Welcome to the 338th Metamorphosis Monday!
In 2008, the unthinkable happened. A storm came and lightening reduced this beautiful Victorian home to charred rubble. The owners, Christy and Don, began a new, determined to rebuild their home following the design of the original house as their guide.
It took two full years to bring it back, but oh my gosh, is it wonderful!
I love the turret, the larger dormers on the side, the bays, the gables and that fabulous wrap-around porch! Victorian homes are so beautiful with their wonderfully complex roof lines.
In this aerial view, you can see the carriage house nearby.
When it’s raining, there’s a covered area (porte cochere?) that’s perfect for pulling under when arriving home.
The porch is beyond fabulous! Let’s check it out!
In love! Is there anything more beautiful and more cooling than white wicker with dark green cushions on a big gallery porch. It looks like a beautiful resort, doesn’t it? Notice all the hydrangea wreaths.
There are several of those across the porch.
I wonder if Christy made the wreaths with hydrangeas from her beautiful garden.
Can you just imagine the arrangement these would make, it’s truly a rainbow of colors!
Such a beautiful garden and lawn!
Tomorrow we’re going inside this beautiful home for a full tour and you will NOT want to miss it! I would have shared the interior photos today, but this post would have been way too long.
Here are a couple of pictures to give you a little preview of our tour tomorrow. Every room is just as lovely as this beautiful kitchen!
The design and attention to detail is wonderful throughout! Stop by tomorrow for a tour of all the rooms.
Thanks so much to Christy’s mom, Phyllis, for sharing the beautiful pictures for today’s post. See you tomorrow!
Looking forward to all the fabulous Before and Afters for this Met Monday!
