Walkabout Wednesday

IMG_1250

This week’s Walkabout has been brought to you by an estate sale that took place at the end of our street, in this house.



I have always liked this house, not just for its curb appeal (ha!), but also for the enormous, gorgeous lot it sits on.

It’s got lots of nooks and crannies, as well as a great outbuilding with a large garage and a workshop.

As a bonus, it comes with neighbors! 

Here’s the “I really don’t want any visitors, so I have all these steps” neighbor:

Here’s the “I have the prettiest house in the city and I know it” neighbor:

And here’s the “I totally stole this look from an episode of Miami Vice” neighbor.

It’s a lovely day in the neighborhood.

Definite " Curb (and Kirb) Appeal". I love the size of the lots, but I can't keep my tiny garden and cottage clean and manicured. I would never be able to keep up a house/yard of that size.

Wow. That first house is amazing. Estate sale...is the house for sale too? What a gorgeous hood.

Gorgeous homes.

There is something so beautiful about established neighborhoods - lucky you to be one of the neighbors! Your "labels" cracked me up but sure appeared to be spot on!

I'd walkabout in that neighborhood too! Did you go to the estate sale? Did you get anything?

Gorgeous houses/neighborhood! I live in probably one of the uglier areas in florida, and our house sort of resembles the last one... ugh. But, we currently have the prettiest house/land in our neighborhood, so I can't complain. I miss the northern neighborhoods though.
