I'm guessing you ladies won't complain if I share a little eye candy, so let me present some of the awesome homes my cousin and I spied this weekend. We had a little time to kill, so we got lost in a part of a neighborhood I didn't know existed. It's a very old, historical area. I completely enjoyed imagining the families who built and lived in these houses. Let's take a look, shall we?
(You can click on each of the photos to enlarge them)
Every beautiful home is preceded by a beautiful entrance:Doesn't the stone work, the black awnings, and the little curved-rail patio make you weak at the knees?How about a dose of this amazing pillar-y goodness? Does it not make you just step back and "wow"? (The big pillar facades are on both sides!) I was about to post this when Z pointed out that this is the Wright Brothers' Mansion. For more info, go here.I couldn't get a good shot of the home that went with this charming Arch, but I had to share anyway:
I'm loving this driveway & the 3 car garage!
This charming wonder of architecture reminds me of something tucked away in the mountains.. almost made me forget I was in the midwest!For those of you who are fans of Stucco, search no more!I saw this home and immediately thought: Cottage on steroids! It just kept going and going. Please ignore my dash & wiper blade! :)Can't you just imagine an ornately dressed woman in an oversized straw hat walking out here sipping tea?
This is another place that just kept going and going.. I'm guessing the outbuilding to the left is an indoor pool?More stately columned patios.. love it!
This southwestern-style plantation home is big enough for like 4 families!And lastly, a beautiful brick masterpiece (please excuse the car window again):
Hope you enjoyed this little tour as much as I did!
