Olivers new home

We went to Heather and Andrew's home for supper recently, and I thought I would share a few pictures so you could see their place.

They are renting right now, and live in the top of this house.  It's in an area where there are a lot of these big old houses.  I love the charm they have!  (I took this photo earlier in the year, when there was still snow on the ground.)



Their house sits on a hill and it overlooks the Grand River.  This picture doesn't show it well, but they have a nice view of the city and the river.



They had crocus blooming already!



Here's Oliver!  He is happy on his cat tree, which sits in front of this big window with a view he enjoys during the day.  Alaina has come to visit him a few times.  He doesn't have as many hiding places here!

I didn't think to take more pictures inside!  We were enjoying a yummy dinner and good conversation.  I'll leave you with one more picture from their place.


Here's the sunset over the city.   What a beautiful view!

Your daughter and son-in-law have a beautiful view...and I love the home. We don't have any of that type of house in the area where we live, but in the area I was born in (about 30 minutes from here) there is a section of that town that every house looks like that. It's my favorite part of town. ;)

Have a great weekend, Mari!

Doris said...

Neat house and awesome views too! The house reminds me of the one we moved from last year.
Have a wonderful day!

Patsy said...

What a nice home with lots of room, sure Oliver will be happy with his mom in new home.

There is something about the charm and personality of an older home...and the view of the river...wow!! I bet if the city lights can be seen, that would be a big plus.

Now wait a minute...did Oliver move out? Or the 'new home' is the cat cradle? Color me confused.

What a beautiful view to have! xx

Connie said...

This a new experience for Heather - living in GR. I'll bet the house fits them though perfectly. The cat looks quite comfy also.

Brooke said...

so pretty!!!!!

I love big houses with porches! How pretty, and the view is priceless. They have a lovely home. Oliver looks quite content on his perch!!

Cherdecor said...

I love Heather and Andrew's house! I like houses "Where Porches are Wide and Words are Long!" That would make a beautiful summertime porch. Every porch must have a swing and some ferns. Then at night they could sit out there and view the city lights. So, so nice!

So.....Oliver has no place to hide from Alaina. Hahahaha! Poor baby!

Dee said...

They have really great views. I'll bet they're loving that. Oliver looks happy in his cat tree, too.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend... :)

Susan said...

So lovely and nice.

Simply Linda said...

What a lovely home! I understand about living in a two family home. We live in the bottom/first floor of a shared home. Waving to Oliver. Blessings

Jenny said...

Oliver looks like he's sitting on his throne :) Great views! I know what you mean about getting involved in the conversation and food and forgetting to take photos :)
