    1860 Carolina farm house

    What a national treasure!

  3. Of all that is impressive about this beautiful house, the way its axis is aligned to flood the house with daylight is outstanding.

    It would be interesting to see photos of the schoolhouse from Shilo.

      It’s so much brighter than a lot of the other houses of this age. I’m not usually a fan of this era as the ceilings are low and they feel gloomy, but I can never pass up a yellow house and this one breaks the stereotype on the inside. Loved the lily quilt upstairs too.

    My favorite era…..I’m totally enthralled by anything 18th century. This property is beautiful in its scale, condition and location. Not far from Princess Anne and Salisbury, both with lovely historic houses. The paneling is unusual….the restoration is superb…LOVE this house….!!!

    1875 Limestone house
    Langeais, Loire Valley,

    very interesting panelling in almost every room of this house, beautiful. I wonder when they date back to, if they’re original or if the house was more rustic at first and then gentrified.

    This is just a colonial beauty on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and the price? Wowzers! If only it backed up to the Wicomico river!
