A real beauty

Roger has been wanting to go back up to Willow Slough Wildlife area so, since I ended up not having Lorelei today, we headed that way. We decided to do part of the route on not so well traveled roads, and this house was the first thing I wanted to photograph. Another history I wish I knew. I can't help but wonder if it was something more than a home at one time. And I wonder has it always been brick. And that window in the peak--I have not seen anything like it before. I wonder it is is original to the house, or added later.

Beautiful home, Rose... I'll bet it is the original.

Glad you all had a day to get out and check out the sights...

Hugs,
Betsy

Wonderful looking house. It would be nice to know the history of it. The windows almost make it church-like. I like it. MB

From some of the old houses I've seen, I too, would think it is the original. It's beautiful! I love that window.

Not only that window, but the top of the middle window too - that doesn't look original to me - it looks gothic, but in mid-America? That's odd!

That's a humdinger! hehehehe

The house certainly is of a distinctive design. I like the shape of the windows including the unusual one in the peak of the roof. What a fine looking home!

It does have a lind of clerical look to it around the windows...

Wonderful photos full of interest and mystery!

You've certainly got more questions than answers here!

This is certainly a very handsome house. I'm glad you captured it. I agree that the window in the peek is very unusual.

Looks original to me. Many builders back then used creative detailing. I like it!

Very pretty house! Love the window arch and the trim.
