Blacksmith shop built in 1855 and converted to lovely 1100 square foot cottage with open, hand-axed beams and decorated in rustic style. Full kitchen, bath, queen bed bedroom loft and large great room with tv area, wood stove and two queen beds. Detached and very private. Plenty of off-street parking. No parties and no smoking!!! Ping pong table has given way to two queen beds in the main room but we just love the picture and can't duplicate that shot with our crappy cellphone cameras!
Be inspired by rooms that flow together like a private exhibition space for the creations of Tommy Urbans. The house is open and airy, a great way to get your zen on. Spend a cozy evening in front of a gas fire and have nightcaps on the front porch.
