~ new haven


Spent the weekend in New Haven, Missouri visiting my brother and his family. Their property is amazing! Their house was originally built in the 1800's and has been renovated to maintain some of the original look and details. 

Check out the kitchen below. The incredible upgraded cabinets beautifully conceal high tech appliances including a dishwasher, refrigerator, and ovens.



Those walls! I've never seen anything like it!

The house is full of rooms. It took me 2 days to find my way around. This space is off the back porch and is open to the kitchen and pantry. Sort of a breakfast room...


Here is another dining space off the kitchen...


Charming stencil designs were used throughout the house around the doors and windows, and as added detail here and there... I was obsessed!

This door leads to a huge pantry. My brother and his wife have 4 boys, ages 15, 15, 15, (triplets) and 13 :) So the pantry is stocked and used on a regular basis as you can imagine. 


This is a side door and entryway which leads to a charming herb garden just outside...



Another side door that opens to the herb garden.


The herb garden has the most spectacular views of the property...



The expansive grounds are amazingly green and lush.


This is my youngest nephew taking my mom (Grammy) on a ride. ATVs are not hard to find with this acreage and 4 teenage boys.


I adored all the light fixtures!

More stenciling...

The doors are all painted and have this awesome hardware...


Storage space in the hall, stenciling.

One of five bedrooms!

Love the painted french doors to the bathroom...

My favorite painted door!




All the bathrooms have these pottery bowl sinks.






Back outside, there are multiple barns and other structures on the property...

This barn is so impressive!


I mean, wow.





Grammy on a ride!


The herb garden...








This porch leads to that breakfast room outside the kitchen...


















This visit felt similar to living in a boys dorm. My youngest son, my brother's four sons, plus another boy cousin = lots of teenage boys!

Obviously, I am sharing only a taste of this house. After all, I was there visiting family. Plus, this house has so many rooms! There are living rooms, dining rooms, family rooms, rec rooms, bedrooms,  bathrooms, even a basement. Oh! The laundry room was as big as my family room! 

This kind of rustic charm is not something you see everyday. I soaked up all the details and couldn't wait to share! Maybe next time I'll get even more. Can you imagine this beautiful property in the fall?

What a great job you did on this post. I don't even know how you narrowed it down to make a post. That place is insane as am I letting a 13 year old take me on a ride through woods with hills and puddles! Wonderful memories!
