Yesterday, I did a post about a fabulous house in New York which needs a savior.
Today, Mischa contacted me. He grew up in the house from 1968 to 1987. And—drum roll, please—he had pictures!!!!!!!!
These first two images are from yesterday:
The house had a fire after Mischa’s family sold the property in 1987. Mischa wrote that the later owner hired a crew to remove some paint from the exterior and, in the process, set the house on fire. Even though the fire department was across the street, the crew fled rather than alert anybody.
Today, the interior, from the few images online, appears to be gutted with its plaster gone. Is this related to the fire? How much plaster is gone? Are some portions of the interior intact?
There is so much still unknown about this fascinating house, and I will post updates as information becomes available!
I am powerfully drawn to houses like this, and in such condition. If I could afford it, I would take this project on without hesitation. What fun!
