I am a huge Cary Grant fan. I love his humor, his movies, and his glamour! He always had such style about him, whether going broke in “Mr. Blandings Builds his House of Dreams”, or finding himself with one wife too many in “My Favorite Wife”! A set director once said that you can’t put him in just any room. He was so handsome, that he really had to have a fabulous set to stand up to him! This house could manage our dear Cary very well! Every room is delightful.
Notice that this home is really all on one floor. The lot is over an acre, which is why there is so much room to have everything on one level. I just love these old lots – sloping enough for interest, but level enough to easily enjoy the house and grounds. Here we are in the foyer. This is my favorite type of front door. Notice the large, but very proportioned rooms. Perfection. Americana and Southern style at it’s finest.
The living room is so serene. The cream paneling and the lovely neutrals make this room a quiet, soothing retreat. The cream silk curtains, the lovely patterned rug, the textured sofa and rattan chair all give interest without competing with one another. I really love the portraits of famous Americans throughout the home. It lends to the American beauty of the home so well!
