The entry to the Cobb house was what first hooked me on the place. It was one of only a couple places where you could still feel how regal this place truly was when it was originally built. The original fireplace and pocket doors remain, as does the beautiful stairway.
We have changed the entrance a little. The doorway to the former master bedroom has been removed and we will be closing off the area below the stairway for a walk-in pantry that is now accessible from the kitchen. Here are some pics that hopefully show what we’re doing:
If you would like to see the entry I made previously about the entrance w/ more pictures – click HERE. Also – it’s worth mentioning that we got a STEAL of a deal on our plumbing fixtures. We got really high quality products – claw foot tub, many oil rubbed bronze fixtures, Kohler sinks, etc etc – for an amazing deal from faucet.com. It was about a 1/3rd of the price of the local big box stores or show rooms. And all the stuff came just as ordered. I was so impressed with our salesperson that I’m going to give her some props here. If you need to order any fixtures, contact Megan Bedford for help. She was spectacular and even helped me get deeper discounts b/c of our large order to get us in our budget! Thanks Megan (pronouced Mee-gan FYI). All fixtures and accessories in the house for $7K including shipping! Amazing.
