This home built in 1863 is “country” all the way – but I still loved it…
I think it’s the internal colours!
OK, it’s not the fanciest home I’ve blogged about, but I have the feeling that this place would be amazing in real life… (as opposed to the blogosphere!)
This home is currently on the market for over $2 Million Big Ones.
