As you meander up the stone pathway through the gardens to the inviting front porch, you will open the front door to the cozy living room and gourmet kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with first class commercial grade appliances, copper apron sink, Belgian copper cookware, and a large granite entertainment island. The cottage offers three uniquely themed queen bedrooms (unique is an understatement - you just have to see to believe!), one of which has a private bathroom, and the other two rooms share a roomy beautiful Jack-and-Jill style bathroom.
Step out back and enjoy a whimsical and creative 900 sq ft entertainment space that was thoughtfully crafted with many re-purposed elements from the original dwelling. Spring through Fall, enjoy the amazing gardens that surround the deck and house that include a wide variety of perennial plants that attract an abundance of fauna. As the sun sets and you move into the evening hours, experience the backyard's illuminated ambiance before retiring to a restful sleep.
