February 24, 2019

This cinderblock cottage was designed by famed architect firm Collins and Sons. Built in 1935 in Staunton, Virginia. Exposed beams, window seats and beautiful hardwood floors adorn this home. I kind of like the red bathroom with that gorgeous original sink! The home has a new HVAC mini split system. There is a fenced in backyard with nice landscaping. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,016 square feet. $279,000

From the Zillow listing:


Charming cinder block cottage designed for famed local architecture firm, Collins & Sons. Every inch of this property has something special and unique, from the floors to the window seats, to the beautiful beams throughout the living spaces. This home is truly one-of-a-kind. The current owners have updated throughout, and recently had the entire property professionally landscaped. Brand new HVAC system including 2 mini splits in addition to the main system will keep this home efficiently heated/cooled. Fenced in back yard is a plus! The neighborhood is truly lovely, and it is set among other beautiful homes. Entertaining all offers, owners motivated! 3 cars can park up front, more along Windsor Rd.
