Who would have thought that we could find a WTH in Woodruff Place? Admittedly, it is not easy–there are so many great restorations and waiting-to-be-restoreds that it was pretty hard actually.

Today’s selection has been restored, but suffers from typical mid-20th century renovations. Metal storm door and windows frames, metal porch columns and railings, concrete porch floor, replacement windows on the second floor, fake shutters, and replacement siding all steal from the house’s historical architectural character. Yet, even for the remuddling, many original elements have been preserved, like the leaded glass and chimneys, that could be highlights in a complete restoration.

Overall, the house is a good example of “Why the h*ll did they do that 30-50 years ago?”
