Monday Real-Estalking

Even though I love my house and my new town I still like to torture myself by looking at real estate listings… in random parts of the country I will never live.  Last week when I got my copy of Maine Home I saw a listing for this house in Belfast, Maine. The way, way, way up near Canada part of Maine. I shall not live there, ever. EXCEPT look at this joint?!?!?  Can you even stand it- especially for the price?? Anywhere near Boston that place would be over 2 million!

I have such a soft spot for Greek Revivals.

Shall we venture upstairs? How badly do you want to slide down that banister?

While the rest of the room needs mucho updating, those beds are amazing.

They tried to update it a little TOO much- imagine with a reclaimed wood vanity and unlacquered brass plumbing fixtures?!

Some inspiration images of what I would like this home to look like- sort of Windsor Smith meets Daryl Carter….
