        I do believe this was my house in a past life😍 This is the absolute most beautiful. Best restoration to its former glory! I’ve always thought when I saw old Vic’s turned into solid white interior why buy an old house then? I have seen many homes now, thus is mine! If I am lucky enough to win the lotto this weekend, I would offer 20 million as is, lock stock and barrel. Tennessee is a beautiful state, one where my ancestors came from, where I lived as a teen, but this would be my forever home. I am stunned in awe with such beauty! I shall close my eyes now and dream this is mine, oh I would give the cars away. I would never leave this home. I’d love to see it covered in snow! Oh my, oh my, I think I’m sad I can’t live there! Would there happen to be any ghost stories?

    That floor lamp next to the staircase, does that style of lamp have a name?

      This lamp is known as an organ or piano lamp. It was originally oil and can be raised or lowered to best light the music.

    What a fantastic home! Every house I show my husband, he replies “Needs more porch space.” I’m going to show him this one! I love the decor. You get such a feeling of space and time in each room and it really tells a beautiful story. Thank you to the owner for sharing.

    Love this home. Thank you for keeping it as it was intended in the late 1800s. Beautiful. It truly is a collector’s dream.

    I’m going off topic for this site, but I love cars with fins. And interesting double-decker system in garage. I guess that’s one way to get more garage space (and be able to work under the car too!).

    Oh and that front door is fantastic!

    This very nearly brought me to tears, it is so lovingly decorated and perfectly beautiful. This is the home of my dreams. I cannot imagine ever leaving this gorgeous, perfect house.

    Wow! The front door is just lucious, and then…. well, I think I could spend all day just looking at all the neat stuff IN the house, as well as all the neat stuff of the house itself!

    And since the owner is here, I have a question: I would love to know (and maybe see a close-up of) the picture above the bobcat in the 10th picture. Is it a painting, or needlework? It’s awesome!

    • Mike Stallins says: 6 comments

      The hunt scene picture you refer to is an old needlework purchased years ago from a really sweet lady at a yard sale for eight dollars. You are most welcome to a close up but I don’t know how to get one to you.

        Mike, just send it to Kelly. She can post it here, or send it on to me. Thanks so much!

        And thanks to you Kelly *grin*

    Wonderful woodwork, staircase, front door, it is all a dream come true. Beautiful furnishings, would love to know the history of the owner’s collection. When I see homes such as this, one of my first thoughts is, where are they moving to and how will they proceed with packing all the contents etc.? This could be a museum in itself.

    This is a beautiful home with everything you’d want in a Queen Anne. It had me at the front door! Wonderful job on the restoration. I have to look at a few more times to see all of the beautiful furnishings and antiques.

    We live close to this home and have been it and toured every room, the owners have spared no expense to make it one fantastic home. The decorations are over the top and just wonderful. You feel like you are in a wealthy home at the turn of the century.

    What a wonderful time capsule! Some beautifully coordinated antiques, and really cool touches like the taxidermy peacock! I want to steal the idea for the green velvet and pink drapes.

    Beautiful and so well decorated. I’ve noticed most old homes that are presented here that are located in the South, have painted woodwork. This must be for some “practical reason”. Kudos to the owners for letting the beauty of the woodwork show through.

      Me too! I think if I moved in with our eclectic conglomeration of furniture the house would revolt!! This home is absolutely beautiful.

    What a delightful clutter. With a Continental in the shed and Cadalliac in the barn. Even a few mourning hair wreaths. Sure hope all that comes with it.

    Where is the 1923 Martin 00-45??? I’m sure it’s somewhere in this wonderful home. Cars are rocking too…

  21. John says: 49 comments

    Love the house, but to have a 59 Caddy on top of that, whoa! Now I’m missing the one I had and wanting a big old house- No sleep tonight. ( had a 94 Fleetwood, same color as the stablemate to the 59 too- doggone it)

    • Mike Stallins says: 6 comments

      And the “mystery car” on the lift is a really nice 1971 Cadillac Eldorado convertible. Sweet dreams. We bought this house from the family that built it and have become friends with the later generations. The brick garage was built when they got rid of the horses and got a Packard Twin Six. Such is intertwined with the structure itself.

        Good grief, you can’t get any weirder a coincidence. I had an olive green 71 Eldorado convertible many years ago. Honestly I was in a rush and hadn’t even seen it on the lift- the 59 was what hit me first,. Mine was a woodrose coupe. Anyway, this isn’t a car site, but I sense a kindred spirit. Good luck with the sale of the house.

    Mr. Stallins, your home is magnificent! The interior looks like a catalog of Victorian decorating. Perfection! I am absolutely in love with every picture, especially the bathroom. So cozy and warm. Your love of your home and the Victorian era are evident throughout. I am sorry you are leaving this incredible house, but you have definitely set the tone for the new owner to continue your labor of love.

    Wow…..just….Wow!!! This house gives me butterflies in my tummy! This is the house that dreams are made of. Thank you so much for sharing your home! This is the model for what we aspire to in our own restoration. Absolutely perfectly stunning. God Bless you Mike!!

    Thank you for sharing your house with us, Mr. Stallins. The house is beautiful. I’m wondering if visitors get confused as to which front door to use as there are three doors off the porch. The two story porch is epic by the way!

  25. LottieLottie says: 404 comments

    Oh my goodness! This house is absolutely incredible! Especially love the porch and music room!

    I’ll bet those matching screen doors are original: you’re sure lucky those survived, and in FAB original condition to boot. Love the Aesthetic period tile too. Nice! Wish I had a 65 Eldo convertible in my garage.

    So does the 59 Caddy and the old Lincoln come with the property? I’m not even sure where Winchester is, but I will move in…

    Did anyone call PBS and tell them their setting for the next Masterpiece Theatre is here!
    Ok, it was the stuffed Peacock that did me in. I can’t help but love it.
