Finally...pics of the new home!


Welcome to our new home!  

Above is the entrance...to the right is the dining room, to the left is the living room and straight back goes out to the back yard!



Love this little area and it has a unique domed ceiling...can you see the little cottage in the back?


Here is a better picture of the cottage...the prior owner was trying some different paint colors on it...that is why it is a bit multi-colored!  We will be painting it the same color we choose for the main house.


Above is the living room...as seen from the front entrance/foyer.


Just another picture of the living room...this time from the back of the living room...there are two small sunrooms at the front of the home...one is accessed from the living room.


...and the other is accessed from the dining room.  We are thinking about making the living room sunroom into a nice sunny office and the one off the dining room into a piano room...


So the kitchen is a bit of a mess with some maintenance things we are taking care of...but otherwise you can get the idea.  We are leaving it as is...but will be changing the color of the walls (making them a bit lighter in color)...and hopefully adding the below simple marble backsplash.


Currently, there is a black laminate backsplash...


There is a cute little mudroom to the side of the kitchen-- a perfect sink to wash our little Westie in!


Well...that is it for now!  


The painting starts today-- can't wait to see it all cleaned up and painted!

Happy Thursday!
Caroline

Thank you all for your sweet comments!

Hi Ms. Bright- The house (we believe) was built around 1925.

Take care,
Caroline

Caroline, your home is beautiful. I love the architectural details and the room with the windows and black & white floor. The kitchen will look great with those marble tiles on the splashback. And I'm glad you're changing the black paint on the kitchen walls, it's a bit heavy isn't it? Can't wait to see your progress, Amber

GORGEOUS as is. I can't even begin to comprehend how amazing it is going to look after you make your changes and move in. Your home looks the way I hope mine will someday when we finish our renovations.
