Interior highlights of this well-priced $1.15m cottage include an elegant custom-built kitchen featuring high-end granite countertops and a large island with cooking hob and stool seating. State-of-the-art appliances are built into the custom cabinets, and the grey-tiled backsplash is an attractive touch.

Adjoining the kitchen is a sizable dining area and ample living space for friends and family to relax in and socialize. While the pine walls and ceilings already conjure up an authentic cottage country feel, this effect is heightened by the inclusion of an attractive high-efficiency woodburning stone fireplace. An added benefit of this feature, of course, is that the inset fireplace can also be used as a source of heat for the cottage, enhancing its already energy efficient heating system.
