  1. I was shocked to see Living Vintage’s home for sale! I’ve been an admirer for a long while, that center hallway is my favorite ever in the history of center halls. Her decorating style is awesome too, something I tremendously fail at.

    I did not add those gray borders around the pic and since the copyright is stuck on it, had to post as they were. Check out the LivingVintageco.com link in the “Source Links” up top for better quality photos.

    • It’s kind of strange, all posts on the blog and Facebook stop on July 21. Something must have happened. I hope they’re okay.

      • We are having raging wildfires in Northern California and the Facebook server, which is here, has been going in and out today. This has been our only way to keep in touch with loved ones. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

        Back to reality, after taking a much needed break from the smoke, on OHD. Thank you Kelly, for giving us a place to escape, if even for a few minutes. 💖

  2. I’m guessing by the width of the center hall that this actually was originally a dogtrot plan built in a vernacular Greek Revival style. The current interior design works well with the spirit of the house.

    • The owner have a blog where they told about their restauration, and yes they discovered it used to be a dogtrot (that’s also why it’s written dogtrot on the floor plan). They’ve made an amazing job with the house, sad to see it’s for sale, i love binge-reading their reno story.

  3. I’m making an appointment to see this home the first of next week! This is exactly what we have been looking for!


  5. I love this house. My husband has been talking about moving south for quite some time now to get away from the Pennsylvania winters. This would be perfect. Plus it has 10 acres. We now have 12.5 acres and I didn’t want to give that up. I’m showing this to him asap.
