Lovely house. You could use it for making films. Reminds me of some I seen..
Tomorrow ist time to start work after my holidays :-( I´m satisfied with the wheather we had in August. The main holidays in July rained away...

Relaxing on that porch would be pretty fine . . .

Every time I see one of these porches I think of the deep South and Scarlet O'Hara. Such charm!

I love the porches on these old houses but I wonder if they ever really get used anymore.

Spacious house and grounds, well captured. Shades of the "Southfork", from the tv series 'Dallas'

The columns help form a proper porch. The 2nd floor railing is great!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

serene, calm, peaceful...are words that come to mind. I adore old farmhouses, especially mine at Thistle Cove Farm, and am going to hate moving when it has to happen.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

There is nothing prettier for enhancing such a home with pillars, than ornamental trees...
Beautiful together!
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Oh, look at those two porches, one upstairs, one down. I hope they get used! I would use them.

These are what I call REAL pillars...not the fake kind where if you leaned against one it would topple over. What a beautiful home. It really does remind me of Savannah and Charleston. genie

That is a very pretty house. I like how it has trees all around it.

Mama Zen said...

Oh, beautiful!

Linda said...

There was a time when I would have loved to live in a place like that, but I'm over it now. I'd be happy in a cozy little bungalow. But I can still appreciate the beauty of this place and others like it.
