I used to live just around the corner from this building. It is a house I would have loved to own. Too late!
I think it was actually being lived in before the fire. Maybe old wiring?
This is a horrible, horrible shame. What an adorable place. I'm so sorry that you were not able to get it before this awful thing happened. It was indeed beautiful!
Yes MaryAlice. I was horrified when I was passing one day and saw what had happened.
I have always been fascinated by the shape of the building and by the very steep roof. The narrow windows probably made it quite dark inside but I loved it anyway. I do hope that it can be rescued. :(
There has now been a second mystery fire at this building. See the damage now.
