house tour tuesday: farm{house} for sale

a couple of weeks ago, i got to play real estate assistant for a friend of mine. (if you follow me on Instagram, then you saw a few shots of my favorite parts of the home.)

it was so fun!

i had seen the pictures of the home on the MLSย before i went, but when i showed up in person, the home blew me away. the details that were in every nook and cranny, not to mention the way the home had been decorated (contemporary, farmhouse style, my favorite!), were hard to convey through the online slide show. to top it off, the home is currently owned and being sold by the nicest couple! i had such a fun time chatting with the wife and seeing a little glimpse of myself in her. she loves old chippy furniture and farm style decor. she said she had been collecting some of the pieces for years.

today, i got to tag along on a showing and sneak some pictures in of the details to show you all. there are a lot, so you’ve been warned ๐Ÿ˜‰

enjoy! and come on in…

the home is huge. HUGE! yet it still is very comfortable and cozy. most of the bedrooms, kitchen, and den surround the main living room.

the kitchen has honed carrera marble counter tops and a soapstone island (my two favorite choices for counter tops!).

and that brick back splash is amazing! love the details of the date in the brick.

i also love how the island is painted grey to make it look like a piece of furniture in the middle of the room.

that hallway leads to a guest roomโ€ฆ.

and the sweetest little bathroom with carrera marble honeycomb tile.

also down that hallway is the dutch style back door and a walk in pantry with a chalkboard door.

off the kitchen is the dining room.

the other kids’ room had a clever use of a mantel as a headboard.
