I found a Charleston SC historic home that has stood the test of time since roughly 1796 through 1800.
She looks good enough to eat. Apparently others feel this way because she was renovated by a preservation architect. The rooms are all formal and Charleston-looking and of course the house is now modernized.
It even has an elevator to carry you about from floor to floor; this is important when lugging a vacuum.
Your butler will enjoy hanging out in the butler’s pantry bridge area awaiting your commands.
Because we are all kings and queens of our castles, the elevator stops by your large and luxurious master suite upon the second floor.
Have tea in the library while reading important stuff in books.
Daily dips in the private pool are a perfect way to end your day while living in this Charleston SC historic home.
Then just before falling asleep, paddle your feet down to the kitchen and open your Subzero refrigerator drawer to find leftovers cooked on the Viking range of course!
Knock, knock, let’s look at this Charleston SC historic home.
May I introduce you to the historically significant Douxsaint-Mccauley House. I call it a lovely french quarter lady to love. The listing suggests otherwise and calls it a “handsome, beaded weatherboard property.” I am clearly mixed up on house genders.… Continue Reading
I am smitten with the real Life As We Know It house from the 2010 romantic dramedy. The house sits in Atlanta, Georgia and is beautifully landscaped.
Built in 1945, the home details say it was completely renovated. It’s a house for a big family. Five bedrooms, five full and two half-baths, and five fireplaces. Arched doorways and double french doors to porch. Large gourmet kitchen with two dishwashers.
If you fell in love with the house in the film, you’re going to fall in love with the real Life As We Know It house too.
I have a Life As We Know It movie post from 2012. It details the movie plot. I share screen shots showing the movie set decorating, scenes from the film and exterior screen shots of the house. The interior of the house for the film was a movie set, but exterior house scenes were filmed at the Atlanta, Georgia house. Gorgeous southern Atlanta, Georgia home famous for starring in a movie, but even without that extra status would probably be famous on its own architectural beauty on the street where it lives.The house as it appeared in the film had two trees. The Life As We Know It real house now has one tree in the front yard or maybe it is just the angle of the real estate photo. (See all the photos of the movie house at the bottom of the post and help me figure out if a tree is missing.)
The landscaping has also changed with lower bushes around the front door. I spot a trellis on the real house added between the two windows on the far right and all kinds of new bushes and ground cover.… Continue Reading
