On three magical acres landscaped with weeping willow trees and enchanting gardens, this Cotswold-style cottage isn’t set in the rolling hills of rural England but in Greenwich, CT, less than an hour from New York City. Cotswold cottages are famous for their stone-clad beauty, and this one on Connecticut’s gold coast, asking $1.195 million, is no exception.
This understated-yet-cool custom-crafted retreat, on the market for $395,000, isn’t your average lakeside cottage. Built in 1965, the A-frame house at 39 Shore Road in the Columbia County hamlet of Ancram, N.Y. marries thorough modern renovations (central air, radiant heat, generator, washer/dryer, thermopane windows) and considered design for a completely unique hideaway.
Perched on a Staten Island hillside with stunning bay views, this cute country cottage is only $739K, Wed, April 12, 2017
This single-family home in a storybook hillside setting with some of Staten Island‘s most attractive property below and Raritan Bay and the Atlantic Highlands beyond is a testament to the island’s diversity of places. Built by an artist who made sure the home’s windows were positioned to take advantage of the natural light, the crimson cottage at 298 Lighthouse Avenue, whose listing calls it a “Hansel & Gretel gingerbread home,” sits on a half-acre lot, sharing Lighthouse Hill with the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art (h/t Curbed). So much uniqueness comes at the relatively surprising price of $739,500.
