Did you know there's yet another great home to tour right in our own backyard?
The Southern Living Idea House opens tomorrow, Saturday, June 2nd in Senoia, GA!
In case you didn't see our post a couple of weeks ago....we last blogged about the HGTV Green House available to tour at Serenbe (click the following link to read that blog and get the info on how to tour that home- http://stephensandstephens.blogspot.com/2012/05/check-out-hgtv-green-house-at-serenbe.html ). We're crazy about homes, which is why we love our job. Touring homes is like shopping for shoes to us....instant bliss!
You don't want to miss this charming circa 1830's farmhouse renovation. It's a first for Southern Living because it's a "renovation" idea home (instead of a building a new home they took an old home and renovated it). The home was lifted and setteled just a few yards away from its original location and has undergone a beautiful transformation. We're so glad that Southern Living and the builders/developers saw the value in saving a beautiful historic home. Too many of our historic homes in our area are being torn down or sit vacant or are left to deteriorate. We love our historic homes and "squares" here in GA. Congratulations to Senoia as well because this is the first time Southern Living has returned to a town to do a 2nd Southern Living home. There's just something about Senoia!
Here's the details on the Southern Living Idea House:
1. Location - 57 Morgan Street, Senoia, GA 30276
2. Grand Opening is Saturday, June 2nd from 11:00am - 5:00pm. After the grand opening, the home is open through December 23rd. It's closed on Monday & Tuesdays, open Wednesday - Saturday from 11:00am - 5:00pm, and open Sundays from 1:00-5:00.
