old house dreams

Emily Oster

If you dream of living in an old home than this site is for you. Old House Dreams catalogues old house real estate listing from all over the country. Its inventory is huge and with the option to filter by criteria such as state, architectural style, size etc. it is easy to find properties to lust over. Here are just a few that caught my eye. 

1840 Italianate - Canandaigua, New York

This historic cobblestone home is located in the town my Dad grew up in so I have an easy time picturing how amazing it could be. It looks to be last updated in the 1970s so it definitely needs so work. It features 5 bedrooms and 1 bath, 4 fireplaces, many of the original moldings and trim and sits on 2 acres. Originally listed for $149,900, this property sold for $139,900. 

1810 Federal - Machipongo, Virginia

This one is a true fixer upper but it has such great potential. I love the scale and massing of the exterior and the interior looks to have much of the original character and detailing. Priced at $450,000 this home has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, is 2700 square feet and is located on 60 acres. 

1805 Federal - Martinsburg, West Virginia

If you love the idea of living in an old home but not the idea of a fixer upper than this home is for you. A "Certified Rehabilitation Project" this sandstone house is 3 bed and 3.5 baths, has updated modern systems, sits on 65+ acres with three ponds and has incredible views. Its listed for $699,999.

1800 - Oxford, North Carolina

Another move in ready home, this property has the most amazing approach. Just look at the aerial of the drive in! Amazing features of this home include 12ft ceilings, beautiful outbuildings, original hardwoods and 8 fireplaces. It is listed for $599,000.

garden pinners to follow

Emily Oster

In researching Wednesday's post, I discovered Hendy Curzon. A garden and landscape design firm in the U.K. with a truly beautiful portfolio of work. I attempted (somewhat in vain) to not get too distracted on their site and instead make it a Friday morning treat to myself. So for the past hour or so I have been in gardener la-la land dreaming of what I can do with our outdoor space. 

I will say that I find their site a bit cluttered and while totally worth the browse, their Pinterest page is a much more direct approach to see lovely garden images. I am especially fond of their board called Cut Flower Garden } Outside In

I also have to credit the Hendy Curzon's Pinterest page for introducing me to Floret Flower Farm. Floret is a family farm and floral design studio located in Washington's Skagit Valley. Specializing in unique and heirloom cut flower varieties, the farm maintains a beautiful website, blog and Pinterest account.  Floret is also a 2014 winner of Martha Stewart's American Made Contest which I have featured here with some past winners being Nordt Family FarmPaloma's Nest and Hey Baby Craft Co.. I would highly recommend checking out Floret for any future brides as well as anyone interested in growing a cut flower garden. And if you are in the Pacific Northwest, they hold workshops which I, for one, would love to attend. Below are some images of their work and life on their farm. Happy spring weekend!
