parade of homes - house #4

Get ready for the adjectives, people.  This last house was absolutely spectacular.
It was priced at $925,000 before the upgrades, and we were in awe.

When you walked in the front door, there was a sitting room to the right with a beautiful fireplace and tray ceilings.

Right behind the sitting room was a beautiful dining room.  This room had huge
windows looking out into the backyard.

From the dining room, you walk into the amazing kitchen.  Loving the vertical subway tile and the espresso cabinets. Dreaming...

Here's something I'm actually trying to talk Matthew into.  I love dark espresso cabinets with a white island...you may be seeing a version of this in our house tour soon.

The next room was absolutely breathtaking.  I have never seen a more beautiful room.  Unfortunately, it was about 6pm, and the light of the setting sun kept me from getting pictures that do this room justice.  Silly point and shoot.
I am talking 24 foot ceilings paired with huge, never-ending windows, paired with 24 foot curtains.  There was a beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace; not to mention the beams on this beautiful ceiling.
From the living room, you head upstairs where at the top of the stairs there was this very smart desk/command center.  Can you imagine how great this would be to step away to pay bills, write a blog post, peruse Facebook?
Also at the top of the stairs, was this linen closet.  I would love to have these doors on a linen closet.  I just picture beautiful plush towels and blankets, along with dark woven baskets.
The kid's rooms were adorable, too.  Great green stripes and a bright purple closet.

The other girl's room was pink and brown and would have been the room of my dreams 2 13 years ago.
The boy's room was also really really neat, but again, my point and shoot couldn't fight the terrible lighting.

How easy would this be to achieve with a curtain with large grommets hung upside down and cut off.  And check out this wood treatment on the walls.
Headboard with cargo pockets.  So cool!
Walking from the kid's rooms to the master, we get another shot of the amazing living room.  Not only was the ceiling amazing, but check out the horizontal moulding on the walls.

View from the hallway (with the linen closet to the right, desk/command center behind me) into the master bedroom.  The floors were beautiful.
The master bedroom was nice, but kind of a let down compared to the rest of the house.  It has a fireplace between the sitting area and bedroom, and for some reason, the TV was on top of this...not really sure about that one.
This mirror was about 5 feet wide and 7 feet tall.  See that TV? Strange, huh?

The master bath was exquisite.
Check out the wallpaper.
I failed to snap a picture because of the lighting, but the master closet off the bath had so many different custom hanging bars and shelves and drawers galore; not to mention it was all a beautiful dark wood.

Heading back downstairs, we checked out the home office to the left of the front door...  
...and the most amazing mudroom.  It had the first section right by the garage door, with hooks.  Sorry so blurry! But they had such cool moulding in here, with a light green on the bottom, and dark blue up top.  it was really neat.
The second space was the laundry room.
And on the other side was your sink and extra fridge.  So Smart!
Right outside this room, before the living room, are the stairs to the basement.  Not your typical basement stairway, right? Again, I didn't take a picture of the basement, but I'm not kidding, the basement had 9-10 foot ceilings, and it was HUGE.
And, let's take one more look at the amazing living room...Ahhh.
We had an amazing time touring these houses on the parade of homes, and were super exhausted when we were all done!
