Hidden Plainfield: December 19 home ID


Hedgerow at the edge of the lane.

Plainfield Today readers ARE well-traveled in the Queen City, but I have to admit yesterday's home (see here) was really off the beaten path...and at the end of the...Terrace.

Loretta Terrace, in Brisbane Estates, to be exact; that short street that runs parallel to Terrill Road and is accessed from same by way of Maxon Place, a short street with no homes facing it.

Where Loretta dead ends in some trees, there is a private lane by a hedgerow that leads back to the property, entirely surrounded by woods.



The home is on the lane at the end of Loretta Terrace.
Since the house appears older than Brisbane Estates or Whitewood Court, the cul-de-sac off Terrill Road which also abuts the property, I wonder how the owners of this landlocked home used to get access to the wider world. Was there a private drive that went out to  Terrill Road back in the day?

Next Sunday is Boxing Day, the day after Christmas.

Is there a home in Plainfield that conjures that popular (though not in the U.S.) holiday?

Check back next week.

Dan: is it spelled Maxon? A grammar grouch. See you tonight.

I'm sort-of sad that several commenters (myself included) thought that the house was in Sleepy Hallow, an area with which I'm guessing many readers are familiar, but that it was actually in Brisbane Estates, where it appears there are few readers and fewer explorers from across the Leyland Avenue border. Yet more evidence, as if more were needed, of the two Plainfields.
