Thursday is "This Old House" Day

This gambrel style cape on Dixwell Streeet, is shown here in all it's spring glory. This is an unusual style house for the Hospital Hill section of Quincy. I like the natural stained shingles and the 12 over 12 windows; though I wouldn't want to clean them. The pole lantern with the onion dome light is a nice touch along with the brick walkway leading to the front door . . . very New England.

Very interesting place to call HOME. I can't complain if I am the dweller. Lovely from the outside, what's more in the inside?

That bright red on the shutters and doors is an interesting choice.

Looks like a Ginger Bread house. Pretty.
