A Small Cottage For Sale In The Neighborhood

Do you ever drive around your neighborhood and look at houses?  Sometimes I do as I like to see how other people landscape their gardens. When it’s a beautiful day and I don’t want to stay inside, then seeing  the blue skies and green grass makes me happy.  This small home a few blocks from me has a similar layout as mine. I do love the garden and small cottage look.





I’d also love to have a palm tree in my yard.  This poor palm has been cut back too much.  A healthy palm needs the fronds and a severe trim is not good.





The walkway to the front door is charming.




The screen door is probably original to the home. I hope whoever buys the home loves it as much as I do.  You can’t buy one like that.




Even the backyard is attractive.





Thanks for visiting this cottage with me.  We all need to get outside even when we are trying to avoid people. Have a bright, sunny day!

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. My hubby and I are looking for a small cottage just like this one. We are ready to downsize to a smaller house with a smaller yard! Thanks for showing us this cute house.

    1. I did that about 10 years ago and I love my little house. When it comes to cleaning, smaller is better.

  2. I thought I only did this. I also drive in different neighborhoods. I am glad to see that, I am not alone.

    1. No, I have enjoyed a drive on a pretty day looking at houses for decades. I’ve also walked the neighborhood for exercise and I love seeing what someone else has done with a yard size similar to mine. Cheap fun.

  3. This is exactly what a dream-house looks like to me. A small cottage in the middle of a big lawn with beautiful flowers. Hope I can have one someday 🙂


  4. Carol – I could not live in Florida – too warm for me – but I love the look of this little cottage with its manicured lawn. You’re right – that screen door is a keeper! We are a long way from green around here, so I gazed jealously at all that green in your photos! Thanks for linking up to Mosaic Monday, and stay well!

    1. You know Angie I often see beautiful winter scenes on other blogs which is really the only way I want to experience them. That’s why there are so many flavors of ice cream in the world – we’re all unique. Have a great week.

  5. Hello, it is a pretty home, the landascaping looks lovely too. The screen door is cute. Take care and be well. Wishing you a happy new week!

  6. I’m sold by the big lot and the front porch. If I bought the house, I’d turn the front lawn into a jungle of flowers, plants, and trees. 🙂 Take care out there.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
