What were some of the features that sold you on the home?
"Growing up in the south, with a mother who always had the dining room table fully set with sterling and china — you know 'just in case,' it was important for me to have a formal dining and living room."

"In no way I am trying to insinuate that we were 'fancy' people — I just come from a line of women who like to entertain! The first two rooms upon entering are a big formal living room to the right and a formal dining room to the left by way of matching arched case openings. The wide, original crown moldings and lead trimmed windows add even more nostalgia—and I just love to think about all the gatherings that have taken place here. On top of loving the house and it’s character — we really love the neighborhood. It’s full of old homes, all with their own aesthetic. Nothing cooking cutter about it."
