countryside house

This beautiful English countryside house is located near Toronto, Canada. It was built in the 1850s; the stones came from local quarries. Do you remember the top-right image in this post? As you can see, it's taken in the same house. I cannot find the words to describe how much I adore that kitchen - the La Cornue cooker and the antique copper vessels and garlic bulbs hanging from the ceiling ... I love it all.

  3. Such a lovely place ;o) who wouldn't live there - it reminds me of summer and holidays - not because we usually live like that when we are on holiday - think it must be the charming and calming atmosphere ;o)
    Have a nice evening - greetings ;o)
