I was disturbed this morning to walk out the door and find the house across the street being demolished. The house was gutted by a fire last winter, but insurance covered the cost of renovating the house. For whatever reason, the owner has decided to raze the building and sell the lot rather than fix it. Very unfortunate. This was the most interesting and architecturally significant home in our neighborhood. We considered buying this place when it went on the market a couple of years ago, but couldn’t justify moving to a larger house no matter how beautiful it was.
