Back Garden Entrance

I've been roaming through the Forest Hill neighborhood a lot and there are many older estate homes with large grounds. This one has a wall around its back garden and a beautiful gate leading into a large space which even has that fairly substantial greenhouse you can see. Interestingly the front of the house has no fence at all.

It looks majestic. The wrought iron gate is quite beautiful with the stone work.

It's a beautiful wall and fence and those owners must be some serious gardeners.

With that gate and fence, no one can sneak up from behind. Most impressive.

I am thinking places like this were built long before the urban sprawl caught up to them.

Quite a formidable entrance.

So gorgeous. Sigh. I suppose if Trump should, by some horrendous stroke of fate, get elected, this might be too expensive for me to move into? Darn!

Looks like quite the fancy abode!

That's quite a nice gate leading into the back yard. I bet the grounds inside are well kept as well.

Wow, now that's what I call a lovely place to live!

That's a pretty gate and interesting though that they didn't put one up in the front.
