New Photos of My Dream Home

While doing a little web browsing this evening,
I found my house... again.
This time, I found even more photographs--
ones I've never seen before!
I was so excited, I just had to share them with you:

(click for a better view)

The little cape nestled on its quiet street

Another view of the parlor

The guesthouse/studio (I didn't even know existed!)
Do you see the view??!

I don't know what this is...
I'd probably paint over it, though :P

The back of the house with its beautiful studio

The unbelievably gorgeous backyard

Lovely side view

The private dock (enough said.)
... the private dock!!! *swoon*

I love the expansive windows in the guesthouse ♥

The beautiful, beautiful garden...

And one last final, breath-taking view of the yard.

I can feel my heart literally ache 
as I look at these pictures...
... literally ache.

  1. What a gorgeous place!!! The little guest house is perfect, like an artist studio.

  2. I'm sure you'll get your dream house!! What you dream about you bring about!! It's sooo nice!

  3. Beautiful home. May all of your New England cottage dreams come true ;) I love the studio!!! I can see my self writing away in there and writing my children's books! Do you come from New England, or The Cape?

  4. I can understand why you ache everytime you look at it. There isn't one thing I don't like about it. The pond and gardens are the icing on the cake! Thanks for sharing.

  5. That truly IS a gorgeous home! My best guess is that the old London phone booth door is there because the owners of that house are/were British expats who missed home (there are MANY British expats on the Cape). ;)

  6. I honestly believe that if you visualize a dream you can make it happen. That is EXACTLY what I did to finally make my Maine seaside cottage a reality. Oh yah, and LOTS of hard work too, but worth every drop of sweat equity.

    This cottage is YOU and only YOU would've noticed the tiny Nantucket basket I had sitting outside the tiny faerie doorway in the tree.

    I am working in Boston this week and opening our little cottage in Maine this weekend. So next week's posts will be of FoxDrink Ledges, my place on earth.

  7. This half-cape is perfect! Wood floors, beams, fireplaces, sloping ceilings, a touch of the modern, a great view, stellar landscaping..seriously awesome.
    Thanks so much for sharing this. If you have one of those gadgets that show who comes to your location will come up again and again because I love these photos so much!
    Wow! :)

  8. Erin, Erin, Erin!! How are you, girl??!! This house is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! You must do everything that you can to get it!! Can you imagine blogging from that studio?? Or better yet, outside by the pond??!! Oh, it's so lovely and so perfect for YOU. And it's in Sandwich, so close to many great little places... siiiiiiggggghhhhH!!!! It's so good to be back. I've missed you and look forward to reading more from you. Happy spring, dearie:)


  9. oh, p.s., you could put a little adirondak chair on the dock and blog from there:).

  10. Reminds me of the house I rented in Ivoryton years ago. It backed up to Fall River.
    I can see why it's your dream house.

  11. Oh my gosh.....who wouldn't absolutely love to live there?? My heart is aching too! Thank you for sharing this with us... Love it!!

  12. What a gorgeous place. I love the garden!

  13. It's lovely. Great yard, private dock, wow. The rooms look nice. I even like the British phone booth. I would probably keep it, nice touch of whimsy.

  14. Wow! It's a beautiful place! I really like the garden area and I'm also swooning on the private dock. Well, my sister loves browsing in the internet about home remodeling, roofing (Calgary style), home gardening, and interior designs inspiration. She's also a fan of a particular Calgary roofing company in our place since she's currently studying real estate business.

    Thanks for sharing the nice pictures, Erin!

  15. I grew up in this house and I loved it dearly. My parents were married in the backyard on the dock in 1980 and my dad's mom had the house before we lived there. That house defines my childhood and I'm so glad I happened upon your blog, you just brought back years of wonderful memories to the surface!


Thanks for your thoughts!
