Across the road from the stained glass window of Sunday I spotted this wonderful old house and wondered why I had never noticed it and all the fabulous details along its eaves. (Enlarge to see this.) When I got home and googled it I realized that it had previously been covered in ivy which was lovely but it did hide a lot! It turns out that the house was built in 1890 as a mansion but over the decades had become a rooming house until the 1990s when it was restored to a single family dwelling and after being sold last year it is being gutted again and upgraded once more as the area has once again become highly desirable (and pricey)!
I found some interior shots from the sale info of a year ago here. It sure surprised me.
