Looks like the tree in front lost a branch in a storm and it landed on the fence below. How great is that fence?
This home is for sale right now, which has me dreaming of garden parties on the lawn and nights on the porches and a warm, cozy fireplace on these crisp autumn nights. I love the stone chimney reaching high into the sky. It was difficult to photograph (lest I traipse across their lawn), but if you peek between the trees in these photos you can catch a glimpse of it.
I took a peek at the real estate listing and learned that this home was built in 1853. It is 4,099 sq.ft. and has 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. This impressive lot is 2.67 acres. The front lawn stretches on forever and is surrounded by this gorgeous black, wrought-iron fence. How amazing are the original stone gate posts out front? The rear of the property has a gently sloping back yard which leads down into the inviting woods below.
Here you can get a better look at the old chimney in this MLS photo I found online. To. Die. For.
This next photo is the entrance to the driveway. They had me at "Hello. Drive on in." OK, dont' mind if I do. I did actually drive just beyond these stone posts to snap a couple of photos. Hey, they won't mind, right? Their home is on the market after all.
Hope you enjoyed this week's Driveby!
Tell me about your neighborhood. Do you have any particular homes that have caught your attention? Do you pass any old homes and imagine a bygone era? Or am I the only crazy lady on the roads, holding up traffic, rubbernecking at my dream homes?
