My Wonderful Farmhouse

Now we all know there is a house we have driven by that just hit us as the “perfect abode”……and every time we see it, we imagine living in that house, making it ours and of course having all of the money to do so!

My cousin Linda and I were driving down a road in the outskirts of Eau Claire and went by just such a house…..it yelled to me, not quietly but rather loudly….here I am!!!!!! 

So I went back on a sunny bright day and got photos, and every photo I got  a little bit closer, this is across the street…

Then I kept getting closer until I was in their driveway!

My Dream Farmhouse in EC  OCT 2011

Look at the trim work….

This was a working farm…..it has a barn….right by the house….

 

Barn next to my fav farmhouse in Eau Claire

IMG_0221 and many newer little buildings, and the cutest garage that I didn’t photograph, my cousin is going to see if they decorate it for Christmas and send me photos…..right Linda?????  :):)

 

A white Victorian farmhouse with a red roof and red trim…..need I say more????  Other than being right on a main road I would have knocked on the door and asked to buy it!  I was still tempted to knock on the door and ask to see the inside…….this is definitely my farmhouse!!!!!  It is lovingly maintained and taken care of in such a way I doubt anyone would want to sell it…..but you can always dream, right??????  :):)

I have those dreams all the time! This one is a beauty - I can see why you love it.

Oh I love it Sandy, I could see myself living there too! What a coincidence, yesterday I was "pinning" and I came across this gal's board and everything was white snow with red buildings. I will see if I can find it again, you would love it! Your new header makes me so homesick for Ohio! Hugs, Nan

NanE said...

Found it! I had pinned several things from it!

This house would have stopped me in my tracks! A white farmhouse with a red roof and a big red barn is my dream home. I know I'll be looking at this picture over and over again!

Cindy said...

If you can't buy it, you can certainly keep looking at your photos. (That's what I'd do, anyway.)


NO RED?

Imagine a world without red
For either a robin or sled:
How drab it would be
No scarlet to see,
But only grey shading instead!

Gotta love it! Where would we be without our dreams?

LANA said...

Yes, I have a few dream houses in a near-by village. I drive down the street every month or so just to see if there are any changes and I check the internet almost daily to see if one of them goes on the market. I don't even know what I would do if one did become available; I would have to put my house on the market immediately, and how long would it take to sell? But I dream.

omg, it is just beautiful!!
Hugs,

FHCS said...

What a pretty farmhouse. I agree, the white with the red trim is just beautiful. Hopefully it will one day be yours :). Thank you for sharing!

Jenny said...

What a fabulous house! And a fabulous dream!

LV said...

Living on the farm would be nice in buildings like this. They did make buildings like that when I was growing up.

Mecky said...

That is a great farmhouse!!
There is one not far from here that I have always wanted. I would love to knock on the door and offer them a good price to buy it if I could. The people who own it now have let it go to pot. So sad because if they don't do something soon, it will be too late.

Lynn said...

That farmhouse is splendid! Like you, I would LOVE a tour of the inside. I'll bet it's brimming with vintage goodness. I'm you neighbor at Rednesday and your newest follower. Love your cheerful blog!

Wow, that is definitely a top-of-the-line dream house!

Mine is in my town on a street called . . . Lovers Lane! It's farmhouse-style, yellow with green shutters!

Hi, Sandy,
I can so relate. I DO have a dream house, too.
