In April 2008 Tom and Nancy aldinger from Dallas acquired an unusual mansion Cartwright – Victorian residence of the XIX century, listed in the national register of historical attractions. The couple turned for help to the talented specialist Sarah Greenman in order to restore the original standing of the building and give it an incredibly attractive and aesthetic appearance.
The magnificent dream house had a huge size with a total area of 650 square meters and a stunning layout, which includes six bedrooms, five bathrooms with a toilet, a cozy living room, a functional kitchen and an elegant dining room.
Originally built in 1883, the residence was erected by the architect Matthew Cartwright (Matthew Cartwright) and his wife Mary Davenport (Mary Davenport). In the construction of this structure was used yellow pine and cypress, while the original design had neither electricity nor running water.
Although the cottage was built in the Victorian era, it has the features of the Renaissance and the second empire.
In the previous photo you can see the building in the 1970s in its emergency condition. In the process of reconstruction, the steel supports of the architects were changed to restored wooden piers.
Care of the historical structure is a hard work. Every year a couple spends from 5,000 to 10,000 thousand dollars a year to maintain it.
The interior design of the mansion was designed in the classical style with elements of different directions. For example, handmade wooden parts welcome visitors in the hallway.
The cheerful yellow lounge is located to the right of the lobby. High ceilings and a central fireplace give this room an intimate atmosphere.
The elegant dining area is connected to the living room and kitchen, where a crystal chandelier hovers over a large walnut dining table.
The parade was complemented by an elegant staircase with stunning railings and fencing.
She was accented by the unique artwork of the hostess of the building. The floor in the lobby includes in its design several shades of beige-brown tiles with sapphire triangles.
Double doors lead to an office filled with unusual furniture from the 1880s and a flat grand piano from John broadwood Son of london.
The home office is equipped with a large wooden table and two green leather armchairs, which makes the room feel like a vintage gentleman’s club.
On the second floor, the master bedroom is decorated with a large walnut bed with a regal canopy.
Note that the striped wallpaper on the walls and the red painted ceiling add a playful atmosphere to the boudoir.
The third floor consists of two large attic rooms, separated by partitions. They are decorated with original walls and wooden plank floors.
The owner of the apartment uses this area to store sewing items.
The bedroom on the lower tier with a bathroom was decorated in a sophisticated and elegant style. The interior design is complemented by a canopy bed, exquisite wooden furniture and unique accessories.
The main bathroom was divided into two zones with a walk-through shower and a legs-bath with a stained-glass window and a view of the backyard.
The kitchen and dining room were completely reconstructed, since the original structure did not have this area in its layout.
The guest lounge does not receive abundant natural light from the windows, but the warm yellow color of the walls and the wooden furniture set with magnificent textiles give this room an incredible aesthetic appeal. The original bay window with leaded glass is used by the owners of the residence as a playroom for children and grandchildren.
In the previous photo you can see aerial photographs of this structure, made in the 1950s. The house has more than 70 columns and elegant balconies on the second floor, which gives the exterior a special charm and incredible beauty.
