San Roque cottage description

You walk through a hand-crafted gate, down a long stone path, through an apple arbor, past a koi pond, through a gate and arrive at your own private deck shaded by oak trees and comfortable with a hammock, dining area & lounge. Apricots, grapes, figs and plums (in season) all within reach. You open French doors, enter the cottage where you first see the Queen-sized bed under stained-glass windows that looks out into a succulent garden. Panning the room, you take in the comfy couch which faces paned windows looking out onto the garden, a flat-screen TV and art created by friends of ours. You tuck your belongings away in the walk-in closet and go pour yourself a glass of wine in the fully equipped kitchen with honed black granite counter tops and handmade beach stone drawer pulls. With music playing on the stereo, you draw yourself a bath in the claw-foot tub, or head out onto the deck and relax in the hammock, or lounge, or you cuddle up in bed and admire the open, zen-like space.

              A CONFUSING NOTE -- the marker doesn't actually point to the cottage, it points to our mailbox which is more than 1/10th of a mile away from the cottage. And to further confuse things, the lane that our home is on is unnamed and not on the map, but if you draw an imaginary line from the mailbox, perfectly perpendicular to Hope Avenue, all the way to the blue line (which is the creek below the cottage) that's where the cottage sits. Our home is slightly above it, about 150 feet away.
