This one's a charmer.
It's very cottage-y despite being almost 4,000 square feet which qualifies it as absolutely NOT a cottage.
Let's start withe the front of the home.
What a tranquil spot!
I adore the color of the outside of this home.
The canopy of trees and flowerbeds and foundation plantings are just woodsy perfection.
Sunny living room.
Everyone needs a grand piano. Another sunny room.
Love the color of the walls in the dining room and that wall of windows!
Those modern/retro yellow wingback chairs are awesome!
The paneling in this room is so elegant and traditional and then there is this modern furniture that gives the room edge. I bet those chairs are really comfortable too.
Great glass front cabinets all the way to the ceiling.
I love everything about this kitchen except for the barstools but they do bring in the retro modern vibe
from the other room.
Nice den....game room.
This house really is overflowing in windows...lots of great light.
Very pretty bedroom. Love that there are french doors to the outside.
Very nice bathroom, although the finishes don't speak to me.
Huge tub...which is nice. But this room is soooo boring.
Oh...my, this is a sweet room!
I know knotty pine is soooo out these days...but
I do love this sweet bed.
I also love the puddled pink curtains and french settee and chair.
If you start out life with a room like this....it doesn't give you room for much improvement later in life.
Another bedroom - for a boy.
This is the bath for me! Love every bit of it.
The sink and fixtures...the tub...the tile...the transom over the door.
And finally, of course the subway tile.
Then there are outdoor fireplaces...not just one....
This house has many outdoor rooms.
Outback view to the house.
What great outdoor spaces!
It's a living room outdoors. Love the furniture.
I can just imagine all the evenings spent here.
I adore that iron bench/sofa mixed with the industrial coffee table.
Oh...I'd like to sit by this fire.
Around on the side of the house a wonderful pool.
I really like the design of this one all tucked into the side instead of taking up a lot of space outback.
Courtyard...complete with wall fountain.
Game room in the guest cottage.
A smal cozy living room in the guest cottage.
I'm not sure where this bath is located in the house...but I do love all the finishes.

Have a great Sunday!
My weekend started off with a bang...I learned I need a new sewer line.
"A new sewer line?"
"Yep," the plumber said...
"where you tie in to the city line."
"but I got a new sewer line....eight years ago."
"Yes", the plumber said "but we didn't dig the 10 foot wide....20 feet deep hole for the
riser where your line goes into the city line".
Bad news is....
It's going to cost about $4,000 or more and I'll lose my existing fence and landscaping.
Good news is...
I hate my landscaping out back and wanted to eventually do something different.
And I was just in the planning stages of a new fence.
Super glad I didn't already have a new fence installed.
That would have really made me sick, to rip it out immediately.
Oh...the joys of living in a historic home.
It's not just the pretty to deal with.
It's the down right ugly too.
