A Craftsman Style Cottage
Tucked away above the Virginia Creeper Trail, you’ll find an elegant little cottage filled with eclectic and antique furnishings, just awaiting your arrival. Upon entering the front door, you are greeted by a beautiful marble, gas-log fireplace topped by a Vermont stone mantle. Complimenting the fireplace on either side, are handsome handmade twin cabinets hiding the HD flat screen television in the entertainment center.
The stunning architectural archway, salvaged from an 1800’s home in local Abingdon, divides the living and dining areas. Throughout the cottage, you will find paintings done by local artists.
The kitchen, with its granite countertop and glass-fronted, handmade cherry cabinets, invites you to whip up that new recipe that you have been wanting to try. (Be sure to check out the basket-weave backsplash made from cherry to match the cabinets. Each piece is intricately woven into the next.) A whimsical Betty Boop cookie jar sits atop the cabinets. The open sun-filled dining area, with it’s brightly stripped wicker couch, invites you to sit and converse with the “chef”!
Or on a warm evening, enjoy your meal by dining al fresco on the rose laden stone patio located just outside the French door. Here you’ll find a charcoal grill ready for your use.
The downstairs toile linen bedroom has, a queen-size bed, its own bath with a heated tile floor and walk in shower.
Wind your way up the wooden staircase, here you’ll find a quiet sitting area that is the perfect spot for curling up with a good book on a rainy afternoon.
The master bedroom, with its antique furniture and oriental rug, is decorated in refreshing blues, yellows and greens, making it a cozy romantic hideaway. The master bath has a 7 foot Jacuzzi, white marble heated floor and an antique dresser full fluffy towels and accessories. It also has a large marble walk-in shower.
The iron glider, circa 1940, on the front porch affords you a great view, and on a clear day you can see the Appalachian Mountains in the distance.
