Home Tour

Who is ready for a home tour!? I know I ALWAYS love looking at homes for sale and going to open houses. Yesterday I took y'all to an area that I just love back in my hometown that  has many many gorgeous homes. Today I thought that I would share one of those home with y'all! 
My mom read my post yesterday and asked how in the world I was going to pull that off cause she knew we had not actually gone inside any of the homes we saw. So let me go ahead and state that these pictures are NOT mine. I am sharing them off of Zillow. I went and looked thru tons of homes for sale and decided I wanted to share with ya this one for all of its beauty! Zillow is a great place to browse thru homes for sale.
Without further ado...
This beautiful home was built back in 1911 and the home owners did a fabulous renovating it I think! It was purchased back in 2002 for just $480,000 and today they are asking over $800,000 but you will soon see why!

Here is the foyer of this magnificent 4200 sq ft home. I LOVE those columns.

The formal living room with stylish furnishings and a better look at these amazing columns.I am guessing that the chandy may be original to the house possibly.
Lovely dining area.
Cozy living area. I love the old brick fireplace but I would have to say I am not liking the bar area thing. That would have to go. It makes the room look really small. It appears for some reason they ripped up the wood flooring that can be seen thru out the rest of the home and tiled this area. Not sure why. Maybe the floors were original to the home and they could not save them in here. I would have gone a different route though than a large grey tile. Something that is more fitting to the home even if the wood would not match or I can even picture a brick flooring. In a sec I will share the link so you can view the Virtual Tour and see for yourself more of what I am talking about.

Next up there appears to be a very spacious master bedroom. You will see more of this room as well as others when you view the virtual tour. 

A very spacious kitchen that I am sure they redid back when they purchased the home but could use a another refresher. With a few minor tweaks like stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and new hardware and this kitchen could be a show stopper! I can see a chandy hanging over the island instead of that pot light.

A porch that would be very fitting for me! I can imagine sitting on this front porch blogging all day long!;)

The backyard does not leave you disappointed either! The landscaping is just beautiful.

And this pool is amazing!! Yes, if we moved back home and had $870,000 to spend this home would be a contender for sure! 

So if ya wanna see more of this beautiful home here is the link you can go to. It includes the virtual tour that is a MUST! You will see many more fabulous features of this home like all the fireplaces!!

What do you think the original homeowners would think about their home today!?

Have a great one y'all!
