A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a house in the neighborhood that had been stripped of all its shrubbery. When I got out again last week I found an even more dramatic change—a house stripped of its front porch and (I later realized) siding.
I described this house five years ago, and the picture in that blog post is far better than the “Before” picture on Google Street View (below).
Here’s what it looks like now:
When I did a little research online, I found that the house had changed hands in March. It appears that the new owner is going to completely rehab it. I think it will have a better chance of success this time, as it is in the capable hands of our most notable local architectural firm.
