Park on the street in front of this quaint 1922 Arts & Crafts cottage with brown shingles and white trim, climb a few steps to the elevated, covered front porch, open the door and prepare to be impressed when you step inside. Compact and comfortable, the home blends the past and present in a livable, beautifully designed interior.
The living room features painted tongue-and-groove walls, a brick fireplace (gas) with a brick hearth flanked by built-in bookshelves with glass doors, a TV hookup over the wood mantel, and French doors opening to the dining/kitchen area. To the left of the living room, the den/office has a crystal chandelier, built-in cabinetry and 3 windows with blinds.
The dining room has striped wallpaper reminiscent of Dorothy Draper’s interior at the nearby Greenbrier and an elegant crystal chandelier. The open-plan dining-kitchen area is divided by a granite counter that seats 3-4 people.
Kitchen features include granite counters, display shelves, a stainless steel farmhouse sink with a disposal, a GE 5-burner gas range, an LG stainless steel refrigerator with a freezer drawer, a Bosch dishwasher, a Sharp microwave oven, and a convenient pantry/storage closet.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms and one bath, accessed from the hallway. Bedroom One has two closets, two curtained windows and an 8-foot cushioned window seat, and a brass chandelier. Bedroom Two has one closet and a hand-painted porcelain chandelier, and three windows with blinds. The bathroom, which has tongue-and-groove paneling, has a walk-in ceramic tile shower with a built-in seat, and a cultured marble double vanity.
The cottage has attractive oak flooring, and the living room and both bedrooms have hookups for wall-mounted TVs.
The basement is accessed from the kitchen, and the attic can be accessed by a pull-down ladder in the hallway. The unfinished basement is a utility area with a laundry room with Whirlpool appliances, and a separate work space with built-in workbench and shelves.
The home is heated and cooled by a Lennox heat pump, and protected by a Honeywell home security alarm.
The house is beautifully landscaped with roses, and the back yard is partly fenced.
Exceptionally well-designed with many special touches, this downtown White Sulphur Springs cottage is an ideal easy-to-maintain small residence.
