I hope that you had a chance to share with me yesterday’s Fabulous Farmhouse Tour. What a treat to visit this beautiful farm.
Today I want to take you on a tour of the rest of the farm: the pool house and outdoor dining area. And a visit to some cute chicks and goats and other farm critters.
So let’s get going.
Fabulous Farmhouse Tour Continues
When you walk out the back door of the main farmhouse, you can see the rolling green pastures and trees as you walk down a path to the pool house and pool.
This pair of exterior house doors shows off the pretty soft grey blue/green.
and the back porch with another comfy swing. I love the little lamps that are used throughout the exterior of the house.
Behind another blue door
you enter the pool house with sofas surrounded by shiplap. The drapes are burlap ~ before burlap became so popular. You can either watch TV, enjoy the outdoor views or play pool. If you saw my Living Room Tour, you’ll know why I love the aqua sofa.
Notice the pig sitting on the saw horse table. Little piggies everywhere.
I love this goat cart. All the floors in the pool house are concrete ~ a smart idea for a room that gets so much traffic.
A small kitchen serves the pool house. Notice the bottom of an olive bucket that has been converted into a lamp.
In the center of the room is the pool table which is sometimes used as a buffet table for parties.
On the opposite wall is a vintage bench for extra seating. The “tractor seat” wall art is just perfect for the space. The brick wall gives the room the feeling that is has been added onto over the years.
Another guest retreats offers a private bath.
Now, let’s go outside. The French doors in the pool house open up completely to create a true indoor/outdoor space. The view to the pool is spectacular. You can see over the bridge in the background to a seating area surrounding a fire pit. I spent a lovely October evening out there under the stars solving the world’s problems with some girlfriends.
Beautiful flower pots are everywhere.
A covered outdoor kitchen and dining area provides a lovely spot for enjoying meals. Last week we had an awesome brunch there.
Now, let’s go visit the animals.
Goats are a favorite on the farm. Each one has a name, some are for milk, some for meat. All are loved and treated like family. One time we just missed by a few minutes goat twins being born. They were so tiny. Goats are fun to watch because they just love to play. They are mostly harmless ~ just watch the ones with the horns.
Here they come.
They will hop on anything.
And get into everything.
Here’s the daddy goat. His name is James Dean.
A large chicken coop houses several varieties of chickens. They also have names (one of them is Tina Turner) and are gracious enough to pay for their keep with delicious eggs.
The roosters are kept out of the chicken coop.
In the coop looking out.
But bunnies are allowed in. Unfortunately, this little guy (or girl) got one of its eyes pecked out by a chicken.
Out in the pasture, Strawberry and Bullet have the easiest job on the farm: eat grass and look pretty.
It’s time to leave the farm. I’ve hope you have enjoyed the visit. As you leave, you will pass the windmill ~ reminiscent of a simple life of long ago.
Again, thanks for letting me share this wonderful farm with you.
If only in our dreams.
