A House of High Regard

I like the looks of this house a lot. I like the wide front porch which throws a welcoming arm out over the drive in a carport. I like the suggestion of a tower. I like the detailing, which doesn’t get carried away into total famboyance. I like the screened gazebo connected to the house by a short screened porch; where else would you sleep in the summer? (This gazebo is not visible on the real estate listing, and you can only just glimpse it from the street.) I even like the color pretty well; it’s not perfect, but in a way it’s better for it, since a house painted just the perfect color is a haughty, intimidating thing.

I don’t like it’s situation. It’s in a known flood plain and in town. I’d like it better up on a hill in some woods.
