Grandiose Gate


There are many lovely homes on Summit Avenue in St. Paul, but not many have a fence and gate such as this.  To the right there is another identical gate that opens to the driveway and garage. A bit ostentatious for a urban area?

  2. I think it's quite nice. It seems to be in harmony with this house. Isn't Summit Avenue one of the city's ritzy streets?

  3. Fancy schmancy fence. There are areas in Toronto with ostentatious fences like that. Must be NICE to have money like that.

  4. Beautiful gate, but I like the unfenced front yards of my old American neighbourhood much better!

  7. I lived in a house once where the front was fenced. My little daughter loved the freedom of have both the front and back to play in. I like it

  8. I see lots of gated places like this here in the desert. This is certainly a beautiful home.

  12. I think the brick walkway and the gate go well together.

  13. A very fashionable fence, ready for a villa.

  14. A stately abode --- why not flaunt it? Keep the dogs in and the riffraff out, and create photo opportunities...

  18. It is a pretty place. I'm fine with the fence and gate, though it would not be my choice.

  20. I don't care for fences on the front side of a house. But at least this one is open and not the privacy style.

  21. I like it, though probably wouldn't live there. It kind of says, "Stay away."

  22. It's not bad Kate, not keen on gates myself but as gates go these are rather nice.

  23. It's pretty for a gate. I guess if you can't live in a gated community this would be the next best thing?
