Stairway To ....

I always admire this house in the Annex since it seems to be so well taken care of especially in summer with lots of greenery around it, but winter gives me a chance to show the wonderful winding staircase leading to the 2nd floor. In the summer the railings are covered in vines so it is hard to make out the stairs. It looks as if the house was originally a semi-detached but now the upper floors of the 2 halves have been joined to form one large upper unit with its own sweeping stairs. I like it!

I like the coversion but I wonder what it's like getting up that staircase if it's covered in ice!

A very nice looking place to sit and enjoy the view, once you have climbed the stairs!

Very unique. I've not seen this before. It looks like a lovely home. I like that poor bike out freezing in the front yard!

What a good arrangement..I wonder if the side steps will be taken away now that it's all one home? It's a gret looking house Pat.

An unusual addition to the front of a house, these are usually hidden away around the side or back.

I like it too! Great idea for splitting the house!

It is appealing and looks great in this light. It would take me a while to get used to the stairwell.

I like this. You still have quite a bit of snow I see.

Turning the upstairs into one unit is a very interesting concept.
