House Crush—N°69

Those boxwoods!

It’s all about the charm with this House Crush. Nestled into the side of a mountain this cottage is almost totally hidden from view. The owners and renovators of this beautiful home have done a wonderful job of preserving the Old Highlands charm. Stone, cedar shakes, lush gardens and a plethora of porches—yes, please! I know this renovation was a labor of love with all of the attention to details…and they nailed it! White shutters, boxwoods and white trim add symmetry and visual interest to the cottage entrance. The addition of flower gardens filled to the brim with soft colors and greenery softens all of the stone and links the house to the mountain greenery surrounding it. Any of the six porches would be my favorite spot to start or finish the day. Have a look around…I would love to have a look inside!
