  1. This is lovely even in the super white state. They have some great pieces of furniture too.

  2. Do you think this house may have been a dogtrot initially?

    This is a beautiful house. I love the stairs under the porch

  3. Everything is perfect in this house…A breath of fresh air.
    Classic and classy. Loved the folding footstool by the high back wing chair.

    • I liked the footstool too. The one by the bed was lovely and I think is looked adjustable too with the slide out option.

  4. Lovely house, discipline in the design. The white must be for sale purposes. Guest quarters go nicely with the older house; more often people make them all modern & jarring next to original architecture. Slate floor in the kitchen is an attractive touch too.

    • As do I. It’s very calming and serves like a museum backdrop to let the architecture and furnishings shine.

  5. What’s wrong with white? It’s very refreshing and a great way to update an old house without running the layout or structure. There’s nothing worse than that. Absolutely love this house!

  6. Love this style but thought it might have crown molding, unless due to climate wasnt a good thing? Beautiful home, anyone know why the upper wall in the parlor is bumped out, maybe HVAC etc ? If it is I can understand but not in love with it. I went through three companies to come up with a good idea to hide all of it without altering the structure more than necessary. Got to have a/c here. I like the stairway on the back porch, but only one, the help or why I wonder. So glad this has been preserved.

  7. There’s a fabulous single wide just down the street plus you have the elementary school as your neighbor. Looks like a pretty town. Very nice house. What doe you call the structure in the back yard? Classy! And the bell in the back is pretty cool as well. I wonder how you prevent egress from the outside steps?

  8. I don’t know what y’all are talking about in too much white. So light and clean and bright. I’m in the “this is perfect” camp…..

  9. I think white works fine for Greek Revival.

    The problem creeps in when you have folk slapping white paint onto Victorian pocket doors and Craftsman built-ins. Here it looks clearly intended – or they’d have painted over the brickwork and tiled the wood floor in the bathroom. My opinion anyway.

  10. White is a good idea … you can love it or paint it, and it’s easy to paint over white, it’s a lovely lovely house!

  11. An outdoor eating spot is a must in the deep south and this interpretation with the classic lines and fountain is a knock out. What a lovely surprise to see how well it fits in style with the home.
