House Envy

Did you see the post on Hooked on Houses a few weeks back about the old Texas farmhouse that’s for sale?

It absolutely blew me away.

Absolutely.  Positively.  Gorgeous.


Any home with a front porch gets my attention, but an old farmhouse?  Yeah, gets me every time.

I love the paint colors they chose, don’t you?

The new kitchen is suberb and renovated in a vintage style.    I’m normally not a fan of darker wood cabinets, but the custom cherry cabinets with fireslate counter tops are perfect for this home.

kitchen in old farmhouse for sale in Manor

OK, by this point, I was sold on the place.

However, I just about died when I saw the beadboard walls and ceilings throughout the home.

Oh.  My.  Goodness!

You can never have too much beadboard in a home (that’s a personal philosophy of mine), and this home delivers.

Seriously ….  WOW!

This old and incredibly lovely place is located in Manor, Texas.  If you’re not familiar with that area, Manor is a short commuting distance from Austin down Highway 290.

If Mark and I were looking in that area, this home would be a real contender.

  1. I may have to move to Texas! Talk about perfect!!!

  2. Oh my! Love it!

  3. Fantastic place! I could be swayed to move that way as well, if we were looking. Right now we’re working on trying to get this one completed from where we stopped…..and then of course we have a lot of redo/touch ups to “redo”…..
    It’s just never ending with a 100 + year old house.

    hugs to you and Mark!

    I haven’t forgotten about our plans to get together….will PM you soon
