Let's start with the first floor.
Once we removed the heavy drapery and cleared it of debris, this room became bathed in natural light - it's now one of the brightest rooms in the house.
This space is comprised of multiple compartmentalized rooms - including a mudroom/laundry room, kitchen, breakfast room, butlers pantry, and hall. The walls will be removed to create one large kitchen open to a TV/music room.
This room was originally a porch. The son of the original owner had it enclosed and used it as his winter room - it is South facing and is gloriously warm during the cold months.
Once we removed the debris and the smelly old carpet, we got our first peek of the original brick porch floor.
Moving on to the 2nd floor.
Remember the second floor windows I showed you from the exterior photos? Here they are blanketing the staircase in beautiful midday sun.
This is the original master suite, complete with 1950's pink tile. For a home built in 1951, it has tons of closet space - 2 closets in the bedroom, and a bank of closets in the dressing room.
This is the second bedroom suite. In this photo it looks dark and cave-like. However, just like downstairs, once we took down the window treatments, the room came alive with natural light and beautiful hillside views.
The third and final bedroom upstairs. I'm thinking of keeping the wallpaper, what do you think? Let me know.
"Voila! Light and bright looking through the stairwell and the tall windows and out to the rear courtyard. Problem solved - one room - two views - plenty of light."

Well, there you have it, some of the rooms here on the farm. There are several more I'll be sharing as I go. Thanks for taking my tour. She may not look like much now, but at the end of this renovation story, she'll be an amazing, majestic, proper Southern lady perched on here ridge smothered in traditional design with a hint of modern rustic. She'll also have a brand new ground floor master suite; AND rumor has it, a dark modern rustic man will be joining her on her perch - the brand new "Taj Ma Barn" is coming to the farm! If you'd like to follow the transformation just simply "subscribe" below - and/or follow me on INSTAGRAM where I'll be sharing the day-to-day throughout the project.
