Humor Me

So every now and then I like to dream a little and peruse the real estate listings in Franklin for a big gorgeous home on a big ol' piece of land.

And then I stumbled across this insanely cool home on 12 wooded acres out in Leipers Fork, an area where Jason and I dream of living someday if we can ever afford it.

How amazing is this house?
Walkway out to the garage? Not sure if that's the garage or a workshop.
Huge wrap around porches. I'm drooling over those plantation shutters.
A modest but beautiful stairway with gorgeous molding and trim.
I'm dying over the clawfoot tub & his & her vanities in the master bath!
Um hello dream kitchen. I could make all kinds of amazing food there while looking out that incredible window!
I mean seriously, do you see that window over the farm sink? Geeeezzzzz... And that's the family room just beyond with french doors to the back porch.
Another view of the family room with the kitchen of paradise beyond.
A cute bedroom with his & her closets and a fireplace between. LOVE. Someday I dream of having his & her closets, don't ask me why because I can't answer you.
I see built-in bookcases and is that a window seat in the background? Sigh........
More built-in bookcases!! This house was meant for us. Darn that pending contract.
From the entry, a view into the formal living room and hallway down to the family room & kitchen.
Another view of the formal sitting/living room. The hardwoods throught out the house are drool-worthy.
And this looks to be a playhouse, but I would make it a guest cottage, for all of our wonderful friends and family to visit us. :-)
I mean is it just not the cutest on the inside with the arched ceilings?
4 Bedrooms, 4 Full Baths, 3 Half Baths, 4 Fireplaces, A Playhouse/Studio ect... all for $800,000. Which is A DEAL for all this house on all that land. Wow. Someday...someday.
