Nostalgia Cottage


The screen door slams as a child dashes in one door then out the other.  Laughter echoes throughout the house as children play hide-‘n-seek on the lawn.  Adults sip iced tea in rockers on the wraparound porch.  A gingham cloth drapes picnic tables where lemonade and cakes tempt passersby.  Nostalgia Cottage has lived a rich social history where friends and community gathered annually for various occasions.  Built in 1908 by the well known Tanner family, she sits back from the road on approximately 3 acres.  Freshly painted white, with new roof and significant infrastructural updates, she is well on her way to renovation.  Her sturdy walls hold a history of warmth, love, and pride, obvious in the details of some of the original features still remaining — oak flooring cut from the neighboring Patton farm, original trim, and framework, plaster walls in the foyer, soaring 11-foot ceilings, 4 freshly painted bedrooms, and 2 baths.  The kitchen is all original and needs complete renovation, yet the space is large with a separate breakfast room. This property is a ready and waiting canvas within walking distance to shopping, dining, and medical facilities.  With some 2,200 square feet, she would make a wonderful home.
