Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on our new home the other day! My wish certainly did come true.
So excited to take you on a little tour today and Friday. This is the front of our new home. It is a Dutch Colonial built in 1927, a hop, skip and a jump from Scituate Harbor.
Shall we step inside?!?
I fell in love with this home the moment I walked in the entry. The wood work, which was milled in Maine, is amazing.
I also fell in love with all the crystal knobs; they are on every door in the home.
Here’s an angle from the other way. Sorry about the lighting (I took this one at night during our walk through the night before we moved in):
Through the columns of the living room is the formal dining room complete with a china cabinet.
Here’s a view from within the dining room (sorry it is a little blurred – was running around quickly trying to get some shots of the house with no furniture in it!).
Through the twin French doors is a beautiful sunroom which will act as the boys’ playroom. Plenty of shelves for toys, dress up, legos and games.
Straight through the entry way is the kitchen. You can also get to the kitchen from the dining room. The kitchen is really a fun space and has sooooo much storage. Something I’m not used to.
All the appliances have been updated and the rosewood floor was installed by the previous owners.
This china cabinet was salvaged when the previous owners put a half bath with laundry off the kitchen. I love how it looks in there! (Sorry about the night shot)
The half bath is teeny. It is a 4 x 4 room with a cute corner toilet and corner sink. The previous owners told us it took 13 weeks to get this custom made toilet.
We’ve already spent so much time in this room having meals and enjoying the view of the garden. Under the rug is a green wooden floor. We are thinking we may need to uncover them at some point.
Would also love to put in a sliding glass door here!
Through that door is the deck complete with fragrant wisteria and huge buzzing bumble bees.
The boys have loved watching the bees gather pollen. So many fun places to explore in this new home:
Be sure to stop by Friday and I’ll take you upstairs. Until then I’ll continue unpacking 🙂
