that is a pretty (excuse me when i say this) "ballin" house lol i love the walk way up to it.. almost as if the house always staring down at you, judging, or waiting.. its eerie
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!

The way you said that Adrian..about it looking down at you as you stare up at it while walking, reminds me of Salem's Lot. That is exactly the way King put it.

Thanks Andy. :)
I love them too for just that reason. The energy of all the people who have lived here before.
The creaky stairs and hallways. Especially when it is windy!
These old houses just have that lived-in feeling. I would rather have old than new any day.
Although some of the new ones are nice.

I wish he landlord would sell! *Sniff!* Not that I could really afford it right now. :(

Nice house Belladonna!!! It fits you.


Old and rickety, on it's last foot.... OUCH! (psychic slap!)


It really does look nice, way better than the dump I live in.

I may be rickety and on my last foot, but not old yet!

Thanks :) I really do love it.

Spooky, that would be an awesome house to replicate! Let me know if you ever do -- I'll be at your Halloween party, invitation or not! :alien:

Here's the link to my old house in Ohio:

The tree on the left hides the turret roof, which would make the house appear even more impressive if you could see it. It also hides the stained glass window in the front of the house, in the center, right under where the roof peaks.

Sue, that is a great house!! It's huge!
If I ever get the money, I would love to buy a turn of the century farm house.
I used to live in the country and I miss it all the time.
