Until then I thought I would take a few quick photos of the house as I know many of you have asked for pictures and I am honored to share a little of our old farmhouse.
Our home was built in 1831 for the Robert Hilands family, a prominent landowner and leader in the community. The property originally spanned over 300 acres but was sold off piece by piece. It is now nearly an acre. This is a side view with one of my sons, Noah, playing in the yard with our two Golden Retrievers, Beau and Max.

Our front porch
This chandelier is in our front entry hall and many people ask if it is original to the house. I actually purchased it about 5 years ago from Nieman Marcus.
A view of our living room with the original bookcases, fireplace and moldings.
A slightly dark pic of the living room but I love this view
Another view of the living room. I adore old architectural pieces and found this old moulding at a lovely shoppe here in Pittsburgh. I had no idea what I would do with it but knew I would find a place. It sits on top of the living room mirror and I absolutely love it!
A closer look at the molding
I hope you enjoyed getting to know our home a bit better and I hope you'll visit again. You're always welcome!
Proud to be sharing here~Open House Party
