmmmm… now if only that price would come down a few digits…

Check out the complete listing for all the details.

    I know – it’s cute… but it’s been sitting on the market for about a year now, so the condition can’t be that good!
