When we moved in this neighborhood 2 years ago, we noticed (you couldn’t miss it) a big, huge house on the mountain ridge overlooking our subdivision & wondered about it then. We actually live on a little mountain, with rolling hills all around us. Our fall color has just reached peak right here at Thanksgiving, so I thought I’d show you some of the beautiful colors that are peeking out right now. Rumour has it that this house was built by a developer as a spec house & it never sold. It was listed at $2.5 million on the MLS listing last time I saw it. We don’t think anyone has ever lived here from what we’ve been told. The first month or so after we moved in, my hubby and I went hiking in our woods and ended up at this house by chance, where we peered in the windows & enjoyed the awesome views from the top of the mountain.
Here’s a beautiful fall shot of color from on top of the mountain.
And the big sprawling house. We decided to drive up the steep driveway this week & take a look at the house again & see the beautiful views right now, since our Fall color is just glorious. Still can’t figure out if it is occupied, although from what we’ve heard, it is being rented out for weddings and big events. Don’t know what the real truth is, but this is one BIG house. I think there are 5 garage bays. I wouldn’t want a house this big, but it’s fun to look at. We sometimes see all the lights on at night.
Here’s the front door. Here’s another shot of the view from the top. Really beautiful this time of year. The mountain was leveled for the house to be built, so there are views from all sides of this place. This is the frontside.
And this is overlooking our neighborhood on the backside. Who needs to go to NC or TN, when we’ve got this in our backyard?!
More fall color driving through our neighborhood, I couldn’t resist taking some pics to capture these days.
And yellow leaves.
We weren’t sure we would get much fall color this year with our drought, but it surprised us after all & we are being rewarded right now with some pretty leaves. I just love this time of year. Not looking forward to them all falling though, as I don’t love raking leaves. Hubby gets to do most of that.
Brilliant red across the street from us.
And looking out from our back deck to the neighboring ridge across from us.
