September 26, 2019

Love this little cottage! It is like a fairytale! Those stairs though! Thankfully they only appear to lead to the loft. This home was built in 1940. It is located in Charlottesville, Virginia. I love that dutch door and the wood shutters. New standing seam metal roof, hardwood floors, and exposed beams adorn this home. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,341 square feet. $414,900
