Good Fences #79

I previously shared this property in Good Fences #72 as the first two photos in that post which featured a few fenced properties in town. Here's those photos again showing a lovely back yard and pretty front yard and neat old fence.

Front yard view from side street
Well, this is a sad update for that property. The historical home burned this summer. The fence is now ribboned with yellow caution tape

and the huge old tree is singed.
The little boy fountain in the back yard looks rather forlorn now.
I hope they will be able to clear the lot and rebuild someday.
Here's the link-up.

1. Link in a post featuring a photo or photos of fences or gates.
2. Link back to Run*A*Round Ranch Report in your post or use the badge code to display the Good Fences button in your post that automatically links back here.

Thank you!

Hi Tex, What a sad update but thanks for sharing and hosting Good Fences.

Anni said...

How sad to see this!! I didn't get to any postings this week, again. So, I just dropped in to say hello and see what you shared for fencing. Hope your week has gone well for you so far.

And, thanks for stopping by I'd Rather B Birdin' over the last weekend...time and my project isn't allowing much online time these days.

What a sad sight! The fence is still beautiful, though.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Theresa - how very sad ... some things are definitely recoverable or will sort themselves out - the tree, the fountain ... I hope it will be restored/repaired soon. Not nice to see .. Hilary

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

What a shame- so sad to see. Hopefully this property will have a new home on it once again soon.

Ramakrishnan Ramanathan said...

A terrible disaster ! Will they resurrect the property to its original glory ? Time will tell :(

Ramona said...

Oh my goodness!!! How Tragic :-( I hope the owners are safe. Keep us posted on what happens.

Buttons Thoughts said...

Oh this is just so sad. Hug B

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

So sad. It brings to mind all the homes recently destroyed in the California wild fires. The wealthy and affluent were not spared the tragedy.

Cath said...

Oh what a sad event....hope no-one was hurt.

Lynne said...

Very, very sad . . .
Fire is so very destructive.
And no matter where it strikes . . . history also leaves.
I hope someone is able to save the "Little Boy lost sculpture."

DJan said...

Gosh, What a terrible thing to happen to such a wonderful place! I also hope they will be able to rebuild and you'll show us that, too. :-(

Dicky Bird said...

aww that's too bad.

Sandra said...

so sad to see this old beauty destroyed. i know the owners hurt when they look at it.

DeniseinVA said...

How very sad for the owners, so many memories gone up in smoke. I hope they got through it okay and no one was injured.

Cranberry Morning said...

That is such a pretty fence with the brick posts at the entrance. How very sad that the house burned! I'm hope it was insured and I too hope it will be rebuilt.

Debbie said...

oooooh t, that is so very sad, makes my heart break. someones home, homeones nest, with all their special treasures. i hope no one was injured and perhaps they were able to get some of their special things after the fire!!!!

Oh deary such a mess but fences. Yes thank you for hosting.

Lynn said...

oh how sad, it was a shock to see that gorgeous and huge tree in the middle of the fire remains...

Francisco Manuel Carrajola Oliveira said...

Um grande contraste infelizmente com o fogo na casa.
Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

Andrea Priebe said...

That is a very sad story and even if they are able to rebuild on the property, they will never recapture the historic value of the original buildings. At least the fence survived :)

Andrea @ From The Sol

Carola Bartz said...

This is so sad. I, too, hope they can rebuild someday.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

So sad. I'll be waiting, hopefully, for the next series, showing a beautiful new home and refurbished lot.

Rose said...

Oh, I just hate that that happened. I always think it would be so awful to lose your home in a fire.

Anvilcloud said...

The first property looks so nice. sad to see the second one.

Jeevan said...

Hope no one injured in the fire... and also hope a pretty new house built over there. Nice shots on the happy and sad part of the fences.

LV said...

What a difference a day makes. This was a terrible thing and would be a shame if the did not restore. You did as always an excellent job capturing all this destruction. Take care.

happywonderer.com said...

Such a charming fence. I wonder if they'll re-build and what it will look like. Maybe in the future you can show us the 3 stages of this property.

Uppal said...

Beautiful and later burnt,a sad chapter in the journey of the place.

Small City Scenes said...

Sad indeed. The fence looks like a cemetery fence and now it is for the house.

William Kendall said...

A whole lot of damage, unfortunately.

Bob Bushell said...

I hope the trees get a little bit better, great photos anyway.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That must have been a "what the...?" moment for you to go back and see the fire damage. The fence has a so typical mid-western look to it in this California boy's eyes. I like it.

don said...

A fine series of attractive fences and great looking backyard. I always enjoy your posts when you have time to make one. Have a great day.

Christine said...

So sad to see this lovely old property lie in ashes. I do hope it is rebuilt. Coincidentally, my post today features a derelict place too with a fence in front.
Thanks again for hosting!

Miss Val's Creations said...

That is so sad. I hope the old tree has survived the fire.

Nancy Chan said...

Hi Theresa, so sad to see the current state of the once beautiful place. Hope the place will be restored to its former glory.

Aw, that is so sad. Was it arson, do you know? That is such a shame.

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, oh that is so sad, terrible to happen.Blessings Francine.

Jan said...

Aren't we glad we live in times when a burned out house is very rare. There was a time when whole neighborhoods burned down

Lowcarb team member said...

Goodness ... so sad.
I hope they can rebuild ok, it will be great if they can and do.

All the best Jan

Chris Rohrer said...

So sad about that gorgeous tree in the front:(

jeannettestgermain said...

How sad! That reminds me of all the houses that were lost in the fire I posted last week. Right now it's too close to me to go and look - I will at some point though.

magnoliasntea said...

Oh my, that is such a pitiful site. What a mess. I can only imagine how devastating that must have been to the owners.

Debby Ray said...

Oh, how awful! What a sad thing to see...hoping everyone was safe and that someone will be able to restore the former glory. Sad fence :(

Things doesn´t always went in the way that we want.
Hope that the house can be rebuilded and that the old big tree keep on growing.

Stephen Hayes said...

How tragic. I also hope they rebuild.

That's a real shame. I feel badly for the owners. Wonder if that tree will survive, and if they will be able to rebuild?

Lynn said...

What a shame, I was thinking how great that tree looked in the early photos!

messymimi said...

Let's hope they do rebuild, but keep as much of the property intact as they can!

It was really nice fence and hope that will be rebuilt soon.

That is very sad about the fire!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Oh my- that's sad. I hope no one was injured in the fire. Maybe the will rebuild soon.

genie said...

This is what I might call a cluttered yard. That’s a lot of stuff. Well, you really surprised me with the meme. I am so happy you have taken it over and turned it into your own. Your fences and gates have always been the absolute best.

Grantham Lynn said...

Oh what a bittersweet post. So sad to hear that lovely old place burned.
It did have a very nice fence. Glad to see it was saved.
I actually linked! I've resurrected my America The Beautiful Series so I'll be hoping to come by and linking with you.
Although they are borrowed photos. Hope its ok.
Hope you have a great party.
Oh come by and link Good Fences at my party. You can link every week!

Mama Zen said...

Oh, no!

Karen said...

Oh what a shame!

That's terrible... the before and after photos make it so clear.

Sad really... But I suppose all good things eventually come to an end.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
When a home burns down, there is a lot of character lost...
Hugs,
Mariette

Elaine said...

What a shame and what a loss that lovely tree is.

Breathtaking said...

These pictures make me feel sad for all the loss your neighbours have suffered.

Helma said...

Hi Theresa,
I had yesterday to see whether you'd be a blog for the fences and I did not. Then I went to work until midnight last night. Now I still put my link with it but I do not know if this is good.

Ms. A said...

I remember that house and fence. What a shame!

diane b said...

What a shame! I hope they can rescue that beautiful big tree.

Judy said...

Oh Wow, how sad is that.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Wow, that's terrible. At least it looks like the tree will still be there waiting for them

Wally Jones said...

What a loss. We'll pray for them.
The fence is still doing its job.

Maggid said...

very sad - I hope people and creatures involved are okay - AND, i hope it's a Phoenix kind of story, where something beautiful happens through the ashes.

Dearest Theresa;
OMG,What a tragic thing happened! The yellow caution tape looks SO sad as well as my new word forlorn.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Oh no, how very sad.

pattisjarrett said...

Well, that's sad. It was a lovely place.

Kathy said...

Oh, no! How sad. My mother's home burned about 20 years ago and it was probably the most devastating that happened in her life - even worse than severe medical problems, at least for her.
