Because there's days I don't have furniture makeovers to show you - I've chosen Wednesdays to showcase and feature one home that's for sale around here.................( or apartment - or duplex - or teepee )
Hi Everybody - we're on to # 3 of my series...................there aren't as many photos of this one ( no bedrooms - kitchen or bathroom in sight ) but it's still worth taking a look at in my humble opinion - are you ready?
And because of the missing photos - what the hell - I'll include a mini makeover and a John says - Suzan says
at the end lol )
Ok - pull on up - just park on the grounds, the valet will find a spot for it I'm sure - ( JOHN - park the cars please )
Check out the wainscotting on the stair wall - and the details just below the treads - Victorian at it's finest - obviously I will have to lift all the carpets but I bet the wood is spectacular underneath - hmmm - maybe I'll have
marble installed in this area - what do you think? Check out the built in through the opening at the end of this area - is that a spectacular built in or what? Let's go check that baby out
Ok - those arches are seriously to die for, are they not?
And into the dining room........................
This looks like an apartment straight out of Paris doesn't it - I see a door to the left which must lead you out to the garden...............
OK HERE IS THE REASON I CHOSE THIS HOUSE - AND THE ONLY REASON - BECAUSE NORMALLY I WANT TO SEE KITCHENS AND BEDROOMS - BUT THIS MAKES UP FOR IT, I PROMISE - THE DINING ROOM FIREPLACE
Oh good grief - talk about GRANDEUR -
Is it normal to get this excited over photos of a house you will, without a doubt, never be able to live in? Probably not, we'll just add that to my list of disorders and move on to the living room now
I love the wall sconces - and the moldings - and the radiator covers - over to the right hand side - I don't miss a thing I tell ya..............................I love the built in ( not as grand as the D.R. but I love built ins regardless )
And that bright sunny doorway in the back of the room leads you to this
What a beautiful spot this would be for a couple of chaise lounges, right? And what a perfect spot to read a book in....................
Next we head on down to the basement -
In case you still have your fishing hat and fishing rod with you - can you please hang them up in the designated area -
Hunting lodge circa 1940? But oh what a hunting lodge circa 1940 it is....................................
And sadly that's all the listing shows - don't know why they wouldn't show the bedrooms - the kitchen is probably original and doesn't show well - little do they know that WE can see beyond anything.
This listing can be yours for 3,450.000.00 -
( I think the fireplace is worth 3,000.000.00 so it's really quite the deal )
Ok - here we go - we were on our way out on the weekend - again I'm all dressed up - hair done - and we were just pulling out of our alley in the back ( duh - as opposed to the alley in the front? )
Suzan screams - STOP THE CAR
John says - Now what?
Suzan says - I saw something
John says - What? There's absolutely nothing there
Suzan says - Please stop the car - I saw something I want
John says - Where for God Sakes? THERE'S NOTHING THERE - what do you want to take, the neighbours rose bush?
Suzan says - Stop the car John or I'll jump out while it's moving -
He stops the car and I run in my high heels - and grab my treasure and run back to the car
John says - I had to slam the brakes for THAT?
John says - how did you even SEE that? What are you a hawk?
Suzan says - well it was there John - in plain sight - you must be going blind
John says - it's aproximately a 12 inch piece of rotting wood - excuse me for not jumping
up and down in glee for a piece of rubbish ( yes he called it rubbish - he's British remember )
Suzan says - I have something in mind for it
John says - You're not going to put that piece of *&^$ on your blog are you?
Suzan says - of course I am
John says - you don't get embarassed, do you?
Suzan says - not at all - absolutely not at all
John says - Just do me a favor ok? Don't give any of our fabric customers your blog - I don't need them
to see what you're doing on the side - business is bad enough
John says - you're worse than a homeless person - they wouldn't even take that filthy piece of crap
John says - Good God - look at your hands, their filthy now
Suzan says - Oh be quiet John - or I'll wipe them on your suit...........................
Tonight I did this
because my " picking " and blogging seems to be removing a substantial amount of it from our home, lol
Kind of cute, no?
John says - You know what Suzan - I gotta hand it to you - I like it
Suzan says - Oh, go tell it on the mountain................................
And peace to all of you, my friends
