Continuing on with the historic tour of Eutaw, AL, today we’ll visit 2 more beautiful homes.
I hope you’re still enjoying the tour of these beautiful and classic homes.
The first one is the Murphy-Dennis home, a raised Louisiana plantation style home in a classic story and a half over a high brick foundation, with an unusual basement “Winter kitchen”.These sprawling wrap-around porches just kill me. Oh, how pretty they are!
So much room to sit a spell and visit with some neighbors. I think that’s what we are missing these days. A big front porch! I took a few shots of the interior, with lots of antiques and pretty rugs. Furnished very much with the style of the house. Lots of colors and mixes. Red dining room and gorgeous silver service.
These old floors kill me too. Downstairs, you can see the original kitchen with the very old brick floors. Updated for today, but still has a very historical feel to it. Next stop is Sans Souci, tucked away by a pretty lake.
This is a European style home on Lake Harriett. This rambling home showcases a collection of French, Italian and American furnishings amassed through travels around the world. Built in 1979, it’s not an old home, but very pretty and situated on the lake, very serene.
Lots of antique furniture. Blurry shot of a painted bookcase. I loved the trim and molding on this.
The very pretty lime green master bedroom was lovely. Loved this shade of green and those antique bed frames are gorgeous. Pretty, pretty.Wonderful old chest of drawers. And the dining room.
That’s it for now, but I have 2 more homes to show you and they are both very old and stately.
Enjoy the tour!

I love the first one! That porch, those hardwoods, and the brick floors! Gorgeous! Thanks for taking us along with you :).
Oooo, I love that Sans Souci master bedroom! I could certainly spend some time sipping lemonade on that huge porch on the Murphy-Dennis home, too. Thank, Rhoda! La

Love the twin hd/ft boards on the king bed quite unique
The wrap around porch is dreamy and the charm in that home just sucks me right in.

Rhoda, I totally agree with you that we need front porches like the one on the first house. Wouldn’t that be fun. I really think neighbors would do much more visiting.

Rhoda…. these pictures really are great…. being a LA. girl, I looove the wraparound porches( who doesn’t ? )You are so right…. the times spent on porches, talkin’ and slapping flies ,were some of my best memories of my grandma’s house…. she even had a cot behind the line of rocking chairs, nestled up against the house…. where the sleepy young’uns could nap while their elders held forth….. once my older brother… (bored I guess, ) tied my hair in tiny little knots while I slept….. not so funny when Mother had to cut them out!!!!
Pass me another tea cake, would you, Sugar.?… Can’t you just hear it, now?
Love to see all the rest of this trip…. and thanks!
Gorgeous homes, Rhoda…great tour!
Love that porch, and I don’t see how anyone could have took that brick floor?

My dream house has a wraparound porch. You’ll find me on a swing sipping sweet tea . Some day. 🙂 I just love the dentil molding on the lake home! Thanks for sharing.

Love those beds. And why, oh why, am I not packing up and moving to Eutaw? Are all the homes there so lovely?
My mother was born in Eutaw. I took her back there a few years ago and we took the tour. The house she was born in (across the street from the Presbyterian Church) was on the tour. We had a blast. They are really some of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen.
love that wraparound porch and those chairs! sigh
enjoyed my visit :-))
I love to see the inside of this home! My parents and I have a place in Boligee, Alabama, just down the road, and when we head to the Piggly Wiggly for supplies and grub we ALWAYS drive by too ooooh and ahhhhh… thanks for connecting us with the roots right around the corner. Love Eutaw. Keep it coming.

Wow – those houses are amazing!!! That first house makes me wish I lived 100 years ago.
Then again, as I’m about to give birth and all, I think I’m pretty glad that I live now.
The master bedroom in that second house was stunning, too! Great tour!
