House Crush N°21

IIt’s house crush day again. This little Charmer is not so little at all. Though it appears to be a simple shingled cottage, the home also has a rear addition that triples its size. Don’t you just love it when renovations keep the original charm of the home and the functional additions are hidden. The positioning of this cottage high on a hill and slightly off center is visually pleasing and welcoming. Have a wonderful weekend!

      I love everything about this little charmer—inside is amazing. Two ranges are in the kitchen and one of them is a red Aga!

    Yes I do love it when the original charm is preserved, Lissy, and love you for advocating it! I also like the unassuming approach at the front and the surprise and the back. It’s so much less in your face and that makes it nicer somewhow.

      Frances, I love the charm in the front—surprise in the back so much. Why destroy the original charm you were drawn too!
