My World #103: Pacific Grove Houses

10 Jan

I was looking thru my flickr uploads this past weekend and noticed that I have not shared some of the houses I snapped drive by while drving around Pacific Grove in May of last year. So here’s some that caught my lens and my eyes.

I’ve been fascinated by the houses and architecture lately.

    These homes are utterly charming … it would be wonderful to live in them. Such character!

    So many lovely old house, wonderfully kept up. They tell a story of the architecture in California’s past.

    I love all the variety, the character that each house has!! So different from the “just like the next one” neighborhoods you see most of the time these days. We live in an older neighborhood here in Seattle and the houses are different from each other, but not as gorgeous as these!!! Terrific captures! Hope you have a great week!

    What a great collection of houses. I wouldn’t mind living in any of them although I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the large ones unless I had a lot of help.

    So pretty, especially the last one. We used to photograph those Victorian houses in upstate New York.

    Fantastic. These are all what my husband calls “Kay houses” meaning they have porches or verandas, and are usually Victorian. I love love love Victorian architecture, the whole range of it. Thank you so much!

    these are all gorgeous and so BIG (except for the comfortably sized #2 & #6)

    the Craftsman styled one with the huge picture windows of the fourth one is my favourite.

    These are grand yet cozy. They make me wonder what one can see from the inside looking out!

    Such a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. That bright blue is very eye-catching.

    I like these houses, although that third one seems to be quite large for a single family.

    charming and welcoming. some of these houses are similar to the houses in a city in Negros where there are ancestral homes.

    re my CCP post, yes, the lagoon and fountain have always been there. but there was a time when they didn’t turn the fountain on–or maybe it was broken. no music and no dancing fountain at the CCP.:p

    those houses are absolutely beautiful, each unique in its own way and it’s hard to pick a favourite. great captures.

    I could see variety of houses; shapes, colors, size and so on. You are right. It is fascinating to see a house since we are going to build a house in the near future!
    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day.

    Hey, I can see my house from here!

    That last house is mine. My wife and I live in the all-white Victorian on the corner, the last one pictured. (Actually, the last two photos are of the same house.) It was built in 1894 for Dr. Andrew Jackson Hart, and is locally known as Dr. Hart’s House or the Hart Mansion (which is overstating it a bit). He was the town doctor, and delivered babies in the ground floor rooms.

    More recently, it’s been an antique store, candy shop, and a series of good restaurants, generally with the chef or proprietor living upstairs. When the last restaurant moved out, my wife and I moved in. No business for us so far; it’s just a residence.

    You can follow our modest renovation efforts here. http://hartsurgery.blogspot.com.

    For what it’s worth, the huge yellow house (#3) is the Grand View Inn, and is actually two separate B&B’s back to back. All the others are private residences, as far as I know.
