On our way home from visiting Todd's family this past weekend we drove through Thomasville, Georgia. We don't usually take that route so it's been years since I've driven through Thomasville. We originally planned to stop for dinner at one of the neat little restaurants downtown but everything was closed so we settled for BBQ on the way out of town. We did take a little time to drive around and look at the beautiful houses though.
There was one street in particular that had these huge, stately homes of big lots. I'd take any of them in a heartbeat but this one.....
I don't know if a house could be more perfect! I made Todd drive by it again and again so I could take more pictures. I really hope no one saw me with my paparazzi camera. The wrap around porch, the porte cochere (!!!), the brick steps, the widows walk. It's just unreal!
Here she is again from the side. Look at that amazing gas lantern! Most of the homes of this street had gas lanterns. My next house will have them. No negotiations.
And from the other side...
This house, to me, looks like it belongs in the Hamptons. Not your typical Georgia-style architecture but there is something about it I really love. It does need gas lanterns though.
I swear this house has been on the cover of Southern Living. Not quite as stately as The Perfect House down the street but beautiful nonetheless. It's got a porte cochere which is always a plus.
