Grand Old House

This listing detail has a number of interior pictures and it appears beautifully restored. The living spaces seem quite grand and the grounds seem very well-kept. The upkeep would be daunting no doubt. I would need to change the wallpaper in the bathrooms though.

The fence.

I wonder how long it took to make all those pickets for that fence.

Looking a bit better these days

This house is located at 386 Arlington Road northwest of Washington, LA. It and its 1.73 acres were offered for sale earlier this year at just under $500K. There were apparently no takers.
