Pink Victorian House

One of my favorite styles in a home is Victorian. This pink Victorian beauty was for sale for quite awhile in our town. Then one day when I drove past the house, the for sale sign was gone! So far, I haven't noticed anything going on at the home, and it still looks overgrown. Wouldn't it be a beautiful bed and breakfast? I always enjoy staying at bed and breakfast establishments whenever possible.

For more pink Saturday posts, visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful pink Saturday! Diane

Oooo, that is one glorious house. I wonder how many square feet, how many bedrooms, how it's decorated inside.

Diane, go knock on the door and ask for a tour!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Diane.

That home is breath-taking. It would be wonderful for it to be a bed and breakfast, but I bet it would be a huge investment.

Darlene said...

Angel said...

I would love to go inside and take a look. Big old Victorian houses are the best! This pink reminds me of a Barbie Doll Dream House toy that one of my friends had when we were little. :-)

Diane, I almost flipped when I saw the photo of that house; I immediately went to your profile to see where you live.
There is a house in Waxahachie, TX that looks almost like that; and the last time I drove by, it was pink, too! I'm going to have to take a photo of it and compare. I love those grand old Victorians!

Now that is my dream house. I would love to go look inside. I think if I lived near there I would have had to act like I was interested in buying it just so I could be shown around.

Do you know what it sold for?

Hugs,
Joanne

What an adorable house!

Margie said...

What a lovely home! I love Victorian houses too, especially *pink* ones! I would love to be a peeper in those windows! I'm sure it's absolutely gorgeous inside, maybe might need some work (but so does my old house!)

Alex said...

Hi Diane...the pink Victorian house is gorgeous. Please keep us posted on the mystery buyer! :) I hope you're doing well. I haven't heard much from you in awhile. *hugs*

Grandma Faith said...

What a beautiful old pink house! Maybe the new owners will be friendly people who fix it all up and invite visitors in for an open house. Maybe the new mistress will be a blogger, and she'll join Pink Saturday. You know she must love pretty pink things, right? Thanks for stirring my imagination. Take care.

Pat said...

Oh I love that house! I love to stay at B&B's too, and I agree that would be a perfect house to make into one. I bet if you put the address into google you might find out more about the house and maybe find the realtor's listing and inside photos :-)


I hope Blogspot is working well for you again! It us for me.

Hugs, Pat

Dawn said...

Great, great house!! Since I was very (very!) young I wanted to own a B & B. Not sure that's going to happen, but I'm sooooooo loving that I'm living in a Victorian...and keep decorating as if it is a B & B. :-)

Oh Diane, I love Victorian houses and wish I had one. And a pink one would be even better. I hope the new owners come in and take over soon.
