Thursday doors…Redondo Beach

On my Monday walk, you had a chance to see one of the multi-million houses we saw while out walking in Manhattan Beach, California. The area of Redondo Beach where our daughter and her husband live doesn’t operate on that scale even though the prices of homes in California will surprise you and not in a good way. But there are plenty of lovely homes that are on a more human scale. I spent some time walking around the neighborhood looking mostly for doors and flowers. Here are my first examples of the former.

    I agree with Sue πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Beautiful photos. Love that first picture. Everyone has such neat and beautiful areas arounfd their homes.

  4. Beautifully done, and I love the variety in your collection!

    I really like that first house. The curves, the arches, the roof, the windows and that lovely door are all in such perfect proportion. It fits together so well. It’s an example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. The second door is a wonderful wooden door.

    • The first one was a bit like a mini castle. πŸ˜‰. I liked the variety of house styles (and doors, of course.). We don’t have much variety of either here, so that made it more enjoyable.

    That first photo of the house and the garden and the door! Wowsa. What a way to live.

    • This is a manageable size, not like the gigantic beachside properties I showed a few days ago. Still expensive because it’s California, but on a ore human scale. The entryway on that first one is so different but everyone in this area had lovely gardens.

  7. Teresa says:

    Beautiful, especially the first one.

  8. Such character and creativity! I love all that unique architecture. I’d be so happy to call any of these places home.

  9. I like the first house with the cottage feel and what looks like a nice garden too. Great finds, Janet!

  10. They look great, the first is a favorite with me too.

    Looks like a lot of interesting stucco work in that part of town.

  12. Mmmm, you found the chocolate house! πŸ˜€ I love this trio.

    That first house is lovely – looks like something out of a fairy tale. You should’ve knocked to see which Princess answers the door. Snow White? Rapunzel? Cinderella?

    I love that little porch, so welcoming. (K)

  15. Hi, Janet, I love the way Nature embraces these homes. We should all be so fortunate! Thanks for sharing! 🌞

    SQUEEEEEEEEEE! That first house!!!!!! Pardon me for a hour or two while I daydream.

    • Take as much time as you need, Marian. πŸ™‚ I was doing a bit of dreaming while I was there, mostly about gardens that I wouldn’t be able to grow in Arizona.

  17. Resa says:

    Nice doors,Janet! That first home is A+++++

  18. scooj says:

    Some nice doors and rather curious architecture. I look forward to seeing more.

  19. slfinnell says:

    No cookie cutter houses for the Thursday Doors bunch! πŸ™‚ These were lovely!
