Welcome home to this charming freedman's cottage built in the early 1900's in an area of the peninsula once known as Hope Place. According to the cottage's history, it is among 4 residences built by a woman who rented the properties out. Flowers once grown in the garden of the cottage's large backyard were sold at the City Market. Over the years, this cottage has been restored and improved upon by each of its owners. The beautiful heart pine floors are from re-milled timbers that once were part of a cotton mill. The reclaimed heart pine floors have been refinished and all of the walls were reconstructed using wood found there or elsewhere in the house. The kitchen, which at one time was actually the back porch, is truly the showpiece of this historic property. The kitchen features custom-built cherry cabinets, made by a local cabinet maker and are designed to look like furniture, a nod to the period in which the house was built. The cabinets are dyed, not painted, leaving the grains exposed and the counters are made of butcher block. A 4-burner gas stove and stainless steel fridge also grace the kitchen. The main living area is bright and sunny and the many windows allow much natural light to flow through. The bathroom features a claw foot tub with the modern convenience of a rain shower head, as well as a hand held device. Original reclaimed doors and antique hardware clan be found throughout the cottage. There are ceiling fans in both bedrooms, as well as in the main living area and bamboo flooring can be found in the front bedroom. A new HVAC was installed in 2008, along with a tankless water heater and low flow toilets. Did I mention the off street parking and large backyard with fire pit and plenty of room to garden or entertain? There is also a 7.5' by 9" shed for all of your outdoor storage needs!!
