Wow! I love how they've maintained the authenticity of the house while updating things like that AMAZING KITCHEN! The beamed ceilings in the bedrooms...Swoon...

I know this is crazy...but the price -- albeit out of my range -- doesn't seem super crazy? And there's 2,000 foot homes in parts of NJ with taxes as high (scary, but true).

GREAT PLACE! I don't want to ownut if you buy it... I'd want to visit!

Laura & Fifi (Laura) -
So many Lauras! ;-)
It is a beautiful house and to top it off, it's in Salisbury which is an absolutely gorgeous corner of the world at the edge of the Berkshires (mountain chain - more like hills, really). I am dying to go hiking there.

That is my kind of place. Let me go scrounge in the sofa cushions, I'm sure I can come up with $2.9 mil. Gorgeous. Sigh.

High Desert Diva said...

Very nice....if a bit pricey

I like the idea of being an inkeeper though...

Marie Louise said...

Robin & Diva - maybe if we all chip in we can run it together! I'm certain there is not enough change in your couch Robin. We'll have to start returning bottle to the supermarket.

OOOOoooo that was fun! I'd love to stay in the red room - all of the place is wonderful! I was working in the Berkshires thirty years ago, so it is amazing how time flies. I always remember Connecticut as being beautiful.

God, amazing. I'd like to move into the bathroom. Oh, wait, the bathroom is bigger than our humble abode.

Gorgeous! I might start dreaming of being an innkeeper now if it meant I got to live and work in a joint like this. Love it! -Julia
