“Never judge a book by its cover” – let us admit this classic advice that applies to nearly every aspect of life. Take that movie that looked hilarious only for you to realize that trailer used the one good joke only in the entire movie. Similarly, looks can be deceiving in the housing market. For instance, take a look at this ordinary, casual-looking house that we have for you here which cannot be called a Historical House at all. (We will prove you wrong later)
Looks quite plain, right?
Located in Newport, Oregon, this little house has more than what originally meets the eye. The interior is, well, *speechless*.
The woman who is selling this opulent home is Almine Barton; or, to be precise, Almine Barton the Right and Honorable Dowager Countess of Shannon.
The house is filled with antique furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries. From the moment your walk through its doors, this house transports you back into the grandeur and glory of history.
“When I went in and saw the little space, it didn’t feel right to me.” Barton made *some* changes and, well, voila!
Alongside the beautiful antique furniture, Barton opted for stained glass. Why? Read on to find out.
She says, “We have 18th-century stained glass in many of the windows and just like in a cathedral, the darker interior makes these windows light up like gems throughout the day. As the light changes, the windows change.”
The Dowager Countess adds, “It’s like living inside a Rembrandt painting.”
The interior is a mixture of various styles including Renaissance, Elizabethan and Baroque.
You can get this amazing home for $400,000 (only).
