The house across the Pond

The view from my backyard - the house is always spot lit.  Some nights the water on the pond is so still it casts a perfect reflection of the historic Patterson Farmhouse - the Patterson family has been gone for near 40 years.  The Pattersons were amoung the first settlers to Hunter River and built and operated Pattersons saw and grist mills.  The house was built as a Central Dormer Style and later the rear kitchen wing was added giving it the look of the typical Island-ell style.
Here's an old photo taken from the east, pondside.
