I ran and snapped a quick pic of the Phillips house tonight — not too icy — but I will try to get a better one when the weather clears. Beautiful multi-color stone home, built by Ryan Osborne. And as usual, I stand corrected. (If I had a dollar…) The Phillips bought the home from Osborne so they are the first family to live in the house. It has a kind of U-shape, the garage on the left, and that structure on the right is actually a guest house. No kidding. When they bought the house, they had the builder put the guest house out front at their request, and despite a few objections from the neighborhood. (Neighborhoods!) Why did they want the guest house here?¬† It was where Phillips mother-in-law was going to live. (What a great son-in-law to go to all that trouble.) Anyhow, she ended up not liking it after all, and moved to a nearby retirement home instead. But you know what, I think it makes guests feel extra special to have the guest house in the front, not back, of the property.
What do you think?
