Napa Farmhouse Style Home In California

Napa Farmhouse Style Home In California

I found a Napa Farmhouse Style home in California built new in 2013, but looks like it is centuries years old style-wise.

The listing details say “the Farmhouse borrows from 19th century home plans, but adds modern elements.”

I took a ride with Google street view and the neighborhood this home sits within is delightful with colorful to-die-for California homes everywhere.

This gorgeous from top to bottom Napa Farmhouse style home is on a corner lot at 743 29th St in Manhattan Beach, California.

Big on style and 3,800 square feet of room.

5 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and the listing says this “home has no equal in Manhattan Beach.”

It’s on the market for the pricey California amount of $4.2 million. While researching I found Hooked on Houses featured it back in April so it’s been for sale for a while.  MBConfidential posted a video home tour and states the Farmhouse was “Home of the Week” by the Los Angeles Times back is April as well.

Man Cave - Hunting Camp Style

Man Cave of cabins and antlers and other hunter things that go bump in the night.

Today I’m sharing some not ready for prime time photos of my husband’s family hunting camp.

It’s a change from my usual home tour. Hang onto your britches or get your pantyhose tied into a knot.

Most man caves we see online are beautiful creations in basements, sheds or garages.  I do have a Man Cave Pinterest board that shows these beauties places.

Today’s man cave is really a hunting camp way up north, deep in the woods where they say “Eh?” and “How boat it?!” Here, they eat pasties and carry fishing rods and bows in their trucks. Where flannel is still king. They wore neon and camouflage before it was popular.

Here’s a reality dose of man cave, hunting camp style.
