Very different from glass house
Took a hike and a house tour today at Topsmead, a house built in the 20s, inspired by Cotswald cottages. This place is cozy in the extreme. As much as I liked the glass house, I think I'd have no problem moving in here in a minute.
Hard to see in this pic, but that yellow thing next to the chair is a dahlia the size of a dinner plate!
Normally I'm not a fan of oak woodwork because of what they did in the past with the light/honey oak, but here it was a lovely warm color and looked fabulous.
In addition to the warmth, the place provides lots of nooks and vignettes, inside and out...
With wonderful views out of every window.
The fact that it's set on over 500 acres at the top of a hill doesn't hurt...with a mix of meadows, orchards, pine forests, ponds, etc. Just wonderful.
