After days and days of of having a long distance affection for the Victorian,
the day to see her was here.
The charm of the wrap around porch greeted us as we went up the drive and parked in the
rear of the house.
Getting out of the truck, I saw the sunroom and screen porch, just as lovely as
I could hardly contain my excitement as the front door was opened and we went inside.
Although wonderfully decorated, I was surprised at the small front parlor.
Barely enough room for a full size sofa and chair.
But the windows???? awesome!
The den/ office area is a good size and has a side door leading out to the wrap around porch.
And look at the pocket doors.. Don’t see those often anymore. sigh
The dining room is very spacious. However, as common with older homes, the uneven floors are very
noticeable in that room.
The kitchen has been updated and while it may not be my taste, I could definitely live with it for a while.
The upstairs bedrooms are charming, but again, there are unleveled floors and as always…not enough closet space.
It was when I saw the bathrooms, that my love for this Victorian took a sharp turn downwards.
Not feeling the love for the outdated, carpeted master bath at all.
I understand updating bathrooms in a 1905 house is beyond challenging, and I am not ready to tackle the job.
From past experience bathroom remodels are full of expensive surprises.
No thank you! Not at this time.
I reluctantly said goodbye as we drove out of the driveway and traveled a few miles to this historic plantation home.
