A yummy Spanish style home in our little town…

I’ve passed by this home….many a time.

Landscaped it in my minds eye

it always looked a bit…well…undone on the outside


But I could see she was a beaut.

I stepped inside the other day yes I was invited

And fell in love :: cue soppy music ::

Mizner Style 1930’s…one of the first of the homes in our little town…


It has been owned by one family the whole time

so... has so much integrity

and original fixtures and fittings


You can really feel the soul of this home in the gorgeous floors and windows and doors


and it doesn’t scream ostentatious which a few or more than a few homes around these parts do

But it DOES have ten bedrooms and 6 baths





AND the original kitchen…or semi original kid you not.

Dayum I love that sink…Now THAT is a baby washing sink!

So…this vintage mission house was for sale for 696K

I thought I can figure that out…somehow we could swing that.

Um…I missed the 2 mill in front of the 695K


But maybe you can swing it….check it out here

So cool. Loved the tour and that sink is the best!

Right, Carla? I'll be looking for it at my local Habitat when whoever the lucky soul buys the house...and WE KNOW they are ripping out the sink. I'll put it in the barn we are going to renovate (one decade!). Yep.

Beautiful place. Not only is the sink cool but the exposed pipes are a great detail.

What a lovely house....sometimes the older details are what creates the true beauty of the home...thanks for the tour.

so beautiful, so much character and that kitchen!!! You should send that over to House of Turq, she'd get a kick!

The upside of them being the type to leave the landscaping alone is that (as you say) they left the original details more or less intact!

What a gorgeous place -- and that sink is a conversation starter for sure. Thanks for the tour!
