Named for a well loved previous owner and the bank of daylilies at the property entrance, Daylily Cottage is cute, cozy, and impossible not to like. Located at the edge of the village of Flint Hill and surrounded by larger estates, this small cottage is an ideal country pied-a-terre. The cottage and small studio/workshop sit in private surround of greenery that is perfect for honing your garden ambitions or simply enjoying a good book in a hammock. Though only on a half acre, the adjoining fields provide distant mountain vistas and views for miles.

The 0.59 acre lot of Daylily Cottage is situated at the intersection of Ben Venue Road and Zachary Taylor Highway on the outskirts of Flint Hill. Complete privacy is achieved by the elevated lot surrounded by mature evergreens. There are mature landscape plantings around the cottage and several other locations. A board fence separates the property from neighboring pastures. There is plenty of space for gardening or a small pond.
An outbuilding at the back of the lot has water and electricity and is divided into three sections. The first section is a 12×12 room with a concrete floor and suited as a workshop or potting shed. The next section is an 8×8 room with finished walls and skylight and two windows and would make a great writing or artist studio.
