House of the Day

Every couple of months when I wander through this section of Cleveland Park I always expect that there will be a huge addition to this house. There never is. I don’t know if it’s the shutters or what but I always stop to appreciate this little house. I feel like most people hate this house when I’ve talked about it in the past – any other fans?

    This house says “I’m glad you came home to me.” Can one ask anymore of its occupant?

    Love it. I want one!

  • Sammy

    This is darling. I adore it!

  • Nope

    Looks like a tear down to me.

  • Anon

    I love it cause it probably makes all of the neighbors in their million dollar homes crazy.

  • Elza

    Love! My love for quirky houses like this are why I never want to live in a place with a strict neighborhood association. And why my future neighbors will probably hate me…

  • Nikki

    What an eyesore. I bet there’s a neighborhood countdown waiting for those owners to die.

  • SSRS

    With a little white paint it would look SOO much better.

    What street is this on?

  • Jazz

    It’s on Ordway, between 34th and Connecticut.

    @Nikki– Pretty sure it sold to younger owners a few years back so no deaths coming soon. Sorry!

    • Nikki

      Younger as in under 80? Because between that old school antenna and the satellite dish, I can’t imagine that place isn’t owned by folks who reek of mothballs and various ointments. I sense the presence of a rotary phone as well.

      But all joking aside, a coat of paint would make a lot of difference here.

  • Florista

    Don’t like the paint job or the giant satellite dish, but the house is adorable just the same!

    Is it an old pop-up? The first floor looks brick, but the second floor looks siding.
    It’s cute.

  • Local PW

    Clearly a den of Dutch spies with those shutters, and what is up with that satellite dish?

    • ah

      Um, they’re spies, remember?
