Thursday is "This Old House" Day

[click image to enlarge]

This 1876, Queen Anne home on Highland Ave., is painted in two colors, typical of the houses from that period. I really like the wrap around porch. If you click and enlarge the photo you will see the porch rail with cutouts that look like umbrellas.

It is a nice looking house. I have always wanted to own a house with turrets where you could climb up there and sit in a rocking chair, read and book, watch the traffic and sip on some coffee.

Is the top really painted or natural shingle color?
I would not have noticed the umbrellas if you had not mentioned it! great woodwork detail!
