English country cottage in Brighton

Why fly all the way to England in search of your dream cottage when you can find it right in your own back yard?
And 82 Undine Road‘s spacious yard and English garden (not to mention the British origin of its village’s name) are not all that make this 1,764-square-foot Brighton single-family so distinctly European.
