House of the Day: Colorado Cottage Is a Dream

Do you remember that scene from "The Wizard of Oz," when Dorothy wistfully sings "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in her sad, dark, pre-Technicolor world? ("There's a land that I heard of, once in a lullaby.") I really feel like this was the "somewhere" she was picturing. I mean, could you find a home more charming or adorable that's located, literally, over the rainbow?

Nestled on 170 acres of Brush Creek Valley wilderness, overlooking a breathtaking lake and sweeping green meadows, this stunning $7.2 million cottage-style home in Eagle, Colo., is a dream. Boasting stone exteriors, wood floorboards, vintage-style decor and antique fireplaces, the home's aesthetics are warm and earthy, complementing its extraordinary natural surrounds. We especially love the home's gorgeous, non-traditional bathroom, with its wooden walls and antique light fixtures.

The home, which spans 6,378 square feet, features four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
