Ivy-covered

This lovely home in the lower Forest Hill neighborhood will all but disappear under all that ivy soon. It looks like it should be on a huge lot out in a rural area but it is right in the middle of the city with a neighbouring home on the other side of that fence.

That house is gorgeous. I also like that planter in the yard.

An amazing setting, and that fence is very decorative too!

It looks greatly appealing.

You always find these houses I could live in. Beautiful style, but I think ivy is really hard on buildings, and should probably be removed.

I get goose bumps just looking at places like these - I like them so much. It's gorgeous in every way. I'd love to see inside it! Looks like it backs up to a forest, also. Yummy!

Wow that Ivy really is taking over but it looks super cool. The fence was there but I must say the house really caught my eye the most.

This truly is a greenhouse.

Oh, that would never do! My old neighborhood (aka "watchdog") association would have been all over that.

That ivy is really pretty -- it reminds me of a university campus building -- at least the U in Oregon a lot of buildings look like that.

Janice Adcock said...

That fence is the perfect complement to the house!

Michelle said...

I love seeing all of that ivy growing on the house, but my husband would say to cut it down! It would ruin the structure!

Nice house! Ivy is supposed to weaken the structure, but I would leave it on this house.
