This handsome house is on Prospect Avenue, the street 
dividing Hartford and West Hartford.

This building is beautiful, and Jack, the second photo is a dream:)
By the way, I forget to check but felt really weak after my visit - do you think it might be him, lol:):)

love the second floor balcony and the stonework. is this place old?

You have an eagle's eye Jack. That's a compliment of course.

Would that lovely old building be termed 'colonial style' Jack, not sure, but whatever, it looks very well protected by that fierce looking eagle, wonder what the bird on the weather vane thinks about that! 'Amazing' view through portal, just 'amazing' hahaha!! You know what I mean Jack!

A stately eagle. Love the framing in the second shot.

What a lovely house for the divide, Looks so nice and cool with those shade trees and balconies.

Sharon said...

What a beautiful place in a style that I would expect to see in the east of the US.

Great looking house and wonderful shots Jack!

Lynette said...

Cool photos, Jack. Love what you chose to accentuate in each one of them. Thanks!

A proud American is living here..What a great mansion!The weather vane seems interesting ..

This is what I would call a stately mansion. Like others above, I like the framing in the second photo. It would also work well if you framed a person's face in the middle of the circular hole, but that would require a companion to trespass on the other side of the wall.

What an elegant home. I love the two vantage points you chose! The covered porch must have been awfully nice to have recently.

So American Airlines wants you to come visit Bellingham! When can I expect you? ;-)

Excellent framing!

Mighty impressive! Is West Hartford as swanky as I imagine - sort of like this photo all over town?

Hugo M. said...

I love the composition of both pictures! :)

RedPat said...

Love that 2nd shot!

Dave and I had the same thought. When does a house become a mansion? I honestly don't know. Either way, "stately" seems like a pretty good adjective here.

Jacob said...

There is nothing like a stone house! Or should I say mansion. How do you find the time to keep it up?

And what's this about "you and me" and beauty! Sheesh!

I really hate it when you're right! :-)

Another gracious house - your area seems to be full of them. I too like the creative framing.

Sylvia K said...

What a beautiful house and I do love the second shot!! Very creative indeed! Hope you've had a great day, Jack!

Sequim Daily Photo said...

handsome indeed. I can't imagine living in a place that big, I'd feel lost. That second shot is very cool.

Kate said...

It seems incredible to me that these wonderful "stately mansions" are still privately owned. Agree with all the above comments about the framing of the house inside the portal.

VP said...

The eagle is great, the house magnificent and I like the brickwork of the round window!

JM said...

Both compositions are really good, Jack!
