New House Tour ~ Living Room

Continuing on with our New House Tour, I will remind you that this home was staged for a fund raising tour by designers and furniture stores. A fee was charged to tour the beautiful home and the money went to The Advocacy Network for Children.  So remember, this is a staged home...NOT THE HOMEOWNERS FURNISHINGS OR DECOR.  You will see price tags and some things out of place, because I was there while it was being staged.

Knowing this, please focus on the finishes and house design. I will be featuring each room over the next several blogs because this home is HUGE and I just can't give you a quality tour without separating the rooms.

Let's continue on the tour with the living room and covered deck. (You can see the Kitchen tour HERE)
View from the upstairs loft.

This large living room features two story vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace that goes all the way up to the ceiling with the same stone as on the outside (I can't believe that I didn't take a picture of the whole fireplace), hand scraped hardwood floors and two walls of windows making it feel more like a sun room.
Don't let the guy in the window scare you. He was from a window cleaning company and finishing up the day before the tour. The designer pushed the furniture close together because the area rug was too small for this large space. The homeowner has purchased two sofas and two chairs and ottomans but will spread out the seating more.
View from the fireplace across the living room into the kitchen.

View out the window of the covered deck. Here the railing was not finished yet.

This land features a (New) small lake/large pond just past the back yard. It makes for a wonderful vista especially once the landscaping and grass are in.
Tomorrow I will post more on this fantastic home.

NOTE: You should be able to click on most of the pictures to enlarge to see further details.
