Dorothy Lane

Quite the find — that’s what I would call this precious 1945 cottage at 3517 Dorothy Lane. Not only does it have a choice Monticello location right across from Monticello Park, but it is definitely priced to move, at nearly 20 percent below the average square foot Monticello average.

The listing treats this enchanting charmer as a near fixer-upper. Admittedly the kitchen and baths would benefit from a redo but the rest of the residence has a near picture-perfect pristine aura. Attractive stone hardscape leads to the front entry.
