Petworth Eyesore Closeup

Remember last week when I found the stop work order on 4143 New Hampshire Ave, the Petworth Eyesore? The house even Prince of Petworth curses?

Well I went and took a few close-up photos just to document how bad the renovation is. My favorite is this one:

Do you see that total mis-match of the new addition to the original structure? I am not talking just the colors or texture, I’m talking the gaping overhangs from one structure to the next.

Might the designer been drunk? The carpenters blind? The owner insane? Regardless, the neighbours had enough. 4141 New Hampshire Ave is up for sale & rumor says is listed at $560K.

I wonder if that’s $560 for the blind, $20k less for those who have to see 4143 every day?
