Stately Homes

Pictures of newer houses in the area.

A few of these homes look like the 19th century plantation homes.

Like a country estate, this house evokes a feeling of the old homeplace, even though it is a new house.

...and some of these houses are similar to the style of the California homes of the 1950's.

Just blink and this optical thing will straighten out.

A street in a neighborhood.

A pretty-ish park.

I think homes made of brick or stucco are easier to have to paint siding. I think it makes them look ageless also. Very pretty homes and I really like the stone street. Kelly

Thank you so much for posting these pictures. I love to look at houses. My husband got to go on a business trip to Australia in 1987 but it looks like we will never make down there together. I appreciate the glimpses you are giving us into what it looks like.

I'm a resident of a southern Adelaide beachside suburb in South Australia and have reading with interest your posts on your visit to Victoria. I find it very interesting to read your comments regarding houses, gardens and fences that I think we take for granted. What is just a regular house to me has taken your breath away by its country cuteness!

It's nice to hear the different way you see things, and I'd probably make similar comments about your home area and things you don't seem to notice anymore!

It's been lovely to read!
