About Kinnet Ehring
My husband, Chris amd I are originally from the Metropolitan NYC area. We retired to the Northern Neck of Virginia for the less rushed way of life. We knew we wanted to be in Irvington for its friendly community and hometown feel. We love it here and are happy to say that all of our neighbors are our friends. When not here, we spend time on Cape Cod.
Kinnet Ehring purchased this cottage in 2003
Why Kinnet Ehring chose Irvington
We loved this home the moment we pulled into the driveway and saw its large sunlit front porch. It was built in 1918 and has the charm that is only found in old homes. Over the years we have added on to it, but were diligent in retaining its integrity to remain true to the original design. We christened it Key Cottage because everyone said our house reminded them of houses they saw in Key West or The Bahamas. Our house is featured in “The Houses of Irvington: Architecture of an American Village” by architect Steven M. Reiss. Our house stands out from most vacation rentals because for 13 years we called it home. We’re a couple of old foodies, so our kitchen is well stocked with high end pots and pans, and any tool you could possibly imagine (I think we even have a cherry pitter in there somewhere!) and the decor and design was done by us with us in mind!
What makes this cottage unique
The foursquare layout offers a symmetry that we just fell in love with. The detailing of the front porch columns, the 10 foot ceilings and the transom windows are all testament to the careful workmanship of the house. Our stand of fig trees, planted the same year the house was built, is one of the finest in the County. The house is situated on a corner lot which offers more privacy. The evergreens and gardens, which, of course we have supplemented over the years, were a big draw as well. And then, of course, we're in Irvington, the best little town on the Northern Neck of Virginia!
