All Things Old Northeast

A Northeast Ranch

 In the 1870s at the big bend in the road just north of Sunrise Drive and Gladstone Boulevard stood the Scarritt Mansion.... built by Nathan Scarritt around 1872.. it burned to the ground in 1879... a field was there until the 1950s when this ranch was built by the Hunters.... that family owned the home until Mrs. Hunter passed away a few years ago.  It's on the market and I got to see the inside....

 it's fun to see inside a house you've driven by for years and years......
My usual kit.... Nikon D800 and 14-24mm lens.  ISO 800 inside, 400 outside.  Night shot 6400.

 The basement is HUGE... with multiple rooms and a fireplace.

 The home was constructed with steel beams... unusual for the time..

 Above and below, cedar closet....

 At night.... below.... a great view of the East Bottoms....  
I'm not involved with the selling.... but we want good folks in NE..... here's the listing:,852&ret=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5lcmljYnNlbGxza2MuY29tL0hFQVJUTEFORC9JRFgxMDgtOTc1NjU5OS9OQS9DaXR5L05BL1R5cGUvQWxsL2xpc3RpbmdzP3Jlc3VsdHR5cGU9MTAxJnRpZD0mcXM9MCZoZHI9MDEwMDEsODUy

Historic Northeast Mini-Mansions Volume 1

 I've driven or ridden past 3911 Sunrise Drive for decades and always wanted to see inside.
It's now on the market so I got my chance.   It's advantageous working with realtors :)
 This house and it's virtual twin next door west were built in 1927.   Don't know the names of the first owners but they liked quality.
 This house is rock solid and surprisingly spacious.

 Above, the tile in the front walkway was left-over bits and pieces from the construction of the roof.

 Above two, the living room.  Below, the parlor.

 Above and below the dining room.
 I think the rest of these rooms are self-explanatory.    All photos taken with the Nikon D800 on a tripod.  Nikon 14-24mm lens.  ISO 800.  F13 multiple exposures using LiveView to minimize camera shake and merged using software.  5 shots for each image.

 Below, the second floor rooms.

 Above, the garage door is on the back of the house and leads to the basement.  Plenty of room for two smaller cars.
Eric B has the listing.  See it here:,852&ret=L0hFQVJUTEFORC9JRFgxMDQtNDc0MjkzOS9NTy1LUy9BZGRyZXNzLzM5MTEtc3VucmlzZS1kcml2ZStuYS9UeXBlL0FsbC9saXN0aW5ncz9TZWFyY2hPcHQ9MSZrZXlvcHQ9MSZ0aWQ9JnFzPTAmaGRyPTAxMDAxLDg1Mg==
