Hancock Park Revisited

Last week I shared some photos I took while sleuthing around Hancock Park.  It turned out, I had to return for another job the following day so I traveled some new streets and took a few more photos.  In the above house I love the garland that is surrounding the front entrance.  That is a real vine.  It's beautiful.  And what about the following house?  Is this medallion incredible?  I wish I could have gotten a better photograph.  It really blends in with the stucco on the house.  This home sits on a corner lot, and the entrance to the home is on an angle so you see this directly from the corner.

I'm sharing three pictures of the following home.  Of course, I love the red door surrounded by all the white.  This arched door makes a real statement, and the walkway leading up to it is so inviting and lush.

Here is a side view of the walkway.  This home screams curb appeal, doesn't it?  I love the tree roses.  I so wanted these on my walkway which curves very similar to this one, but we have too much wind so I opted to go with regular rose bushes.

Check out the size of these tree roses.  Just regular iceberg tree roses, but they are incredible, aren't they?

The next home has beautiful eyebrow ornamentation about the windows.  I love all the details on these homes.

I fell in love with the next house.  I love climbing roses.  When I got a little closer, I realized there is some beautiful hand painting on the inside of the foyer.  This home was very Tuscan in feeling.

And how about these morning glories?  They were certainly glorious on this sunny morning.

Last but not least, there was not a lot of color to this front yard, but I love the tree lined entrance and the manicured hedges.  This was a very stately home.

Well, thanks for taking another tour with me.  I love to visit other people's gardens especially when I can admire them and not have to take care of them.

I have never seen tree roses that big! They are gorgeous and so are the homes there. What a great area! xo Diana

Truly lovely. I do miss the tall tree roses being out of production. My husband loves ours- but when he found out what they cost- he understands why I didn't bring home more):-

Thanks for more pics of this beautiful neighborhood. Love the red door on that first house. Nothing like roses in California.
