Walking up to the Fireside Cottage, one is immediately reminded of a simpler era. The house has features that could have come straight from the English countryside of the eighteenth or nineteenth century. It is truly a storybook house, in appearance, yet designed inside for today's comfortable lifestyles. Its massive, ornate brick chimney with herringbone brick in-fill and half-timbered gabled facade are tucked inside a courtyard that would be the perfect setting for an English garden. Exposed rafter tails and other traditional detailing add character and scale.
Upon entry, one is greeted by a open, circular stair, and a step down to a surprisingly large, open great room with, vaulted, beamed ceiling, and fireplace flanked by tall windows. The opposite end of the room features a large, curved window to allow for expansive views to the outside. A small, walled terrace is accessed through two sets of French doors on one side. A cozy study off the front hall, behind the circular stair has its own fireplace and full bath, making it perfect for an overnight guest or a fourth bedroom!
An open, modern kitchen and eating area overlooks the great room and dining and has access to a large terrace behind. The large master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and bath with tub and large shower are easily accessible to the living area yet private with French doors that open directly to the terrace. A laundry, pantry and half bath are all within reach.
