Sometimes in life – and in houses – all the elements align so naturally and so beautifully, it feels like all is right in the world.
This 1885 home in St. Marys, Georgia is one of those special places.
Located in the heart of the historic district, this darling 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is currently for sale.
The inviting cottage exudes charm in a natural, unpretentious way.
That gorgeous brick fireplace…
There are actually 3 working fireplaces in this house.
French doors in the dining room lead out to an enclosed courtyard.
And check out the gorgeous main floor bedroom suite:
The shiplap walls continue into the ensuite bathroom…
Is that not the most perfect little slice of old house heaven you have ever seen?
The colorful, soulful artwork and loving decor are just divine!
House Crazy Sarah could literally live in this sweet bathroom!
But the beauty continues…
Every nook and cranny in this home is a delight to behold.
Beautiful heart pine floors run throughout the entire house, even the kitchen.
The kitchen is not large but it is warm and functional.
Whimsy and vintage elements are interwoven expertly throughout this home.
In the breakfast area off the kitchen, there is another set of French doors leading out to the lush courtyard.
And then there’s this little pass-through hallway/office space adorned with original artwork:
Not a grey paint color to be found! House Crazy Sarah is utterly in love.
But the rooms keep coming…
There is a cozy, wood-paneled family room.
The mark of a well-decorated vintage home is when you have a hard time finding the tv.
Let’s have a look upstairs…
Sweetness abounds on the well-appointed second floor.
There is a small sloped-roofed den area at one end where the tv is more noticeable, but only as an afterthought.
What you notice is the pleasing architecture and the coziness of the room.
A large upstairs bedroom:
Look at those built-in bookshelves and the window seat!
(Again, tv an afterthought.)
One of the most precious rooms in the house:
The exposed brick chimney is so gorgeous.
And one more wonderful bedroom to top it all off:
Everything fits together so harmoniously – a visual delight!
Outside in the landscaped backyard…
There is also a detached 2-car garage with an apartment/in-law suite upstairs.
Alas, this gorgeous home does not come cheap at a current list price of $845,000.
Still, how nice it is to have a peek inside, if only on the internet.
