Next stop on our tour
Thursday, April 8, 2010
This home was one of my favorites it sits on Liberty street and not only was the home and garden charming but it felt quaint and personal. It felt like one of those homes that you could slip right into.
The master bedroom had really large windows that let in the morning sunshine and breath taking views of the city. You can see The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist , St Vincent's Academy, little shops, trolley cars and horse drawn carriages. The home owner had a sitting area on one end of the room where she works on her crewel embroidery ... which was a really pretty piece with sea shells on it.
The master bath was very spacious and how about that green paint color. It was very pretty in person.
There were 2 more bedrooms and another bath upstairs and a tiny little stair/ ladder that went to somewhere very special .. we just don't know to where. It had a sign on it that said ... Very private even our tour guide was itching to sneak up and see what was there ...lol
not sure why I didn't get a better shot of the kitchen it was filled with beautiful pieces of copper. See that painting ... it is of the home owner in her garden when it was in full bloom .
The garden had it all... This great seating area which sits up a level so you can view the entire garden while sitting under cover year around. The garden was completely closed in so it was very private.
it had little spaces filled with pots of flowers, ferns, greenery and isn't that monkey a cutie .. lol
herbs by the kitchen door...
and how about this butterfly bench ... OH my goodness this bench was stunningly beautiful the patina was gorgeous it is huge as you can see if you look back at the painting in the kitchen .. and do you see the little one on the side table it's a planter ..
the lanterns, plantings, paths and seating areas made this courtyard garden not only charming but one that you could tell the home owner truly loves and spends a lot of time in ..
more of our tour later so stop back by
