    She’s just a little tired but it won’t take much to perk her up. This is a great older home for a young single or couple just starting off or someone ready to downsize. Instant charm with what appears to be minimal alteration, except maybe electric, plumbing, and HVAC. But at such a low price and a small footprint, that shouldn’t be a problem here. Street view shows a nice neighborhood, too. Just darling.

    This is exactly what I need. A cute little cottage to fix up!

    I’m with Sharon. No updating needed. Some elbow grease, a few choice additions to the bathroom (a period wall hung sink, a tile floor) and the kitchen (a bit of additional counter/cab, etc) and a bit of paint and bob’s your uncle!

    This house totally reminds me of this one explained by Eric/Architectural Observer. Would it be the same model? http://architecturalobserver.com/the-cabot-by-gordon-van-tine/ The fireplace chimneys and overview from Google satellite view differ from the Cabot shown above. Eric, if you see this post, I’d love your hawk-eyed analysis on this one!

      I was thinking it might be a kit as well. There were multiple manufacturers who made one like this.

      The house above does look a lot like the Cabot, but I don’t think it is one. It’s probably a knock-off by another kit house manufacturer or perhaps built from a plan book. The Gordon Van-Tine / Wardway designs which were similar to this one all had the fireplace (when included as an option) located on the exterior end wall of the living room; the fireplace in the house above is located on an interior wall. There are a few other differences in the floor plan as well. This type of “Colonial Bungalow” was extremely popular and similar versions were created by many designers and builders; I’m guessing that this house is one of them!
