I noticed that I forgot to show the front of the house...oops! But here it is:
|Their basement door is so charming, isn't it?|
The people they rent the house from lovingly restored and renovated the house. The house has many small rooms and I think they solved some of the space issues very well. There is no open concept in this old house and three levels with narrow stairs.
|Their reading room right next to the dining room. With the beautiful red and functioning shutters|
The Bottom Level Dining Room:
|Their wedding silhouette which was a present from me (you can see my shadow cuts here).|
|Their coffee station with a photo from their trip to Paris.|
|Their custom made dining room table with a free standing pendant lamp as the dining room chandelier since they don't have electrical wiring for overhead lighting. Love this idea!|
On the second level they have a huge walk-in closet, bathroom and 2 bedrooms.
One of my favorite rooms of the house is the third level which features beautiful old beams and a narrow old barn staircase. From the windows you can overlook the old roofs of my home town. So cute! And it's the only area of the house with an open concept. Takes a while to get all the way up there but it's worth it.
Here are some of the beautiful views from their top floor windows. Sigh! What was I thinking moving so far away?
|The "Bayersturm" and the church gardens on the right.|
Isn't it a cute little house?
I love it! My kids always feel like they are in a fairytale when they roam around the neighborhood of the old fishing district and the rest of the town. Oh by the way my hometown's first settlers arrived no later than the 8th century and in 1333 Lohr was granted town rights. It's impressive how old this place is, isn't it. (If you want to read more about Lohr, you can do it by clicking here.)
This is the history that I miss so much in the U.S. of A. but I sure love the friendly Americans and miss them when I visit the (somewhat) grumpy Germans.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Next week I will be blogging from the U.S. again. So come back and visit me.
Talk to you soon und guten Tag.
