Parkie Pic of the Week

For those of you who live outside the area, University Park and Highland Park are together called Park Cities. Citizens of these fabled towns are called "Parkies". Hence, my new Friday fun feature which I am calling "Parkie Pic of the Week". One of the many reasons why I love living in Park Cities is that it is a great combination of new and old architecture. It's not a new custom community where every house is built off on five floor plan models. And it's not all old Victorian homes. There's old, new and old with new additions made to look like they've always been there. A little bit of everything.

This particular house is on Douglas Ave. and is about halfway between my house and Jackson's elementary school. So, I drive past it almost every day. It looks like an English cottage. I love the round turret. I keep waiting for Maid Marion to come out calling for Robin Hood and his Merry Men!
