I love the awnings, if only because houses of this era typically had them–hey, there wasn’t any air conditioning, they  had to get creative. This double is simple, but has so much potential. While there have been many restorations elsewhere in Herron-Morton Place, this one has been boarded up for at least a decade. And this is a picture from a year or two ago. It looked much worse last time I passed by.

Here’s my prayer: if someone buys a house like this as a development opportunity, why not give the buyer a year or two to get it fixed up, or start raising the taxes exponentially if there’s no forward motion.

Or: got any better ideas?
