Arch You Inspired...

11 April 2011

This house is in the town where my parents liven.  I think it is enchanting.  Especially the look of the doors ( do you see the arched screen door, on the little patio, just waiting to let a cool breeze into your living room?).  The sad part?  It is on a totally busy road.

Do old houses like this talk to you, sing to you?  Or do you run from them screaming!!?

I love old houses.. I totally see the draw, and I love the quirks.  I love the quality of materials and the layers of funny past designs, or quick fixes that have been there for 70 years.  I would like another old house someday.  Probably not with young kids...  who knows!

So, this house may need some love, but isn't it charming?!

Oh, it is a charming little house! I feel like you, there are some little houses that I'm just drawn to and would love to be rich enough to buy and fix them up. You can just tell they want to be loved.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love old houses, especially ones that look like that one. Maybe one day when the kids are grown, we will be able to have a smaller, home with charm.

what a lovely house!!!!

sure - there are some wonderful things to owning an old home --the woodwork that no new builder could ever replicate. the craftsmanship. i love my built-ins and my leaded glass. but oh man. the expenses. the lack of insulation. the cracks. the electrical surprises. but we've owned a new home and you know what? its no worse. the only difference is that we don't have the 'flow'. its more boxy inside and we feel we need to stay true to its arts & crafts style.

oh I LOVE this house how CUTE!!!!
The only drawback for me about older homes is the lack of closet space but I just adore them.

Love it! I am intrigued by old houses as well, especially ones with arched doorways. Our house was built in 1939, and it definitely has charm. The sad thing is that it was built in 1939, which means that after 72 years, we're feeling the effects of its age on our wallets!

Love old houses! Unfortunately I can only afford new-ish. Here in Houston all the houses with character are in sought after neighborhoods ($$$) or not so safe ones.

I grew up in an old houses (200+ years for the original sections). And Karri is right, they are money pits!

I LOVE this style house! I actually love all the houses over by University down near the school (I'm not saying more specifics because idk how candid you are about where you live, but I'm sure you know where I'm talking about). Anyway, I LOVE the little swoopy roof architecture! And the chunky porch columns (this one doesn't have them, but I've seen a lot that do).

*sigh* I love old houses!

I adore old homes. I live in one! And because I live in one, I believe I can enjoy old homes without actually LIVING in them :) We are moving, and one of things I am yenning for is to have a home that isn't over 100 years old!! :)

I love old houses too! Unfortunately where I live the majority of old homes are either too run down to be appreciated, or they're getting torn down to make room for new builds. So sad :-(

I totally know this house! I believe it was for sale a few years ago...and I was soooo loving it...but the busy road things makes it totally unliveable for young families!

The arched doors and windows totally rock! Love it!

Having an "old soul" I have always been drawn to these houses that carry so much history and personality. Currently live in a 130 yr. old farmhouse....

I've always been drawn to this particular house style- does it have a name? I've seen the same with a rock exterior and always wanted to see the inside.

Oh my word, this is bizarre! I lived RIGHT by this house last year! I always saw it and wanted it. I would not have ran from it :)
