I haven't done a IWLTW post in awhile now - and after looking at top posts from last year I realized they are some of my most viewed !
So here we go again :)
I found this one on ZILLOW - a spectacular old farmhouse in Saranac Lake, N.Y.
( close to Montreal actually - I've been to this picturesque town many times )
It was once a Carmelite Nunnery - a Sanitorium - a Nursing Home and a boarding house !
The last owners fell in love with it and turned it into a single home ( private residence )
8500 square feet ( more a farmhouse mansion actually )
14 bedrooms ( 8 with sleeping porches )
Built in 1896
Realtor - BOB MARTIN
This would make the most glorious Bed & Breakfast !!! ( if you were so inclined - and if you were I would be your first customer ! )
Let's go !
I'm in love with the back !
That fireplace - those windows !
A butler's pantry
view to the sleeping porch
Radiators - oh how I love old radiators !
A view from the - drum roll please - WIDOW'S WALK !!! The ad says there's fireworks on the 4th of July
Can you imagine sitting out there watching that?
What a truly glorious piece of history !!!
Nestled in a gorgeous location
Yep - I most definitely would want to live there ! I'd fill it to the brim with Shabby delights - although it's not too shabby exactly as it is !
Many more pictures on the site zillow
Have a wonderful day everyone - the first week of the new year is half over !
