Wednesday it was 75° here, this morning I awoke to snow. Welcome to Georgia, a state where you can experience all four seasons in just 48 hours! As I type this, the snow covering the top of the screened porch this morning is long gone and we’re back up to a balmy 47°.
Remember this beautiful entry I shared a couple of days ago? It turns out, there’s a gorgeous house attached to it. 😉 I thought you might enjoy seeing the rest of it, but before we take the tour I wanted to thank you for the comments on the post regarding wallpaper in a foyer or entry. I loved hearing your thoughts and they were really helpful!
The entry belongs to this new “old” house, a beautiful Georgian Colonial located in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Let’s go inside and take a tour.
Such a beautiful entrance!
For some reason it made me think of this scene from The Money Pit with Tom Hanks and Shelley Long.
The living room is large and spacious. I love the rug!
The family room with built-in cabinetry/bookcases… I bet there’s a story behind the football helmets on the bookcases.
Does anyone recognize the stove, maybe something European? Looks like the refrigerator is the hidden kind…love that! Is that a two-drawer dishwasher?
Across from the kitchen is the breakfast area with its own fireplace. I love that you can see the fireplace from the kitchen!
This picture of the dining room is from a video so it’s a bit blurry. Gorgeous dining room!
An elegant butler’s pantry dressed in black and white…
There’s a screened porch with an area for dining. I think the one thing I would change in this area would be to place the wicker seating group facing out into the yard, maybe in the spot where the dining furniture is currently located. Then place a round table in the corner where we see the fern. There must be another way to arrange the furniture to enjoy the wonderful views into the backyard. Wait until you see the backyard!
The back of the home is just as beautiful as the front! Have you ever visited any of the historic homes along the James River in Virginia?
This design would have been perfect for a home built along the river like they did back in Colonial days. The back is just as beautiful as the front and would have been a welcoming sight for those visiting via river side.
Love the raised vegetable garden and the adorable play house!
Hope you enjoyed the tour of this lovely country house. You’ll find additional pictures and information HERE where these photos were found.
