A sneak preview of our beautiful landscaped gardens and 19th century Italinate-styled Mansion House 🌸

Through the front doors you find yourself in a foyer dominated by four unique Corinthian columns. Oddly, it’s a very welcoming, special space to walk in to...especially when the light is pouring in. 💎

The arrangement of Montfort Hall is a direct reflection of the original owner, William Montfort Boylan. His love of entertaining was reflected in the plan of his house. The sliding pocket doors between the grand rooms on either side of the house created one large space that was designed to accommodate recitals and parties. 🥂

Montfort Hall was one of the first structures in Raleigh to have gas lighting, indoor plumbing and a water closet. The existing bathrooms are already beautiful...just need a little TLC. ☺️

Did you know Montfort Hall has a sister house? The Barracks in Tarboro, NC. (They are scary similar!) The architect for both was Englishman William Percival. He wasn’t in the area very long and is a bit of an enigmatic figure in the architectural history of North Carolina. Does anyone know what other Raleigh structures he had a hand in?🧐

Favorite room hands down. That worn, warm plaster. 🙌🏻 This will be one of up to ten guest rooms in the house. It faces downtown getting incredible light all day long and looks out over the acre lot.

The stained glass cupola is just...ugh. Who wants to come stare at it with us endlessly? Statement of the villa for sure.✨

She’s 160 years old and has a whoooole lota stories to tell...we can’t wait to open her doors to you one day.

(Yes, she is a she. Yes, we know she’s named after a man.🤷🏻‍♀️)

A delightfully odd pair, roughly 150 years apart in age — love this juxtaposition of the Mini and the Italianate house. Recently bought this car from a pal relocating from Georgetown to Brooklyn. After picking it up in DC, I drove it up to our beloved country house (our own version of Mr. Blandings’ dream house) in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania where I was to paint our carriage house/barn. The Mini Cooper is circa 2007 and the house sometime between 1850-1870 (the porch was added in the 1930s replacing an original smaller structure) #italianatearchitecture #wraparoundporch #porch #italianatestyle #minicooperlife #italianatehouse #minioftheday #oldhouses #italianate #lovemini

Podia #Inspo - Double height living spaces with brick vault ceilings and timber herringbone floors are a Podia favourite in the famous Italianate House. Designed by @renatodettorrearchitects this contemporary family home in Surry Hills, Australia, was converted from the 1860's building and the 1990's office fit-out of grandiose style, into a contemporary family home. This stunning project received a Commendation for Residential Architecture at the NSW AIA Architecture Awards and we absolutely love it.
