HOMES OF HARBOR SPRINGS-PART THREE

Just another "cottage" in Harbor Springs. This one sits on a bluff overlooking the harbor and the Bay. Many homes incorporate stone in their foundation and other places. 

This little number sits on the Bay. Again, note the stone foundation.

  1. What a wonderful house! And the flowers! It seems very relaxing to leave there!

  2. Fine 'cottages', the stone part is unusual and amazing.

  4. I suppose the guy who owned yesterday's car and plane, also owns one of these "cottages". Love the stone.

  5. Beautiful houses. How old do you suppose them to be? Maybe it at one time flooded there and so the foundations are all stone? I am just full of questions this morning. MB

  6. I do rather like these little "cottages." And I do rather like the stone work. Our house has a limestone rock facade and our fireplace is of the same. It's a nice effect.

    I don't think I would want to pay the taxes on this house, though, or try to heat or cool it. Is it used year-round?

    Sorry about all the trees in your yard. That's what I'm afraid of, only we have these huge water oaks, also, which would crush the house!

  9. They look like dolls' houses :) you can even see where the hinges would be on the top one.

  10. Beautiful home. I'm always amazed by what passes as a "cottage." In Newport, Rhode island the cottages are mansions of several tens of thousands of square feet. This is at least manageable in size. Probably no more than 5,000 sq. ft. :)

  12. Yes... a cottage indeed! But where is the thatched roof? It's a lovely house!

  13. "Cottages," geez. The wealthy Brits refer to their country mansions similarly. Great architecture, though, thanks for sharing.

  16. Imposing, impressive and luxurious!

  17. Both are amazing houses. I wonder how much they cost.

    Or more importantly, can I afford the upkeep of the house. :-)

  18. Those are gorgeous! They remind me a little of the house I grew up in.

  19. I'm also thinking "stone fireplace". Not sure if there is ever something I'd call winter ;) but probably fine for some cocooning all the same.
