First I would like to introduce you to our Realtors. This is Lauretta and Fitz Sthreshley. They work with Keller Williams Realty in Hendersonville, NC. They were the Realtors I used to sell my current home as well as house hunt for my new home. I highly recommend them!!
On to the tour!! You can click on any picture to enlarge. Here is the front door. I love the transom windows. You will see them throughout the house.
When you walk in the front door, the stairway is straight ahead and leads you up to the second floor. We will go there some other day.
To the left of the stairway is the formal living room. I am changing all of the colors in the house. This one is a muddy olive brown.
To the right of the stairway is a matching room. This is the formal dining room. I can't believe they painted over the paneling around the bottom of the room. Both the dining room and formal living room have bay windows.
This is a picture taken looking into the kitchen eating area, with another bay window.
This is the family room. I love the built ins around the fireplace, but the TV opening is too small for our tv so we will have to reconfigure that.
Another shot of the family room.
Above the family room is a mezzanine. I am thinking of turning that into a library/reading nook.
The kitchen below. We are painting the kitchen cabinets and putting up a tile back splash. We will also change out the lights hanging over the breakfast bar. For some reason they put floor tile on the back side of the breakfast bar. We will remove that. The corbels that are under the bar at too small, so we will replace them too. I would love to find some vintage ones at a architectural salvage store.
Another shot of the kitchen. I am so excited that this house has natural gas to cook on. I have used electric for the last several years, but I LOVE cooking with gas.
It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the house is so filthy! The floors might need to be refinished, it is hard to tell until they are cleaned.
Well, that's it for today...come back tomorrow for more pictures!
