I’ve always been smitten with country cottages that have a bit of a modern farmhouse vibe. We spotted this cottage on The Design Files and it’s nothing short of charming! It’s nestled in green, rolling hills about an hour away from Melbourne, in a town called Gordon, which looks totally idyllic! We just started looking to buy a new property and I’m always torn between the city or the country. We love and could thrive in both settings! Right now, we live about halfway in between, which is ideal, but to buy an acre here, it’s very pricey. We looked at an absolutely gorgeous property with 2.5 acres yesterday, but it’s far and you can’t walk to anything. BUT, you have space, peace and an area for our son (and future kids) to run and play. So torn!! In the meantime, while I sit and write my pros and cons on what’s better – city or country living, I’m charmed by homes like this one. You can see all of the photos and a cute video on The Design Files!
