This will be here soon in Virginia Highland. If you aren't familiar with the neighborhood, you might be shocked at how tiny the lot is: .193 acre.
It's very cute I think and in keeping. Dovecotes for the kiddies, stone details, lentils, segmental arches, a couple of curvy roof-lines - I like. Trulia lists it at $1,089,000. That's about 3x what the teardown cost.
It's by John Willis Homes. They are doing a bunch in the neighborhood right now, good work, not McMansioning. I met Mr. Willis at an open house a few weeks ago, lot's of energy and passion for good houses.
There was the "before."
They've kept the old garage. It sits a little crooked, not perpendicular to the street.
The "no garage door" look is what's most charming about the elevation. Around here a visible garage sticks out like a sore thumb. Our garages are out back, if we have one at all. They are pretty good for lawn mowers, not so good for modern cars.
