My Old Country House
THIS house was built in 1880, after the house originally built upon the property in 1830, burnt to the ground.
I think it is pretty amazing that in all those years, we are only the second owners!
The original owners came out on the wrong end of the Civil war, and Our house, named “FAIRVIEW” was billed as the “Little House”.
Kind of makes me wonder what the “BIG HOUSE” must have looked like!At 3700 square feet this is plenty of house for me, and on some days…much too much. I know, I know….a problem many would like to have…and I do cherish my house…All she has taught me..how to care for her and how to be patient. I used to ask myself if my big house and all she requires of me was a running my life…but now I see it..as my LIFE’S work…to love this house back to the beautiful Lady she is.
At the end of the day…I LOVE my Old House..it is where it ALL happens.
Here is a tour of our house…
