My Favorite Front Porch Yet

In my real estate adventures today, I was in a Bristow neighborhood with covered front porch after covered front porch.  Even the plainest covered front porch will make me smile, but this one looked like an oasis.

A Fabulous Covered Front Porch

With its stone steps, white columns and billowy sheers it was impossible to walk past and not snap a photo.  Wouldn't you love to see the view from that padded outdoor furniture?  Thought that might be a little too weird.

When these folks are ready to sell, I hope they hire me and leave that front porch just the way it is.  That curb appeal is irresistible.

Thereis nothing that is more of a welcoming sight, than a wonderful front porch.  I have a small front porch at my own home, but I'm envious of the one you have pictured.

It is a nice front porch and a nice home Chris Ann, hopefully they will entrust the job of finding the new owners to you when the time comes.

Beautiful. There aren't many front porches in my part of the country, but this proves there should be!

Hi Chris Ann - That is a nice porch, and I've never seen sheers used that way before - that's the right porch for it, though.

I just love that look - as long as someone else is going to be taking down, cleaning them and putting them back up for me.  LOL  Seriously, I love the metal roof and the stone on the steps, even the light post - the whole look is one of a country farmhouse, completely enticing.

Lovely... this picture would be a perfect post card

 Send the owners your post and maybe in the future they will call you for the listing.

Maybe you should find an occasion to introduce yourself to the owners, show them this blog. Who knows?
