Our house was built in 1957 and is of no particular interest architecturally. We purchased this house for the lot and setting among the spectacular oaks. This is the rear of the house with a rather forlorn looking screened porch.
The prior owner live here for almost 30 years and most likely had some fun with a small home garden. There is also a family orchard of citrus, about a dozen trees in all.
Thing got a little out of control in the yard as the prior owner got more elderly. We are now on our 5th dumpster to clear the site of the ivy, weeds and some really scary looking bushes.
And what country home would be complete without a shed!!
This is the front drive and front porch area. Many of the windows were completely covered by bushes.
The Kitchen, in all its glory.
Master bedroom. YIKES! And yes, we now are using the fireplace in the corner.
This shot gives a sense of the scale of the trees. There are about a dozen Oaks scattered throughout the property. I see a tree swing in my future.
Here is another shot from the rear of the house early this spring. We had the house painted white and have cleaned up most of the lot at this point.
