Lovingly hand restored every detail of this proud home. The home is quaint and old fashioned with wall paper, wood floors, all the original wood trim and doors with fancy knobs.
The living room and dining room have the old original oak flooring and 9 foot ceilings. There are gorgeous historical looking fancy ball spandrels, crossing the room openings. There is a Jotul wood stove in the living room.
The dining room has a charming bay window.
The kitchen has an added-on witches hat, old looking tin ceilings, old kitchen sink and beautiful tile work and cabinets. The charming red fridge is included in the sale. The antique stove/range is negotiable. The kitchen has an attached year-around sunroom with light pouring into the kitchen and lots of plants and flowers growing. The kitchen and sunroom have in-floor heat under the tiles.
There are two bathrooms, one on each level. The downstairs bathroom has a wonderful old claw foot tub with brass shower and tiled floor.
There are three bedrooms, one on the main floor and two on the upper level. All the bedrooms have their own closets.
The bathroom upstairs has a very large antique claw foot tub with brass hand shower parts, tiled floor and pedestal sink.
The partial basement has the laundry, storage and playroom.
There is a 370 sq.ft workshop built to match the house, even the doors are handmade. There is power in the building, built-in cabinets and storage in the attic.
The outside of the Rose Cottage is decorated in lots of colorful shingles of her day, full gingerbread trim and huge spandrel arches on the peaks of the roofs. The cedar old-fashioned porch has a colorful hand painted shingled witches hat, a touch of the past.
The garden is something else. A picket fence is around the property. There are fruit trees, shade trees and amazing flowers everywhere you look. Especially beautiful is the rose covered arbor. The water fountain draws in the birds and is surrounded by bricked vegetable beds. There are two sprinkler systems for the yard. The gazebo with table and chairs are included in the sale, so is the covered carport.
The three antique front windows were saved in the living room for added charm. The other windows are updated double pane. The house has blown-in insulation. Most of the electric is updated and the plumbing is updated including a new water line from the house to the street. The exterior wood has six coats of paint. The oil furnace is newer and there is also air-conditioning. The roof is a 50 year composite.
Listen to the church bells ring across town and the children laughing in the school yard across the street. The Rose Cottage sits on a large corner lot with beautiful views of the Wallowa Mountains.
