Do you have a dream home?

I have a dream home.  It's just down this avenue.

It's an old southern plantation that actually belonged to my grandparents. Here is a photo of them. I never knew this set of grandparents. They were my Daddy's parents and they died before I was born.
In the early1900's they purchased a plantation that was used as their summer home.  When their other home called the Leesburg Plantation burned to the ground they decided to make Laurelwood Plantation their permanent home. You can read about it here.  The home and property is for sale and I would love to see it purchased by someone who has the means to restore her to the beautiful southern plantation that she once was.  I like to dream about it being back in my family. I love historical homes and South Carolina history.  This home has special meaning to me so I will be following it closely. If you have a special interest in the restoration of old homes make sure you head over to my other blog the Legacy of Laurelwood and become a follower.
