Thursday Home Tour ~ It Could Be Yours!

Friday, October 14, 2016

I can't wait to share this tour with you today!

This cottage is located in historic Abingdon, VA, a quaint town offering historic sites, festivals, arts and culture, great music, the home of the world famous Barter Theatre, antique shops, and more outdoor adventure than you could shake a stick at.

The heavily wooded lot is over an acre with frontage on Holston Lake.  This cottage, currently being used as a vacation home,  has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom and 1,582 square feet of living space.  Though small, it is full of charm, with extra sleeping areas tucked here and there.  (Small, that is, as a full-time residence for a family with children.)

Let's start the tour with the gorgeous water front view.

To the left of the cottage is an open porch and to the right is a very large attached screened in porch.
When I first found this property I thought it was little nondescript, but just wait!

Well hello charming!

This lakeside cottage is so warm and inviting with an exposed beam ceiling, wood flooring and brick fireplace.  The antiques, quilts and handcrafted items add even more character and charm.

The ladder to the right of the fireplace leads to a sleeping loft for children.

The right side of the room includes an armoire and single bed dressed with comfy bedding for guests to snuggle in for the night.

The kitchen is adorable!
The cabinets are from an old drugstore, galvanized tubs at the sink and there is a large pantry for extra storage.

The master bedroom and full bath.

The open porch is just outside the sliding glass doors.

The screened porch; look at the size of that dining table...seating for 10!

A sleeping porch; this area offers another place to sleep or just a relaxing afternoon nap.

This sweet cottage is available through Sotheby's for $295,000.

Hope you enjoyed the tour; wouldn't this be a great vacation home?

  1. What a sweet, sweet place, Cindy. I think it lives a lot bigger than its square footage. I think it is a really cute place-quaint and livable. xo Diana

  2. Cindy, what a quaint cottage and yes it would be a lovely vacation home! Pam @ Everyday Living

  3. I guess someone that's used to something massive might consider this small, but it's not small at all to me. And it's way beyond livable for everyday, not just as a vacation home. I love it!

    1. I love it too! It's small with regards to being a primary residence for a family with children due to only one bedroom and one bath.

  4. Such a gorgeous home! I am so ready to move in ♥

  5. Hi Cindy! What a comfy looking place and it is lovely! Thank you for sharing and I hope you're all well now.
