The only clue that there may be more to the property is the large gate to the left rear of the white house, and the 4 huge rolling garbage cans that go out by the street every week. If you saw those 4 cans, and didn't know how many people live there, you'd think they had thrown one heck of a party!

Those greener pastures I mentioned in yesterday's post are just down the road a bit. The 3 men who developed our neighborhood 35 years ago lived here for a while; probably 10-12 years. I was told they got bored with the area and tired of hearing complaints and people asking for road repairs and streetlight replacements, so they moved on.
They owned land, lots of land, not far from here. They cleared part of it, built three mansions, several pools, a 9-hole golf course and a caretaker's home and moved in to this compound, which is so private it cannot be seen from the road. In fact, if you didn't know it was there, you'd never figure it out. The caretaker's home is a lovely, small (by comparison) white, clapboard cottage with grass that is so green you'd almost swear it isn't real. I don't think they have sheep, like in the pic above, but it is similar, with low, rolling hills.
Note: the photo above is one I found on the web - it is not my neighborhood.
