Open House Sunday

The Pink Castle in Atlanta, Ga
built 1900 - 1923
I don't usually show such large homes...or rather mansions but this is so gorgeous...so European.
That outside had me the moment I saw the first photos.
This house was referred to in the book "Peachtree Road" by Anne Siddon.
I read that book a long time ago and loved it. I guess I need to reread it 
I believe this is the entrance but not the side seen from the street.
The interiors are very formal.
Look at that ceiling! It's amazing, isn't it?
I really love this room. The way it's decorated is just fine. Pink sofa and love those drapes and coffee table.
Oh...I love those very tall cabinets and the big hood over the stove.
I want to see more of this kitchen but this is all there is shown.
Every big mansion must have a ballroom.
Can you imagine the parties that must have been held here?
pretty bedrooms...but they need some updating.
I'd love to see the bathrooms in this place...wouldn't you?
But...oh the facade...it's right out of a novel...isn't it?
