A tour of the Neighborhood

I managed to take a few photos of the neighborhood on our dog walk yesterday.  Mine is a neighborhood in transition but in the best sense of the word.

Nice, well-kept older home.

And the Townhouse complex across the street. 

Here we have a nice Townhouse, a duplex and two long, skinny townhouses on a single lot. You can see that there must be deed restrictions in place that keep the front of the house line levels but some of these beauties, like the one below, are built right up to the lot line on the sides and back. 

 I call this one the Castle.  It continues with the same front house line.  I can't decide whether this is one lot or two.  Behind the fence is a smallish swimming pool.  They were swimming last weekend.  So tells you what the weather has been down here. You can see what appears to be two stories over the garage and continues and continues and see below..

Just past the garage, the building goes to full three-story from ground to roof, all the way into the back and side. It doesn't look as massive in this picture as it does in person.  There is a metal gate just on the other side of the brick wall and you can see into the compound with views of the pool and the living room which has a totally glass front wall.  I guess I should get to know them. 

Yes, I am the poor country mouse of the neighborhood but I am content to walk the neighborhood and share the beauty of the young and the old houses. 

I'll get some more pictures of the duplexes, fourplexes, and duplexes with garage apartments in back, all comingled with beautiful new homes, to share.


  1. I like to look at houses when I am walking in town. Looks like your neighborhood is blooming.

  2. I know today everyone loves a McMansion neighborhood, but I prefer this. I like that it is pretty and all the homes are different and you have big, small, townhomes, etc. It's perfect Barbara! I want to be your neighbor.

  3. Nice looking neighborhood. I just need an acre or two between mine.
