Beautiful Blue

Posted September 26, 2012 in Altoona, Community Featured

When you stroll by this home on Scenic View Boulevard, there is much to look at.

The big, blue home towers over a gorgeous front yard full of elegantly-placed ornamental grasses, roses and seasonal potted flowers. A fountain’s simple trickle eases your spirit as you pass by it. The vinca growing below is a fresh, pretty pink flower. Its leaves are a hearty thick green.

Sherryl McComb has created a beautiful yard around her home.

To no surprise, homeowner Sherryl McComb loves to do yard work. The outdoor beauty continues around the home and in the backyard. Vivid geraniums, ornamental flowering trees and hostas make a peaceful place to watch the sun go down. All this outlines the backyard leaving the center for green grass.

“I like having something bloom during each season of the year,” says McComb.

Under the sun porch is a cozy table and comfy chairs, again, surrounded by healthy, sweet autumn  plants — a perfect place for Sunday brunch with family. The tall post light is ideal for night-time relaxing.

McComb also likes that the neighborhood is so well taken care of.

“It seems that everyone keeps up their yard and landscaping around here,” she says. “The mature trees make it so peaceful here.”

Inside this 1992 Victorian-like home it’s just as lovely. The solid oak woodwork is one of the many reasons McComb bought this home. The builder used lots of oak in the homes he constructed, making each one unique.

The open kitchen is just the right size for McComb to entertain her Sunday school class and her family for the holidays. Her five children and 11 grandchildren fit perfectly when they come over.

This home is richly decorated, offering practical comfort in many different areas for guests to relax, talk and enjoy the surroundings.

The sunroom facing west is another wonderful spot in this home. The many windows make it easy to enjoy the backyard foliage every morning. This small, cozy space is where McComb reads her daily devotions. It’s a peaceful and warm room, painted and decorated in soft taupes.

“I love this home, and I love the area,” McComb says. “It’s peaceful, and I like that.”
