Penny Lane In Amarillo? This Beatles Subdivision Is Amazing.
So first things first, I have to give credit to Reddit user clawsinyoureyes for this one, because I'm not sure I ever would've known about it otherwise.
This, however, has to be one of the coolest things I've seen just about anywhere.
In between Soncy and Helium Rd, there's a housing subdivision that appears to be pretty new. Now, new builds aren't exactly uncommon around the Amarillo area these days, but creativeness to the neighborhood is something that is different...and refreshing.
Especially when you take a bunch of old Beatles classics and turn them into an entire neighborhood.
Look at that! Each street name is a different Beatles song, and I'm all about it. I think this may be the first time I've ever seen an entire subdivision named for a band, and there are very few that are TRULY worthy of having an entire neighborhood named after their work.
Here's what I REALLY love about this neighborhood. The houses on each street are unique and different from the other streets around it. It's fitting, as The Beatles songs were exactly the same way. Different and unique at every turn.
Let's take a walk through The Beatles neighborhood.
We'll start on Yesterday Lane. The homes on this street look to be more of your smaller, family type of homes. Single-level, moderately sized houses with that famous Texas brick look. They're charming homes, just like the personality of The Beatles.
STRAWBERRY FIELDS DRIVE
The houses on Strawberry Fields Dr. look to be somewhat similar to Yesterday Lane. However, it looks like they're bigger in size and have a bit more architecture to them on the outside. You can see the points of the homes are a bit more defined and higher up in the air.
LET IT BE
This appears to be the safest street in the neighborhood thanks to the State Trooper car parked in the driveway here. All kidding aside, Let It Be appears to be the street with so much larger homes than the previous two streets we've been down. They also seem to have the largest yards so far.
HEY JUDE LANE
Hey Jude Lane gives us some large, single-level style homes with some different color schemes to them. You can see how both the homes pictured have more of a two-tone look to them giving them a bit of a depth we haven't seen in previous homes in the neighborhood.
HOLD YOUR HAND DRIVE
This looks like it's an aptly named street, as the homes on Hold Your Hand Drive appear to be classic family homes. When you look at them, you just imagine the home being filled with a set of parents trying to wrangle up a few kids.
Help Lane shows us some homes that have some high peaks, which you may need "help" getting to when it's time to put the lights on the house for the holidays.
We finish off with the street everyone would probably pay a bit of a premium to live on, just so they can say they live on Penny Lane. In all seriousness, you can see Penny Lane is home to some of the larger houses in the neighborhood. You see the house with a four-car garage, and some barn-type doors to lead you to the back. Big homes for a big song.
