Columbia cottage description

Known by locals as the Gingerbread House, Hansel and Gretel House, and Fairy Tale House, this 1400 square foot cottage started as a two room cabin built in the early 1900's. The cottage was built around the cabin in 1935, and has been impeccably maintained since. Craftsman woodwork is a major feature of this property. Beautiful gardens surrounding the cottage receive constant praise. This home, combined with updated furnishings that enhance the interior charm and comfort, will make you feel like you have taken a step into a storybook tale.
