A Bit of Small Town Eye-Candy….

A bit North East of Dallas lies a small town that has AMAZING Older homes…the kind of old homes with History and Character that get you thinking about commuting long distance just so you have the pleasure of weekends in the country at a Bed n Breakfast called ‘Yours’.

I stumbled on such a house today and thought about punching numbers on the calculator.

Notice the front porch is screened in for enjoying those cool summer evenings sans mosquitoes.

This is the balcony off the Master bedroom upstairs

Here is the original wood stair case. There is another stair case, most probably in the back of the home. The front door looks original too.

The 4th bedroom, one of 5, is located on the third floor. Look at the old wood and the old windows. I would have that painted white in a heart beat and a window seat would be where those treadmills are. That blue carpet would be gone and wood floors would be polished. An old iron bed, lots of pillows, sheers hung at the windows. And spring nights would be spent reading then dreaming as cool breezes wafted through.

It sets on over an acre, backed by lush trees.

Looks quaint in the height of summer as it does when snow whispers into North Texas.

Photos from over a century ago…

A piece of the past. This humble Lady certainly merits a bit of time with the calculator and cup of hot tea, don’t you think?
