At first glance you might think this is an old English cottage, but no! This house is called Fig Tree Cottage and was built in 1988 in Queensland, Australia. The architect spent much of his time in the UK learning how to build a traditional Cotswold style cottage so he could recreate the look of one. And he succeeded!
The house has the same traditional Cotswold look and spirit inside, reflecting the most fascinating features of old world living. Quaint little doors, heavy wooden beams and dreamy skylights upstairs combine with the wooden staircase and huge old brick fireplace to create an enveloping feeling of coziness and warmth. Polished timber floors upstairs and quarry tile downstairs perfectly match the English cottage decor.
The house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with each location being a perfect example of how to create that beautiful classic English country style. My favorite room here is the living room with a couple of white sofas, a white coffee table with drawers, a light blue dresser and a white fireplace in a brick alcove. Blue and white decorative plates add style to the room.
One of the rooms opens onto the garden, here there is a terrace. All of this is behind a beautiful white picket fence.
