    Would you go with the whole Miami, streamlined, Deco thing? That fireplace and the banister is too cool. There is so much decorating and colors and furniture you could do to this thing and make it a work of art.

    Not my cup o’ tea but unusual and cool. Thanks for posting it!

    “I would art deco the crap out of this home…”

    -LLL- What a terrific comment. Seems like you are feeling a bit better which is wonderful news. Have a great weekend!

    LOVE IT. The only thing I don’t like particularly is the mirror around the fireplace. But totally love the bathroom —the room over the front door with the octagonal window. Could do so much with this. I notice they painted the exterior fireplace brick to match the siding…only up to the roof?

    Is the exterior concrete? Made to look like blocks with fake joints? I like it, especially from a distance.

    Reminds me a little of this building in Miami.

    I wish I knew what the siding was. If it was stucco, I think I would go with the Miami Deco thing.

    A fabulous house, with a very specific aesthetic, which the current decor and all the updates work against.

    Sigh.

    I want to give the house a big hug, and tell it that new owners will restore its Moderne brilliance.

    I’m so with you Kelly. I see this house as old 30s Hollywood style, with Astaire and Rogers dancing through the halls. It could be absolutely spectacular.

    This is truly a restorer’s dream come true. Hope someone in love with this style finds it.

    Party like it’s 1939!

    Yes!! I love Art Deco houses & this one is getting a raw deal — could be such a fun place. I’m with you, Kelly!

    Rare one here as residential construction during the Great Depression years (1929-1940) was slack. Had this not been a national period of economic stagnation and decline I think entire neighborhoods of Art Deco and Streamlined Moderne would have existed but the low number of built homes translates to few examples remaining today. As for tricking out this house to more strongly tie it to its era and style, sounds like an excellent idea to me.

    This house makes me want to watch a Fred & Ginger movie!! Its so nice to see a deco home that has not been too overly messed with. Your comment about going over the top with deco is so apropos. I’m surprised that there are no more deco light fixtures present. The mirror behind the fireplace was not all that unusual in those days. I’d take care of that post haste!

    Poirot mystery!

    Pending sale.

    I went “shopping” on Ross’s light fixture online store, the next owners need to buy and then design a bathroom around this one: link
