House Tour: On Pinehurst Place

I am excited to bring you this house tour from Pinehurst Place today.

Dear friends and neighbors down the street on Pinehurst Place are moving to Nashville.  We are so sad to see them leave but happy at the same time that they will be in Nashville with their son and daughter and their families.  Their new granddaughter will be fortunate to have them there and they will be happy to be close for all the occasions of her childhood.  Still, there will be a big hole on Pinehurst Place when they go.

I was pleased when she agreed to let me give a house tour before the house is dismantled for the move.
