It's not the O'Hara's...but it's close.

Last weekend Jeff and I went to snoop around a new home his uncle just bought.  It's just 15 minutes away, and his uncle's not moving from the farm, but if it was me, I would come here every weekend to soak up it's history.  And serve dinner parties constantly.  And have everyone call me Scarlett O'Hara.

It's absolutely breathtaking.  Gone With the Wind being my favorite movie, I was in heaven walking around this place.  I felt like I just walked onto Tara.  It's a work in progress.  His aunt and uncle are doing amazing renovations, and I can't wait to see the finished product.  

The front porch alone is enough to make me faint.  The columns must be thirty feet tall.  Can you even see Jeffrey, there?  And they wrap all the way around the house.
 As I entered, I realized the main foyer is the size of my living room practically.  And the detail in the flooring in amazing. 
 Every room has chandeliers that will bring you to your knees.  Well, they did me, at least.  What I wouldn't give for one of these original fixtures in my home.  They're like pieces of art.
 And the hardware, have mercy. 
 And wouldn't you love every guest in your home to have their own fireplace in their bedroom?
 I could go on and on, but for now I'll just anticipate the finished remodel of this gorgeous 200 year old home.  And of course I'll share pictures with you.
