I WANNA live there WEDNESDAY # 121

Good morning everyone !

Because we're still in renovation mode ( and probably will be for the next 2 years ) I thought I'd show you the most gorgeous renovated farmhouse.............

All images found on THIS OLD HOUSE
HOME OWNER - JANE BENSON ACKERMAN

LOCATED IN NORWICH, VERMONT
( a State we've often spent an afternoon in - it's quite close to Montreal )





BUILT INS !!!


LOVE THE KITCHEN CABINETS MIMICKING A HUTCH !


THE SINK WAS A SALVAGED FIND YEARS BEFORE THE RENO TOOK PLACE AND THE KITCHEN WAS DESIGNED AROUND IT - I LOVE THIS LADY !!!




THOSE FLOORS !


RENOVATED ATTIC - ISN'T THIS BEAUTIFUL?
I'D BE SMILING TOO :)





This is how it originally looked -


I was just as fascinated reading all about the reno's as seeing these gorgeous images of it done !

A great read - if you're interested - you can follow the link HERE - it ends on such a lovely note.

Thank you Jane - you've given me renewed hope with mine !!!

Have a wonderful day everyone
Much love
Hugs too
Me

  5. Thanks for sharing this beautiful, beautiful home! I love everything about it but wouldn't have wanted to go through the renovations and the expense! It is lovely and bright and just the right size. Happy ending too. :) Enjoy the day!

  6. It's so adorable, and I love the color scheme. Three years is coming up on ours in a few months. Last year it seemed we didn't do too much, but we fixed the roof and that was big. I hope we finish this year or next. A home can always have something, but I would like to check off all the original plans.

  7. Oh Suzan!! This is THE kitchen of my dreams!

  8. The wide-plank floors are something I've dreamed of for a long time!

  9. Yeah, I wanna live there too! This house has all of the charm of a sweet, sweet cottage with the built-ins and the nooks AND the gorgeous plank floors and kitchen sink of a farm house. A very delightful combination! I want to follow the link you included to read more--thanks so much for sharing this!

  11. Beautiful home reno. I am relieved to see the paint colours are similar to ours along with the painted floor and natural ones. Assures me we are on the right track, I have been doubting my choices lately. Lovely! xo Patty

  12. Oooh, I love this one. I'll take the dog, too.

  13. I loved seeing this home! It's so nice to see old homes being renovated instead of torn down. Thanks for sharing these great photos on SYS tonight too!

  14. I could so live here, absolutely love it all !!! It warms my heart to see how much love and work went into restoring this old home, happy it was saved!

  15. Wow, what a fabulous renovation! Love every single photo! I have a sink very similar to that. I wanted to put it in our basement kitchen when we finished it, but the contractor talked me out of it. He said it was so old and heavy and would be difficult to plumb. I went with a new farm sink and it is now a planter in my yard. Seeing this makes me a little sad. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

  16. How depressing! I love those little old New England houses. She could have saved a lot of work and hassle by selling the original to someone who would have moved it to another site and saved it for a more moderate rehab. Or just torn it down and built the 21st century house she wanted.
    This the first house you have presented that made me want to weep. Sorry, I'm just too attached to the landscape of the New England in which I grew up.
    I followed your last house and trust you will not do something this drastic with the one you are in now. Please.......

    1. Really Marje?
      I have to ( respectfully ) disagree - I find she kept the integrity ( what was left of it ) in tact completely ! It doesn't look like a 21st century house to me at all - just an older home that's been lovingly restored !
      XOXO

  17. So cool! I was just thinking...where are we going today? Love this!

  22. OMG I am speechless. Ok not really. I love this house...I think this is my dream home. Going to the link to make sure! Cheers.

  23. Oh what a dream home and in New England to boot! That is such a beautiful part of our country, The house is so cozy looking...it deserves a second and third viewing. Thank you so much Suzan for linking up to SYS and have a terrific weekend!

  24. Wow! That is a gorgeous house now. I could definitely live there. I love her use of orange and yellow in the kitchen, such a sunny and happy looking kitchen and that sink!!! Love it!!!
    The attic looks like it is made for short people like the little lady in the old photo, that made me smile! :) I visited Montreal one time when my sister lived there and she drove me down to New York and across a bridge to Vermont. Sadly, that is all I got to see of it, but I can say I've been there, (barely).

  26. I've seen that cute kitchen sink around... in fact I think I might even have it on my Pinterest boards. :) I love the feel of a cottage like that. So much closer to the way I live. Comfy and cozy. ;) Thanks for sharing the cottage with us at Project Inspire{d}! [[hugs]]
