I am so lucky to have this house just around the corner from me, literally. One day not too long ago my husband was off on an errand. He called me and told me to meet him outside and that he had a surprise for me. I was smack dab in the middle of making a mess while trying to clean up a mess, and was more than a little irritated. But I did as he said.
He then proceeded to drive me around the block. I had been eyeballing the goings on at this house ever since it had been sold but had no idea that renovations had been completed or that an open house was now taking place. I was no longer irritated.
Most of these photos were actually taken way back in May 2011. I started to post them but never finished. It has since come to my attention that the house may have once again changed hands and that a new website showcasing this beautiful home has been established. Click HERE to visit.
Also! If you happen to be in the area tomorrow, an open house will take place on Sat beginning at 11 a.m. If you have ever driving by this stunning place and daydreamed about it (like I did) now is your chance to to take a peek.
Following are some photos I took of the garden back in 2008. These were taken at a time when the home and gardens were being lovingly cared for by the preivous owner.
Beautiful (massive!) antique garden urn.
I've been lucky to get to know this house close up over the years. It holds a very special place in my heart, as does the previous owners who loved this house dearly. I have more pictures taken over the last few years and will try to post them in the coming days. My fingers are crossed that this wonderful place winds up in caring and deserving (loving and respectful of old homes please) hands.
