I even now don’t forget the initial time I walked into Will and Neal’s aged home. Jeb and I ended up on a house tour and theirs was one particular of our final stops. We really wished to see it for the reason that, from the outside the house, it was a smaller variation of Ghetto Mansion. I repeat … from the exterior. Similar salmon shade paint, identical white trim, same home windows.
Then we walked inside and recognized these fellas were being way out of our league. I’m not joking when I say that it looked like a little something from a journal. It was very clear the proprietors experienced a lot more style than I could ever hope to have and we determined we experienced to meet up with them and make them our mates. Those were being Jeb’s correct terms.
It took a tiny little bit of stalking, but we eventually tracked them down. I’m joking…mostly. No, but very seriously when we did eventually fulfill Will and Neal in person, they turned out to be just about the loveliest men you could ever hope to fulfill. They had been humble and down-to-earth and took our gushing around their lovely house in stride.
Flash forward a yr or two and they are now dwelling in what we call “the massive residence on Primary.” You know the one particular: white, two story, Victorian, magnificent. If you imagined we were intrigued by the scaled-down house, you can consider just how poorly we wished to see this one particular.
Are you curious but? I hope so because this Friday and Saturday evenings, Victoria Preservation Inc. or “VPI” is internet hosting a Christmas tour of the “Big Property.” Technically, it is the Levi-Welder Household, 403 N. Key St., but to me it’s just Will and Neal’s home. Both nights will consist of a tour of the property in all its Christmas splendor (browse: 13 Christmas trees). Santa will be there to consider shots and lots of other vacation treats to delight in.
I will convey to you that I’ve been in this dwelling when it isn’t adorned for Xmas and it is outside of. They have managed to make a fashionable nevertheless historic vibe that you seriously only see on HGTV. Plus, you can satisfy Will and Neal who have swiftly moved into my major 10 favored people ever. They are sort, hilarious, and cute, and have generously opened their dwelling to the community. I can not consider of a much better way to commit an evening that wandering all-around a single of Victoria’s most extraordinary historic households. I promise you will stroll away inspired by the magic they have created.
