It's still a lovely house.

P.S. Too many pots out front! Proportion, people, proportion.

Am I crazy, or was this a view of Frederick Platt's terrace just a few minutes ago?

And ditto the pots

The Pratt photo was mislabeled. Will reappear soon.

Oh how I loathe ivy vines growing on houses....

Home looks great and there is nice coloring imparted by the homes materials. Potted topiary does make the building look like a garden center, but that is easily changeable.

LOL archibuff -- a few multi-colored triangle flag streamers & it would look like a garden center having a deep discount sale!

I also like this house even with the ivy ... although I like the earlier, more mission-style version better.
