I knew that Mr. and Mrs. Seller of this version of Maison Newton had a lot of work done to the place -- new roof on house and garage, new siding, new windows and doors on the house, privacy fence added along the driveway, a very large concrete patio and new service walk to the rear storage area (roofed over by Mr. Seller) behind the garage installed, and more. I thought the house was very attractive when I saw it for the first time. I especially liked the crisp white trim against the darker siding.
I did not realize how much of a difference those improvements made until today, when I found a Google Earth street photo of my home from August 2011. Here is what it looked like then:
Here is what it looked like in the spring, 2014 listing photos:
I wasn't even sure it was the same house when I first saw the Google Earth image! It was the evergreens on the right side of the driveway that convinced me it was, indeed, my house!
And here is what it looks like now:

Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan
