A Model Home Tour

In my last post I mentioned
(at the end of my mid-life-crisis babble)
that I recently toured a model home.


Now, there is no denying that we all just love a decorated model home!  I mean who can resist, really?  Well, let me tell you - this one from Toll Brothers did not disappoint!

Let's go inside!

 Now, I apologize in advance for all the not-so-perfect cell phone pictures, and for the fact that I didn't even bother to sharpen any of the photos.  I just took too many pictures...

Anyway...
 I love this bonus room/conservatory!
Look at those windows.
Wouldn't you just love to sit and read a book there?

 This is the other end of that room.
And check out the view!

 And the ceiling!
You know I just love beadboard!

 Ok, now I want this family room.

 And the ceiling!

 And the back staircase.  On a side note, I forgot to take a picture of the front staircases...but believe me, this house has quite an entrance...

 And quite a kitchen.

 Look at all this space.
I want that stove.

 And that huge frig.

 Great office too.

 Check out the tile wall in the half bath.

 And here we are upstairs...

Another look at the fabulous family room.

 And into the master we go.
(I was standing in the sitting room but forgot to take a pic)
 This seems to be the only picture I took of the master bath.

 Because I was heading to the workout room at the end.
Now this is what I need to exercise!

 One of the spacious closets...


 And some more beadboard in another bedroom.

 So serene...

 And a nice room for boys...

 With a fun bathroom.

 It's a jack and jill bath attached to a cute girl room...

 I don't have pink in my house with boys...sigh.

In this model they even finished the walk out basement...
This is the first thing you see when you walk down.


 Then you turn and see all this!
Now, who wouldn't want to just live down here!

 Seriously, just imagine...

 Another tile wall in the bathroom.

 My kitchen isn't even this big...or nice.

 A fuzzy picture but I love the "log wall".

 Yes, another shot of the kitchen bar area that blows me away.

 And if that isn't enough, there is a wine/poker room.
How's that for a man-cave?

 Sit down, have a drink...

 Or come watch a movie over here..
If I go missing, you know where to find me!

This was just the first of two decorated model homes
 at Toll Brothers Mountain View at Hunterdon.
I will show you the other one next time.

If you are in that area of New Jersey you should really look at this new neighborhood.  Not only are the homes gorgeous, but the views are just stunning!  And whoever decorated this model did such an amazing job!  I don't think I can pick a favorite room!

What was your favorite room in this model?

  1. Wow! When can I move in?

    When we lived in Maryland there was a Model Home Village where all builders had a couple of houses each on show next to each other, fully decorated! It was great to visit.

    I do not know if it is because I am getting older, but as much as I would adore a huge beautiful house, and had one in Florida that was 4000 sq. ft. I always think about the cleaning process, which in Florida took me two full days each time,,,and then I think I want smaller.

    Thanks for sharing! It was lovely and great for ideas!

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Kind regards, Anneli in California

  3. Pretty swanky. We've always been old house people, but are thinking are next one might be newer. There's something appealing about good insulation and airtight windows!

  9. Wow, this is a beauty! I loved it from the first photo -- that exterior is just gorgeous! We had a Street of Dreams here in our town last Fall, and there were a couple of houses that were truly beautiful. I'm always drawn to kitchens and laundry rooms, and my favorite house in the tour had a huge laundry room with the most gorgeous turquoise apron-front sink! My hubby kept moving on and then returning to find me still drooling over that sink. Isn't it funny the things that stick with you when you've been looking at model homes?
