the one touring our house o' dreams

Welcome to a virtual tour of our new home! I'm excited to finally show you all the rooms and share what we are excited about and LOVE about the house the Lord has blessed us with.

Our home is a 1959 Partial Brick home. It's ranch style, with a basement. It's on a little over 1/3 acre of land, and backs up to a private entrance to the Raleigh Greenway. 

The front of our beautiful home!
We love the (somewhat overgrown) daisies, trees, and plants. I love the rain barrel! One day we hope to add a front porch so that we can interact with our neighbors more.

I LOVE our mailbox :) it's so old-fashioned and personal. 

Also LOVE our lamp post. Hello Narnia.

Sweet little birdhouse on one of my favorite trees in our front yard.

Backing up

The right side of our lot has lots of plants. We'd like to one day dig some of these up to add a little extra driveway space.

When you walk in, you enter through the beautiful, cheerful, naturally lit sunroom!
Love: the vaulted ceilings, all the hooks (mudroom-esque), 2 doors and 5 windows, ceiling fan, surprisingly big/useful space. 

Looking from the living room into the sunroom.

The living room! Love: the BIG windows (!), the wall color (was planning to paint this room gray but I'm really loving the blue), the gorgeous hardwoods, big/open feeling.

The dining room. Love: All the windows/natural light, bay window (we are building a window seat!), perfect size, dimmer light switch :)

Looking from the dining room into the kitchen

The kitchen! Love: gas stove (!!), beautiful white cabinets, old stained glass window cabinet, butcher block counter top (that little square), gray walls, leads to the deck, cute pantry, chalkboard door.

The hallway to the bedrooms/office/basement

Little nook outside the three bedrooms - see that square on the ceiling? That's an original house fan that homes used to use to cool off their entire home. We've heard it's AWESOME. Obviously it doesn't work still but we want to get it fixed because it's such a cool older home feature.

Master Bedroom. Love: ceiling fans in every bedroom, cute old fashioned shutter blinds, deceptively large closets, hardwoods, attached bathroom.

Master bath (it's pink!! :) ). Love: the shower head is tall enough from Rob, great light, the smaller sink is making me be very tidy, having our own bathroom, linen closet.

The office. Love: the color (actually only Rob loves the color...), plenty of natural light, potential to make over the already existing desk, manly ceiling fan, a place for all our papers finally.

Guest bedroom. (This is going to be my pretty room!)

Cutest hall closet. We actually have three hall closets but this one's the cutest.

Back yard!! Love: all the green!, big new deck, so much space, all the critters (so far: 2 frogs, cardinals, squirrels, other birds, and lightening bugs!), private access to the greenway, a shed, so much potential!

Basement!! Love: all the unused/unfinished space, groovy floor, that red carpet (jk), surprising amount of natural light, potential!

Guest bathroom. Love: having another full bathroom, cute little white cabinet, made alot of the space, potential.

Thanks for stopping by! We are so grateful for our first little house o' dreams!

  1. Congratuolations Nicole and Rob!!! Also, those ceiling fans are THE BOMB! We had one in our house growing up because most of New England does not have central air, and it was wonderful. Especially on summer nights :-)
