Brooke's House Part 1

In a previous post, I mentioned that I would love to share some more of my niece's house. 

It is hard to tell in this photo but their house has a rock facade that gives an elegant setting.  There is a fountain that springs up from a small pool as you walk up the stairs to the front door.
There is also a front patio area that is enclosed with a rock wall.

You enter the double front doors into a spacious entry area.
You enjoy a panoramic view of  several rooms.

The Living Room

The Living Room Fireplace is a focal point.

The Dining Room Buffet

The Music Room with its Tropical Flair.

Moving on in to the kitchen area.

This is the kitchen nook.
If I could say I have a favorite it would be this room.
It has doors and windows that make you think you are outdoors.
I also love the warm color on the walls.

Close up of the hanging light over table.

The long-necked rooster gives a touch of whimsy.

Stone fireplace in Family Room

Brooke had this oil painting done to add a punch of color in Family Room.

Again the Family Room has many doors and windows that open to the backyard.
The architectural pieces give a world traveled feel.

This post will be continued with features of the backyard and the rest of the house.

Hope you enjoyed your tour...more to come!
