Wandering in the City


When I was headed home from Scottsdale recently, on a whim I decided to take a residential street across town instead of the usual busy Camelback corridor.  I'm so glad I did.  I discovered some beautiful homes in and area I had never seen before.


This one and the one above where very large on huge properties with lots of trees.  They didn't really look like Arizona at all.


I liked the look of this home with all the windows and neatly trimmed yard.  I see at least 8 gables but I bet there were more in the back.


I'd love to see the stairway inside the round tower on this one.  This place was a little more like the Spanish style that is known in the southwest.


This one is a more traditional ranch style home but those old olive trees in front against that grey and overcast sky added a bit of mystery to it.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  In the same spirit of adventure as this post, I'm taking a road less traveled.

That's an amazing collection of beautiful homes. I like that they are all so different but they are also probably very expensive. Thanks for the tour!

Beautiful homes, Sharon.
My preferred photo is the last one, with the two large trees :)

All amazing, but the last one with the big trees is spectacular!

Those are some big houses. I love the fact that the owners of that last one have preserved those two big trees. They definitely MAKE the property.

They are all lovely but my favourite is the last one with those fantastic trees!

The third one is my preferred choice.

As always, I am drawn to the Spanish-style house.

Some of these are palaces by our standards. There is a lot of money around metro PHX .Where and in what do the normal people live?
