I've been wanting to show you a wonderful home that is about two blocks from Patty's and mine. The address is 9926 Robin Hill. Robin Hill is in a big area of Dallas known as Lake Highlands.
While my photography doesn't begin to do it justice, nevertheless I wanted to show you three pictures of it that I took today.
Notice that the house's cube dimension is pleasant to the eye, and notice that the architect and builder didn't use whatever windows they could get on sale. Consequently, the facade totally has symmetry. This doesn't seem to happen much in these days and times...at least it doesn't in Dallas.
I also like the acute display of Pride of Ownership. The comfortable cane chairs on the porch with the plump pillows, the basket of flowers hanging on the door. The American flag, the pumpkins and the scarecrow.
Cliff, the guy with the biology degree who can't stand to work inside, is the neighborhood gardener. He keeps these grounds as if they were attended to yesterday. Cliff and his family live on the next corner.
And I love the bay window with the standing copper seam roof that the owners added last year. You can't see it in the picture, but there's a ladder back love seat there in the window.
There are many more houses in Lake Highlands that fit this bill. Patty's and mine is one of them. But I don't think any are as close to perfect as 9926 Robin Hill.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Stewart for creating the Lake Highland's Inspiration House.
