By default, we're skeptical of the word "cozy" in listing rhetoric, particularly when it's used to describe anything in the range of 1,600 square feet. But in this case it actually seems like a just description. Here now, a 1930 cottage with one bedroom, one bathroom, and lots of romantic details proudly touted in the brokerbabble: "a wood-burning stove & arched doorways, the abundant light filling the front sunroom, and the unique design & color scheme on windows, trim, flooring & doors." As far as cottages go, there's also the requisite red siding, hardwood floors, and picket fence framing the quarter-acre plot. The property is located not far from downtown Bloomington, Ind., home to the notoriously beautiful campus of Indiana University. All this old-timey charm is asking $94,500, with estimated mortgage payments of less than $400 a month.
