A while back I received an e-mail from Michele who shared a link to a beautiful home in Virginia located on the East River. The pictures were so charming, I’ve been saving the link so I could share them with you. Actually, I’m sharing two homes and both happen to be on the market at the moment so I’ll include the links in case you want to see more.
The first home is an historic home located in Matthews County on the East River. It has equestrian facilities, a carriage house with an apartment above and a studio cottage. I was caught up in the beautiful photography as much as the homes. Notice how lovely a home looks when the picture is taken in the evening with lights on inside the home. Really feels so warm and inviting, doesn’t it?
Another view of the amazing gardens and surrounding property. This house sits on 12 acres.
The kitchen, breakfast area…love all that wonderful book storage!
Another view of the kitchen…
Pretty, updated bath. I so need to update all mine!
My favorite “room” of all. Doesn’t this take your breath away? What a gorgeous view out to the East River!
Love the three car garage with a wonderful room with dormers above. You can see that room and more of this beautiful home, here.
Classic Georgian Style Home:
There was another home that caught my eye…this is the view as you enter the driveway.
Are you dying to see the home? I am! And look…a four-legged friend is waiting for us!
Stunning entry! The listing says you can feel the breezes from the river down this beautiful center hall entry.
I always love the old historic homes that have the double screened doors at the front door.
The Dining Room: I miss having wallpaper in my home sometimes…it can be so charming in the right room.
The Master Bedroom and another bedroom: Wouldn’t you love to tour this home in person!
A cozy library
Have to have a screened in porch with these views…
A view looking back into the living room from the screened porch. You can see more of this house here.

Thanks again to Michele for telling me about this area of the country and the gorgeous homes!
