Even though temperatures are supposed to dip below freezing this weekend, the owners of a bright, spring-y colored cottage have put the home on the market, like a promise that sweet-tea weather is right around the corner. The 1902 Queen Anne is less than a block from Grant Park, with a porch perfect for people watching, and a short walk over Interstate 20 from the restaurants along Memorial Drive, across from Oakland Cemetery. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and heaps of charm, the home is listed for $440,000. Four of the five original fireplaces are still working, and there's oodles of turn-of-the-century millwork and heart-pine floors. And fortunately for any new owners, the front porch will be ready for them to sit and sip sweet tea when the weather finally decides to cooperate.
