    That is one seriously fabulous house!
    I sincerely hope that the buyer isn’t a moron that rips out all that gorgeousness to put in a bunch of ‘trendy’ junk.

    I’m in love with the bathroom sinks and those fabulous kitchens, but I was really surprised to see the Frigidaire Flair countertop flip down stove that was very similar to mine. This has to be the best house yet.

    Best house yet! I would replace the ceiling lamps in the kitchen and dining area with sputniks. Love, love, love the downstairs! What fun for a family and guests!

    So much to love. I was tickled by the striped tile floor in the last bathroom as I’ve never seen that done before. It looks like a rug at first glance. I just love the original asbestos tile in the lower level!

    Anyone else notice that the bench seating shown in the first few interior photos is actually a built in planter with pillows placed on top? Looking at the first interior photo I was so confused by why the base of a bench seat would be made of brick….like, wouldn’t that hurt bare legs? But then in the next photo it became clear that it used to be a planter next to that amazing screen. Why cover that feature up? Weird…
