As a follow-up to my last post “Heritage Hill Carriage House“, I have attached a print of the house that sits in front of it. Notice down at the end of the side driveway….

      If you think about it…that era created many victorian mansions that really do look very similar and I love your analogy of a dog on a leash for the carriage house….I was happy to see these particular homes restored to their former glory…growing up in Iowa, so many were left to rot or torn down.. Thanks for stopping by!!

      Thank you very much Lori…love the architecture and really love the fact that Grand Rapids refurbished this home back to its original glory and have it as a museum.

    This is an amazing house Kirt. I’ve never seen a dormer on a turret roof. I’m trying to imagine how difficult that would be to build. The house is beautiful and the composition of the photo is perfect.

    What a lovely estate. I like how it turned out in the print. Thanks for pointing out the carriage house too. It was fun to think back to the other post. Have a wonder-filled weekend. Hugs!

      No, I don’t know….it is a museum owned by the city and you can tour it, but we were there over the Christmas Holidays and didn’t get a chance to do that . Thanks for stopping by!!

    Kirt, you have featured a gorgeous art print of a historical home and I remember being “blown away” by the interesting beauty displayed in the carriage house print. Thank you for letting us see both and their placement on the property. 🙂

    Ok, so I work in a home office and if I burst out laughing, it’s usually just the cats that give me that “look” of where the heck did that come from. Today, my wife is off and got the joy of hearing me burst out in laughter breaking the silence of the house……same look….I can honestly say I had never looked at this house that way, but having said that … with your comment I can so see it…lol….

    Wish I had that picture these past two decades while I was a home inspector. It’s a great example of the cardinal rule that chimneys should terminate 10 feet higher than anything within 10 feet horizontally of it so that it will draft properly to get the smoke and particles out of the house.

      That aspect caught my eye when I saw the chimney and then my mind goes to earthquake codes having lived in Dan Diego for so many years….thanks for stopping by!!
