My Morning Walk part 2

Part of my morning walk is through the garden of this lovely old house built in 1920 by J.O.Trethewey. He was a timber baron and his mill was on nearby Mill Lake ( "my" lake).
 I have a love of old houses whether they are old farm houses or  more grand ones.





                The dining room ( got this off the internet as well as the next one )



I've gone through this house a number of times, my favourite was once near Christmas when the whole house was decorated with a lovely big tree in the livingroom and greenery everywhere.  There were people in period dress and that just added to the atmosphere. I hope that will happen again one of these years.
 When I walk through an old place I imagine how it would be to live there. Of course they had servants so that would have made life easy ( not for the servants. The kitchen is small and cramped).

Thanks for visiting.  Please leave a message so I know you came by.
