“If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with.” ― L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Kaweah Falls: California Waterfall Retreat now a Vacation Rental

Kaweah Falls, this rustic retreat was built right in the heart of Three Rivers, CA near the entrance to Sequoia National Park where the enchantment of wildlife sightings runs wild. What also happens to run wild is the river that flows under this home, something that has never been done before or ever since!

Italianate Victorian homes blend formal & classical styles inspired by country villas from the Old World. Built in rectangular sections to imitate the look of Italian-style villas. Common features: Roman-style arches, large porches with decorative eaves, paired arched windows, Corinthian columns, flat or low-pitched roofs, & a central square tower or cupola.

The Second Empire reflected a new kind of urban architecture, inspired in great part by the apartment buildings in Paris and other western European cities. Often, these were highly ornamented buildings with a tall and flat facade, topped with a mansard-style curved roof. Long dormer windows often sat at the top of the building, and bay windows were common as well. These homes usually had a rectangular floor plan with a central hall and double entry doors.

Folk Victorian combines Victorian romanticism with classic English cottage and American homestead style. These homes, usually found in more rural settings, blend functionality with ornamentation, including gingerbread-accented wraparound porches and the colorful use of local materials. However, these houses are often more simply designed than urban homes of the same period.
