Property’s Morning Obsession: Adorable, Affordable Ardmore Beach Cottage

Something about this home recalls a cottage on Cape Cod, the kind that might sit across from the dunes in Truro or along a side street in Wellfleet. The associations probably come from the wood shingling, the simple white kitchen and the hardwood floors, but the photo of two comfy chairs by a window with fading light doesn’t hurt either. Unlike the Cape, however, this is a house many people could afford: The asking price is currently $340,000.

The circa-1920 home (1,404 square feet) has five bedrooms and one bathroom (eek). Inside space is enhanced by a rear porch and rear yard; a basement; a mud room/pantry; and a three-car driveway. The sale is being handled by John Hodge of Duffy Real Estate.
