Beautiful Blue Dreamhouse...

I just had to show you where I went a few days ago! They were having an open house in a little town about 30 minutes from me. I have always been fascinated by this house every time that I've seen it. I was so excited to find out that they were having an open house so that I could get to see the inside! I'm telling you...it is the most beautiful house! I wish that I could have taken pictures of the inside. I didn't think that they would let me. I didn't even ask. I know that they knew that I would never be able to afford a home like this.



It was built around 1880. It has over 5000 square feet. It has a formal dining room and a ladies' parlor and a gentleman's' parlor. It has a library and an office. The kitchen is to die for! It has white cabinets with black granite counter tops. Stained glass in the upper part of the windows in the kitchen. A huge master bedroom and bathroom! One room adjoining the master was turned into the biggest walk-in closet that I have ever seen! It has a den that has leaded glass windows across the top of the whole room and tons of built in bookshelves along the walls. The steeple or turret has little benches around it that the seats lift up and one could store games , toys, books, etc. for the kids. They said that is what the lady does that lives there. Her grandchildren love to sleep in the turret. The ceiling is painted to look like the sky. It is awesome!








It has a wood shop out back and a guest house that is adorable. (My kids would never want to leave home!) It also has a huge swimming pool behind the guest house. I just thought some of you would enjoy seeing and hearing about this beautiful home. When I look at these pictures, I can imagine Cindy from "My Romantic Home" living here. Cindy, if you read this let me know what you think! It is even "Blue".
The asking price is $485,000.00. Maybe I could win the lottery or something! I don't even play the lottery! LOL

Wow, that is beautiful! OMG...that's the price for a run -down condo here! 5,000 sq. feet? That house would cost a couple million in California! Thanks for sharing!

The house was awesome! It was even quite and peaceful outside, even though you in the middle of town. The guest house had a fireplace in the corner of the living room, the pool was huge, the workshop.....all I can say is MAN!! The husband had passed way and that is why the wife is selling the house. They had lived in it about 40 years. He was building a full size bed in his workshop from heart pine. What he had completed was fine. You can tell he was a perfectionist.
Take care,
Stevie
