Open House Tuesday!

It's open house Tuesday again and as seems to be my habit I've found a stunning historic home that is completely remodeled, in the perfect location and is probably my most recent dream home. If I'm going to be completely honest, I'm a bit of a sucker for this style of home. You can walk to downtown franklin *or* the factory from here. Could you imagine waking up on a Saturday morning and walking to get fresh, organic produce at the Saturday morning farmer's market? A girl can dream, right? But you'd probably like the know the particulars. It is a 4 bedroom ,4 bath, 2 half bath, 4,111 sq. ft. home built in 1930, and is listed at $1, 295,000 you can find the agent's listing here. I usually try to find a house that has a virtual tour as well but this house was so beautiful that I made an exception. So here we go...I love dining rooms with beautiful fireplaces. It makes me think of family dinners at Thanksgiving and Christmas...and snow...The beautifully redone kitchen. I doubt that there's anything historically accurate about it *but* it's beautiful nonetheless. Another view of the kitchen.A greatroom dining combo, maybe?Beautiful staircase and gorgeous hardwood floors.I'm not sure why there's a picture of the bannister...it's pretty though.The quad-shot of the bedroom. I actually hate it when realtors do this. It makes it really hard to see. I do see a beautiful claw foot tub though. And the gorgeous back porch with the beautiful back yard. The lot size isn't listed but a beautiful secluded lot, this close to downtown is a great find.
So what do you think? Is this kind of property for you? And I also want to know what you think of Open House Tuesday. Do you enjoy it or would you rather hear about my exciting life on Tuesdays like every other day? I asked Travis what he thought and he said he'd read my blog even if I have boring Wednesdays, garlic Thursdays and onion Fridays...well, he's not reading on onion Fridays...I don't know garlic Thursdays sound kind of fun...I could probably come up with something.

I like Open House Tuesday. I love looking at houses and you have found some really great houses thus far.

I hadn't been to my computer today to check in. As I approached, it suddenly struck me that it's Open House Tuesday, and I was excited to see what you had in store for me.

Tracy, you always make my day- crazy! I love garlic too...the smell makes Trav kind of nauseous.

I can't wait to see the trunk! Kris will be home in October, right? You're almost there!

Well, I'm sure you can guess that my vote would go for more Open House Tuesdays.

This house is gorgeous. I like how they put a fireplace in the dining room. I've always wanted a DR with a fireplace in it. It would be so cozy to eat by the fire. -Julia
