Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Stratford-Upon-Avon
Home in Oklahoma, but with my heart in England, I've been on the lookout for British influences in my town. I didn't have to look very far, either. Below is our neighbor's house, a modest brick ranchstyle home. What makes it British then? Diamond-paned windows and roses. And wouldn't you know, the orange brick is reminiscent of Jane Austen's home in Chawton.
Another glimpse I've had of Britain was granted me when I went out for a walk in the neighborhood near my downtown office. An apartment building in roughly Tudor style that reminds one of Anne Hathaway's cottage in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The corner tenant has let the English ivy creep up the walls for an especially authentic effect. (Note the diamond-pane windows!)
