The houses of Serenbe

17 September 2014

I’ve mentioned the magical land of Serenbe before, but basically, it’s as close to an idyllic planned community as I can imagine. There are homes, a few restaurants, adorable shops in little “downtown” pockets, a farmer’s market and organic farm, an Inn, stables, nature trails, edible landscaping (blueberries planted along walkways!), an outdoor theater, and community in-ground trampolines. Yes. And aside from all that, everything – and I mean everything, from the trash cans to the real gas lamps lining the streets – is impeccably designed. I snapped a few house photos on my last trip (not creepy at all) and couldn’t resist sharing them here!

I sure do love a good bungalow. Which one is your favorite?

Too many favorites! Did you get to see Ali Harper’s home in person? I know you and I both enjoyed following along with her building process! Thanks for sharing these, Em!

@Meredith YES! I got to have breakfast with her in it and hang out on her porch! It is even better in person, if you can believe it :)

The vines on the porch of that house are TO DIE FOR. Ugh, I wish we had more of that style of house here in Australia.

I LOL’d at this because I’ve totally taken pictures of houses in my neighborhood…with my cell phone…trying to be discreet. I just really, really like houses- Ha! This post makes me have house envy. My dream is to one day live in a tiny stone cottage, so I definitely need to visit this town!
