This photo of our cottage was taken this morning. Last summer while we were painting the exterior falu red I envisioned how our home would appear nestled in winter's snow. All these months later I am not disappointed.
Forgive me for shamelessly beginning today's edition of Living Large In Small Spaces this way, but I wanted to share my joy with you -- my friends. Seeing dreams come to life is a wonderful gift, and I thank God for ours.
Now on to our featured home in France. I chose this small space for its wonderful character and the fact that it's decorated for Christmas. What can I say? The Christmas spirit has a hold of me in a big way.
This home is listed for sale at Rightmove.Co.UK.com.
The front door of this two bedroom, one bath home opens directly into the living room.
The living room opens into a dining area with aged terracotta floor tiles, a ceiling with painted beams and an original old cupboard.
Double glazed French windows open onto the delightful courtyard.
Unfortunately, there are no photos of the kitchen, which is stated to be right off the living room and has a window that overlooks the courtyard.
This old original cupboard is wonderful with all the dishes and glassware.
The bathroom floor is tiled with old terracotta tiles.
Bedroom 1 features a large tuffeau stone fireplace, two original cupboards and natural finished ceiling beams.
More terra cotta floor tiles.
The second bedroom, which is accessed by stairs from the first bedroom, is not shown.
I hope you enjoyed this home in Loire Valley, France.
This is the last edition of Living Large In Small Spaces in 2015. I'll be taking a blogging break to enjoy Christmas and New Years with my beloved Dennis.
I'll be back in 2016 with more Living Large In Small Spaces.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
to all of you.
May all the blessings of the season be yours.
