I knew this was going to be a busy week, with meetings at work and outside of work chewing up a few of my normally quiet evenings. So, I’ve been saving these houses (and their doors) for today. When I last visited Concord, Massachusetts, I decided to walk from Monument Square in the center of town, out to The Old Manse. That’s also when I discovered the Robbins house.
On the way, I walked by some beautiful old houses. I don’t know how old and I don’t know who built them, so they are perfect for a week when I don’t have time to do any research.
This post, like those of a few dozen other bloggers, photographers and amateur historians, is an entry for Norm Frampton’s weekly celebration of all things on a hinge. If you have a door(s) photo that you want to share, or if you just want to see what has been shared by others today, head on up to Norm’s place. He has some beautiful doors waiting for you, and links to hundreds of other doors.
The house is hidden, but this view shows off those sun room doors.
We’ll see how this one flies. The last time I included a dark house with a yellow door, most people didn’t like it.
Not the best picture, but I wanted to include the gate.
This is my kind of house. It’s attached to the barn.
I think I know where I would be spending my retirement. Then again, I’d probably have to keep working to pay for this,
Not the best shot, but the best the bright sun would allow.
I love the front yard, filled with spring!
That’s a substantial house.
Aother large home.
This was all about the garages doors.
Fifield/Fay house – 1825
I did find a little bit about this house, from a real estate listing. The 2,831-square foot home features five bedrooms, two and one-half baths, and four fireplaces. Was on the market in 2014 for $1.350,000 US.
Fifield/Fay house from the side. It’s bigger than it looks from the front.
The other approach to the house that’s integrated with the barn.
This house goes on and on.
This is the house that I showed the sun room doors of earlier.
I like this house. I like the shed dormers on the sides of the gambrel dormer.
