friday fun

May 28, 2010

If I had a million dollars or so…Oh this is what I would get. This stunning home tucked in Denver’s posh 7th Ave neighborhood was just listed at $1,085,000. And really it’s a steal.I don’t expect this one to be around for long. So Pretty!

This house sits on one of the most beautiful blocks in Denver. Really this picture does not do it justice.

Umm do you think it's the white kick I'm on? But this would be so gorgeous with some stunning furniture with all the white and the ceilings. Love.

Again let the furniture sing in the light filled dining room

This kitchen isn't fussy. It is well appointed with a European feel.

I love a fireplace in the bedroom.

Again simple all the amenities are there but it's not obnoxiously large or over done

This is the stuff that I love about a historical house. A pretty little staircase that someone clearly renovated but kept that original feeling.

Covered porch. Is there anything wrong with this place? We have the occasional late day shower here in Denver and this lets you stay outside and not having to run for cover.

Charming in the city

May 3, 2010

Check out my new listing in Capitol Hill.  It is a great little Victorian right in the heart of it.  We just staged it this weekend and it looks great!  Two bedroom/one bath, hardwood floors, charming beadboard ceilings, tons of light, stainless appliances, all-weather sunroom with french doors, huge garage, parking for two, loft space for yoga or office, walk-in closets…it has it all.  $349,000.

This place has tons of curb appeal.

The leaded glass doors set the tone for the foyer.

Gas fireplace, exposed brick and stained glass windows add to the vintage charm of the house.

Skylights fill the living room with light.

The living room and dining room have a great open floor plan

The bath has a great vintage feel too

I love the master bedroom. Typically I would paint the ceiling white but I think the natural wood has a great European feel.

This is the front bedroom on the first floor perfect for an office too. Huge windows with plantation shutters

This is a great bonus space terra-cotta floors and french doors bring the outdoors in.

Low maintenance yard and sunny patio right in the heart of the city.

Two car garage with room for your scooter!

life’s a beach

April 23, 2010

Having a lovely time here in Vero Beach.  Sunny, eighty degrees and my skin is hydrated. Yeah!  I’m supposed to be relaxing but you can’t take the real estate agent out of me.  My Dad and I have been discussing the market since I got here and I love it!  We took a drive in a charming area near the Rio Mar golf club.  Giant mangrove trees drape a cross the streets, all the homes were painted beautiful colors you could only get away with at the beach and they had crunchy gravels driveways. Ah! I wish I could hop on a beach cruiser and never leave. Here are a few home I think could work. Happy weekend!

There was yellow, peach, pink but his was my favorite color with a hunter green door. This home is listed at $649,000 with 3 bedroom 3 baths pool. Not bad.

This house is a little bit more expensive $1.9 million to be exact. It's on a road called Painted Bunting Lane. Hmmm. interesting

I could totally get into this backyard, Vodka tonic anyone?

Love this little cottage. Ha! $1,895,000

And this for $1,995,000

We're going up $2.1 million

Not sure this is the kitchen of a $2.1 million dollar home but I like wallpaper and the butcher block counters

$1,495,000 for this yellow honey.

I have to admit this was a my favorite I'm a sucker for a fixer upper $799,000.

away to Uruguay

April 9, 2010

Check out this beautiful home in Uruguay.  A couple from London bought an acre of land in a remote village and built a place to escape to the winter months in England. (Wouldn’t that be nice)  They maintained the look of the town and created four independent but linked structures.  Almost everything from the cabinets to the furniture to the artwork were all made locally.  I could really relax in this stunning home. The soft muted tones and rustic simplicity are just lovely.  How about an alfresco dinner in the outdoor dining room?  Definitely some relaxing by the pool.  Happy Weekend!

emerald isle

March 18, 2010

I know I’m a day late for the irish theme but I was just captivated by by these beautiful homes in Ireland.  It makes me want to pack my bags and head for the greenest place on earth.  I’ve never been there before but I need to go soon.  Enjoy!

This place is amazing, so amazing it has a name, Duncarrig.  This Victorian Gothic home has a waterfront location in Kinsale in County of Cork.  Sign me up!

Set on the cliffs of the bay it has a fishing platform, dock and secluded beach.

There are endless windows in this home allowing sun to poor in...provided it's a sunny day

Who couldn't wake up to this every morning!

This kitchen is well-appointed and it has a wonderful cozy and casual feel with the dining table right in the center.

Note the herringbone floors, fabulous!

If it’s a little more of a city feel you crave our next stop takes us to Dublin.  This villa is located on Albert Road and has endless amounts of upgrades.  The period style exterior is a just a facade to the modern interior.  Fully renovated including a glass cube addition.

I love the gravel driveway and simple landscaping.

The oversized lamps are sleek and beautiful giving accentuating the height of the room

I think I might live in this room

If it’s a secluded getaway you desire we are off to Archill Island in County of Mayo.  The Glor na Mara cottage is the ideal setting to paint, write or just relax.  It was designed and built by  famous architect in 2000 but you would never know considering it rustic appeal.

I'll be dragging my giant down comforter with me to this one. {That bed looks a little to rustic for me. ha!

Speaking of rustic. Hopefully town is nearby I may need to order out. Not that I cook. Does boiling water count?

Ah yes but this is your sunset
