This house is one of those that draws your eye to look at it every time you pass.  Let’s ignore for the moment the fact that the front windows don’t match, and concentrate on that magnificent glassed front entryway. I could never decide whether I liked it or not. It’s certainly dramatic, but then is muted by those curtains. Perhaps with a second storey, or a steeper roofline this would work. And definitely better windows for the other rooms to complement. But it’s all a moot point as last week when I drove by, it was gone. Nothing but an empty lot.

  1. Glad that you were able to capture it before it was completely gone. I’m fascinated by the size of the door; it seems out of proportion to the standard windows above the evergreens.

  2. It’s a sight to behold.

  3. Paradise to a parking lot. A shame. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Gone? Oh no! Good thing you took this when you did. It would be interesting to see if whatever goes up on the lot has a hint of this interesting style, in memory of the original 🙂

  5. Apologise for being late this week…the details do not necessarily make the house – except (for me anyway 🙂 is the view above and around the door, as the trim seems to be a burst of sunrays aiming up to the sky. Different looking in construction, although as you suggest, it is a moot point now. Perhaps the new abode can better integrate its details a bit better…

  6. Wow, that does draw the eye…I think I don’t like, but not sure. Maybe in a different house….on the side of a mountain with a spectacular view….or even on the ocean or one of the Great Lakes.
