Traditionally, the Cotswold cottage would have been built with a rough stone exterior, but I rather prefer the white-washed stuccoed exterior. This quaint little residence is best suited for those green-thumbed sims who prefer those tranquil afternoons of tending gardens over parties and lavish indulgences. It includes a small grove of apple trees, and a tending area for a small assemblage of plants (tomatoes, strawberries, etc.) Inside, it has a very coutry-meets-pottery barn feel, and includes three bedrooms and two baths. What sim could resist such a slice of country delight?
