In most cases, a lady doesn't discuss her age, but this "grand dame" is all about full disclosure. Why wouldn't she want you to know she is 120? She knows she can go the distance another 100. Like any true matriarch, she has determinedly passed the test of time and for more than a century, has towered over her peers & her surroundings. In the sum of her years, she has had only 4 "caretakers"... Does one really own her or are we simply a temporary part of her world? A traditional turret room, decorative fish scale shingling, wrap-around veranda, & massive, 7-foot, full-pane windows ushering prismatic light into every corner of her being are just some of her endearing assets. A vision of Victorian architecture, she wears her imported French details in a most unassuming manner - ornate fretwork panels; richly carved wood detail; 6 coal-burning fireplaces with uniquely carved mantels & distinctive tile surrounds. Leaded & stained-glass adorn her stately rooms like jewelry; her floors appear to be the original pine. She speaks of a time when life moved at a slower pace, evoking kindness, manners & gentility, & has most certainly seen her share of iced-tea & mint juleps offered on the veranda, fried-chicken dinners served to family & friends "on the grounds" & many an old-fashioned, hand-cranked, ice cream social. Have you EVER dreamt of a Victorian existence? Here is an amazing opportunity to make it your reality! Call today for a personal introduction to the "Lady of the House"!
