Oh Deer! A Fearfully Charming Stone Cottage For Sale

Oh deer! I am afraid I found a fearfully charming stone cottage for sale filled with lions and tigers and bears, oh my. Well, I saw a cougar, not a tiger. It’s a stone cottage dream on the outside. Inside, I am not so sure.

If you’re an outdoors man who likes taxidermy, this is the place for you to see.  Of course the stuffed deer, bear and lion might not come with the home if you move in. There is a delightful side to this. Get this! In the backyard there is a working train big enough for adults and little kids to ride in complete with real looking railroad crossings. Adorable! I hope the train comes with the house. This house keeps getting more and more interesting.

Look past the prying eyes, and this charming stone cottage for sale in River Forest, IL (a sought after suburb of Chicago) is actually extremely nice.
