July 6, 2009Live The Fairytale – Storybook Ranch For Sale
Okay, so this may not be the traditional Storybook, or “Cinderella” ranch with the Hansel and Gretel style gingerbread trim on the outside, but something about this ranch that is for sale in my neighborhood really feels like that style. Maybe it is the great kitchen, or the rose bouquet wallpaper in the bathroom that makes me think of living inside a little cottage!
Love the exterior color, by the way. In any case, this house is 1581 square feet and is for sale for $135,000. You would have to put up with a one car garage, but otherwise this house is a great candidate for restoring to 1950’s glory!
Love this entryway tile! The forest green is awesome and totally goes with the “into the woods” feel.
Super sweet and retro chic, I ADORE these kitchen cabinets. The best is that they still have the original hinges that make them look like grandma’s cabinets. I am betting that copper range hood is original! The wallpaper doesn’t look vintage, but it still cute.
The wallpaper extends into the dining room, where I am not so crazy about it, but I am crazy about that fantastic brick fireplace. Love the built-ins and the paneled wall. Hmmm…I wonder what color the kitchen cabinets used to be?
This bathroom looks redone, but check out the rose bouquet wallpaper! It matches the curtains AND the shower curtain. Wow. Now that is dedication to a pattern. In any case, this bathroom could easily be redone to match the period, and the wallpaper would work, too!
Ohhhhhh…I love picture windows. And you get a ton of neutral pinch pleat drapes. Ahh…heaven.
