this old house thursday: perhaps my favorite house in brattleboro

doesn't this place look as if some behemoth of a creature carried it across the ocean from england and dropped it here in vermont?

i'm on the road again for a few days but i've scheduled posts to appear during my absence.

It may be old, but it is also very large. A picture of elegance, I think.

What a beautiful house... just as the picture.
Have a good journey, Brattcat!

This does indeed look like an English manor house, which makes sense, since Vermont is located in New England.

Kind of a semi-tudor look.

Not surprised it's your favourite house. It caught my eye in the portal and is absolutely fabulous. A lovely shot of it too.

I LOVE that house - bricks, character, history, unique design! Maybe it came over on a really big barge?! Congrats on using the auto-publish while you're gone; we wouldn't want to miss your snaps!

An English mansion. I didn't realize this was where you lived! No wonder it's your favorite house.

Are you having fun yet?

The house really does look as though it came from another place and time.

Nice find!! I see why it's a favorite.

Oooh. Gorgeous house! I can see why it's your favorite. I'm a sucker for brick, too-- we don't have all that many brick buildings out here in the wild west! So naturally I find them very charming.

Oooooh, it does look like that. It looks like it a home right out of a Regency Romance. It's so beautiful, I can see why it is your favourite.

We have so many homes in Birmingham in this architecture. Maybe I should start featuring homes here. You've made me think.
