I remember living in this style of house for 3 years when I was a teen... my father was Navy and we moved to a small town. But we didn't have that beautiful verandah like in your photo... a fabulous design, love this!!

Beautiful old house, well photographed. I don't think I adequately appreciated these old beauties when I was tooling around Riverside when I went to R-B High School.
