...and a style I could be very happy in!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Nice point of view, behind the trees. Excellent perspective.

@Wayra: Thank you, Wayra ... this was taken from the street, trees and all. ;D

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

A 'home' ? Round my way, this would house a whole neighborhood !

@Ronnie 2¢: In Florida things get spread out. Don't know if this had a second floor or is built to look like it does.

BiLL from Carrickfergus, United Kingdom

I agree, Judy :)

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

Living in grand style indeed Judy! What is the significance of the star? If you were in Maritime Canada, this would indicate that an Acadian lived in the house! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: New England, Virginia, or Texas would be my guess ... or may the Maritimes. ;D

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld(Old West Wales Boy), Germany

Nice building and a lovely scene but ifI was living there i´d rather a house made out of Stone or bricks.We seem to see a lot of News footage here of American towns and cities being destroyed by storms and the houses are usually all made of Wood..

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: There is no natural stone and not much brick available in Florida, so the cost would be prohibitively expensive to build with those materials. There ARE many cement block homes with stucco applied. Storms may leave the walls standing and just take off the roof. ;D

Don from Spokane, United States

A fine shot of this large country home. I really like the design with plenty of porch area.

@Don: I like it too, Don ... but at this stage of life we don't need that much room. ;D

RBL from Oxford, United States

So very charming; love the porch and dormers! Lovely home and capture!

@RBL: Thanks, Ruthie ... I love the porch too. The dormers may be just for design. I don't know if there is a second floor or not.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

You did country home and I did country roads today. ;-)

6 May 2014 12:48am

@B. Thomas: I love both of them. ;D

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

It looks nice..but...if you lived in such a one at present, WHO would do the cleaning?! There's the same story here with most houses made of wood and materials derived from wood. They are very expensive as they are, to build of brick or would turn into a "treasure house"!

6 May 2014 8:10am

@Japanalia: They may have a cleaning person come in; many do. While this appears to be a wood frame home, it may be made of concrete block and then have clapboard siding applied, which might be vinyl.

j'aime bien la croix sur la maison à droite

@L'angevine: La "croix" vous avez dit est une étoile, peut-être une marque de leur État d'origine.
