One of my favourite places in the world is our cottage.  It’s old and rickety, decorated in the style of… well, in no style really.  There is no dishwasher, no internet and we get 3 TV channels on a good day.  It’s as comfortable as an old shoe.  And when I really think about it, that’s what is so perfect about it.  We can wear our old shoes because nobody worries about the carpet.

Today, most people seem to have a different vision of a cottage.  They want to come and relax yes but, they want all the comforts of home right down to hi-speed internet access, big screen TV’s, full municipal services, gas fireplace, recessed pot lights, granite counters and such.  Cottages have become more second homes than casual get aways, haven’t they?

I recently listed an older chalet in Craigleith that sits on a beautiful big lot on a quiet, dead-end street surrounded by beautiful tall trees.  It’s just a hop onto the trail or to the Beach and an easy drive or cycle into Town or the mountain.  It reminds me of a cottage although with six bedrooms and lots of bathrooms, I suppose it is halfway between a cottage and a house.  At a price that is much more affordable than some of the newer offerings we see today, whomever buys this will surely create comfortable memories of happy days at the cottage.
