Beautiful old home


This is over in Illinois...I think in Edgar Country.  It is a beauty.

It really is beautiful! And rose, I know the song. In my 50 + years of being in radio, I spent a fair amount of time in Country. Can't say it's my favorite, but my last great achievement was creating the Country station that took over the SW corner of Washington State. (I am grateful to be retired-- pretty much Classical music now) :)

It's a lovely building but the lack of any plants, bushes or clutter around it makes it look rather odd to me - as though it has just been lowered down from an alien craft!

Always nice to see when an old home is well cared for!! That front porch looks like a relaxing place to be on a warm sunny day.

It is a beauty! I love the metal red roof and wonder if you can hear the rain drops...a lullaby for those afternoon naps. Enjoy your day!

Yes, it's very pretty and has two doors to the porch! I wonder if two families live in the same house or maybe an in law apartment.💖

It looks like a fairytale house. I hope it had a white picket fence.

That is gorgeous. I would live there just so I could sit on that porch.
