Limetree Cottage

Designed by Barbara Weiss Architects, the Limetree Cottage takes me away to dreams of living in England, wearing Burberry and eating Sunday roast. Oh goodness I miss Yorkshire pudding. I studied and lived abroad in England, so I always have a yearning desire to visit again and again. Travel photos and lovely places also tend to foster my travel itch even more!

Located in the Wiltshire country side, the Limetree Cottage was gutted and refurbished to create a light and airy family weekend retreat. Beautiful gardens, exposed dishes, simple dining, lofty linens and lush green grass all make this interior a worthy place to get lost in for awhile.

The word tranquil comes to mind. I'd definitely love to get lost here for a little while. ☺

Will those people please adopt me? I will leave right away!
I have never been to the UK, but for some reason I have a deep yearning to. (My husband calls it an obsession.)
Perhaps all of those Jane Austen novels?
Love the blog- keep up the good work!

Wait for me -----

jae said...

If you studied and lived there, you must really miss the rich history and architecture. This is my idea of a cottage!

Hey Harriet said...

Yeah I could live there! Even the name is gorgeous. Limetree Cottage. I love that :)

cindy : quaint said...

getting lost never looked or sounded so good!

Holly said...

whats up, beautiful kitchen of my dreams?

littlebyrd said...

This is so appealing to me. I have always always wanted to go to England - I am jealous you got to spend some time there! For now these pictures will have to do :)

drollgirl said...

how do you keep sneaking in to my house and getting all these lovely pics of my fab stuff? i wish.

{michelle} said...

That's positively lovely! I want to visit there, gorgeous!

Joyce said...

I'll bring the scones if you bring the tea! I adore the kitchen!!

Rose C'est La Vie said...

Hmm, I am so sorry to demur but don't you think the architects have effaced the whole character of the house? You could be anywhere.

coco+kelley said...

so fresh and fantastically simple with a bit of that 'country' charm... i absolutely love it.

Cassie said...

I kind of wish they'd left some of the historical details! But I'm going to imagine that some unpleasant previous owners had already gutted it.

It's clean and pretty, but not really "old England"ish on the inside.

Mary-Laure said...

Divine, so rustic on the outside and so modern on the inside, my kinda place.

Victoria said...

Beautiful. I adore the 2nd to last photo... that window!
(My daughter will be studying and living in England next fall. I am so happy for her!)

nkp said...

Delightfully charming and that bedroom is absolutely ethereal. In fact, the only reason I would get out of bed would be to open the windows and let in the lovely scents of the cutting garden I imagine is directly outside my window.

Freshly Found said...

Quite minimalistic - yet warm and inviting!

Kotori said...

chelsea said...

Brittany Noel said...

This place is heaven. How I would love to live there.

Two Tall Girls said...

I love my home but sure wouldn't mind a place in the country like this to go away to and forget about the real world. It's beautiful.

Stella said...
