Farm Tour #6

This past weekend I took a tour of this beautiful
two story farmhouse for sale, sitting on 2 acres.
Priced reduced from $159,900 to $149,000

It was amazing.  Cozy.
The house was spotless and that is very important to me.
Don't want to worry about spiders and bugs.  I just don't do creepy bugs well.
While I realize that most farmhouses have to contend with mice in the spring and fall,
that does not bother me as much as creepy bugs you cannot control.
So this very clean house was a bonus.
Plus most of the rooms are painted white, exactly what I was wanting.  Another bonus.
Let's have a look around.  If you follow me on Facebook you have seen a few of these pics.

The cozy gallery kitchen.
I would change out the ceiling fan.
In front of the window put a pretty white table, two chairs and hang a long lace curtain.

Living room

The dining room.
My favourite room.  A very large room, so much decorating potential.

Check out the high baseboards.
The door to the left leads into the kitchen.

One of the bedrooms.
There are three.  This room was my fave, the second largest.
Not the master bedroom, but I might take this one because it was snug and comfortable.
Very cozy, overlooks the front yard.
For whatever reason, I like my bedroom to look out the front of the house.

The upstairs bath.
Very pretty, very country.


Heading outside, we have a sunroom.
Another favourite room.  Awesome for a warm summer evening.

The old barn.  Needs some repair to be useable.
But I love everything about it.

I dare say I would buy this property just for this old beauty!

The present owners started placing animals posts around the entire property.
A definite plus for me.  All that I would have to do is install railing.
There is a long garage on the property that I could convert to two horse stalls.
So I would be all set to bring in the horses.

Check out the vegetable garden to the left.

A chicken coop.  Another bonus.
Don't know one thing about raising and maintaining chickens, but will love to learn.

So there you have it, farm tour #6.
I am seriously considering this home to purchase.
Just going to spend a day or two weighing out the pros and cons.
Daughter Rachel wants to view it, so I might book a showing next weekend and go through again with her.

  2. So bright! Love your mirrored wall rack. Great tour!

  3. That one has pretty much everything. Love the old barn and the home itself is very charming.

  4. It does sound like you have mentally moved in already! I am not surprised, it is great.

  5. Omigosh Diane - how utterly charming!! I love it!

  6. Hi Diane. This farmhouse is really lovely and has a lot of possibilities. The yard is really pretty with mature trees and the price is really good too. I like the kitchen and porch. It's a big decision for you. All the best!

  7. A lovely property! Blessings on your decision. Kathy

  8. What a charming well maintained house and the hardwood floors look to be in great condition. Certainly looks like a winner and that sunroom is definitely a bonus. I'd say start packing...

  9. Love it! Thank you for sharing. You are one of the features tonight at The Sunday Showcase. Here is the link so you can check out your feature. Hope to see your prettiness again at the bash tomorrow! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  10. Wow - great condition - pretty much move in ready. You could tell the home was very well maintained. I love all of the rooms, so warm & inviting, especially the sunroom. Also love the bath with the high beadboard trim. If all checks out - this one seems like a keeper!!! Good luck!!!

  11. Really cute !! I agree with you ..........I always try to keep homes kept clean (bug free and all) on our short list when home shopping :) Best wishes ox

  12. I'm sorry I was late catching up on your blog! There's been so much work at the Cottage, plus feedbruner was down, so it made it difficult for me! So I missed that tour. I love the house. Have you taken any decision about it? Has your daughter visited it?

  13. The house and land look wonderful! My daughter and her family are also looking for some farm land/acreage.
