TaLL Oaks Estate

Richard owned a beautiful home and property when we met. I remember the first time I drove up the to his house; I turned the corner off of a busy road and suddenly was under a canopy of tree's on a street that boasted a cottage like setting.
The French chateau style house is set back 265 feet from the road and the trek up to the house instilled in each visitor that they were about to venture into something very special. The original oak floors were preserved, the fireplace roared as it did back in 1941 when the house was originally built and character seeped out of the walls.

I was already charmed by 'the Man'; so discovering this beautiful spot and enjoying it with him was a bonus. We lived in the house together before he sold it :: and yes, I staged it, but truthfully it had the best bones you could ever hope to work with.

It always felt magical walking up this drive
Pagoda made of Coconut wood :: most dense wood. This was the most perfect place to nap as the waterfall whispered around you.

Foo Dog is the topper on an Asian Horse Pole. The pole is approximately 10 feet high and now it is in an encased base and adorns Richards office.
