Looking down from the top of the staircase.
So neat!

In my area a house like that would be 3 if not 4 times that price.

Great photos, I feel like I've been there, too.

Oh my goodness! That's like my husband and mine's dream home! When we were first friends in high school we both bonded over loving old victorian doll houses, and if we could find one now we would buy it!
Just read that you had a blog and looked it up!
