Southern Style House Tour (Part 3)

Hi and happy Friday! We’re heading upstairs at the house on Felder Avenue today!

Open Staircase | Stairs | Newel Posts | Dark Wood Treads | Old House

When you get to the top of those steps, you’ll find three bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms, and a cozy den. Here’s a peek into the bathroom…

Bathroom | Old House | Corner Shower | Curtain | Gray Vanity | White Walls

Sideboard Sink Vanity | Bathroom | Old House | Oval Mirror

Master Bathroom | Gray Vanity | Sideboard

I love how big and bright it is!

And speaking of light-filled, the bedrooms are flooded with loads of natural light (and beautiful original-to-the-house details), too:

Girls Bedroom | Church Pew | Vintage | Old House | Hart

Girls Bedroom | Fireplace | Crystal Chandelier | Antique Mirror

Girls Bedroom | White | Crystal Chandelier | Transom Window

Monogrammed Headboard | Stuffed Animals | Girls Bedroom

Have I ever told you how much I love those chunky wooden dresser knobs? #smitten

This is the master bedroom space…

…and this is the master bedroom closet:

Bowl of Moss | Master Bedroom Closet

Wood Box | Table Lamp | Master Bedroom Closet

I told you. Natural light-o-rama up in this place!!

My favorite space upstairs is actually the den located at the back corner of the house:

Den | Wood Ceiling | Wall Grouping | Art | Frames

You know I’m a sucker for lots of white & wood! πŸ˜€

The banister in that photo is what’s around the staircase that leads back down to the kitchenΒ that I blogged about the other day:

Banquet | Round Pedestal Table | Caned Back Chairs | White Upholstered Bench | Nailhead Trim | Ashley Gilbreath Interiors

And before I wrap things up I just had to post a picture of the playhouse in the backyard:

Playhouse | Front Porch | Old Door

It’s a good thing I’ve already found an old door for our hallway, otherwise I may have had to beg the homeowner for this one- ha!

Old White Door | Front Porch

The house is actually on the market right now, and I found the listing online, so I thought it would be fun to end this post with a guessing game. The listing says the house is 3,857 square feet and that it sits on almost an acre. Once you’ve thought a number, here’s a link to the listing so you can see if you were right: Β 797 Felder Avenue, Montgomery, Alabama! πŸ˜€

Happy guessing, and happy weekend!

    Not practical for our life and black cat, but oh, how I love all that linen! (surprised my guess was in the ballpark) And if that playhouse were in my yard, my kids would have to fight me for it and it would relocate with me. πŸ˜€

    Love this home! And very fun to see it at this time….we just drove through Montgomery on our way from Michigan to Gulf Shores yesterday. I love southern architecture and would love to tour some old homes while we’re down here.

    You should notify the agent about having your pictures on the listing!! This home is amazing…..I wonder why everyone keeps leaving it!! :) ~ Kim

      Well, from what understand both Ashley and the current homeowner are “hooked on houses” and get antsy to move on to new projects after a few years! πŸ˜€ #SoundLikeAnyoneWeKnow? πŸ˜‰

  4. Shondra says

    Amazing house and amazing price! Here in the north Bay Area (CA), that house would be closer to $2M!

  5. Carrie says

    I had guessed $1.75 but then forgot it was in Alabama. Where we are in the PNW, depending on the location and the lot, it could even be more. Your work and photos are lovely!

  6. Mirinda says

    Wow! Beautiful home….but I live in Montgomery and guessed $327k…way off! And I can’t believe they have children!! Mine would have a field day with all that white….which would stay white for about 5 minutes LOL
