What makes a place so special that you can’t wait to return to it again and again? Maybe it is a cozy nook to finish a book or cruise the Internet, or an outdoor oasis where you can start the day with a cup of coffee and watch the pets play. It could also be a stunning kitchen with all the bells and whistles where you try new dishes or get the crew together to catch up over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. 

Take a tour of these 6 available homes this weekend and find a new favorite place to hang out in a cool neighborhood close to restaurants, retail, green space and other popular venues. Happy touring!
