Looking Upward


This elegant stone house is in the Middle Haddam historic district of East Hampton, Connecticut.


The Hotchkiss-Fyler House is on the National Register of Historic Places.
It is a property of the Torrington Historical Society.


And, the owners of this lovely Victorian house must be boosters for
the North End of Middletown, Connecticut.

Classy homes.

I do love these older homes as they have so much more charm than newer ones.

Three massive and beautiful houses; the angle takes them away from the "ordinary" and makes the viewer pay attention!

José Mendonça said...

Great trio. My favourite is the one on top, love those stone walls.

Birdman said...

Fabulous stonework.

Karl Demetz said...

The stone house is my preferred to watch, to live I select the third...

Sharon Anck said...

My favorite is the top one. I love that solid stonework. It looks like it's been there for a very long time and will stay there for many more years.

VP said...

Great and beautiful houses, the middle one is quite funny...

Sylvia K said...

Such beautiful homes, Jack!! Thanks, as always, for sharing the beauty! Now if someone said to me, "move in tomorrow" I'd choose the 3rd one, but the first one is fantastic and I do love the stonework! Now isn't it great that I don't have to make a choice!!!!

Anita Davis said...

They are all three fantastic, although the second one is my favorite. I do love the perspective in the first shot.

William Kendall said...

Beautiful houses, Jack. The first one reminds me a bit of the farmhouse owned by my cousin.

Yes I'm with Jose, the stone walls in the first shot are wonderful.. I'm wondering how you got this angle in the last shot Jack, there's not much of a slope and you are tall :)

The second one is somewhat gothic!
My favorite is n°3.

Are you sure you didn't take the first photo in the Cotswolds?

RedPat said...

I like them all but especially the 2nd one - it has so much character and quirkiness to it!

All three beautiful in their own way. Though I dislike 'thermometers'. Work is full of them!

Lois said...

The middle one is my favorite! I can't resist a turret.

Tanya Breese said...

Randy said...

Dianne said...

Halcyon said...

They are all lovely! I'm glad to see they're so well-cared for as well.

Amazing how much variation and extravagance the human mind can conjure up when faced with the simple need for shelter!
