MY HOUSE IS FOR SALE-PICTURES

Yep!
The HOUSE is for sale.
It is no longer HOME to me---
It now becomes a commodity--
It will be my loss but someone else's gain.

A home for them to love and live in.

I have never really shown a lot of pictures
of my house.
So-folks- today is the day.

I am going to break this up into a few
posts because I have about
fifty or more pictures.

Today I will do the outside.

Driving up you see this:
We sit below the main road a bit.
This was taken with a drone.
The main house is to the left.
To the right with the little 'porch'
is 1800 sq.ft. of heated garage
that can hold up to 6 or 7 cars.
This also backs up to a cul-de-sac
so that you can get a motorhome 
in and out of the garage easily.
If you were to come in from the water
the house looks like this-
taken with a drone:
You can see the beach---

A bit closer-
A little closer in-it looks like this--

also taken with the drone-
One of my little garden areas...
And, of course, the playhouse....

Walking up to the front door-
And that brings us to the front door...
which I will open for you in 
future post.
So, after the scrubbing and cleaning was done
I ran to WALLY WORLD to get
a couple of things....
It is always 
SUCH a treat to see what
WALLYWORLD
has to offer...
Like bananas and oranges--
ORANGE YOU GLAD I
DIDN'T SAY YELLOW?
seriously- someday SOMEONE is going
to get killed taking pictures like these
AND---
Let's not forget it is 
PACKER SEASON
in Wisconsin!
Everyone needs an outfit like this...
just sayin'....
Have a great day!
I'll be back with more pictures
of the house---

Stunning. I have no other words. (Oh and I'm talking about the house...not your Wally World friends!)

Barbara F. said...

Wow! I can't wait to see the inside! Good luck!

Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

Hi Diana, wow your house and property is gorgeous!! It must be a lot of work to stage a house to sell. I wish you a lot of luck and I hope it sells fast for you. All the best. Julie

Sylvia said...

What a beautiful home you have, Diana! I hope you much love and blessings in the future where ever you go!
Hugs my friend,
Sylvia

Tete said...

The drone shots are going to help sell this fast! Awesome photos for a listing.

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

That looks like quite a bit of property and lovely too. Your own beach makes me jealous. I would start to like summer in a house like that.

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Wow! Your home is stunning! I can't wait to see more. Sending you good selling vibes!

Susie said...

Diana, Your house is way bigger than I ever thought. :):) Very nice and so well kept. Come on girl, you know some people only have a taste in food. ;) That's like painting a house outside...I think people should take a color test before being allowed. LOL. Kidding, incase someone thinks otherwise. Where ever you go with your Hero and Family will always be your home. Blessings, xoxo,Love, Susie

20 North Ora said...

Diana - Your home is gorgeous and I'm sure will sell quickly. Not too quickly I hope for your sake. Having your sweet hubby with you will make a home wherever you are. Good luck on the sale.

Jettie said...

Love the house, hope it sells soon, and you can move forward.

Chatty Crone said...

I am speechless - breathtaking. I would love your house - but God has something better for you (and me).

Simply LKJ said...

Oh Diana, your home and property are lovely!

Sarah said...

Your property is gorgeous! I had no idea you had such a view. Can't wait to see the inside. Good luck with the sale.

Nonnie said...

What a beautiful home! I know it is packed full of memories, but the good thing is you can take the memories with you. Your home will always be with your hero and your family. I cannot even imagine what it must be like to live each day in such surroundings with the beauty of the beach and water and all those trees and gardens and Heaven only knows what nooks and crannies in the house and playhouse. You've been blessed and will continue to be.

Susan Freeman said...

Your home is beautiful and the setting is too, but you must know that I am head over heels in love with that playhouse! Whoever the next owner will be, they will be buying a home that is not only beautiful, but radiates all the love that has been living inside.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Judy said...

What a gorgeous piece of property Diana...I know it will be perfect for someone else to love soon.

Yeah, saw some of those same folks at my Wally World today too!

camp and cottage living said...

So beautiful Diana. I love the huge sandy beach!

living from glory to glory said...

Wonderful memories were made it that place and I pray a family will love it and take care of it and always be a home filled with love! Really an amazing and beautiul house and land and water and can't wait to see the inside!
I just hope no one ever takes my picture in that Wally World...

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Well, I wish I was moving to Wisconsin...I'd snatch it right up! Beautiful property! I know a family is out there waiting for this to be their forever home. It's calling to me and I'm a zillion miles away. :) xoxo, T.

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

Gorgeous! Best wishes as you move ahead on your next journey!

Pam Kessler said...

The house looks gorgeous! Hoping it sells quickly for you. And they don't want the playhouse and then you can move it with you to your new place :) BTW, those overalls are killing me! People just walk around with dog faces on around here.

Katie Clooney said...

Hi Diana! Sorry I missed you last post. Just read it now. What a beautiful home you have. I hope the selling process goes smoothly and you get your price for it. I continue to keep you and your hero in my prayers. I'm sorry to hear John is having a rough time. Keep us posted when you can.

Debby said...

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

Beautiful place Diana.....7 car garage??? I think someone with antique cars or just loves tinkering with cars should pick your place up, that would be a great place for them...I love all the space you have to roam!!!

June said...

Whaaaat? I had no idea you lived in such an amazing place sweetie. You seem so much like, well me :)
My 1750 sq. ft home would fit in your garage. This is a beauty and I'm so glad you shared. I can't wait to see what waiting for us inside. You put off such a warmth in spirit that I'm sure your home will reflect that beauty and I can't wait to see!

Do you know how much your comment meant to me? I gave Landon his hug and he did his little rocking and flapping thing and smiled at me. Your words of understanding are so sweet. I have missed so much by not keeping in touch with my sweet friends here.
sending hugs your way...

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

Lovely setting....good luck in selling, it can be stressful, so hopefully it will be a simple process for you...looking forward to peeking inside

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

Diana, your home is in a gorgeous setting. Anyone that buys it will be happy there as I know there is a happy girl that lives there now. Good luck (you don't need it) on the sale! xo ♥

Missy George said...

Your house is amazing!! Gorgeous property...For a minute there, I was waiting for the punch line..It never came..I can't believe that it won't sell fast..Just the garage alone is a bonus..Best of luck!!

Annesphamily said...

A lovely home indeed! I know you will have those you love closer to you and many, many, beautiful memories here. Prayers for you and yours. I love you my friend. xo

Have a great week my friend. I hope your Hero is doing well.
Take care, Janet W

Cecilia Bramhall said...

Beautiful house. Can't wait to see inside! Your garage is about as big as my city house. :-) Still, it is a little sad to think of it as a house and not a home.
Your Wally World pictures are always a treat. I've seen some outfits in poor taste at mine but yours? The stuff legends are made of. Hilarious!
Hugs,
Cecilia

Vee said...

What a beautiful property and so beautifully maintained! You have worked hard and so I am praying that you reap the rewards. Yes, at some point, it ceases to be home, which only means that home is waiting.

coffeeontheporchwithme said...

My oh my, Diana. That is a beautiful home you have there. It has such wonderful details, and that setting!! I loved seeing your pictures, but the one thing that I kept thinking was, "Imagine 20 years ago, if someone had told you that a little machine is going to fly up in the air and hover there and take pictures of your house for you!" Amazing! -Jenn

Terri Steffes said...

Hello, sweet Diana! Thank you for coming and visiting me. I love your home, I can see why you loved it too. I hope whomever is lucky enough to live there will love it as much as you did. It is so gorgeous from the outside, I cannot wait for your tours on the inside!

Pom Pom said...

Wow! How beautiful! I love the playhouse!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

What a beautiful place!! But it looks like a lot of work to keep up! Nancy

Carla from The River said...

Thank you for sharing your home. It is beautiful ... looking forward to the peek inside. Can we have a peek inside the playhouse too? :-) Blue Eyes can take us for the tour? :-)
Carla

Anne said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous girl! But, I'm so ready to move out of my home as well. I love our current home, it was a dream. But it's way too much for me to take care of. And I'm hoping to move somewhere a little warmer. Just like in Wisconsin, it's gets pretty cold here in IL. I'm sure your home will sell quickly. Best wishes to you on your new adventure.

Gypsy Heart said...

So gorgeous! I love the white, the yard, gardens, you name it. I can see a family living there with kids and having a blast. Wishing you the best!

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

How fortunate you are to have such a lovely home by a beach. It has to be hard to leave. I wish you all the best on your next chapter.

Kelly said...

Omg! Your house is huge and so pretty! It's a treat to get to see it in full this time. I don't feel like I've ever really seen it. What a fabulous property you live on. I can't imagine having my own private beach and that enormous garage! I can't wait to see the inside next. I hope that it doesn't take too long to sell. Someone will be lucky to have it!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diana, your house is beautiful. I was just complaining to Nel today that housing in California is sooooo expensive. You have such a vast area, and everything looks so green and groomed. Can't wait to see more!

love, ~Sheri

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Diana your home - now up for sale is beautiful and hopefully the next caretakers will find the peace and serenity your home provided you and your family. Hope it sells quickly for you.

Blondie's Journal said...

So you have been holding off on pictures of your gorgeous home, Diana! I feel for you having to sell, it's so lovely. I wish you all the best wherever life takes you. As long as you have your loved one, you have everything. ;-D

Love and hugs,

Jane

Junkchiccottage said...

Beyond beautiful my friend. Anyone would love the sq footage of the garage alone. Your home is gorgeous and the water views are stunning. Terry wants to buy just the garage lol!!! He could fill that with lots of tools. Now you just need the right buyer. Good luck let the adventure begin!
Hugs
Kris

Dayle ~ A Collection of Days said...

Your home is so stately and magnificent ... and huge!

Those Wally World pictures gave me a very big laugh. Girl, you should see the one I managed to get while at my doctor's visit last week. Lord have mercy, that woman should not have been out in public in that outfit, but nobody made me the fashion police so no ticket was issued.

FlowerLady Lorraine said...

Your home and property are absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

May the leaving be relatively easy and the right buyers come along at the right time.

Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

Bliss said...

I'm sad you're leaving!

NanaNor's said...

Hi Diana, I love having you back from your time away. O.k. I wondered why you would move from your house and now I know-how cow girl, you have a mansion to take care of! 7-8 car garage, what was your hubby thinking. The view of the lake is incredible. Can't wait to see more of the inside. Sending love your way.
Noreen

Carol said...

I know this was a difficult decision, but looking at this huge house and grounds, I can see why you needed to do this! It's gorgeous, and I'm sure it will sell very quickly. I'm excited to see the inside!

Warm hugs!
Carol

Adam said...

What treasure chest you found to get a house like that?

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Wow, this is the kind of home I see on the many HGTV shows I watch mindlessly every day! Gorgeous! So sorry you have to leave it. The pictures in the end are hilarious. I see this at our Wally World weekly. Glad to know it's not just where I live which is dubbed "the 315-ers" ie. redneck county of NY!

Cozy Little House said...

Your home is beautiful! The above commenter I agree with: like a house from HGTV!
Brenda

Launna said...

Diana... WOW... it looks gorgeous, so much to love about it... I am sure someone will come along and want to make it their forever home... I will pray and send out good wishes for you and your family too...

I definitely shows well from the outside xox

Linda said...

I love your house!!! It is magnificent!!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Your home is so lovely, Diana. I can see all the love there......I know this must be difficult for you. Hoping it all goes smoothly and you find a cozy nest to settle into. xx K

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Wow. Wow. Wow!!! I don't know how you ever went inside with such an amazing outdoors area to enjoy! Such an incredibly beautiful home and view Diana, and I pray that the Lord blesses you and John and helps you through the moving/selling process into a new place that will be just as perfect for you! Hugs and love!

Cranberry Morning said...

On now to read the other posts. God bless you two as you make this transition. I know what you mean by a house becoming a commodity. One of these days soon we will be downsizing, and that's just the mindset needed. xo

Kathleen Charm Bracelet Diva {At Home} said...

Oh my gosh what a gorgeous house and lot! I know it will sell really quickly! Wish we were still in the market for a house, I would surely try and convince my husband to buy yours! Looking forward to seeing the next pictures....Sorry I have not been around a lot lately. Summer and kids and now home school have kept me crazy busy but I'm hoping to get back to a regular blogging schedule soon. Have a great week, Diana! xoKathleen

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Your home is stunning!!! So beautiful and so much room to run and play! I hope just the right family buys it and gives it all the love you have given it. Good luck!

carolann said...

Diana your home is lovely, lovely.(Breathtaking) You have put a lot of work into it all summer Painting and all. It must be hard to leave this stunning home. With all that you have in it. Do you leave all the furniture and curtains?
I pray they soon show up. So then you can start to move on. I mean any of us here by the comments. Like me. It looks like a home for movie stars. Spot on everything. Spotless.
Thank you again for showing your home. I have prayed for you from day one when you said your going to sell and downsize. Love you .

Lucille said...

You certainly have a unique home, Diana! So spacious and well organized! Sad that you must leave. Best of luck with the sale and I hope you will be able to find something cozy and to your taste. My regards to John! I am always very sad at how things turned out for him. He certainly is a very courageous man and so are you!

Sweet Tea said...

Your home is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for sharing it with us now.

Ronda@islandmother said...

I hope Diana it sells quickly so you and your hubby can move forward. Thank you for your visit to my blog and your kind words lit up my day. Hugs to you.
