I like that red door!

Dan J. said...

Wow !!! That place is HUGE !!!
I'd love to see what it looks like on the inside.

Steffe said...

Not sure about the door. That red color takes away a lot from the rest of the building I think. Try sneaking back late at night with some paint.

At first I didn't like the red door, but after a while I decided I kinda like it!

I think if Mick Jagger drove by, he would sing, "I see a red door and I want it painted black . . . "

That red door knocks your eyes out.

The place is gorgeous! Nice capture!

What a stately looking place. Very nice.

Olivier said...

elle est plus sobre que celle du président, mais elle est très belle tout en bois

Bibi said...

I like the door, too! Maybe now Obama will want one!

VP said...

A beautiful house, the red catches the eye much more than the white, which enhance the red anyway.

The red door is so striking! Catches all the attention right from when you first lay your eyes on the photo :-) Nice shot Jacob!

Looks like it's wearing lipstick.

Jim Klenke said...

I bet its neat inside.

I think they need to tone down that door a little. Then again, it could be the Sig Ep house;inside joke to any Sig Ep's in the audience.

What a great place. I love the red door.

My Mother painted her door bright shiny red. It looks great.

We all should be so daring. MB

Hilda said...

Very grand and handsome, and that red door is so striking!

Lois said...

I love the red door! It adds just enough color to make this house interesting.

Halcyon said...

Love the red door!

Marie said...

Beautiful and so well maintained. Is it a private property?

Happy Women's Day to Lois and all your blogger friends.

Rob said...

Wow, that is a grand door!

Jarart said...

They don't have to worry about anyone not finding the door. I like red doors myself. Back in the old days, a red door meant that the house was fully paid for.

Allison said...

What do you call someone in the White House who is honest, ethical, intellectual, law abiding, and truthful?
A tourist. ...

I'll bet you thought I ran out of jokes, huh?

JM said...

I enjoyed this photo as much as the comments! :-)

Daryl said...

Fun ..

That door needs a lick of green paint. Other than that, I'll take it, it's so much more human sized than the other one. Plus I bet the location is much nicer.

Successfully embiggened, door and all. Has anyone objected to your snapping photos of houses?

Andreea said...

It's beautiful. Love the red door.

nopham said...

Our house in FL is a smaller version.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

So stately! And the red door seems so inviting.

Cezar and Léia said...

What an impressive home! Wow!

What a wonderful capture of stateliness. I like the door, beckoning me to enter. Great contrasts with the splash of red.

Beautiful.

Trillian said...

I think that the touch of red makes the house very original and...nice shot!

Leif Hagen said...

I wish the Obamas lived in THAT white house!

tapirgal said...

I like the door. Nice pic all around, looks quite balanced to me. Nice, cheery photo. I think it would take some courage to come up with that scheme, so bravo!

Wolynski said...

Lovely home you have.

Rose said...

Love that red door!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Nice, but red doors? Hmmm!

Lisa Wilson said...

I love the bright red doors!
