Crazy Stairway

What do you think about this crazy stairway in the front of the house? I’m not quite sure why but it makes me think of an insane asylum…or an institution of some sort.

  • good god, you do get around! I recognize all these houses, the nice garage in Dupont, the house of the day, and the crazy stairwell house in Mt. Pleasant. maybe i have lived here way too long.

  • I must admit to being a part-owner of this home. It was originally a single family home, and at that time it had a “normal” porch. When it was converted to a 3-unit condo in the 80’s, the fire code people required the top unit have a fire escape at the front of the building. And therefore, the ugly porch.
