A Peek at the Beautiful Shropshire Hills of England - 09/23/09 08:45 PM
Since my grandmother died her idyllic old stone house (well cottage really), in Shropshire has been passed on to my Uncle. I thought I'd put a couple of photos on here to show you the old stone building.
The cottage, built in the early 1800's and sitting in the hillside, originally belonged to the local Farrier. The stables are in the smaller building to the right. The house has 2 ft thick walls, original beams, and an original wooden spiral staircase leading up to 3 small bedrooms. It's a fantastic place in summer, but can be quite cool in winter, (9 comments)

Our 85 year old Blue Bridge is causing heated discussion! At least it goes up and it goes down, which is more than most bridges do these days! It's a dilemma and one that should only be resolved by a referendum. For more information see the following website: http://johnsonstreetbridge.org/?tag=referendum
and Benjamin Madison's great photos show some wonderful views of the Blue Bridge: http://victoriadailyphoto.blogspot.com/search?q=blue+bridge
It's a great time to buy ... according to our local newspapers: "Real Estate in Victoria is On The Rebound."
Many of the best homes are sold shortly after they are listed. Want to know why? The buyers learned about the new listing first! Please contact me or visit my website to receive my daily Hot New Listings Alerts. These lists show homes with addresses and photos, even before they hit the MLS. I can also send you a list of homes within a specific price range - it can save (0 comments)
