This gem of a cottage is priced right for visionary house hunters looking to renovate on the North Shore. From the street, the boxy exterior has bay windows shingle siding. The entrance leads to a rustic sunroom with plank flooring and storage space. Inside, dated wallpaper abounds, but rounded door frames with art-deco style trim could be beautifully reimagined. A dining room, living room, kitchen, and study make up the first floor layout, while the bedrooms are located on the second level. Although overgrown, the small lot has room for a patio and garden. The property is on the western end of town, in walking distance of Stage Fort Park and Half Moon Beach.
