Along the Crest

Okay, back to my walk. There are many huge homes on this crest or cliff, but most of them are behind high walls, or hedges. This is another of the old ones that you can actually see through the gates.
When I say along the crest...or cliff. I mean just that. There is a drop off behind these homes...down to the Trinity River, and the views are amazing. You can probably see for at least fifty miles.

There is a history plaque on this home too. It is actually my dream home. Old, stately, a portico and spacious porches...or verandas....if they would just open the gate and let me in!


  1. the home is very beautiful, but my eye went right to that grand tree! :)

  2. Dearest Janey,
    Yes, if they only would let us sit on the veranda, enjoy the cliff and its spectacular views and look at those huge, age old trees. IF they only could tell their stories!
    Hugs and happy weekend.

  3. I'd get lost in a home of that size.

  4. It looks huge - since we do our own cleaning, I'll have to say "no thanks!" Pretty though...

  5. I love it when you go walk-about Janey! What a place!! I've been missing lately in blogland (again!) and have a lot of posts to catch up on. Good to see you and catch up on your happenings. :)

  6. Just ring the bell, maybe they open the door for you?

  7. Wow....I'm wishing now that it'd be on the market...for sale...but of course I would not be able to afford the asking price....but, I can dream!!!
