Carriage house at 17th and Jerome

Carriage House at 17th and Jerome, Astoria, Oregon Yesterday I showed another side of this house with a large corner cupola (to the left, outside the current photo), and Mom of Three made the comment: "About two years ago, I saw a really old man puttering around out there. What's also great about that house is the carriage house there. It's in better shape. That place has it all. An amazing grassy front yard, views for days, and the architecture." "Views for days," refers to the fact that this house is perched at the top of 17th Street with an incredible view over the Columbia River and the town.

These are not fall colors. I took this photo on the same day in May as I took the pictures for yesterday's post. The lighting makes all the difference. The potting shed or tool shed is also interesting in that it is not separate from the house at all, but (speaking of corner cupolas) wraps itself around the corner of the house, covering part of two walls. It's all so intriguing, and I love the colors.

This place has so much character. I wish we could see some interior shots. Can you put on your ninja gear Sheryl?

Which begs the question: Top 10 Uninhabited Astoria Buildings that you'd like to break into--not for harm, just for a tour. Now that the Flavels are both in Portland care homes, what I would give to skulk around that house on 15th. I wouldn't steal a thing, either, just look and look and look. And the place on 17th. Which others??

The back is just as fantastic as the front! And even though you didn't take the picture now, it does look like autumn.

A house like this, with a view of the Columbia River: I could live in that tool shed!
