what dreams are made of....
It may be a little difficult to see the details of this amazing property, but I couldn't get any closer than this. I zoomed in as much as my little pink camera could. I have oogled over this place for as long as I can remember. It was for sale about 4 years ago for 1 million dollars. Unfortunately, we didn't have the cash to rush over there and put our bid in. But, every time we play the lottery, we know this would be our first stop! Amazingly, this property sits in a somewhat city location.....looks like it's in the countryside, but it's really not. You see this view from a pretty busy street actually. In nearly 40 years, I have never seen a person anywhere on this land!! The lanes look somewhat traveled, but never a car or truck or even someone mowing. Not sure if you can see them, but there are 5 deer grazing on the hill.
When I sit at the crossroads where this perfect view can be had, I look up to that house sitting on the hill and see a french country manor. It appears to have a stone front with topiary like bushes framing the front door. I have often dreamed of what the inside must be like!
And then, THERE'S THIS BARN.....
The barn is huge! It appears to be in very good condition. Window after window after window. Oh the possibilities!
Here is another view from the stop sign I was sitting at.....yes, I was out of the car, standing in the middle of the street with my hazards on, dog barking out the window. I bet I'm not the first! Anyways, isn't it just beautiful?
