Here in the South we have a New Year’s Day tradition: eat black eyed peas for luck; eat greens for money. Well I did my part! And, with luck, if my
Then I might just be able to buy this
This house recently came on the market in my area (and yes, the car is always parked out front). I had missed a garden club tour there and always regretted it. So, I hopped over to the realtor’s website.
According to the realtor’s website the house is over 10,000 square feet of “true English mansion” that delivers a “hit to the senses”. The “great hall” was inspired by European cathedrals and has a hand carved beam system and staircase. On a personal note, I wonder if the antlers are real. I haven’t allowed animal parts on my walls since I concluded in the first year of marriage that “for better or worse” did not include taxidermy. There six fireplaces in the house.
No self-respecting castle would have a butler’s pantry that wasn’t filled with pewter .
The kitchen is a dream….look at that tile, all that counter space, and the copper sink! I love the windows…still got the cathedral theme going on.
I suppose this is the master bedroom. The house has four bedrooms, In a house this size, I’d expect more…but then I wouldn’t expect the movie room, weight room or English pub that it has.
This is where the information gets a little murky. The house lists 4.4 baths and 4 partial baths. I assume this is the master bath…see the dressing room down the hall? I know what a half bath is…even a 3/4 bath….what is a 4/10 bath ?? :) Look at that cabinetry. I think that is inlaid tile in the center.
The back is as majestic as the front.
I’d settle for just this gorgeous statue and waterfall, but if you find a pot of gold and need an English castle….call me…I know where to find one!
