You cannot take this REALTOR® anywhere without her having to look up listings, needing a moment (or two) to admire houses, and dream up what could be. Sorry, not sorry! Here's a shout-out to all who've had to slow down, circle back around, stop in the oddest places or hang on to me while I lean out a window to get a good shot. Thank you!
Just like last weekend during a quick (surprise) trip to Syracuse, NY. The beauty pictured below with its classic Italianate features was the first one to catch my eye while riding along Main Street in Canastota. How could I not admire the paired arched windows with their hood moldings, and the wide eaves with their large brackets? I am also a big fan of the colors - a deep navy blue with off-white accent trim - and, of course, the front porch! I am guessing, it was built around the turn of the century, 1900 give or take a few, and rehabbed beautifully not too long ago.
♥ It's always been the vintage, the old house charm and the original details that I adore the most, that draw me in, make my [REALTOR®] heart flutter, and prompt me to pause, to listen, and then to retell their stories. I specialize in finding and marketing charming homes that are unique and rich in character, or history, or both. I believe in preservation, second chances, saving the pink bathrooms, and front porch living. In this series I highlight charming homes that I am listing to find just the right buyer for or I am admiring with my special clients; or that have simply caught my eye while exploring the [historic] communities of Maryland and [far] beyond. Adore charming homes as much as I do? Then I'd love it if you'd follow me on Instagram, @onceuponahaus is where I grow my curated collection. ♥
