Well…..I got up real early to take my walk while it was still cool. Camera in hand, Woody and I set out to snap up photos of homes in my mid century neighborhood. I just got around the corner and ran into this:
This little guy was loose (no tags) and followed me closely the entire walk. I did manage to get some pretty good shots though. I apologize up front about the waste cans and yard waste in some photos. It was pick-up day and the trucks had not come around yet 🙂
My subdivision is steeped in history, even though it was developed mid-century. It sits smack dab in the middle of the former farm of a prominent local family. Because part of the farm was a nursery, many of the big old trees are still standing.
I believe this fence is a remnant of the old farmstead; it sits in front of a brick ranch 🙂 Note the little fella is still walking with me:
This home is just around the corner. I love the built in planter and the sloping post holding up the porch roof.
This home is a very cool jade/aqua color with shake siding:
This one has a more modern vibe with the nearly flat roof on one side and a slanted roof on the other:
My neighbors home gets the biggest chimney award:
This is the front of their lovely home:
Another nearly flat roof and crank out windows.
This one has a carport:
I love this wooden screen/divider on the porch:
This beauty if for sale:
I just like this one; plain and simple.
Here is ours. See the cupola on the garage roof. Another nod to Colonial.
One of my favorites; love all the windows/glass.
But THIS ONE came up for sale shortly after closing on our house. We went to the estate sale here (twice) and then to 2 Realtor open houses. If it had been for sale before we would have jumped on this one. It had an original kitchen and baths, a screened in breezeway, full basement with additional fireplace and groovy bar, a brick planter INSIDE, 4 bedrooms, and was just plain cool . It sold for less than we paid for ours 😦
I could have taken dozens and dozens of more photos; none of these homes are alike. I just love all the different styles of mid-century represented here!
