Knock down these darling vintage cottages and you're dead to us. Sorry, we're tough yet fair. Of course the property, which is 0.23 acre with two small houses on it, has negatives resulting in the low price: it's right on Accabonac Road and the train tracks run at the bottom of the garden. On the other hand, it's easy to walk to anything in the village. And yes, the decoration of these places isn't making the most of them. Now the good stuff: the main cottage has two bedrooms and two baths. It dates from c. 1744 and features beamed ceilings and very wide plank pine floors, along with an old fireplace. The guest cottage is very small, but there's one bedroom, one bath, a living room with fireplace and a sweet old kitchen. There are pretty brick paths around the garden and a pool. Plus there are new cedar roofs and siding. The listing hints that a new owner could knock it down with "Inspiring numerous scenarios, this unique property could not now be duplicated," but hmmm, hmmm hmmm, can't heeeeeeear you!
