Charming Stone Cottage

It was fun virtually shopping for a mansion last week, but I have something even better this time.

A gorgeous home someone may actually be able to afford!

To be fair, at $757,400 (weird asking price, right?) it's still fairly steep. But with a carriage house (I'll admit I'm not entirely sure what this is) and 137 acres (holy moly!), think of it as only $5,528 per acre with a free house (and carriage house!) thrown in. Besides, it's not like anyone actually pays the full asking price. By the time you negotiate this thing down, it would be foolish not to buy it.

Yeah, I can pretty much find a way to justify anything I want to buy.

(oooh, fancy)

On a side note, I'd actually intended to search Perth, Australia, which is where I'm from and where many of my family members still live. The Sotheby's website had other plans.







If money weren't a factor, is this a house you'd like to call home? I've also found a dreamy cottage in Connecticut that's looking for an owner. If I had to choose between the two homes, I would go with...errr...I'd choose...oh, wait. Money isn't a factor, remember? Summer home and weekend getaway!
