Curb appeal

Ok...there's no curb, and you can barely see the house from the road. But this is it...our place.



What does your house look like? Got curb appeal?

What lovely shrubs..maybe no curb, but really natural.

yay for sage brush, this picture reminds me of my house growing up, we had the exact same view!

Here is a pic of my house in the winter!

Look at those poor trees! I think our house has oodles of curb appeal. In the summer it is lovely, I can't find a pic though.

THanks for the quick memory jolt of my youth!

hmmmmmm...I think I need new reading glasses. Is that little brown thing in the middle your house?! How great that you have so much privacy back there. I would like to think we have curb appeal, although not enough for my taste. That would entail a plethora of improvements that are on my wish list - just waiting for my bank account to catch up!

i love all the trees and shrubs and land. You may not have a curb, but it is definately appealing!!

my house has some curb appeal. It would have more if I had the time and money to make it so.

I would say you definitely have curbless appeal!! :D

Beautiful!

oooh...looks like you could find a lot of stuff out there that would be good for the body (herbs).

lovely.

Hey there!!! * waving frantically *

I'd love to have that curb - ours has minimal appeal, and I mean minimal...!

Our apartment in NY has zero curb appeal. It is a building.......
Morocco had a front door but not a curb.
I think you made a very good choice of husband. He has nice eyes.
Yes your hair was quite big but not the BIGGEST.
All best wishes for many many more years of happiness.

Hmmm... I'm afraid my house has not got the curb appeal, but it does boast a superb front garden courtesy of Mrs Cuban in London (she's British actually!)

Nice pic.

Greetings from London.

Hi there. I recently made the trip to Central Oregon, Sunriver to be exact and I absolutely loved it! It's so pretty.

mmmm....I think the picket fence and the scallops give it some...you take them away and I got nothing. I think yours is ruggedly beautiful!

I'll take your desert brush and send you out some of our curb, there is a lot of it if you want some :) I just marvel at your area all the time, so beautiful and expansive!

My house has about 5% curb appeal. A big weedy dirt patch where an oil tank was dug up, the front steps in disrepair and the driveway walls crumbling. Yet another year of "other expenses" takes us away from our dream front yard. We'll see what next year brings. At least the house is in decent shape!

Love, love, love the high desert! Great photo :)

Victoria said...

I don't see the house but the front yard looks lovely!

Oh...I think you've got great curb appeal there...just not the kind that can be replicated on TV shows. No one does better than mother nature when it comes to landscaping!
We have your basic suburban man-made curb appeal.

Oh man forget about my curb I want to live by yours. Ah the smell of sage after rain is something I miss dearly. That is not enough to move back Burns though.

nuvonova said...

So amazing. I'm in London, I won't have anything pretty to show!

Hey Harriet said...

I think my curb is more appealing than my house
