Wow! I am sooo jealous. What an amazing place to call home.

jaye, i can't believe i'm here. it's unreal. the deed came today, but that just seemed like another unreal layer! heh! once i get a refrigerator, i may never leave! and actually, i think i'm snowed in right now but i don't care.

do cardinals have yellow on the tip of their tail??? just wondering...

Aine said...

It looks wonderful! I love the tub-- could definitely relax in that. The photos capture a sense of serenity. I guess I had an expectation of a darker feel. Of course, any house that's not full of clutter feels serene to me. :)

Heather Harper said...

I love the pictures, Anne. The view is stunning and so is your home.

P.S. I'm giving your books away on my blog today. :)

aine, serene pretty much says it all. i'm guessing that was the design concept for the remodel. the front door and entry are really creepy. so is the basement. :O


heather!! that's awesome!!

cinderelly said...

ANY basement is creepy! spooky stuff in basements...now you gotta show us photos of it! but really, the place is so amazingly wonderful! and the stove is sooo great! i have to agree with aine on the tub, too!

Stephen Blackmoore said...

Nice. What's all that white stuff on the ground?

anne frasier said...

cinderelly, yeah, i love the tub!! i go snorkeling in it. ;) i think i'm going to try to sell the kitchen appliances - stove, fridge, freezer. the stove has...i think 10 pilot lights. and i don't cook. :D but it sure is purty.

stephen, it's asbestos.

This is an amazing place. What do the steps spell?

Michael Rigg said...

Inspiring. Jealousy bites my ass again.

jason evans said...

Wow, so many cool architectural elements and reclaimed materials! The guy who renovated it really put care into what he was doing.

You even have a watchtower. How cool is that?!

Michele Hauf said...

You are my inspiration for the bigger smaller life! Can't wait to see the place. Lois and I are already planning a road trip. But er...probably after all the snow is gone. :-)

anne frasier said...

mindy, i think the lettering is the manufacturing company. the steps came from a san francisco firehouse.

michael -- sorry about that. wait -- no i'm not. :D

jason, i love the contrast of contemporary and antique. yes, a lot of reclaimed stuff. the floor is all reclaimed wood. i plan to spend a lot of time in the bell tower. you have to go up three ladders and through two hatches, so i already plan to put my laptop in a backpack to get up there once spring arrives.


michele, it will make a fun daytrip for you two! i can't wait!

emeraldcite said...

--drool--

i want one.

Tami said...

Holy smokes Anne! I'm very jealous (of the place and the view). The floors are beautiful and I have to agree with everyone about the tub. I've always loved those claw tubs.

I got my very own copy of Garden of Darkness today and it's on the top of my TBR pile. :) I was originally going to wait for christmas but then was in B&N today and couldn't resist.

anne frasier said...

emeraldcite -- nice to see you! well, the drawback is that i didn't make it to florida -- but i anticipate winter being somewhat enjoyable here -- so there's a definite payoff.

tami -- yay! thanks!

the tub is amazing. all i know is that it's really old and it came from france -- i can't help thinking of the dead people who used it long ago and far away -- something cool and really creepy. :D

angie said...

Y'know, only you could make the idea of using a dead dude/dudette's bathtub sound interesting. Just thinking about it gives me the shivers and there's quite enough snow to do that already!

Gorgeous, gorgeous. Thrilled for you, Anne. Happy writing in your fab new church, er, home!

anne frasier said...

angie, lol! well, i try to look at the dark side of things. :D
