Today, we want to share some pictures with you of Rivermont when we bought her. The first time we walked through, I believe the only thing I photographed was a doorknob (seen here). We were both so overwhelmed by the house. She has quite the presence, and this is only a smattering of rooms. In fact, my favorite rooms aren’t included. We’ll look at those at another time!
We are pretty in love with the green, which is good… because it’s everywhere!
The kitchen needs some love, and I don’t really want to talk about the brown sinks. (Was that really a thing in the 80s?) As I’ve mentioned, the only room I miss from our Nobel Street home is the kitchen. But I made Husband take a picture of me hugging our old fridge before we moved out–so there’s that.
These are not my favorite bedrooms, but you can see the wood floors and the beautiful built-ins. So. Many. Built-ins!
Worth noting: There’s a bell in the top of that building on the right that guests ring when they arrive. It’s one of my new favorite things!
Isn’t she grand? I can’t wait to share the history and some of the stories we’ve learned. More to come soon!
I love it!
Crazy beautiful, Hannah. I love this house! Welcome home!
Hannah, this house is absolutely breath-taking!!! So happy for you two!
How roomy and spectacular. I got so excited when I saw the back yard. Potting sheds are the newest of raves and such potential in the garden/entertainment area. I can’t wait to see the newly remodled kitchen. Know that’s top of your list, your taste is impeccable.
Oh WOW!!! She is absolutely amazing! I love the old charm and nuances of classic homes. The details are inspiring and the stories are captivating to listen to. I love the Bell…….
So happy for you and James and glad that you are now the proud owners of this grand home! I would love a tour someday. And the porch…… oh my I can see people sipping lemonade and listening to stories!
This house is so ya’ll *in my best Tennessee drawl*. I love how airy it is. You will have so much w̶o̶r̶k̶ fun making this your forever home 🙂
We are Appalachia/Big Stone Gap friends of your parents!! Chuck has worked in real estate forty plus years. I worked twenty years. I must say this is the most awesome house I’ve ever seen!!! I can just imagine the fun of having a house like this to decorate. And, oh,my goodness, you must put Christmas pictures on . I know your momma and daddy are so happy for you! !
