I occasionally get emails from Oldhousedotcom, with information about historic homes that have recently come on the market. This big, 1905 Victorian in Newnan, Georgia caught my eye.
Love how the porch ceiling is painted haint blue! No need to worry about evil spirits finding their way into the house. You can read more about haint blue and see samples of some haint blue paints for your porch ceiling in this post: Haint Blue for the Porch Ceiling Wonderful porch, but wait until you see the dining room!
Here’s the room that made my heart go pitter, patter. This dining room makes me dream of wallpapering mine all over again. Wish my dining room was this large. Lovely room! The only thing I’d change/add is a big, beautiful chandelier over the table. Can you see it? Would be stunning, wouldn’t it? Love the mirror!
One more home fell into the drool-worthy category. This 1912 Georgian-Federal home located in Manning, South Carolina has curb appeal to spare. I wonder what’s upstairs in the attic. Think it’s a room or just an attic? I always wonder about those attic spaces. I imagine a hideaway spot just right for penning a wonderful novel or with the perfect light for drawing or painting. Yes, I know…I”m a hopeless romantic.
Love that big rocking-chair front porch! Let’s go inside.
Beautiful entry with a wonderful staircase leading up. That’s mahogany inlay there in the floors. Gorgerous!
The dining room with built in cabinetry has “original glass” windows overlooking the back yard. Wait until you see the back yard!
A first floor bedroom…
And now for that backyard view…this looks pretty wonderful on a hot July day, doesn’t it? What a great place to entertain! The view across the street is of a beautiful historic church. You can just see the spire peeking over the trees.
