The “Red Cottage” was built in 1938 along the shores of the Potomac River. Located on .58 acres in Kinsale, Virginia. I love the little guest cottage on the property! It has one bedroom, one bathroom, and a kitchenette. Love those bead board ceilings! This house has been maintained really well! There is an expansive screened in porch on the back of the home. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 1,571 square feet. $795,000

From the Zillow listing:


The Red Cottage, a picturesque home fronting the Potomac River, is the ideal getaway. 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths await in the main house, while a guest house offers an additional bedroom and bathroom. The home captures the spirit of country living while offering every convenience. Relax on the private sand beach, watch a breathtaking sunrise over the river, or enjoy a meal on the expansive screened porch.
