On Tuesday, I shared a tour of a neighborhood with small homes designed for empty-nesters.
Today, I'm sort of sharing the same thing.
Only this house (similar to the one above) is more than double the size and price of the other "old folks'" homes.
It had a small central gathering spot...but no boule/bocce court. If you have close to a million bucks to spend on a house, then you're probably not going to hang out with the other old-timers playing lawn games. You're too busy playing with your money.
Again, the attention to detail was amazing. Gorgeous styling from Ethan Allen, with a central theme of blues, whites and grays. I wish I could've taken more photos, but the house was packed and people were not kind to the old broad with the camera, so I had to sneak all these photos. (And all the guys associated with the house were watching the Panthers game, and they refused to move aside for me to take a picture, so yeah.)
The finishes chosen for this house were perfect. I just love this tile backsplash behind the stove and the chandelier in the dining room.
My second-favorite part of this house was the Master Suite, and all I kept thinking was "Shirley would love this!" It had Shirley written all over it.
Another look at "Shirley's" room.
The master bath was gorge--that wall paper!!
The guest room...
But my favorite part of the house was the outdoor space and back entry:
This is the back door. The floor is a laminate that looks like chippy wood. This space leads into an all-purpose room with some very cool features:
Dog crate and bowls, a farmhouse sink and open shelving. The granite countertop is for your projects!! And do you see over on the right?
A built-in space for wrapping paper!
The back door leads out to a great patio space (and my pictures are crazy because of the strong sunlight--everything came out either waaaay too bright or in full shadow) with a covered area, a lounging area with a fountain, and a fireplace for cool weather gatherings.
Carrying on the theme of blue-and-white, the gate to the side alley was "Carolina" blue.
It was a gorgeous house with lovely features, but I think I'd rather play boule.
