Location: Charlottesville, Virginia
An adorable bungalow whose charm cannot be overstated, this three-bedroom in Charlottesville, Virginia, has so much to offer within its 1,581-square-foot space. Dating back to 1928 and carefully renovated since then, the cottage offers an abundance of period millwork and trim, built-in bookshelves, cabinetry, and other hidden surprises that make the cozy home fully functional.
A large porch sets the stage, and past the front door, a sitting room with brick fireplace greets you on one side, with a moody den painted in a dark emerald found on the other side. From the living area flows a formal dining room characterized by coffer ceilings, wainscoting, wallpaper design, a built-in china cabinet, as well as a hidden bar.
Adjacent to that is a most delightful farmhouse-esque kitchen with beautiful tiling efficiently arranged to accommodate a Viking stove, commercial glass-fronted refrigerator, and dishwasher. Custom cabinetry, shelving, and under-ceiling storage plus a mini butler’s complete this space.
A hallway with hand-painted wallpaper leads to two of the three bedrooms, which are sweet in their own right, with details like a coffered ceiling in one of them and doors with transom windows. The attic space is now a suite, with a nook for the bed, built in desk, window seat, and corner fireplace. Each of the two full bathrooms feature clawfoot tubs.
Outside on the double lot is room for gardens and more, and there’s even a detached studio with plumbing and electricity out back. Located at 1101 Calhoun Street in the heart of town, the property is offered at $725,000.
