This historic, picturesque property is surprisingly on the market in the Glen estate area. Built in the year 1750, there’s absolutely no shortage of character within and surrounding the home. The old charm and countryside feel pops out at you just when looking at the pictures of this beautifully crafted home. It was a no brainer to feature this property as this week’s blog post - as I am getting a serious design crush on the home and I’m sure most of you will too after seeing these shots!
The amount of green space enveloping this home is a valuable quality that would attract any nature lover when touring the site. The landscape provides an array of experiences to enjoy no matter where you are within the vast 2.25 acres of this land. Sunbathing by the creek, walking barefoot along the rocks, or siping coffee under the trees with that sunlight sprinkling through the shade - every one of these makes this an oasis I would never want to leave. I mean how many people can say that they have their very own arched stone bridge right in their backyard!
abundance of character
Once you’re done drooling over the landscaping, head on inside where the old charm continues with even more character covering every space of the house. With 18th century wood work, exposed beams in almost all rooms, detailed wall trimmings, brick fireplaces, and wall and ceiling paneling throughout, the interior of this home is one of a kind. Cover the space with white accents to highlight the original beams or bring a touch of color and pattern through use of wallpaper, such as the existing bathroom design, the possibilities are endless to create a beautiful and seamless juxtaposition of modern and rustic charm.
When I first saw all the beautiful shots of the landscaping, I thought I would just want to pitch a tent outside and never leave; but with the views you get from the inside, there’s no need to! Entertain your guests in the 12 foot ceiling living room with breathtaking views making you feel as though you are sitting right outside under the trees - or the best of the views, in my opinion, waking up in any one of these bedrooms every morning with a direct view to the outdoors…talk about the perfect motivation to get you out of bed and getting going to the outside world!
4 for 1 offer
This property doesn’t just offer a historic home with gorgeous land surrounding the house - it also provides two outbuildings: a storage shed and guest suite/studio. It’s clear that the secondary house wasn’t just an afterthought either, it was designed with just as much character and rustic touch as the main home! Turn that space into a guest house, an art or dance studio, a play den, a large office…with just a little personalized design, this added space can be distinctly catered to you and your needs!
