These houses are on Oxford Street in the West End of Hartford, late in November.


These are on Girard Avenue.

Love the elegance of Hartford's neighborhoods. Thanks for stopping by. (And I'm looking forward to seeing your hydrangeas next year!)

A lovely street. I really like the big, old homes, just glad I don't have to heat them!

There is some serious square footage in these houses. I hope they are well insulated for winter.

Both streets are lovely. The bottom shot is my favourite.

Nita Davis said...

Lovely old homes. I really like the way the lighting and fall colors in that second shot really enhance the peacefulness of the street.

Such beautiful houses and streets. the sloping yards in the second photo remind me of some of the homes in the town I grew up in, Quincy Illinois.

Reminds me of that Mellencamp song... in the West End. I like it.

I would really like a place like this...

Such lovely neighborhoods they are indeed, Jack!! They look very peaceful and a great place to call home!! I particularly like the last one!

Beautiful street.What I like is that the homes fit the landscape (ie old and original) as opposed to some of the new fab "McMansions" I've seen go up over here.

Nice neighborhood, Jack. The bottom picture is my preferred.

RedPat said...

There certainly are a lot of wood-sided homes down there!

Lowell said...

These houses are so small! :-))

But still very beautiful.

One of my favourite 'likes' is looking at houses. These are so lovely and so many porches!

Luis Gomez said...

Sweet! Great looking neighborhood.

How very posh. And a posh street name too.

Such an elegant town. The houses are so tastefully fancy, with their gables, pillars and porches.

Michelle said...

Quite a stately neighborhood.

At least in the older parts of St. Louis, it's common for the entrance to be several steps higher than the sidewalk, just like here. I sometimes wonder why that was done, and how.
