OT/Does your house have a name?
I am wondering if anyone else names their property? My grandfather's family had a summer cottage on the Conewago Creek. They lived in town but in the dog days of summer they escaped the heat and went to their cottage named Woodside. Eventually my grandfather bought a cottage a few properties away and he and my grandma, mom, and aunts spent a lot of time there. When Grandpa retired they sold their home and moved full time to their cottage.
We didn't name our first home because nothing really was descriptive of it and we only spent a few years there.
Our next home was just referred to by the street name.
We built our next home and that is the home that my children think of as their family home. It was in a private, wooded neighborhood. Our home sat down in a hollow and during the warm months we saw toads every day. I named that house Toad Hollow.. My DH died there,
Several years later I remarried and we moved into my DH's home. We again lived in a wooded area and we were plagued with mice. That house was dubbed Mouse House.
Less than a year later we sold that home and bought the home we live in full time now. We again live in a wooded area with a lot of wild life. It isn't unusual to see deer in our yard. We have had baby foxes, and for several years a wild turkey hen named Charlotte who made our deck her favorite hangout. We have so many rabbits here that often when I drive back our drive I say "run bunny run" because there is usually at least one bunny that scoots away as I drive to the house. This house is named Bunny Run.
Did you name your property and if you did why did you give it that particular name?
