Holding My Breath

August 5, 2017

I’ve been watching this house in my neighborhood for years, trying to get a glimpse of what I thought it might be through the decades of overgrown trees and shrubs. One day as I drove past, much of the overgrowth had been cut back exposing a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired ranch tucked into a heavily treed lot. A little research provided a bit more information…lived in by the original owner, the architect that designed and built it in the early 1950’s…three bedrooms, one and a half baths…a fireplace…all packed into a simplequietmodern low slung 1700 square feet. Lovely. Then a “for sale” sign went up and as quickly came down. Sold? Simply removed from the market? Hard to say. I’m holding my breath waiting for the bulldozer that is more likely to arrive to level it making way for yet another Mc Mansion.
