Tour an Historic Home Furnished with Gorgeous Antiques

While we continue enjoying all the great links for yesterday’s Met Monday, I thought I’d take you inside of the beautiful historic home where our garden club meets each month. But first, a little update on two small changes I made recently at BNOTP.

Each month my garden club meets in this wonderful, two-story Victorian home. It majestically sits on over 3 acres of land, surrounded by beautiful gardens. The home was built in 1850 and was constructed with hand-made square nails and wooden pegs!

What’s say we go in and take a little tour. I love the paint color here in the entry. This home is furnished with some gorgeous antiques.

I took these photos on two different evenings, so that’s why some of the pics of the living room were taking during the day and some were taken at night. Actually, I’m kind of glad I did that because the walls really look different depending on if it’s daytime or nighttime. Here’s the nighttime view.

And a daytime view…

How do you like the corner cabinet?

Here’s a little close-up…

Note the beautiful cabinet with storage for china. I wonder if that piece has a drop-down desk? It looks like it does.

A closer look…

This room also has a wonderful tall case clock.

Here’s the other end of the room. I love the arched doorways, heavy moldings and tall ceilings. ~~~SIGH~~~

Even the bathroom is beautifully decorated.

Not sure if this room is considered the library, music room or the parlor. I wonder if the colors they painted the rooms are historic colors. I love the beautiful blue color of the walls in this bright, sunny room. Great mirror, too.

A beautiful piano…

The dining room is painted a rather bold color…kind of a deep coral.

Fabulous sideboard and mirror…

Another amazing tall case clock. I love all the inlay on this piece.

Isn’t the chandelier pretty reflected in the mirror? 🙂

Here’s a better view of that great chandelier.

Hope you enjoyed the tour of this wonderful, old home. If you’d like to tour more lovely historic homes, click HERE. Or, just click on the “Historic Home Tours” picture link on the sidebar.

  6. Susan, I always enjoy your visits to historic homes. The corner china cabinet is beautiful and I wonder also about the drop down desk since it looks like something should be beneath it. Thanks for sharing and have a good day. Hope you didn't have damage from the bad storm last night.
    Hugs, Babs

    Like you, I love the heavy moldings,arches and high ceilings as just the other day we wanted to buy a vintage chandalier… and in our house, from the cealing to the table there was just 8 or 10 inches before touching the dinner table!…in stead we came home with a beautiful vintage Italian table. Thank you for showing this amazing historic house.
    Have a nice day Susan.

    What a spectacular home! I love the tall windows and can imagine them back in the day open with the sheer panels hanging down and blowing in the breeze…..thanks for the tour Ms. Susan 🙂

    Hello from Frog Hollow Farm. What a beautiful home and gorgeous photos! I do love the elegant simplicity of each room. That blue paint looks like a French blue color that I'm in love with. Take care, ciao, bella!

  12. Wow,Susan. I loved that tour! Great. What a beautiful home. Oh, that grandfather clock with the angels on top was stunning! Loved the chandelier, too, and the Victorian couch. Great pictorial tour. Thanks! Susan

  13. Yep, she's a looker!
    Love the round arches and the rounded mirror in the entry, and the wall color is similar to mine(khaki),it looks different in the day/night.

    Oh Susan~ ~I am drooling! This is my kind of house. The beautiful woodwork around the windows and doors and the deep baseboards. It would cost a fortune to build it today. I would love to see cove molding around the ceilings. .such elegance. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! What a beautiful home! How do you concentrate on your book club when you are there? I think my mind would just get lost with all of that beautiful space.

  19. Ispirato Design says

    Thank you so much. I love getting a peak into any old home. The attention to detail always amazes me. The setting looks very pretty as well!

  20. A dream home, for sure.

  21. I love the sense of history and great architecture in old homes. I would have to find another place for the fire extinguisher, though.

  22. Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) says

    Babs, thanks for asking. It was CRAZY here last night…very scary. Fortunately, all my trees are still standing. Max and I hid out in the basement for a while. Hope you guys were safe.

  23. What a lovely treat you have given us today…..a tour of a gorgeous historic home and I did not even have to leave home to see it. The outside of the home is spectacular…..love the setting of the house too. It is most impressive. The furniture seems to be just right for the size of the rooms, and I wonder if it original to the home. The two clocks are museum quality and so unique!!

  24. Beautiful!! Same year as mine but mine is a farmhouse and this is a grand fancy house.

  25. Hi Susan! What a wonderful tour and what a lovely house!
    Oh, I hope you can come to my party! Folks would love peeping into your cupboards! 🙂
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  26. Wow, what a great place for meetings. Lucky you! Thanks for sharing all the photos of the beautiful rooms filled with antiques. ~ Sarah

  27. Thank you for sharing Susan, I could live there quite happily!! 🙂
    You would love some of the houses I toured in England last year, also Blenheim Palace.
