January 2, 2020

The interior of this home reminds me of one of those I Spy books. Monte Vista was built in 1905. It is located on .43 acres in Harriman, Tennessee. They believe this home is a George Barber design. That kitchen needs an antique stove! The staircase has beautiful light fixtures on the newel posts. There are hardwood floors and original millwork. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,318 square feet. $302,000 New price: $288,500

From the Zillow listing:


Monte Vista was built in the Colonial Revival style with some Victorian features. Possibly a George Barber design. Original hardwood flooring on both levels, original millwork and pocket doors. Inglenook with fireplace in the main hall/foyer with built in seating. Beautiful staircase with decorative light fixtures on two of the newel posts and grille work at the bay window at the middle landing. The kitchen and both full baths were updated but kept the classic styling. Master suite designed with sitting and sleeping rooms along with nursery, bath and access to the back staircase. Main level wrap around porch has doric columns on limestone posts. Private second floor sitting porch/ balcony for bedroom 2. Third floor for storage or future expansion. Too many beautiful features to describe.
