Reminds Me Of Something

I have never been to Boston, but these houses in the Annex neighbourhood always remind me of Boston. They are a rarity in the area being Georgian Revival rather than the more typical Annex style with turrets, balconies etc. The 2 pairs of semi-detached homes were built in 1902 and although they are not designated, the owners have not messed with the facades and they are extremely well-maintained. I love the elegant simplicity of them!

I really like the ones on the right with the arch rooftops over those windows. Both are pretty though, it would be nice to live there

Real feel of Americas East coast, bless the people that have kept them looking as fabulously as they do

The look large and comfortable and I think your word, "elegant," captures their essence perfectly.

I almost thought they were new houses made to look old. They are very well kept.

Kind regards :)*

They are pretty nice. Boston houses don't as often have the green strips of front lawn. To me, it looks like Georgetown, a lovely neighborhood in Washington, D.C.

Never been to Boston but if it's like this it must be pretty.

I agree with you. They are beautiful, and some time ago I am sure CDP had a blogger from BOSTON.
