Casa Query: What's Your View?

Casa Query: What's Your View?

In E.M. Forster's A Room with a View, on holiday in Italy, Miss Honeychurch and Miss Bartlett are vexed to find out that their views are not quite they were hoping for, and then an elderly man and his son offer to trade rooms, presenting them with perfect views. This encounter proves to be important to the plot. In cities like New York, a perfect view can mean a difference of millions of dollars in real estate prices. Tell me, what's your view? Unless, the back of your home is a concrete wall, you're bound to have more than one — which do you prefer? Show me what you're looking at these days by posting a photo in the Su Casa group, and give me the scoop by commenting below!

Sorry about the photo faux pas! I love Whiplashgirl's view! My sister, Bizzybee, has a very similar view and there are many times when I am visiting that I stand at the window with that view and gaze at it for hours. Especially early in the morning and late at night when the entire Philly skyline lights up!

My views in Denver are different from my views in the mountains above Santa Fe. I am just four minutes from downtown Denver and from my upstairs alcove and bedroom window, I can see the Denver skyline, but from the lower level, I have views of the Victorians that grace my neighborhood. My backyard view is green and peaceful! The Santa Fe views are of the mountains and are gorgeous. My favorite? Couldn't answer that because I love them all :-) Don't know if the pictures will come out, I didn't have the option of adding an image. If not, you can check my views out on my page in the photo galleries! IMG_1668.xlarger.JPG IMG_0794.JPG_.jpg IMG_0772.JPG_.jpg

the only real window (that doesn't face the side of another house) is the one in the main room facing the backyard and a garage. :( usually the tenant's daughter is back there making a racket and such so we close the blinds/curtain. it is really hot out these days so we leave the window open and it is really loud from that annoying kid.

The front of our house just faces the yard, road & houses across the street. Out one side is a private drive and the other side are corn fields. The back faces our gravel parking area & my husband's "man cave."

I have some trees in the back and the street in the front. I have a pretty nice neighborhood so I often get great views down the hill when the sun sets and can smell the ocean. :)

I have the 3rd and 4th stories of an old brownstone in Philadelphia. From my deck, I've got about a 270 degree view of the city. This is facing east. I'm about 6 blocks from the Delaware River and I can see the Ben Franklin Bridge. I took this photo at dawn. I don't have a photo of when I'm facing west (not here at work, at least) but I have an amazing view of the Center City skyline.

My view isn't that bad; too bad we're only renters! We live in a spacious house out in a somewhat remote area. The builders envisioned a little separate town; they have their own downtown area with a handful of restaurants and shops. Very cozy. Our house backs up to a conservation area, primarily wetlands, so we just have a bunch of foliage, as well as the neighborhood on the other side of the conservation. It's actually really pretty, especially with all the wildlife. The fireflies have just started coming around to make for a perfect summer night. It all makes up for the fact that we live in a subdivision where the houses are bunched together and you can practically reach out a window and touch your neighbor's house!

Well my living room and kitchen windows face the tennis courts of a park located directly across the street. My former boss lived in a high rise in NYC with views of NJ and the Statue of Liberty, she paid $3600/month for a one bedroom on the 27th floor. Non statue views in the same building and same apt. size went for $2100/month.

My views are nothing spectacular...the back of my townhouse faces some woods, while the front faces the driveway. I wish my view was the ocean though!
