A gardener's delight is what you will find in this mid-century, cottage-style home! Located in the heart of downtown Cortland, this home is surrounded by beautiful flowers. The front entrance is adorned by nature and the porch is full of flowers, including climbing rose bushes. What a treat to come home to. The living room has two picturesque windows that allow one to view the beautiful front and side garden settings. Wood laminate flooring, a fan, and an open concept to the eating area make this an airy and open room. There is a small island/bar area - great for a wine or coffee bar and there is extra storage underneath. The quant kitchen has an eating area and a built-in hutch. The mudroom adjoins the eating area and there are small shelves for knick-knacks, decor or whatever is pleasing to you. The bathroom has been updated with vinyl plank floroing and a newer vanity. There is a nice-sized linen closet and the washer and dryer are conveniently located in this area. All three bedrooms have nice-sized windows to enjoy the flowers in the yard. The outdoors is a private gardener's retreat. There is a pink rose bush in the herb garden with chives, lemon thyme, sage, garlic and parsley. The backyard also has Hollyhocks, morning glories, asparagus, horseradish and strawberry bushes. One can almost live off the land. The backyard is fully fenced in. The shed is great for yard and/or gardening tools. There is an open space toward the back of the yard for the kids or dogs to play in and a firepit for those great evening get-togethers. There is a driveway located near the front of the home with a gate to the backyard. The two-car garage is detached and has a entrance off the side of the home where you will find more green space. Truly a gardner's delight. Once you go through the fence, you will feel like you are in a private garden. The main area of the home as been freshly painted and new flooring in the kitchen, eating area and mudroom. Roof replaed in 2010. Newer windows too. Fence is 4 years old. Garage measures 20x22. Easy access to Route 38 and I-88. Walking distance to the Cortland library and town hall. Welcome to the cottage!
