What we love about this property

What's not to love? For starters, the price. Under $115k is amazing for the condition of this historic home and the amount of manicured gardens. Plus, it has at least three outbuildings that can be made into guest quarters or income potential. It's surrounded by forest land and near several lakes. It's move-in ready and oozes with character (wood burner, curved staircase, & windows galore!). The finishes are simple, neutral and stylish (The power of white paint!). And that balcony off the main bedroom has me swooning.

Somebody snatch this one up so I can come visit, please.

Obsessed with the light & airy interior

The interior of the cottage is indicative of the traditional Scandinavian design aesthetic - white on white on white, making it feel open and spacious (despite a modest footprint and ceiling height).
