A cultural cottage

In the late 18th and early 19th century, the Romantic movement sought to move away from the formality of the neo-classical and baroque styles to a more ‘natural’ way of living in terms of their architectural styles. As a consequence what became known as ‘cottage orné’ – or rustic, decorated cottages – became popular and now one is currently for sale at Snape Maltings in Suffolk with a guide price of £1.5 million ($2.3 million or €2.1 million) through agents Bedfords.
