As the original little beach cottages (like mine) are being torn down, they are being replaced by three story homes with lovely views.
The third floor in newer homes always makes a smaller footprint than the first and second floors - you can see that Leslie's third floor is above the kitchen, but not above the living area.
Leslie says this is the area she spends most of her time and I can see why.
I would hang out in the little sitting area off to the side of the bedroom on that comfy sofa.
I am in love with the green fabric on this beautiful chair.
The headboard is gorgeous and you see the rolled up comforter at the foot of the bed.
Another Pottery Barn Kids area rug can be seen peeking out beneath the bed.
In my last post about the second floor of the house, I ended with a photo of a window seat
which surprisingly is in the bathroom.
I think the bathroom is larger than my entire house!
Oh, to have this much storage space in my bathroom.
And what a beautiful color scheme Leslie has chosen.
I didn't get a full picture of the third floor laundry room, but you can see it through the door - how wonderful to not have to carry all those linens or your clothes all the way down to the first floor.
And speaking of the first floor, it's time we went back downstairs to check out the garden.
Because this house was built on two lots, there is space for a "real" yard.
And there is plenty of room for a playhouse for the grandchildren.
I am in love and envy of this cute little cottage.
The triplets have it decorated as a house, but if it was mine, I would be out there creating all of the time.
A beach house requires an outdoor shower to clean off all of those sandy feet after a day on the beach.
Beachy decor can be spotted throughout the yard.
I hope you enjoyed the tour through Leslie's home
I leave you with a sneak peek at the house, studio and garden I photographed yesterday.
and the spectacular view from the third story of the treehouse.
