Have you always wanted to see a post-war bungalow collide with a late 1990s arbor/screened-in porch/car port? Look no further! This Meridian-Kessler house in the 4500 block of Carollton Avenue will satisfy your curious architectural nature. In most cases, columns lend an air of grandeur to a building—these brutish columns make the house look short and stumpy. Throw in a few dark screens and the facade could win a storm trooper look-a-like contest. Just when you think you’ve had enough, a wrought iron door provides the coup-de-grâce for the screened atrocity. You’ll also notice that one of the unique windows flanking the fireplace houses a window a/c unit.

    Just my thoughts, 1049, 1035,1012 Hosbrook is no help for a historic area. Also the one whatever at the corner of Elm and Grove Av Give me an older home any day. Or even an empty lot that looks good. For sure they would not put one of these in Fletcher Place or Old North Side. These are no more than newly built Bungalarbo or what ever.
