(Beautiful! Reminds me of California!)
(Now that’s the way to call the kids in for dinner! Ha!)
(Gorgeous! I love the slate floors, light fixtures, bamboo shades and built-in closets!)
LIVING ROOM & DEN
(Love the redwood ceiling, paneling, fireplace and windows!! Wonder what is under the carpet?)
(Nice built-ins and I think that’s where the wet bar is.)
(The built-in buffet is just stunning! And a great pendant light too!)
(Changing the backsplash, knobs and light fixtures would be an easy peasy way to retro-fy this kitchen!)
(Those built-ins are so cool!!)
(The solid gold bedroom.)
I don’t know much about Youngstown, except that it was home to Mullins Manufacturing, makers of the vintage Youngstown kitchen cabinets. (I really hope they didn’t remove those kind of cabinets from the home when it was renovated.) But I do know many Rust Belt cities are having a renaissance. Perhaps this is your chance to own a fabulous estate for a fraction of the price of a larger and more happening town? It seems like an amazing deal to me. Any readers familiar with the area that would like to weigh in?
