House Tour

31 May

It’s finally time!  After spending the past week in almost constant motion getting things done around the house, we are today experiencing some heavy rain and cannot do many of the projects we had on our list.  And since I know you’ve all been eagerly awaiting pictures of the house, let us not wait another minute.

Okay, well, let us wait one more minute so I can share Stevie Wonder and my first pictures as homeowners:

Can’t you see Steve’s enthusiasm?

Moving on.

First we have a view you’ve seen before…from across the street, the front of la casa:

Please note the lovely porch, one of my favorite parts of la casa.  Please disregard all the dandelions.

Here’s another view of the porch:

And moving into la casa, the front door:

Yes, that is the world’s cutest dog.  Came with the house.

Once inside the front door, you turn right and walk into the living room:

View from the other side:

And around to the left in the living room is the entrance to the dining room:

And the view from the other side:

Through the dining room is the kitchen:

The above picture is actually from the other side of the kitchen.  The door you see is the door to the dining room.  On the left of where I am standing with the camera is the breakfast nook:

From where I’m standing, if you do a 180 degree turn you will see the family room:

As you can see, Reggie decided he wanted to make an appearance.  And for those of you who read the blog while we were in Virginia (way to stick with it), there is another family member on the right side of this picture who is very important to me.

When you look to the right in the family room you see the sliding doors to the backyard and the fireplace:

An outdoor tour will follow once my garden is in bloom and my flowers are in bloom.  They’re mine now, ’cause I bought the property, see.

On the other side of the family room is the built-in bookshelves pictured below and a doorway to the front hall:

What’s that, you ask.  What’s that, there, beyond the doorway? Why, it’s our wet bar.  As you can see it’s rather messy so I’ll give you a close up at a later date.

On the other side of the hallway is a half bath:

Right now, I kid you not, that bathroom is pink, brown, and purple.  It’s the most beautiful room in the house.  This little bathroom nook is also where the doors to the garage and the basement reside, but I won’t bore you with those gory details.

Here’s a look at the front hallway from the opposite end of the hall:

Now, let’s go back to that front door and this time, take a left:

At the top of the steps, there is a long center hallway:

An immediate left finds you in the guest bathroom:

And an immediate left takes you into the first of the bedrooms:

This bedroom is connected to another at the front of the house by a set of sliding doors.  If you head to the opposite corner of that second bedroom, this is the view you get:

That door that is showcasing Reggie’s arse is the door we walked in.  We’ll head out the near door on the right and take an immediate right into another room, Stevie Wonder’s office:

If we go back out of this room and enter the door on the opposite wall of the hallway, we’ll enter the master bedroom through:

One set of closets…

Two sets of closets…


We also have a master bathroom that sits behind the closets, to the right of the above picture:

And that’s it.  That’s the last picture I have to show you!  There’s been a lot so I won’t put too many more words in here but I hope you enjoyed the tour!

    Beautiful!! It was so nice to see you and Steve (and Reggie) last week. Thanks for welcoming me into your lovely new home 🙂
