Neighbours

I like seeing how neighbours have such different styles of decoration for houses that are structurally quite similar. These two in the Summerhill neighbourhood give a good example of different tastes. I can't really decide which I like best.

They look great. This is one the main reasons I never bought attached houses.

...making a choice is easy for me, why would you want to paint the brick?

Hello,

They are both great looking homes! Have a happy day!

Sharon said...

I'm not sure which I like best either but I do think they complement each other.

Lea said...

They are both very appealing, but I like the brownish one better than the other one.
Have a blessed day!

They both look rather more grand than my little house. On one of the roads leading into Cambridge there is a row of small houses built in the inter-war years; when I was young they were almost identical but they've now evolved into a line of very different dwellings as each householder has expanded and beautified their properties.

Beautiful house. They look completely different than we do here.

Michelle said...

I like the one on the right. I wouldn't paint the brick.

They both look great but I prefer the one on the right.

Grey is very trendy inside and out right now but I prefer the natural brick.

Very much like West Philadelphia where I lived my early Bohemian life

William Kendall said...

They stand out well together.

Revrunner said...

Hmm, I like the entrance on the left and the curved window rooms on the right. However the unit on the left looks like it has more updates, at least on the outside.

Most interesting comparison. Looks like these two houses were built at the same time, but with obvious differences. The windows are very different.

Kay said...

That is a tough one. I like the arches on the left windows but I prefer bay windows. I wonder why the stairs are offset on the right hand house. They're a very nice pair.

Iris Flavia said...

Yes. Our neighbour´s house is pink.
Ours... grey, sadly. At least we have a red door.

This is tricky Pat, I'm torn, I do love the red brick, but the grey is smart too ✨

Those are familiar sights.

Linda said...

The one on the left has been modernized, which makes for a nice interior. However, some day new owners will want an authentic look and change it back.
