With all the scary stuff going on in the world, how about a little mindless house-candy?

This sparkling jewel in Medford, Oregon is astonishing. I say that because my eyeballs about popped out of their sockets when I saw the photos.

It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Shone-Charley House, but more lovingly referred to as Waverly Cottage.

The cottage is currently used as a Bed & Breakfast but it is also for sale for $349,000.

Dating back to 1898, this Victorian has been restored within an inch of its life. Gutted, replastered, new foundation, heating, plumbing, electrical, windows, roof, gutters, paint; you name it, she’s had the work done.

It’s all so perfect… except for the box of Special K in the center. But we’ll look past that detail. (Kellogg’s was around back then, right?)

This lovely abode is on the small side: two bedrooms and one bathroom in 1,012 square feet.

Two features to note in the backyard…

  1. A $70,000 custom-made rod iron fence:

    Adorable! I am a wanderer too. My family know the signs and take themselves off for a long lunch. I cry in buildings just from the sheer awesomeness.

    Just the name Waverly captures my attention and then to see this wonder, well I just love it from head to toe, especially the architecture and colors. This is me giving it a {{Hug}}

    Although the box in the photo appears to be modern; Kellogg received the patent for cornflakes in 1896. Cornflakes were commercially available in the early years of the 20th century.
