I think folks have mentioned this before but I finally got a photo of it. It is the cylindrical house with the EasyGard wrap around it that has looked like this for years. It is right near the LeDroit Park metal sign on Florida Ave, NW.
Do you think the original renovators just went bankrupt? It is such a sweet property, I wish it would be auctioned off if it is going to remain in this state of disrepair.
