I like to play this game where I bribe myself to run with the treat of cruising through some of Omaha’s loveliest neighborhoods. That way I can snap a photo of some gorgeous house while pretending I live there and feeling all fancy and stuff. Inevitably, I’ll get busted by the homeowner taking a pic, often as my dog decides it’s a great time to poop in the creeped-out homeowner’s yard. After awkwardly leaving their sidewalk, I’ll scoot away with a little gem to share. Victory!
These are just some of the houses that had me charmed enough to post to Instagram in the last year.
Gold Coast with the landlocked Nebraska’s take on a widow’s walk.
Dundee and that ivy.
Bemis Park’s historic Victorian dream.
Country Club with a house that looks amazing in every season.
Joslyn Castle. OK, I kind of cheated.
Country Club and complete lamp post goals. Those alliums are pretty adorable too.
This fairy tale house in Country Club.
A handsome Country Club Tudor.
Country Club Area (not sure exact neighborhood) with the best whitewashed brick.
Country Club with a red tile roof.
This is actually in the Westside neighborhood of KC. But it’s too good not to share.
It’s not my goal to invade anyone’s privacy, so I never like to share street addresses. But I simply can’t stop myself from this game. There are too many cool, stately, interesting, and proud homes in the Midwest.
