Southern farmhouse in Texas has two-story porches

Located in Columbus, Texas, this country home is a paradise for anyone who loves to spend their afternoons relaxing on their porch and enjoying the breeze. Built in 1900, this farmhouse captures a wholesome, slower style of living that allows one to take the time to really savor and enjoy all that country life has to offer. 
And this house certainly has a lot to offer. With two different porches on its first floor and another porch on its second floor, this home provides ample opportunity to look out at the gorgeous countryside and enjoy the view of its lovely gardens and lawns. 
Shade-providing trees frame this lovely country home and its manicured landscape. 
With its intricate woodwork and a sizable amount of space, this porch was positively made for rocking chairs, iced tea, and lazy afternoons spent with good friends. 
The spacious living room in this turn-of-the-century farmhouse is ideal for entertaining and relaxing. The fireplace takes center stage with its ornate and detailed woodwork, and the chandelier lighting adds just a touch of old-fashioned polish to this room. 
A second chandelier adorns the eat-in kitchen, which also features abundant storage space in its warm hardwood cabinets. A brick fireplace stands in the center of the room, hearkening back to the home's long history. Can't you just imagine an antique dining room table with a vase full of fresh-picked flowers from the garden?
Absolutely gorgeous woodwork on the banister makes the staircase to the second floor the centerpiece of this country home. The warm, dark hardwood juxtaposes beautifully with the crisp white interior of the farmhouse, creating a classic and clean effect. 
Another fireplace can be found in one of the home's master suites, which can be accented beautifully by antique touches such as historic family portraits and heirloom pieces of furniture. Spacious and full of light, this bedroom provides an adjoining master bath as well as several views of the idyllic surrounding property. 
The second-floor master bath features a clean white interior with all of the updated modern luxuries that allow for the ease of daily living. White shutters on the windows provide privacy while also adding a sweet country touch. 
Another one of the four total bedrooms in this farmhouse is this room, perfect for a little girl, which features the same high ceilings featured throughout the home. Tall windows allow for an abundance of natural light, and two feature a view out onto the second-story porch. 
The third porch is decorated with rustic wicker furniture and an eclectic array of picture frames and flower arrangements. A couch provides the ultimate comfort, and the natural beauty of the property does all the rest.
