I'm in Love with this House!!!

There is a house in my neighborhood that I've always admired. It was built in the early 1800's and is absolutely beautiful. It is cute and cozy and all the things I love about a home. I was so excited when Mimi Sue set up a home tour and this house was on the tour! The people who now own the house have done such an incredible job of restoring it.

This first room is the front room. It is also part of the original house. The current owners have added onto the house, and made it at least twice the size of the original house.

The neat thing about the current owners is that the history of this home means so much to them. You can tell that they just love telling stories about this beautiful home. Isn't this bathroom cute? EVERYTHING in this home is decorated perfectly, and as true to the period that is was built in as possible.
I love this room. I wish I could have gotten more pictures, I found myself deleting family pictures trying to get more pictures of this incredible home! One of the neat things the owners told us about was that Eliza R. Snow was know to stay here if she was coming through and needed a place to stay!

This pictures shows the original adobe brick used to construct the house.
Another beautiful room in the original part of the house.

This is the upstairs of the house, and this is the cute little playroom for their grandchildren. All the furniture is tiny and perfect size for children! Off of this playroom is a cute little bedroom.

I love the cute little windows.

This is the Master Bathroom and it is in the addition that they built on. Wouldn't you just love to sit and soak and read a book in that tub!

And here is the Master bedroom!

This home was so incredible, I wish so bad that I could have gotten more pictures, there is so much more to see. Maybe one of these times I'll have to ask the owners if they would ever give me a little private tour! The outside of the home is also beautiful. In the summer they do a lot of wedding receptions there. I'll have to go on a walk and take some pictures of the outside of it.

I love both the bathrooms - so so awesome. I have a brand new home, which I love, but it does lack history, character.

What a beautiful home. OK, it's coming onto spring, and this is a very dangerous time of year for me!!! I want to redo everything from the outside of my house in! I could break the bank looking at homes like this and thinking up scccchems to do on my own home....LOL
What a home for sure! Fun post.
