I live in a pretty incredible area - in Montreal, It's an historical neighbourhood loaded with tons and tons of charm - and 20th century architecture, just steps away from the city center, it's also a pretty expensive neighbourhood ( in which I live in servants quarters basically compared to what I'm surrounded by )Because there are days I don't have furniture makeovers to show you - I've chosen Wednesdays to showcase and feature one or two homes that are for sale around here.................( or apartment - or duplex - or teepee )
Keep in mind this is in the heart of the city - so the prices reflect that - think Manhattan - where these places would cost 3 or 4 times what they're listed for here!
On occasion I'll showcase beautiful homes in other areas - countries - continents - the one thing most of them will have have in common will be their age - because I love old homes with stories to tell, join me won't you?
We have pre-war homes. flats and apartments in Montreal (like Manhattan) meaning before World War II
But the South has Antebellum homes - which are also prewar - but the CIVIL WAR...........now that's a home filled with history.
Series within a series - I plan on doing a mini-series ( like North an South ) within the I WANNA live there series just for these homes - they're so spectacular they deserve to have their own!
Antebellum architecture (sometimes spelled ante-bellum, meaning "pre-war", from the Latinante, "before", and bellum, "war") is the neoclassical architectural style characteristic of theSouthern United States, especially the Old South, from after the birth of the United States in theAmerican Revolution, to the start of the American Civil War.[unreliable source?] Antebellum architecture is especially characterized by neoclassical and Greek revival style plantationhouses and mansions
Part 1 -
This week we have this one in Washington, Georgia -
just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind
well an old sweet song and this house
house size 5,500 square feet
What a gorgeous home but take a moment to check out the furniture!!!
I don't know where to rest my eyes with this house really
The west side porch (excellent swinging porch) overlooks the steet side yard and an original ornate well house while the east side porch (excellent rocking chair porch as evident by the many rockers) overlooks an inviting 18 x 36 inground pool tucked privately in an area amid gardens, meandering walkways and lovely gazebo. There is also a charming GUEST HOUSE on the grounds along with several quaint barns and farm structures.
here's where I'll put you up when you come to visit
OMG I'm so in love with this listing
and lastly for your listening pleasure
the great Ray Charles and Willie Nelson
have a wonderful Wednesday
