Thanks for all your very encouraging comments on the master bathroom tile project. I’m just tickled with it and was happy to share it with all of you too.
We have a White House right here in the Birmingham area of Westover. Not that kind of White House, but an old historical home that is now used for wedding venues and other functions. I found their official website, which states that the house was built as a residence back in the mid-1800’s and is a Southern plantation style home.
Isn’t it beautiful? I just LOVE old homes and even though I don’t live in one, I certainly love to look at them up close and personal to see the charm they offer.
So, I took the time to stop by here on sunny afternoon and took some pics that I just knew you’d enjoy seeing too.
Don’t you just LOVE these huge old Southern porches? I can just taste the sweet tea right now, sitting out here rockin’ in those rocking chairs and enjoying the cool breezes of a Southern spring. Oh, honey chile! Even though I really don’t like iced tea. I know, it’s a crime to be Southern and not like tea! What in the world happened to me?
Anyway, I love this big old front porch. I’m sure it has stories to tell.
This house sits on a nice piece of acreage and I’m sure was once a stately home to a family that lived here, back before Hwy. 280 was paved and now whizzes past not very far away.
This gnarly old tree has seen some years.
This would sure make a nice setting for a wedding.
Perfect for pictures and a wedding reception.
It is only open by appointment, so we had to peek in the front door from the porch, but I sure liked what I saw. If you’d like to see more of the house, click on the link above and look at the Gallery pics. Gorgeous pics!
If anyone is looking for a wedding venue, you might check this one out.
It looks to be very nicely appointed and it sure is beautiful from the outside.
Old historical homes always catch my eye. If you could live in an old home, would you? I have always wanted to live in one, but it just seems like they would be a lot of trouble to maintain.
For those of you who live in older homes, is it worth it? The maintenance to keep them in top shape?
