The large covered veranda offers a dining table for 8, and three suspended swinging lounge chairs – one of the many popular features of this cottage.
The story of Almond
The site of the current building was originally the location of the estate’s chicken coup. A simple 2 room living quarters for staff was then constructed in the 1970’s. In the early 1990’s, a kitchen, second bathroom, and large covered veranda were added. Over the years, various improvements have continuously been made, including structural repairs, better furniture and fixtures, solar hot water, and high speed internet.
Future renovation plans include a new roof and ceiling to create more height and accommodate ceiling fans, as well as tiled floors, and a roof over the small back deck.
