Folks, I’m totally smitten with this 1831 ‘Greek Revival’ restoration and its envy-inducing interior.
Sometimes– actually, lots of times (because of where we live), we get to show amazing homes. It’s so much fun to show and sell a showplace. But, don’t get me wrong, please – I love showing all homes. Period. But, yes, there are occassional properties that just jump out from the crowd and leave me thinking … “Hmmm, if my client doesn’t buy it, I will totally attempt to convince my husband that we should live here.”
You know, those kinds of places. It’s an inherent job risk and side effect of being a Realtor®.
So recently, I was really wanting to move to Pulaski, TN. Scroll on for some serious eye candy and you’ll see why.
An antique stone baptismal font greets visitors upon entry.
The formal living room just off the entry foyer showcases the original, hand-carved mantel.
The kitchen is a fusion of past and present. Original wood siding and ceilings. Windows restored with original glass. Marble counters.
Plus, a commercial gas stove and gorgeous marble sink.
A view of the family room view peeking in from the kitchen. I love the exposed beam ceiling painted white.
This is part of the original log home, with wide plank hardwoods and a fireplace converted to gas.
One of two loft bedrooms.
The 50-foot dining hall. My favorite. And I don’t even cook!
My favorite deserves another view.
Okay, maybe one more. I love the layers of art and furnishings in this home.
Leaving the dining hall into the master retreat area. A smaller circa 1800s home was added to the back side of the main home providing more space.
This dreamy master bedroom features two expansive his/hers closets (a smart reno move!)
And how about the woodburning fireplace?
The spa-like master bath. There are two vanities, jetted tub, oversized shower.
Upstairs loft bedroom number two.
Did I mention the New Orleans style courtyard with brick patio and Italian fountain, accessible from the dining hall? I can only imagine its beauty in spring blooming season! I could settle in with some friends for an afternoon tea. Imagine the possibilities for entertaining.
BONUS — an art or music studio, home office, guest house, man cave — endless possibilities for this 672 SF of detached space.
The potting shed, affectionately labeled ‘Hen House’ out back is constructed of old parts from the original barn and structure.
And there’s still a barn on this gorgous 4.4 (apx) acre lot.
This home is still available, as I haven’t been able to convince my family that we should move.
And our buyer clients contracted an equally impressive property with more land (30 acres) to fit their dreams.
What features in a home make you swoon? Do you swoon over the irreplaceable charm offered by historic homes? Or do you prefer shiny and new, requiring no more work than just turning the key to the front door?
