House of the Day (Reader Request, Now to be Known as RR)

Awesome call. The reader writes of this house on Longfellow between 2nd and 3rd Streets NW:

“From what I could tell driving by, its a red brick house, but they’ve painted the mortar a vivid blue, then on the trim, they’ve put lots of small blue and white dots. Overall, it has a very Caribbean feel to it. And a nice “welcome” sign above the door.”

  • Wow. Looks like someone had an awful lot of time on their hands and maybe a touch of OCD.

  • Criminal

  • It’s odd but it kind of picks up your mood just to see it.

  • Love it! Very Caribbean and happy!

  • Horiffic, but i do laugh every day as i pass it on the way to work.

  • Looks like the work of a crazy mind.

  • Too funny! I just only saw this house for the first time on Monday night, when I was driving back from “rescuing” my stranded husband at the NY Ave metro station.

  • Why oh why would anyone want to spend the time to paint mortar joints blue! I feel sorry for the neighbors that have to look at this every day.

  • I like it! The people who live here have fun with life. And if they are going to be there for a while, then good for them. Personally, I’d rather look at individuality (in well-kept houses) than boring copycat houses…, that’s one reason why I’m here instead in a townhouse community with a homeowner’s association.

  • Oh, shoot, i wanted to send this one in!

    I like it, a nice unexpected take on a row house. I love that someone would take the time to paint it like that.
