House Crush N° 32

House Crush on the hill.


Copper lanterns, a copper tented awning and stone walls—today’s House Crush simply exudes charm.

Nestled on top of a hill this cream colored house crush is surrounded by boxwood, ivy and hollies.

The architect, J. Ryan Duffey, did a wonderful job on the remodel of this home and took great care and consideration of the surrounding homes and neighborhood.

The kind home owner allowed me to photograph the back garden that she truly loves.

The garden was designed by Floralis Garden Design and is lush, green and lovely. The perfectly groomed lawn is steps from a dining ad grilling area and is surrounded by a brick wall and more boxwood.

I think I spotted a few hydrangea and roses waiting for spring.

In the back corner, the cutest shed and gate serves as extra storage—I just might need that shed in my garden.

Enjoy the tour!

    What a charming home! I love the awning in the front with the gorgeous steps leading up to the front landing, and the backyard is gorgeous! Happy Sunday, Lissy!

    Lissy, just started following your blog. I love the ‘House Crush’ series because most are smaller, charming, and the owners are proud of their homes.

    I would love to know where this lady found real shutters!
