Enchanted Cottage

Enchanting is how I’ve often described this white clapboard cottage and its lovely naturalized gardens.  Once nurtured by someone with a nice touch, loving hands and a gift for gardening, the house and yard rest empty now.  Still charming, it seems to slowly sink into the ground, becoming one with its own sweet surroundings. 


  • Laura, I’ve always adored this house, and you’re right it’s still so pretty even though untended. Hoping someone will fall in love and save it!!




    • I am honored by such a nice compliment!

      You should have seen how nervous I was taking that picture….I knew the house was long empty, but all I could think of was that someone was going to rip that door open scare me to death!!


  • Everybody is right about this one. I can imagine your trepidation. The “cross” vine may be an ever so benign a warning. Your portrait of her has such a sweet, nostalgic softness about it. I see many of these homes in the old neighborhood where Boy’s school is located. Some of them have been beautifully restored with well-tended gardens containing all of the old landscape features and plants. I like that. No attempt is being made to modernize them. Young people are buying them. I see them in the yards. It makes me feel good to see this.
