Have I ever mentioned that I'm a sucker for people who name their houses? House names are always so personal and, like a storefront, they bring life to an inanimate object.
Note the mixture of the brick and lattice work.
Meet the house named "Woodlawn." Located up in the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia.
The house was originally built in 1797 and renovated in 2005. During renovation, the house was actually taken apart, moved approximately 160 miles, and put painstakingly back together. A somewhat amazing feat when you consider the amount of work involved.
There are many aspects of this house that should be appreciated.
The beamed ceilings.
The 6 fireplaces.
The aged wood. The patina of aged wood, with all of its chips and splits, simply adds character.
And the bathroom, a mix of old and new turquoise elements, is one that clearly would be loved by one of our favorite bloggers: Erin from the House of Turquoise.
