From time to time I like to dream and I look to see what is for sale in an area just north of us. They have some of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen. Some new and a lot of older homes. I like looking mostly at the older homes and all of their architectural features. We will never be able to afford anything in any of these hoods but again I love to day dream about what I would do with them if we could ever afford one one day.
I decided I would share some of these beautiful homes with ya'll. The first is the most quintessential home of the south if there ever was one! It caught my eye immediately in the list.
Look at those tall stately columns and long front porch! I can picture a few rocking chairs and some topiaries framing the entrance. The curb appeal on this home makes you want to run up that walk way to check the inside out.
Over all this home is pretty much move in ready but does need updating in certain areas. I love this huge foyer and the hardwood floors are to die for! That front door is just divine!
This is the dining room. I love all the moldings and even the color on the walls. I was wanting to attempt red in our dining room but I was afraid it would make it too dark but not this room! It is so bright and inviting. The fireplace is scrumptious as well. I can see many holiday dinners in here.
This is the formal living room. Yet again another fireplace and more beautiful moldings. They even took the molding details up to the ceilings. I want to add some molding to ours one day.
This is a picture from the living room looking on to the kitchen. Those floors again are just beautiful. I would take the flooring up the stairs.
This is the master bath. Cringe! It certainly needs some major TLC but at least the cabinetry appears to be in good shape. Some new flooring, new counter tops, wall paper stripping , and some framed mirrors and new sinks and faucets this room could be divine! I can see a large chandy hanging in the center of the room.
You walk out the back door and are greeted with even more southern delight! Sweet tea by the pool anybody?
Just look at that gazebo back in the corner! This is truly a beautiful home that has sooo much potential. How much you may be asking? Well it has 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 half baths and a three car garage at just over 5200 sq ft for just a mere $565,000! So if ya have just over a half a million and are in our neck of the woods and want to look at this house for yourself I will gladly give you the link to the listing as long as you promise to let me come and tour it!;) I am sure this home would be well over a million in other areas of the country! Come back next week for another home tour!
