A Storybook Cottage

I came across this home in our local real estate listings and I instantly became smitten. It easily reminds me of a home out of a storybook. It's a 1922 English cottage with lush gardens a rear courtyard. I wouldn't mind writing our own family story here.





The updated kitchen is such a dream of mine and reminds me of this one that I have adored for years now.




The bedroom with a wall of curtains in the master...


easily feels like the one from Cottage Living that also houses that same kitchen. Makes me wonder if the owners were inspired by the latter home or could it be the same designer. Either way I am thinking this home would make a great stocking stuffer.



*If you are interested in either home email me and I will be more than happy to get you in touch with the listing agent, well that's if my Mr. says it won't fit in my stocking of course.
