O, Christmas Tree

The last house on the Waxahachie tour of homes was large and impressive with a wow factor, especially the decorations.

wowhousk11It was crowded because there was so much to linger over and admire.

wowhouseThe house was build in 1900.  As you enter, there is a living room or parlor on the left and one on the right.  I think these were intended as one for males and one for females.

Even focusing on the Christmas decorations, I’m not sure I took pictures of everything because they were everywhere.

wowhouse2There was at least one tree in every room.

wowhouse3First, I want to apologize for the quality of the pictures.  There were lots of windows with strong light streaming in.  Some of the Christmas decorations also had focus lightning.  So there are my excuses.  But I hope you can still enjoy this post.

wowhousefThe kitchen was large.  At some point a large extension was added to the back of the house.  It started somewhere in the kitchen.  This part is definitely modern.

wowhousegThe kitchen exited into the main hallway that ran the length of the house.

wowhouskpThe next room off the hallway was a fish and media room.  So all the decorations featured fish.

wowhouskqThere were eight large aquariums.

wowhousktAlso in the hallway was this stairway that I’m guessing led up to the master suite.  It was roped off.

wowhouskuAcross the hall from the fish room was another sitting room.

wowhouskxCouldn’t resist a shot of the pristine backyard.

wowhouskxxThe large side porch had plenty of room for this antique stove and a generous walking space.

All in all, a stunning house filled with Christmas ideas.  Now, a must be really large space will be needed to store all those displays.
