I live in a pretty incredible area - It's an historical neighbourhood loaded with tons and 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 home that's 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!
A BIG THANKS TO THE CHARM OF HOME for featuring I wanna live there 24
FIRST OF ALL - BEFORE I GO ON WITH THE POST - WE HIT 700 FOLLOWERS!!!!
I'M GOING TO POST THE GIVEAWAY ON MONDAY - STAY TUNED

Shall we begin our tours now?
I've been thinking that we've been setting our sights too low lately - 2 million here - 3 million there - I've even gone under 1 million at times ( as if we were common folk )
So I decided this week we're all going to sail across the ocean - and check out what is happening " across the pond "
We could be modern day Downton Abbey'ers
22 million pounds - so aproximately 34 million dollars -
that's more like it - this is what we really should be aiming for
5 ensuite bathrooms

OK OK - FINE - YOU ASKED FOR IT
YOU GOT IT
THIS ONE IS 21 MILLION - SO SLIGHTLY LESS THE THE FIRST ONE -
6 BEDROOMS - 4 EN SUITE
SEPARATE MEWS HOUSE
(Mews is a primarily British term formerly describing a row of stables, usually with carriage houses below and living quarters above, built around a paved yard or court, or along a street, behind large city houses, such as those of London, during the 17th and 18th centuries. The word may also refer to the lane, alley or back street onto which such stables open. It is sometimes applied to rows or groups of garages or, more broadly, to a narrow passage or a confined place. Today most mews stables have been converted into dwellings, some greatly modernised and considered highly desirable residences)
