House Crush N°49—J. Elliott Style

J. Elliott house
Porch crush—my favorite spot.

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 also own J. Elliott Style in Highlands, N.C.. Stone, poplar bark, cedar shakes and window boxes—yes, please! I know this renovation was a labor of love with all of the attention to details…they nailed it! Faux windows and shutters add symmetry and visual interest to the cottage entrance. The addition of window boxes filled to the brim with greenery softens all of the stone and links the house to the mountain greenery surrounding it. This porch would be my favorite spot to start or finish the day. Have a look around…the inside renovations are coming soon.
