The house is gorgeous, naturally, or we'd not see it on AT!

And for Abby, some positive comments (I'm fortunate enough to be have a 9-5 job as an editor)

Easy things to fix and you'll immediately see an improvement in your writing.
Your prose is too long. Sentence length should be 20 words or less. Read it aloud - if you have to take a pause, it's too long.
Then, vary the sentence length. Shorter, then longer...
Aim for more vivid language - a variety of sensory language and specific nouns

My oft repeated advice to my authors:
No author dislikes to be edited as much as he dislikes not to be published. ~Russell Lynes

and....
All prise goes to the person who has the courage to write the first draft. Correcting something is always much easier than creating the original!

Keep at it, you're heading in the right direction!
