Back in June of last year (seems hard to believe it was that long ago, where does the time go...) I wrote a post about an old house that was abandoned. Here's a few photos to remind you...
Many of you commented on the sadness of such a fine house being left alone to slowly deteriorate.
Well, my friends, I've got some good news that you're gonna love! Here is the same house today...
What a HUGE difference!
It is in the process of being restored. For those of us who love old houses this is great news!
There is still a lot of work to be done... some brick work on the chimneys and around the base of the house as well as some woodworking repair to the bay windows and balcony. And, I have no idea how the interior restoration is coming along.
All in all she's looking mighty chipper at the care she's receiving!
The view from the front porch. Can't you imagine yourself sitting in a rocking chair admiring this lovely tree?
The Saxon Scarborough House was originally built in 1877 and sat on 32 acres of land.
Someone is lovingly restoring this beauty currently called Saxon Manor. It is going to be available for weddings and special events. Isn't that fantastic?
I'll keep y'all posted on her progress!
Till next time,
