The Cozy Cottage: 273 Arlington Ave, Springfield OH
Todays "Cozy Cottage' is the period perfect largely unaltered (except for the painted woodwork) Craftsman cottage in Springfield Ohio.
We love the columns, the doors and the built-ins, more impressive is the period kitchen which is rare to find these days and other than a newer copper farm sink looks pretty much like the day it was built.
What the realtor says: This is an amazing home with loads of charm and history. Formally used as a Doctor's office possibly 50-60 years ago. Roof replaced 2006 or 09' Antique chandeliers original to home. There are pillars, hardwood floors, brass door knobs, large windows. Spacious dining room includes built in glass front credenza. Pocket doors w/beveled glass. Butler pantry w/swinging door, kitchen includes distinctive double copper sink, gas range, marble top kitchen cart, two pantries, original wide baseboards. Red tile kitchen floor! 19 x 21 rec room! Some original wall light sconces. Possible media room plus bedroom 2nd.
Priced at 130K we think this house offers great value for the money. More info: 273 Arlington
