This is how far they got in half a day, yesterday, Monday. The demo guy said they'd be done by Tuesday evening.
I got a few "before" pictures. I spotted it just in time as they were removing the asbestos and other hazardous materials last week.
The demo guy said it was well built and they could tell. The back part was added later and not so well built.
It was quite appealing but the neighborhood demographics have left it in the dust.
I'll bet the aluminum siding on the gables isn't original.
The prominent chimney needed no apology. See Kyle's post on chimneys; we are all chimney lovers.
If you aren't familiar with in-town Atlanta, Amsterdam divides Morningside to the north from Virginia-Highlands to the south. Both are as desirable as it gets within the city limits. This house in in Morningside side of the street.
Lots (teardowns) start about about $300K for 1/5 acre or so. In fact there is another teardown two houses from this one.
Here are a few crunches and a look west and east. As said, if you aren't from around here, you wouldn't guess the desirability.
A little more crunch.
I'll watch and report back to you.
