You guys know how much I love crashing my neighbors houses, so when we got an email a few weeks back about volunteering for the bi-annual Trinity Park Home Tour in exchange for some free home tour tickets – I was all over it. Some civic goodness and some jaw dropping houses all rolled into one afternoon, it was almost more than I could take.
Of all the homes we toured, you better bet I had a favorite. It just happened to be the first one we went through and it was fine. The details on these homes were absolutely out of the ballpark.
All of the homes we went through were property’s that had been extensively renovated. Many we’re well over 100 years old and they all just exuded so much character.
This house had a fireplace in virtually every room. This one in the Living Room was one of my favorites – don’t you just love that color on the tile?
Without a doubt, my favorite room in this house was the kitchen. This is a glimpse of it off of the oh so gorgeous butler’s pantry (and you know I love a good butler’s pantry).
Now I know y’all would be wanting an up close detail shot of this beauty and it does not disappoint. Between that wine cooler and those gorgeous counters, I pretty much want to put this lovely looker in my pocket.
Here is a view of the kitchen, so you can see the whole kit and kaboodle. I love how they mixed marble counters on the periphery and put in a soapstone counter on the island.
One of my favorite details in the kitchen was a built-in bench they had added in under the window. A kitchen can be so nice to hang out in, but it’s often short on seating, so that’s a perfect solution for reworking the space to me!
Ok, one more shot of this room. Check out this amaze-balls detail with the exposed brick in the corner of the room. Loving the open shelving, too. Swoon.
Downstairs, the home was renovated throughout, with large and open rooms. This is a shot of their dining space, which connects the living room and kitchen.
Upstairs they had a cozy Master, that led into a fully renovated bath and walk-in closet. This house was full with lots of people touring it at the time, so this is the only shot I got of that room. You can see another fireplace, peaking in on the corner. How cool would it be to have a fireplace in your bedroom??
In addition to the Master Suite, the upstairs also had another finished bathroom that was a jaw dropper. Check out this beauty.
Not going to lie, going through these amazing houses kinda sorta made me want to burn my house to the ground and start over. Not really, but kinda! Most of the homes we toured are $1 million properties, so I guess I can’t really get too jellsy about it. If I win the lotto though, you’ll know where to find me!
