I love these old houses.... they have so many rooms. My Dad was a navy man and at one time he was transferred to this small town, we ended up living in a house similar to this one.... it was huge! There were rooms we didn't even use. This is such a pretty setting.... it seems well kept. Great clarity, colour and details Steven, took me down memory lane. Excellent!
