I Just Like This House

That's all. Not much else to say here. It's on President Street near the BQE and it stands out. The brickwork on the facade is quite different from anything else around it. The closely set rows of three windows are unusual, as are the striking arches over the door and first-floor window. The double door is also attractive. Best of all is the way the owners have allowed the former powder-blue paint job to slowly fade away, revealing the red brick underneath. The weatherbeaten looks give the house a appealing dishabille air. Any artist, I think, would be happy here.

great building! they need to weather the door a bit so it doesn't look so much newer than the rest.
