A Cottage Tour

Shan's Cottage

Today, I'd like to take you on a tour of this charming cottage belonging to my sister and her husband. Why? You ask. Let me tell you. It is on the market. Yes, Shannon and Ben are selling their beloved little home. You want it, don't you? (ETA: The house is in Lebanon, Oregon. Click on the link for the real estate listing.) Let's go inside and take a look around...

It's every bit as lovely as I knew it would be!!

That is just lovely. Oh my goodness, I am green with envy...don't get me wrong, I love our new house, I just want to create that look inside my house. I'm just so not good at that. I wish I could take all her stuff and stick it in my home! LOL. Why are they selling? IT's just so darn cute!

Ah, Heidi, if you only knew what salve to my soul it would be if such a cottage was at my disposal. I am so weary of struggling just to keep the barn over *there* and not in *here*. Weary of...oh, good grief. This is the comment section of your blog, not your shoulder! Pardon me.

What a charming place! If I were only in the area:)

I posted today on favorite homeschool resources. I'd love to get your feedback on that if you get a chance to drop by. Thanks!

Where is this beautiful home. If in South CA definitely interested! Seriously...

Heidi said...

The home is in Lebanon, OR. Yes, they are moving locally. :)

Renee said...

Oh how darling. I live clear across the country, or I might drop everything and jump at the chance to move. How is there so much creativity in one family?

If you can ship it to Canada, I'll take it!!

Through the pictures, it radiates peace, tranquility, warmth and love! I am green with envy, not of the house but of the talent to put it together like that!

Visiting from Hearth Management!

Heidi, How enjoyable to see Shannon's and Ben's house so well displayed. No wonder they've had a number of showings already. We hope and anticipate it will sell soon and pray to that end.

Also, thanks to Russ for all his help to Cheri. Her posts are already better and faster.

Love, Grandpa

Oh, for pity's sake. Don't do that! Really! It's hard enough to see such a beautiful cottage and know it's not mine, but then to actually be in the market and know I can't have it. I need a house in Albany, though we have looked in Lebanon. It's just not easy to see such things.

My husband is a real estate agent. He tells me that houses show better when they're well-furnished. This one is really well done! Her decorating plus your photography makes it look like a magazine spread and not a house listing!

All (okay, I believe it's currently 98%) the houses here are foreclosures. My husband sells empty houses.

And that much grass in the front yard is highly discouraged/illegal in some places in town here (depending on what year your house was built!)

Charming cottage and lovely photos! My oldest really loves how pretty it looks!

Nicole said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm having fun looking around yours- love your photography and your sister's cottage is ADORABLE!

It is completely charming in every way. Yes, I do want it! :) I hope a new owner falls in love with it soon.

Only 11 days on the market! I guess someone saw potential. Thank you for the comments everyone.
