First off I want to say “thank you” to everyone leaving such happy and fun comments. I do hope to visit each and every one of your blogs very soon. Right now there seems to be not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that needs to be done. I am sure you can relate. But know you are loved!!!
Another lovely brick home on a quiet and pretty tree lined street.
As you enter the home there is a formal sitting area that has a fireplace and built ins.
A door way at the opposite end leads to the enclosed sun room and another leads into the kitchen.
To the immediate right of the entry is the formal dining room. It features plantation shutters and a chair rail.
To the right of the entry is a hallway that leads to three bedrooms.
One room is good size and also has plantation shutters. There is quite a bit of room for storage in the closet.
The other room is slightly smaller and features an interesting window treatment. I would probably make this my office.
In between the two bedrooms and a master is a full bathroom. It could use a few updates. The tile flooring is new and the cabinets and boxes are solid wood.
The master bedroom, while not ginormous, would work for us.
The bathroom that time forgot. :) I would replace the tub with a white freestanding tub.
The master bedroom leads into the sun room.
It features built in shelving, tile flooring and a yummy brick wall.
The stairs lead up to another bedroom suite.
It too has a full bath and a large walk in closet which was capture in a video. (It is somewhat shaky due to walking. My apologies.)
Back downstairs you can pass through the sunroom into the kitchen. On the opposite wall is a door to the laundry and pantry area and to the right is the formal dining space which was shown earlier.
It’s a good size. I would probably open up the space by taking out the oven (which is original to the house) and have a freestanding gas topped stove and range combo where the current cooktop is.
The current solution just needlessly commands a bit too much attention and visual space.
A bonus is that all the cabinets and boxes are solid wood (no builder grade MDF!) and could be easily sanded and painted.
Neutral countertops would also go a long way to update this great space.
Here is a video made of the backyard. Two things I will apologize for in advance. You can hear the dismay in my voice that the previous owners just chose to select and place a variety of landscaping rock, stone, pavers, pebble, brick… down in a come what may fashion. Then the shooting gets crazy due to a huge bug I spied on the shed. I think it was a rhinoceros beetle. ???
For your viewing and mocking pleasure.
But boy with a bit of work it could be something!
Come back tomorrow for a storybook home.
