stalking the house

For YEARS I've been stalking this house. It's my favorite.
It even comes with vines, crawling up the brick walls! It's located on a quiet, country road convenient to NOTHING.
And just LOOK at that barn!
It even went up for sale once, and I dragged my family along to walk through it.
It was amazing.

This is the sprawling front lawn.

This is the view from the front yard, looking across the street.

And again.
And here's the street on which it is located.

This is where I live in my dreams.
But I'm happy where I am.

I love old houses and ESPECIALLY old barns. I have no idea why, I have never lived in either one. They just ooze character and charm and you known they have stories to tell and a history etched into the walls. Someday I will have one and run it as a bed and breakfast.

may I move in with you?
That home is beautiful, the view the pond...dreamy!

Oh I could move there in a heartbeat! I love that house. New England homes have such charm. I love old houses, especially brick ones.
Thanks for sharing the pictures they are great!!

I would love to see pictures of your current house. How about a picture tour. pretty please, just for me?!

I, too, love these old New England homes, Tom. If we ever get one, you can come and run the B&B. And YES, LL, you can come decorate and pick your very own room! Jane, you are welcome too--just don't know about the current house tour... not so charming and not so showy.

This house is in Ashburnham, Jane's old stomping grounds. I go out of my way to drive past this house OFTEN. Love it.
