Amazing Playhouse!



You guys. I can’t…I can’t even. That playhouse. I mean, the rest of the house is amazing, but that little playhouse kitchen. I would just sit in there all day with Alex. I don’t think I would even use the rest of the house.

What is your favorite detail?

    Amazing house, but I’m struck by what looks like terrazzo walls in the master bath. Also, I’d love to get my hands on some of the furniture left in the house.

    The playhouse is just over the moon. Whoever got to play in it has to be the luckiest kid.

    I have to agree 1000%. JUst put me in that playhouse, and I’m good to go all day. You don’t even have to check on me periodically. You can have th rest of the place. Just let me come upstairs for the occasional meal, and maybe check my mail, OK? Otherwise, you know where to find me!!!!!!! (Seriously; somebody call Ripley’s about that playhouse! Talk about every little girl’s dream!!)
