Karen's Cottage

Welcome to Karen's Cottage!

You may click on any image to enlarge.

Karen lives with her husband of 42 years and her son in this lovely Victorian Country style home in a small town in Missouri. She has lived in her home about 10 years and has made many renovations. When the home was first purchased, it had only one bedroom, one level and one bathroom. They have added on a second floor with a family room, three large bedrooms, storage room and bathroom.

She says that collecting antique dishes and family heirlooms are among her favorites. Daisies are her favorite flower and can be found on her curtain over her kitchen sink along with a daisy basket, which was a gift from her daughter.
Her front sitting porch is a favorite place to relax in the morning, with a cup of coffee or in the cool evenings. Karen also enjoys her flowers and ferns in the summer time and can be found watering them every morning. That's her time to visit with the neighbors and those out for a morning walk. She designed and made the rock sidewalk leading up to the front porch.
We hope that Karen will show more pictures of her lovely home with us again and also a photo of herself. :)

I hope you have enjoyed your visit at Karen's Cottage today! :)

~Ball Cottage~

Welcome To Ball Cottage!

Ball Cottage is a beautiful Tudor style home that is located in a small town in Missouri. (Mtn. Grove) It is listed for sale and has been vacant for a long time. It's so sad to see it vacant because it would be such a lovely home to live in.

I toured this home on the last home tour that it was listed in and touring inside was quite the treat. It is first class building and decorating all the way. With the upstairs wings that would be wonderful for today's teenagers. And there's a secret room that is accessed through a closet upstairs. Ther are two balconies that overlook the great room. And two balconies upstairs. Large lovely windows are throughout the home.

The foyer has Italian marble and the stair case is solid cherry. Solid cherry is used in cabinets, floors and built-ins throughout the house. The backyard has a nice in-ground pool, sauna, waterfall and a pool house and surrounded by rod iron fencing. The grounds cover 4 acres within the city limits.

The listing for this home is priced at $695,000 which is $25,000 under the appraisal value. It has 8,572 square feet and 16 rooms. I hope that it doesn't have to sit vacant for much longer. It's such a lovely home to be empty.

Thank you for visiting Ball cottage today and I hope you've enjoyed your visit! :)

Welcome to Romantic Cottage Tours!
I am so glad that you came!

I visit with many women, around the world, on the Internet each day. And the one thing that we all seem to have in common, is that we love to visit beautifully decorated homes. It inspires us to see how others have decorated inside and outside of their homes.

So, I decided to create this website to bring all of us together and be able to look at the beauty that is created around the globe.
