Property description

A Craftsman Style Cottage, ideally located on the Virginia Creeper Trail and in Historic Abingdon, is an elegant Cottage filled with eclectic and antique furnishings. Entering the Cottage you are greeted by a beautiful marble gas-log fireplace topped by a Vermont stone mantle. Complimenting the fireplace are handsome, twin handmade cabinets hiding the HD television.
The stunning, architectural archway , salvaged from a local 1800's house, divides the living and dining areas. The kitchen with its granite countertop and handmade, cherry glass-front cabinets, invites you to whip up your favorite pasta recipe. Be sure to check the intriquely woven cherry backsplash that matches the cabinets. A whimsical Betty Boop cookie jar sits on a shelf. The open sun-filled dining area, with its brightly striped wicker couch, invites you to sit and talk to the 'chef'.
On a warm evening, you can enjoy your meal by dining al fresco on the outdoor patio.
The downstairs toile linen bedroom with a queen size bed has its own bath with a tile walk-in shower and heated ceramic floor.
Wind your way up the stairs, to a quiet sitting area that is a perfect spot to curl up on a rainy day with one of the good books available.
The master suite, filled with antique furniture and an Oriental rug, is decorated in refreshing blues, yellows and greens, making it a cozy romantic hideaway. The master bath has a 7 foot Jacuzzi as well as a marble heated floor and marble walk-in shower. An antique dresser is filled with accessories and fluffly, soft towels.
The iron glider on the front porch affords a great view of the Applachian Mountains in the distance and overlooks the Creeper Trail.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Bill and I started this Cottage in 2007. When we bought it, it was a wood frame house sitting on dirt with 7' ceilings and moldy paneling. Bill stripped it down to the frame, added additional rooms and raised the ceilings. We rewired, replumbed and reroofed and everything else that goes with rebuiding a house! And we both have full-time careers! Bill is a class A contractor and had a wonderful vision of what this was going to look like! Me, kept seeing $ signs and hearing ka-ching every time we went to Lowes. And we finally finished and furnished it this year! Hooray!!

Why the Owner Chose Abingdon:
We bought this property the same time we bought 344 Gibson Street. We love the Virginia Creeper Trail, Abingdon and the Barter Theatre. We want everyone who comes to visit , to think about what a great place this is and consider moving here. The weather has 4 seasons which are relatively mild and there is a lot to do here all year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I love the heated bathroom floors. They are to die for even in the summer! We have entertained friends here for dinner. It is perfect with the couch and kitchen chairs for everyone to sit and socialize while we were cooking. The couch is very comfy. I curled up with an afghan on an ugly snowy day with the fireplace on and fell asleep!
