This quaint little country cabin is delightful throughout the year. A total of 1451 square feet of living space, plus an 8′ covered porch in the front and a 17’8″ x 6′ grilling porch in the back invites you out for a summer vacation. Most days are hot and humid at this time of year, feeling like a sauna outside- but that’s not enough to deter dad from preparing steaks on the grill. After all, what would summer be without cookouts…or barbecues depending on your place of origin? And how do you like your steak? Well done? Medium rare? In July, thunderstorms do their worst, but the rain cascades harmlessly down the pitched metal roof. Upstairs, the kids switch off the lights and fall asleep to the sound of the rain.
Two good-sized bedrooms and a full bathroom occupy the second level. Bedroom 2 measures 13’4″ x 14’6″, and bedroom 3 measures 11’4″ x 14’5″. Each room has a dormer window for a view of the front yard and a side window to aid the “lookouts” when they are tasked by the “general” to guard the “fort.”
For three weeks in April, bright pink azaleas bloom around this quaint cottage, and a bright red hummingbird feeder hangs from the eave of the front porch, rocking in the breeze. The boys can impress mom with a bouquet of dandelions, and dad can thrill her with his landscaping capabilities. More than any other time of year, living
and playing and entertaining take place in the outdoors. The air conditioner is given respite, the windows are opened wide, and the roof yellows with pollen.
Though you love the outdoors, moving back inside in the fall and winter is not at all disappointing with a beautiful stone fireplace casting dancing light into the den on a chilly night. The den space is open to the dining area and separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar, and the French doors have 12 glass panes on each side to admit plenty of light. Handsome hardwood floors seamlessly tie the living space together and match the kitchen cabinets. Marble counter tops add a a rich touch to country-style living.
The downstairs bedroom measures 11’4″ x 11′ and features a walk-in closet. The full bath doubles as a guest bathroom, and a stacked washer and dryer fits into a niche in the hallway. Additional closet space is located off the dining room, and equipment can be kept in the storage room off the back porch.
