Gate to an old estate
This is the entrance to an estate that looks to be still intact, not broken up into smaller lots that have been sold off. But this is in an area where lots of "old money" still owns property.
A longer view
An attractive entrance, don't you agree?
I am linking to Good Fences HERE.
I just can't imagine living in a house with a huge gate like this... but it is very impressive.
Beautiful gates, beautiful photos.
Sure is a good fence and lovely gate. The splash of red makes the shot interesting.
Beautiful, especially in the snow.
It is a beautiful entrance, I love the gate and pillars.. Pretty photos, enjoy your day!
Thats a nice combination of colours and textures - and I think it does say a 'old money' rather well!!

A fabulous entry - it conjures up all manner of thoughts to begin writing a novel!
Old money as opposed to new money:) Love the gate. Hug B
very attractive indeed !snow makes everything so romanctic !
Beautiful gate and entry. Nice that some of the larger estates aren't broken up.
A beautiful fence and gate. I love that stonework... takes a lot of skill. Great shots :D)
Well, I'm glad that you finally got some photos of the gate of our summer home. We tend to go to Florida in the winter, but make sure that someone puts a red ribbon on the gate.
Oh yes, even though I live in this snowy land of Minnesota, I can and still appreciate a great winter scene! This is marvelous! Lovely old place too!
i like that longer view.. so beautiful and I am thinking what is down that drive is beautiful to...
Both are very simple captures, but very striking!

Quite a pretty entrance!
Lovely. I agree.
Lowell is too funny :) beautiful old entrance EG.
lovely, We have a big old house with an old gate like this in our neighborhood. There is something so graceful about them.
That is so beautiful. I love the bits of red, and snow makes such pretty photos.
I think a gate and gateposts in front of a house, whether it's a posh mansion or something a bit more humble, gives a residence a lot of character and a certain look of "don't mess with me" look!
Very stately, what a grand entrance.
really beautiful with the red bows and pine bows. perfect. :)
Nice certainly worthy gate throughout the property. Regards.
Just lovely. Beautiful fence and terrific composition and framing.
This is just the sort of gate used in old horror movies as an entrance to a spooky old house. Great picture.
With a gate like that, I'm sure there is an equally impressive house inside. Very nice!
That's quite an entryway! Wonder what the house looks like?
It's a lovely entrance, EG!
Oh, wow, I love those stone posts...the gate is beautiful, too.
What a grand entrance!
I do like gates and this has also the plus of some snow!
Oh, such a beautiful gate!! I love it and your captures are terrific!! Your composition is superb as always!! Hope you're getting ready for a great weekend!! Enjoy!
a grand entrance, made more beautiful by the snow!!!!
Majestic and festive!
This is simply beautiful, and the snow makes it even prettier! The small red bow adds a lot.
Attractive entrance, and I liked the snow too.
Very attractive entrance especially with the red bow.
this is a beautiful entrance with a beautiful gate and stone pillars.
Lovely photos, and I agree: The entrance is super nice!!
what an inviting gate, so pretty.
I'm still grinning at Lowell's comment.
The first shot is especially well framed. Sometimes the scale of "old money" amazes me. Well, new money, too.
A beautiful entrance. I would feel quite elegant going on in my slippers to fetch the morning paper.
It's gorgeous! Is that a pond in the background?
Very nice gate- wonder why they left it open. It looks like they haven't shut it since the last few snows.
It's a beauty and I love the perspective from which you snapped the pics.
Adore the attention to detail in this stone work. And the gate design complements the stones so beautifully.
Yes I do agree. Lovely entryway to this property. I really like the pattern in the gate.
That is a pretty scene.
Definitely agree, especially in the snow!
Beautiful Christmas card shots.

The snow added a nice touch.
It's beautiful, a throwback maybe to another era.
Beautiful entrance and gate.
It is a lovely gate, EG. Beautiful ironwork and beautiful stonework posts.
Oh my, those are gorgeous gates and pillars. Great shots EG!
The gate and its stone pillars complement each other so well. Imposinr!
wow, that´s gorgeous and the snow added to it :)
These are excellent photos! Great find!
So inviting! Wonder if a warm fire and cup of hot chocolate awaits those who enter. :)
