Thatched Cottage Western NY Style

Am I hallucinating? Suffering from separation anxiety or clinical nostalgia? Did I just doze off and wake up in Hampshire? No, this really is in our local town, Olean, New York, though I suppose the picket fence gives it away. It makes a change from the usual clapboard but it really should have roses growing over the door, Hollywood-style.

Seriously, our neighbourhood is not one for experimental housing - most people don't have the wherewithall for that.  So it was a pleasant surprise, tucked away on an ordinary sort of residential street. What's next? A Fish and Chip Shoppe?  I doubt it. It's not that sort of America around here.
