Over the summer, I took these pictures of some of my favorite houses and rose bushes in Woods Hole. I’ve been riding my bike around these streets for 50 years, but am looking at the same sights with a new eye through my camera.
For the most part, the village has charming, modest sized houses on small lots. Many were originally built as summer cottages. With water on 3 sides, growth has long reached full capacity. Values are high and properties are kept in the family, rarely going on the market.
Does this sound too much like a real estate ad? I just want to give an overview of the neighborhood. So far, the trend toward McMansions has been held at bay!
these homes are lovely! I love the character of older homes and hope those mcmansions stay away from your neighborhood!
Next to olde England, I love New England best with your neck of the woods at the top of the list. Haven’t been to Woods Hole and Famouth for too many years. Nice knowing its still there and still charming.
So glad the McMansions have not trodden on all the charming houses in your part of the world! These remind me of old houses I used to see on Long Island, NY, where I grew up. I had the privilege of living in an old Cape Cod style house one year on LI and loved how cleverly every nook and cranny was put to use.
Roses near the water are always more beautiful than other roses to me. Fabulous photos!
BTW, it feels like summer in CT today!
love the red door and teal shutters!
