Whenever I drive to town, I go past this house. It is fairly close to the road, the driveway goes around back, and it appears to have acreage in the back. I had to stand on a side road and grab these shots because there was no way for me to get closer unless I trespassed.
This house is somewhat unique with its purple siding and blue doors. Those aren’t exactly standard New England house colors.
The door photo I was able to capture is the side door, but there is an identical door on the front of the house facing the road. Of course on the average New England home, that means this side door is the one that it is actually used.
I tried everything my computer was able to do to enlarge that wooden plaque to see what it says, but I couldn’t get anywhere. Year it was built? Name? Address? I don’t know.
A couple of years ago, they tore down a dilapidated barn and built the new two car garage. They planed and reused a lot of the old barn wood and even roofed it with the left over barn tin so that it doesn’t look new.
I’ve been driving by this house for about nine years now and smile thinking how confident the owners must be to choose these paint colors.
I like it. It’s different but, hey, in most cases normal is overrated. 🙂
