Chocolate Creek Cottage

Our new cottage is a 1965 brick ranch on 1 acre of land. We are further out in the country so there are lots of fields and farm animals all around us.

The new house, which we named after Chocolate Creek, which runs behind our property, is around 1700 square feet with 3 bedrooms.

The house hasn't seen a lot of updates in it's 56 years so it's retained many of the original features. Let's take a look at the house.

Family room: This room is typical of the time period. It's open to the dining area and kitchen (complete with railing) and is a step down (typically called a sunken living room).

Eat-in kitchen: The kitchen itself is a nice, large space but it's poorly laid out and the cabinets need to be replaced.

Den: This space is in the front of the house, next to the entryway. I'm not sure how the previous owner used this space, but we will be using it as a den.

Master bedroom: At the end of the hallway is our master bedroom. This room is almost the same exact size as our bedroom in our little stone cottage.
